  • Littleton rider finally has Saye

    LAKEWOOD — The scars on Tucker Saye’s left elbow are a reminder of the pain he’s endured the past few years. It is where he had a stainless steel rod placed to repair a serious injury in 2009 at Thunder Valley.

  • By the numbers: Columbine...

    It’s a given that sports and numbers go hand and hand. With the conclusion of the recent 2011-12 high school athletic season, the Columbine Courier takes a look back at the season that was through numbers. The following are 10 numbers that identify the recently-completed prep season.

  • Putting leaves Lubar just short

    AURORA — There were nerves Shannon Lubar admitted, but she could handle that. After all, she was playing in the final group in the final round of the 5A state girls golf championship on May 22. Plus, the Chatfield senior golfer came to Aurora Hills Golf Course with her game face on.
    Unfortunately, what she didn’t have — at least for two holes — was her short game. Lubar’s putting was just enough of a struggle to deny her of state supremacy.

  • Late goal seals Columbine’s fate

    ENGLEWOOD — The fourth-ranked Columbine Rebels boys lacrosse team had its best season to date ended by No. 1 and nationally-ranked Arapahoe 10-9 in the state semifinals May 16 at Englewood High School.
    The pressure was intense for the Rebels, and they knew it. So did everyone else. Nevertheless, from the moment the game started Columbine was on fire. The Rebels fought to control the ball, knowing that doing so meant controlling the game.

  • Penalty kicks turn out to be...

    LAKEWOOD — Ember Albertson pulled up her white Columbine Lady Rebels jersey, wiped away the tears from her eyes, and then led her teammates in one last cheer for the season.
    The finality of a season in which Columbine sandwiched a 16-game winning streak between a pair of penalty-kick defeats was sinking in. But these Lady Rebels had nothing to hang their heads about.

  • Eagles come up short in extras

    DENVER — It took 10 innings, but when all was said and done the Dakota Ridge baseball team left All-City Park on May 20 knowing that second-ranked Grandview, not it, would be advancing in the 5A state tournament.
    The heartbreaking 3-1 10-inning loss was a tough blow to the Eagles’ nine seniors. They, like everyone else, thought this was their year to go all the way. Making it to the playoffs as the No. 6 seed is no small feat. Holding a competitive team such as Grandview to one run for seven innings was practically colossal.

  • Carter-led Chargers take 8th

    FORT COLLINS — The Chatfield Chargers took eighth place with 112 points at the 2012 boys state swimming championships at EPIC Pool on May 19.
    The excitement had been building in anticipation of this meet all year. For Chatfield senior Bryce Carter, this year’s state meet was the culmination of four years of hard work and dedication. Carter, an All-America contender, took third in the 50-meter freestyle with a time of 21.40 seconds and fourth in the 100 freestyle in 46.68.

  • Nagging hamstring injury spoils...

    LAKEWOOD — This was definitely not the way Erik Gaytan wanted to go out.
    The defending 400-meter champion re-aggravated a nagging hamstring injury May 17 in the boys’ 100-meter preliminaries at the 5A state track and championships at Jeffco Stadium which would hamper him throughout the weekend.
