    Dakota Wallin added 13 points and Dylan Hoffman scored 10 for Dakota Ridge (3-4).
    The Eagles led 34-23 at halftime before blowing the game open over  the final two quarters.

  • Rebels, Snow weather Tigers to...

    Senior center Jon Snow scored Columbine’s first seven points and finished with 18 to lead the Rebels past visiting Lakewood 60-46 on Dec. 16.
    “We just wanted to come out strong, and it just happened that I got the points with my teammates helping out a lot,” Snow said.
    Columbine (4-0) led the Tigers 30-23 at the half and survived a Lakewood threat in the third quarter led by Tigers forward Nermin Kozic.

  • Chargers forward’s 2nd goal ices...

    It would’ve been easy for Tyler Seltenreich to get down. After all, his Chatfield Chargers surrendered a two-goal lead in the third period to visiting Standley Lake on Dec. 16 at the Edge Ice Arena.

  • Coaches Invite win boosts...

    THORNTON — Maybe it was her nerves, but in the moments before Ashley Horodyski took to the pool for her 100-yard butterfly finals on Dec. 17 at the Colorado Coaches Invitational the Columbine senior was lining up in Lane 6. Unfortunately, she was marked to be in Lane 5.
    As it turned out, it probably didn’t matter which lane she was in. She didn’t have much to be worried about.

  • Lady Chargers suffer 1st loss of...

    Chatfield suffered its first loss of the season to visiting Doherty, losing 67-61 in a non-league contest Dec. 9 at Chatfield Senior High School.
    Though the Lady Chargers led most of the game, Doherty exploded in the fourth quarter by outscoring Chatfield 20-10 to win on the road.
    “They’re a good team and they really played with a calmness,” Chatfield head coach Mike Deutsch said. “We got a little too hesitant and a little too rushed when they started coming back, and we just got a little anxious.”  

  • Tallmadge, Rebels win ugly affair

    As far as hockey games, Columbine’s rivarly showdown with Dakota Ridge was not a pretty sight. Not necessarily for the offensive explosion that the Rebels’ Orion Tallmadge put on early or the late goals the Eagles produced, but instead for the sheer angst that took its toll on both teams.
    Despite that, Tallmadge scored three times and Charlie Marchese made 37 saves as Columbine won its second straight 4-3 over Dakota Ridge on Dec. 10 at the Edge Ice Arena.

  • Rebels, Chargers expected more

    Mark Baltazar expects Columbine to go through some growing pains, especially with 13 of the 29 wrestlers in the program being freshmen, most of whom have never competed before.
    Even still, he expected to get a little more than he got at the Columbine Invitational on Dec. 10. The Rebels, with only seven wrestlers competing, placed 10th out of 13 teams with 51 points, placing just two wrestlers in the top four of their respective weight classes.
