  • Girls basketball: ‘No regrets’...

    By Will Petersen
    For the Courier
    The music blares through the speakers and about 15 girls, all perfectly in rhythm, are staying on beat. This certainly isn’t a dance practice though. The basketballs bouncing off the floor, all at the same time, are a good reminder where you are.

  • Boys basketball: Snow will be...

    Jon Snow won’t have to look too hard to recognize that the 2012-13 Columbine Rebels’ boys basketball team has a different makeup than the past two seasons.
    In head coach Clay Thielking’s first couple of years at the helm he’s only led Columbine to a 36-15 record, including a 21-5 season a year ago which included a 5A Jeffco League title and a berth in the Great Eight. That’s quite the change from the four previous losing seasons from 2006-2010.

  • Chatfield’s Mann headed to D-II...

    Brenden Mann, a three-year starter for Chatfield Senior High, signed his letter-of-intent to play men’s basketball for the University of Mary, a Division II program in Bismarck, N.D., the school announced Nov. 14.
    Mann, a 6-foot-2 shooting guard, averaged 15.7 points and 3.0 rebounds for Chatfield during the 2011-12 season. The Chargers went 14-11 and reached the second round of the 5A state tournament. The Chargers finished 11-5 in the 5A Jeffco League last season, placing third.

  • Rebels’ lacrosse talent jumping...

  • 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.

  • 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.
