    VOLLEYBALL
    Columbine hosting youth girls volleyball camp

    The camp is open to all girls entering 6th-8th grade.

    The cost is $45 and includes a T-shirt. Please bring court/tennis shoes, knee pads and a water bottle with your child’s name on it. 

  • Eagles turn the tables on...

    Whenever Chatfield and Dakota Ridge get together it usually makes for a competitive game. Last week was no exception. After Chatfield defeated Dakota Ridge, 4-3, in nine innings on July 6 at Chatfield, Dakota Ridge returned the favor by winning the rematch 2-1 a day later at Dakota Ridge High School.

  • Programs adding AEDs to safety...

    As safety in athletics has become more of a priority, athletic programs are incorporating Automated External Defibrillator (AED) into their safety kits. But, the life saving piece of equipment is strictly optional.

    While it’s a fact that injuries are a risk when playing sports, few people realize that athletes, despite their physical conditioning, are at a far higher risk of dying from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) than from any other sports-related illness or injury. 

  • Batter’s Box ace injured in loss

    BRIGHTON — It should’ve been a routine play, but it wasn’t. Then again, not much went right for Columbine’s Batter’s Box summer baseball team on July 7.

    Starting pitcher and staff ace Mike Thill tried to retrieve a slow roller hit by Brighton leadoff batter Ricky Lane to open the second inning. Unfortunately, Thill slipped on the infield grass that had been dampened by rain the night before, reportedly dislocating his right kneecap.

  • League champions crowed at...

    Ken Caryl Little League concluded its 11th season on July 4 with an end-of-season celebration at Ken Caryl Community Park West. Twenty-seven teams and more than 400 family members and friends gathered for a final tribute to the season.

  • KCLL teams excel at Liberty...

    Ken Caryl Little League entered four teams in four brackets at the annual Littleton Liberty Blast baseball tournament. 

    KCLL teams representing the 8U, 9U, 10U and 12U divisions played teams from across the Denver metropolitan area in a tournament dedicated to the men and women in our armed forces.  

    Three of the four teams reached the title games for their respective brackets. 

  • Teams embrace laid-back...

    Meet Abdullah Musleh for the Dakota Ridge Eagles. And Austin Genthe. And Jack Anderson. All wearing No. 20. That, in a nutshell, is the laid-back nature of summer basketball.

    “It could be confusing for the guy keeping track of fouls. It just kind of happened today,” Musleh said.

    Yes, the atmosphere is rather easygoing compared to the high school regular season, which runs from December through the state finals in March, but the summer season is important in building for what’s to come.

  • Dems’ persistence pays off for...

    Dylan Dems could’ve sulked after he was pinch hit for in the sixth inning, but he didn’t. Instead, the rising Chatfield junior proved his mettle when he got another chance in the eighth.

    The Chargers second baseman sent George Couglin’s 1-1 pitch — his 104th pitch overall — up the middle with two outs in the eighth and pinch runner Cody Cordova scored from second for a 4-3 victory over Lakewood in Game 1 of a doubleheader. The Tigers bounced back to win Game 2 by a 6-1 score.

  • Selfless Wallin, Eagles sweep...

    Most players that have been asked to step up for Dakota Ridge this summer in big situations have done so. Dakota Wallin was no exception on June 29 against Smoky Hill at Dakota Ridge High School. 

    Wallin pitched a complete game scattering eight hits with five strikeouts and only one walk leading the Eagles to a 4-2 victory in the first game of a doubleheader. Dakota Ridge won the second game 12-1.

  • Dungey repeats at Thunder Valley

    LAKEWOOD — Winning isn’t anything new for Ryan Dungey. And neither is winning at Thunder Valley. It just took a little more effort this go-around and holding off Ryan Villopoto to do so.

    Dungey, a 10-time winner and the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross champion in 2010 in the 450 Class, took the lead on the third lap of the second moto at the Thunder Valley National on June 25 and held off Villopoto for his second straight win at the track.
