  • Sports briefs: Heritage...

    Tyler Boos, Sean McCarty and Cole Sweeney scored two goals each and Heritage blasted 39 shots en route to an 11-1 rout of Dakota Ridge on Jan. 7 at the South Suburban South Rink.

    Dakota Ridge’s lone goal came off the stick of Anthony Fonte with 2 minutes, 19 seconds left in regulation. Matt Scinski assisted on the tally.

  • Chatfield grad Robinson all over...

    To say it’s been a whirlwind year for Zac Robinson would be an understatement. The 24-year-old Chatfield High graduate and former standout quarterback at Oklahoma State has been all over the NFL map in his rookie season.

  • Dawg Nation persevering in...

    Martin Richardson considers himself a glass half-full kind of guy. But even the heartiest of person would have a hard time dealing with the heartbreak that has surrounded the Dawg Nation the past couple of years.

    “It’s been a crazy tough year for all of us,” said Richardson, the founder and president of the Dawg Nation. “But the silver lining is what we’ve done with it. Instead of moping we’ve started our own foundation. It’s a real silver lining.”

  • Year in review: Top 10 sports...

    2010 saw many things, from a first in cross country running to a program lacking numbers forced to take a break to a youth soccer team conquering the world. The following is a list of the Columbine Courier’s Top 10 sports stories for the past year:

  • Rebels win one for the coach

    LAKEWOOD — To say Columbine’s boys basketball game at Lakewood was just another game on the schedule would be a gross understatement.

    That’s because it marked the return of Rebels head coach Clay Thielking to his old stomping grounds as he brought his new team in to Lakewood High School to face the team he coached last year

  • Standley Lake pelts listless...

    Taylor Markowski couldn’t put his finger on one specific thing. The Dakota Ridge junior captain had no answers for the Eagles’ play in an 8-0 loss to Standley Lake on Dec. 17 at Edge Ice Arena in the team’s Foothills Conference opener.

    “I don’t really know. We just weren’t playing good position. We weren’t working the puck around well,” Markowski said. “… We weren’t having good chemistry. Our lines weren’t working well together.”

  • Horodyski leads way for Rebels...

    LOVELAND — What do you get when you invite almost 30 swim and dive teams from all over Colorado? You get an amazing showing of swimming and diving talent.

    The CHSSCA Girls CO Invite was held at Mountain View Aquatic Center on Dec. 18. The Invite showcased swimming and diving talent from both 5A and 4A schools.

    “I thought the competition was excellent today,” Chatfield’s head coach Ron Johns said. 

  • Eagles get defensive at right...

    WESTMINSTER — Danny DiFolco just wasn’t into a rhythm. His shot just wasn’t falling. But the Dakota Ridge senior can’t help himself. He had to have the ball in his hands at the end of the game. It was a good thing that he did.

    DiFolco scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half, including the Eagles’ final 11 points, as Dakota Ridge rallied for a 65-57 win at Standley Lake on Dec. 9. 

  • Chatfield captures Columbine...

    The Chatfield Chargers had been targeting the Columbine Wrestling Invitational for a year now. Ever since they finished third last year, they were determined that this was their year to win it.

    And win they did, taking first-place honors at the tournament with 173 points, two points ahead of second-place Arapahoe.

    “This is huge. We’ve been shooting for this all season,” Chatfield head coach Jeff Holland said. “We knew this was gonna be a breakout season for us and it was real nice coming out and taking this tournament.”

  • Rebels’ Kincaid runs to All-...

    There’s not much that Woody Kincaid hasn’t done this season. The Columbine senior won the prestigious Liberty Bell Invitational and the 5A state cross country championship, the first in school history. So why not add one more accolade.

    How about All-American?

    That’s what the Rebels runner pulled off Dec. 11 at the 2010 Foot Locker Cross Country Championship national finals in San Diego, Calif. Kincaid was named third-team All-America after running a time of 15 minutes, 27 seconds on the 5km course at Morley Field at Balboa Park.
