  • Rebels mistakes end season

     

    GREENWOOD VILLAGE - Cherry Creek had the more efficient offense. Cherry Creek had the smothering defense. And Cherry Creek won all but a handful of the face-offs.

  • Chargers’ late flurry...

    AURORA — James Sharp did everything he could possibly do to keep Chatfield’s season alive. That included scoring four goals, the last one coming when all hope seemed lost.

    But what the senior midfielder and his teammates couldn’t do was get that one last elusive tally in sudden-death overtime. That belonged to Regis Jesuit’s Marcus Walker, whose only goal of the game gave the host Raiders a 7-6 win May 15 in the boys lacrosse state quarterfinals at Lou Kellogg Stadium.

  • Lubar, Chatfield capture regional

    LAKEWOOD — It was a day to remember for the Chatfield Chargers girls golf team at the 5A regional on May 13 at Fox Hollow Golf Course.

    The team won its first regional championship, posting a team score of 252, 17 shots better than second-place Ralston Valley.

    Also present at the regional were Dakota Ridge and Columbine, who would finish seventh and eighth, respectively, with scores of 293 and 299. While they did not qualify for state, both will send individuals who did.

  • Rebels put it in cruise control...

     

  • Pesky Chargers come up short

     

    PARKER - Brandon Mikulka homered and Tanner Grabinowski drove in two runs as eighth-seeded Ponderosa held off Chatfield, 4-2, on May 16 in the 5A District 2 tournament.

  • Eagles win, but Lobos slowly...

    LAKEWOOD — In the final game of the regular season, both Dakota Ridge and Conifer finished in way in which they can both be proud.

    The Eagles got the girls lacrosse win, 15-6, on May 8 at Trailblazer Stadium to finish above .500 for the season, while an improved Lobos team hung tough for a half before giving way.

    The game was fairly even in the first half as the Lobos stayed within striking distance, but a Marie McDonnell goal with 7.4 seconds left in the half gave the Eagles (8-7 overall, 4-5 5A JeffCo) a three-goal lead heading into intermission.

  • Rebels hold on, just barely

    If Columbine could’ve started its first-round boys lacrosse state playoff game with Littleton any better head coach Dan Geiger probably doesn’t know how.

  • Stall tactic doesn’t...

    LAKEWOOD — It wasn’t a matter of if Columbine would score. It was just a matter of when.

    And how many times.

    Ralston Valley’s girls lacrosse team held the ball in a watching-paint dry stall to open the May 8 game at Trailblazer Stadium. But like the Rebels had done 14 times previously this season they took control of the regular-season finale — a 14-5 victory over the host Mustangs — which served as little more than a postseason tune-up for Columbine.

  • Chatfield stuns Columbine in...

    LAKEWOOD — When Columbine and Chatfield play each other, you can throw the record book out the window. This was evident on May 4 as the Chargers beat the Rebels in every aspect of the game in a 6-0 girls soccer romp at Lakewood Memorial Field.

    For the Rebels, the loss snapped a 12-game winning streak while the Chargers played their most complete game of the season, constantly applying pressure on Columbine.

  • Chatfield, Columbine doubles...

    Chatfield’s four doubles teams and No. 2 and 3 singles — Katrine Ross and Rachel Frisz — qualified for the 5A state girls tennis tournament at the Region 2 tournament, hosted by Chatfield, on May 5.

    Ross and Frisz took second place, while the doubles teams — Kimberly Arfsten and Molly Reynolds (No. 1), Sara Palmer and Madi Mamaghani (No. 2), Carrie Ford and Lindsie Ford (No. 3) and Stephanie Watson and Kathleen McGuire (No. 4) won regional championships.
