  • 2011-12 Athlete of the Year:...

    Very little, if at all, did Cameron McDondle practice the final three weeks of the 2011 season. The Columbine Rebels running back couldn’t.
    Torn ligaments in his right ankle suffered in a second-round playoff game with Fairview severly hampered him. But it didn’t stop him. Far from it. Practice or no practice he was going to be there come game day.
    “I figured once I get on the field and the adrenaline is going I don’t care what injuries I have as long as I can run and perform at my best,” McDondle said.

    Dakota Ridge graduate and right-handed pitcher Steven Wilson was drafted with the last pick of the 35th round — the 1,088th pick overall — by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2012 amateur draft June 6.

    The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder went 7-1 with a 2.66 earned-run average for the Eagles this past season. He struck out 70, while walking just 15. The 17-year-old signed a letter-of-intent earlier this year to play Division I baseball at the University of Santa Clara (Calif.).

  • 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.
