    Eight days, especially for a team on a 20-game winning streak, is a long time between games. Chatfield’s first-quarter shooting woes showed as much. Yet, even after shooting just 4-for-20 from the field in the game’s opening eight minutes, it was no excuse.

    When you’re losing late, the game clock is a bigger enemy than a Monday morning alarm clock.  
    Columbine’s boys basketball team saw its season come to an end as a furious fourth-quarter rally came up short in a 61-47 loss to Arapahoe on March 2 in the second round of the 5A state tournament at Columbine High School. Arapahoe (18-7) advances to the Sweet 16 where it will face Fossil Ridge on March 6.
    “We needed one more quarter. We could’ve had it,” Columbine senior Ty McMinimee said.
