  • Q&A: Five questions with...

    Robbie McEwen was a member of Chatfield Senior High’s 2001 5A state football championship team. He moved to Nebraska where he played at Division I-AA Drake before transferring to Division-I Nebraska. Now he’s training the art of long snapping while also practicing law. The Columbine Courier’s Michael Hicks recently caught up with McEwen.

    1. While at Chatfield, you were a key cog on the 2001 5A state championship team that went 14-0, including a 9-3 win over Fairview in the finals. What was that season like for you?

  • 2011-12 Coach of the Year: Andy...

    Andy Lowry says he had no idea that the 2011 Columbine football season would be as special as it was. But, then again, that’s how the 48-year-old head coach approaches every season.
    Every year is a new year, but there was something special about the Rebels last year. From the time Columbine boarded a plane for Florida and a preseason kickoff classic through Dec. 3 at Sports Authority Field at Mile HIgh when it won its fifth 5A state title since 1999 the Rebels were a team of, well, destiny.

  • 2011-12 Athlete of the Year:...

    Very little, if at all, did Cameron McDondle practice the final three weeks of the 2011 season. The Columbine Rebels running back couldn’t.
    Torn ligaments in his right ankle suffered in a second-round playoff game with Fairview severly hampered him. But it didn’t stop him. Far from it. Practice or no practice he was going to be there come game day.
    “I figured once I get on the field and the adrenaline is going I don’t care what injuries I have as long as I can run and perform at my best,” McDondle said.

  • Dakota Ridge ace Wilson drafted...

    Dakota Ridge graduate and right-handed pitcher Steven Wilson was drafted with the last pick of the 35th round — the 1,088th pick overall — by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2012 amateur draft June 6.

    The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder went 7-1 with a 2.66 earned-run average for the Eagles this past season. He struck out 70, while walking just 15. The 17-year-old signed a letter-of-intent earlier this year to play Division I baseball at the University of Santa Clara (Calif.).

    The Dakota Ridge baseball team rounded out three days of play in the Kyle Blakeman tournament June 3 with a 6-5 extra-innings win against Wheat Ridge at Dakota Ridge High School. The Eagles concluded the tournament 4-1.
