  • Chatfield finds net early

    LAKEWOOD — Getting early pressure on the opposition has been something the Chatfield Chargers have been looking for. And against Jeffco League foe Pomona in their conference opener Sept. 20 at Lakewood Memorial Field it proved to be vital.
    Not to worry, the Chargers scored twice in the game’s opening 13 minutes, including Lee Holmes’ tally that proved to be the eventual game-winner, as Chatfield bounced back from its lone loss of the season with a 3-1 victory over the Panthers.

  • Dakota Ridge packs it together...

    To ask Dakota Ridge freshman Cayli Hume there were two people who helped her pull through in her first Liberty Bell Invitational – God and teammate Vanessa Gonzalez.
    Spiritually, the man above was doing His part while her junior teammate was inspiring her on the course Sept. 14 at Heritage High School.
    “I definitely doubted myself a lot. Basically, I just struck with my teammate Vanessa. I wouldn’t have been able to do that without her and without help from God. He’s out there with me. He really strengthens me,” Hume said.

  • Long ball propels Chatfield to...

    Why was six afraid of seven? Because seven, eight, nine. That’s how the joke goes, but on Sept. 13 the joke could have gone more like this — why were the Lady Rebels afraid of batters six, seven and eight? Because each of them homered to help Chatfield shut out host Columbine 7-0.
    The numbers tell the story. Jersey numbers six, seven and eight each homered. No. 6 played batted in the seven hole, while No. 7 was in the six hole and the end score was 7-0. Eerie? Just a little.
