  • 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.

  • Chargers stay undefeated in...

    The Chatfield Chargers swim team is enjoying one of their finest seasons in recent memory.    

    The boys can now add another feat to this year of memories — going undefeated in dual meets.

    In their last dual meet of the year before leagues, the Chargers edged out Green Mountain 159-153 on April 29 at Ridge Recreation Center.

  • Little things become big loss to...

    Looking for a quiet place to relax this spring? Try the Chatfield dugout.

    The Chargers didn’t show much fire, conserved their voices while their teammates batted and were hammered late in the game April 20 for a 15-4 loss to Ralston Valley.

    The skill of the two teams was much closer than the score suggests. What was not close, however, was the spit and fire.

    “They played the game harder than we did on our home field, and I’m more disappointed in that than anything,” Chatfield coach Mike Yansak said.

  • Lexie deep sixes CSH

    LAKEWOOD — Fans have come to expect an interesting game whenever Dakota Ridge and Chatfield face each other in any sport.

    Their girls lacrosse game on April 22 at Trailblazer Stadium was no exception.

     The game was marred by a lightning delay of nearly 40 minutes before Dakota Ridge came away with an 18-11 victory.

    Dakota Ridge junior Lexie Chavez led all scorers with six goals and senior Ashley Behabets picked up three goals for the Eagles.

  • Rivals settle for OT draw

    LAKEWOOD — After 71 minutes and no goals, it looked like Chatfield and Dakota Ridge were headed toward a scoreless tie.

    Looks, however, can be deceiving. The next minute and a half saw two goals — one by each team.

    The rest of regulation and the two overtime periods would see a lot of action, but Dakota Ridge would miss on two great scoring chances in overtime and the game ended in a 1-1 tie.

  • Young Chargers feeling pretty...

    LAKEWOOD — The Chatfield girls lacrosse team is admittedly rebuilding this season.

    On April 13, the Chargers met an impressive wall in Centaurus goalie Kari Koga.

    “Early on, I think it was important for us to get a lot of shots,” Chatfield coach Adam Everett said. “We didn’t convert on the shots. That goalie is really good … We just didn’t convert down the stretch. We didn’t keep up the pressure that we should have.”

  • Roberts heats up; Rebels rally

    Matt Roberts was Frosty the Snowman with a blowtorch April 15.

    Somehow, it all worked out.

    “I do my part out there, stay frosty and help the team out,” the Columbine pitcher said after the Rebels defeated rival Chatfield 4-3.

    “I needed to stay down in the zone a little more,” he said. “The hits they got off me, I made mistakes, left the ball up a little bit. I kept it low more and kind of warmed up during the game and felt better.”

  • Rebels get back on track with...

    LAKEWOOD — The Columbine boys lacrosse team faced no shortage of challenges before and during its game with Conifer April 14 at Trailblazer Stadium.

    The Rebels were coming off a 10-3 loss to rival Chatfield and then lost freshman goaltender Evan Hartman to an undisclosed injury after a collision with a Conifer player early in the first quarter. Columbine was able to overcome all the adversity to defeat Conifer, 11-4.
