  • Getting back to normal

      LAKEWOOD — It’s Thursday night and Taylor Hunt repetitiously swims back and forth in Lane 5 at the Carmody Recreation Center. That in itself isn’t all that surprising. The Columbine High School senior started swimming when she was 6.

    It also shouldn’t be too shocking considering the 17-year-old practices nine times a week, including three morning sessions from 5-6:30 a.m. for the Foothills Swim Club and will be adding two to three practices with Columbine High this winter.

  • Clear sledding: Sled hockey...

    Robynne Hill played competitive soccer until the age of 12, when she developed a nervous system disorder that causes intense pain in her legs. But four years later, she is thrilled to be part of another competitive sport: sled hockey. 

    Now 16, Hill catches a ride from Colorado Springs with her mom for practices and games at The Edge Ice Arena, where she has been playing with the Colorado Avalanche Sled Hockey Team for just over a year. 

     

  • Fall all-conference teams

    The following is a list of 5A Jeffco League all-conference selections for the fall sports season released by the conference:

  • Accardi concludes Mines career,...

    GOLDEN — Taylor Accardi was never a punter first. It’s just something he’s done since he was little. He did it off to the side. But for the past four years it’s what the 21-year-old did exclusively for the Colorado School of Mines, and he’s done it well.
    Real well.

  • Turnovers too much for Rebels

    ARVADA — The Columbine Rebels don’t have to look far to find out why their 5A state football championship reign came to an end Nov. 10 at the North Area Athletic Complex. Turnovers tell a lot.
    Unfortunately for Columbine, it couldn’t overcome those, miscues.

  • Underdog Chatfield shows it...

    DENVER — There was little question that the Chatfield Lady Chargers were the underdogs. Nobody was expecting anything from them as the No. 12 seed in the 12-team field at the 5A state volleyball championships.
    But while others may not have expected much from Chatfield, it certainly demanded something from itself.

    Underdog Eaglecrest upends Chatfield in first round of playoffs
    LAKEWOOD
    — Eaglecrest quarterback Adan Soto completed 11-of-16 passes for 232 yards and two touchdowns as the 22nd-seeded Raptors upset 11th-seeded Chatfield 29-7 in the first round of the 5A state football playoffs on Nov. 3 at Jeffco Stadium.
    Both of those TD passes went to Tre-shawn Wilford, who caught three passes for 115 yards, including a 74-yarder.
    Soto also rushed for a touchdown as did Ryan Willey.

  • Chargers’ Barber, Hagen give it...

    THORNTON — It starts with a pirouette, then a jump, then a tumble. Her floor routine was a mix of lovely grace and power, but after two days of long competition Chatfield senior Emily Barber’s body was fatigued and shaky, and it showed in her landings.
    Competition in the 5A state gymnastics division is nothing if not fierce, especially with girls such as Claire Hammen from Loveland, who placed first in every single event last year bagging an impressive 39.225 points — the most in Colorado high school gymnastics history.

  • Ground game, turnovers pace...

    LAKEWOOD — There is no question that junior running back Bernard McDondle and senior quarterback Michael Burns make Columbine’s offense go behind a proficient offensive line. But it was Columbine’s defense that set the table for the Rebels in the first round of the 5A state playoffs on Nov. 2.
