  • Chatfield boys show promise at...

    FORT COLLINS — Although it’s still early in the season, the Chatfield boys swim team showed promise at the Dick Rush Memorial Invite at EPIC pool on Saturday.

    The boys finished the meet with a team score of 67.000 points and tied Douglas County High School for 13th place out of 37 teams.

  • Winter sports all-conference...

    Following is a list of all-conference selections in the 5A Jeffco League for the winter sports season:

    BOYS BASKETBALL

  • Chatfield dominant against...

    LAKEWOOD — After a disappointing 2010 season in which Chatfield went just 5-10, the Lady Chargers are looking like a force to be reckoned with in 2011. Already sporting big victories over Cherokee Trail and Cherry Creek‘s No. 2 team, Chatfield showed Evergreen it’s ready for a big year with a 24-4 victory over the Lady Cougars on March 24 at Trailblazer Stadium. 

  • Sebald’s early goal all Eagles...

    LAKEWOOD — Damon Smerchek thought his Dakota Ridge varsity girls soccer team could’ve played better, that the Lady Eagles didn’t play to their potential. He felt that his team left a number of goals out on the field March 24 at Lakewood Memorial Field against Lakewood.

    But the one goal it did get from junior midfielder Hayley Sebald proved to be just enough. Her first goal of the season just 13 minutes, 16 seconds into the game was all Dakota Ridge needed for a 1-0 victory against previously-unbeaten Lakewood.

  • Chargers nearly blow Rodgers’...

    When your pitcher has a dominant performance you expect to win. But you don’t expect to need extra innings to do it.

    Yet that’s exactly what happened to the Chatfield Chargers, who got five superior innings from Tommy Rodgers, only to see their lead evaporate against the Arapahoe Warriors after Rodgers left the game. The Chargers turned it around, however, and eked out a 6-5 win in eight innings on  March 26 at Arapahoe High School.

  • Roundup: Dakota Ridge baseball...

    GOODYEAR, Ariz. — A.J. Valerio pitched a complete-game three-hitter, striking out eight as Dakota Ridge continued its Spring Break play in Arizona with a 6-1 win over Desert Edge. 

    Two days earlier, Dakota Ridge scored a 12-0 win over Ketchikan (Alaska) High School.

    Shane Romero doubled twice and scored two runs and Nate Fishel hit a solo home run.

    Dakota Ridge led 2-1 before breaking the game open with two runs in the sixth inning and two more in the seventh.

  • Rebels’ depth proves to be key

    Depth is key in team swimming and the Columbine Rebels have depth.

    It was on display as the Rebels won their second dual meet of the season March 18 at the Ridge Recreation Center, beating Standley Lake, 146-136, despite taking first place in only three of the 12 varsity events.

    Columbine had seven second-place and six third-place finishes to gain a good deal of its points and take the win in what truly was a team effort, which is just what head coach Kristi Marosy wants.

  • Eagles learning as they go along

    LAKEWOOD — Elise Eppard was playing at No. 3 singles a year ago. This year, she’s at No. 1. Then there’s Becca Meyer, Dakota Ridge’s No. 2 singles player. She was a part of the Lady Eagles’ No. 4 doubles team in 2010.

  • Kincaid rules 3,200 at...

    This looks familiar.

    Though Dakota Ridge had the strength in numbers in the boys’ 3,200-meter run March 19 at the ThunderRidge Invitational at Sports Authority Stadium in Parker, Columbine had William Kincaid.

    Just like he did at October’s 5A state cross country championships, Kincaid chased down a first-place finish ahead of his Dakota Ridge counterparts, winning the two-mile race in 9 minutes, 48.46 seconds to set a meet record, breaking his previous mark set a year ago by more than 10 seconds.
