  • 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.

  • Edwards, long ball drive CHS to...

    Andrew Edwards may never again have a game like he did May 5 against Dakota Ridge. But for one day the Chatfield first baseman was swinging the bat as if he were the second coming of Barry Bonds.

    And, oh, what an appropriate time to do that.

    Edwards homered three times in four at-bats, driving in six runs as the host Chargers scored a 9-5 victory in what turned out to be an elimination game to determine which teams would qualify for the 5A state baseball playoffs out of the Jeffco League.

  • Tigers pounce on Columbine

    Columbine swimming head coach Kristi Marosy knew her team was in for a long day against a very good Lakewood team.

    “They’re probably in the top three of the league this year in 5A,” Marosy said. “It’s gonna be a good meet and the guys are gonna give it all they got, but Lakewood’s a tough squad.”

    Columbine fell behind early, trailing 70-32 at the diving break and couldn’t catch up, despite a late charge, as they fell to the Tigers 152-121 on April 30 at Ridge Recreation Center.

  • Hamilton leads Rebels to tough...

    ARVADA — Kristen Hamilton was either going to break something or break free April 30 against Ralston Valley.

    It turned out to be the latter.

    Hamilton highlighted a physical 80 minutes of soccer with a breakaway goal six minutes into the second half as the shorthanded Rebels held on for a 1-0 Class 5A Jefferson County League victory over the Mustangs at the North Area Athletic Complex.

    “I knew coming in it was going to be a physical game,” Hamilton said.

  • Chargers till Farmers

    LAKEWOOD — If it were baseball, Chatfield’s Greg Kelsic might have gotten a shaving créme pie in the face from his teammates for his standout performance and subsequent media attention.

    As it were, the senior just had to struggle through the sight of senior Nick Nedeau’s bare chest squished and rubbing up against the locker room window at Trailblazer Stadium.

    “We’re a real loose bunch,” Kelsic said.
