  • Rebels share load in rout of...

    LAKEWOOD — Things have been going well lately for the Columbine Lady Rebels’ girls lacrosse team. In a 20-2 win over Wheat Ridge on April 12, 14 players scored goals and going into their game with Evergreen on April 14 at Trailblazer Stadium, they sought to better that mark.

    And when Molly Secora scored late in the second half of the Lady Rebels’ 21-3 blowout of the Lady Cougars, she became the 15th Rebel to tally a goal.

  • Chatfield escapes scare from...

    LAKEWOOD — For the Chatfield Lady Chargers, the score just may have been a little too close for comfort. Then again, they were playing rival Dakota Ridge and rivalry games do that.

    Nevertheless, Rachel Walker made sure the Lady Chargers didn’t suffer a letdown. But just barely. Her fourth goal of the game, on a 1-on-1 challenge of Dakota Ridge keeper Rebecca Smith, with 6.4 seconds remaining allowed Chatfield to escape Trailblazer Stadium with a 12-11 victory on April 16.

  • Baseball roundup: Rodgers’...

    Tommy Rodgers threw a complete-game two-hitter as host Chatfield stunned Abraham Lincoln, 100-0, on April 15.

    Jordan Crites and Rand Good each had two hits for Chatfield (6-4). The Chargers broke open the game with six runs in the third inning and scored four more in the fifth to end the game on the mercy rule.

  • Roup focused on 2nd-place finish...

    LAKEWOOD — Austin Roup didn’t waste much time. He didn’t have much to waste anyway. It was prom night after all. 

    But the Dakota Ridge discus thrower wasn’t thinking about that until after he left Jefferson County Stadium on April 9 near the end of the 14th annual Mullen Runners Roost Invitational. Instead, he was just focused on placing as high as he could. For him, on this day, it was second place with a toss of 159 feet, 3.5 inches. 

  • Speed, defense propels Rebels

    LAKEWOOD — Speed kills, and the Columbine Lady Rebels have speed.

    Never was that more evident than on April 7 at Trailblazer Stadium when the Columbine girls lacrosse team used its speed to trounce the Golden Lady Demons, 16-6.

    Junior Paige Amme and senior Lauren Snow used their blazing speed to gut Golden’s defense, scoring five and four goals, respectively.

  • Chargers rally, tie state 4A...

    It should be no surprise that the Chatfield Lady Chargers came out a little flat against Wheat Ridge. After all they were playing their third game in four days.

    But Lady Chargers regrouped after allowing an early goal and evened the game to finish with a 1-1 tie against the Lady Farmers on April 8 at Chatfield High School.

    Wheat Ridge scored in just the fourth minute off of a corner kick as Brooke Livingston got a shot past Chatfield goalie Sarah Schnetzler.

  • Roundup: Robbins, Eagles shock...

    AURORA — Cooper Robbins drove in four runs and Dakota Ridge scored seven runs in the third inning before holding off host Cherokee Trail, 11-8, on April 7.

    Robins, Ryan Latham, Ben Nutsch, Preston Fugita and Keaton Greenstreet each had two hits for Dakota Ridge (4-5). A.J. Valerio struck out seven over six innings for the win.

  • She’s got Games

    Yes, Brigitta Games finds the time to eat and sleep. It’s true. It just might not seem like it when you see how busy she is.

    The Chatfield sophomore was a viable member of the girls swim team in the winter, participating in the 100-meter butterfly and 100 breaststroke, and is now throwing the shot put and discus for the Chargers’ track and field team this spring. Not to mention she played with the school’s marching band in the fall. Then there’s this water polo thing. It’s here where she is truly turning heads.

  • 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.
