    High expectations are a way of life for Dakota Ridge’s cross country teams, which have excelled for the past decade-plus under the head coaching of first Mike Callor and, since 2012, Mark Stenbeck, an assistant under Callor beginning in 2006.
    Stenbeck expects more of the same for 2015, especially from the girls team, whose top runner in 2014 missed qualifying for state as the Lady Eagles finished 16th.

  • Jeffco takes proactive stance,...

    High school football players in Jefferson County will practice a little safer in 2015 after the school district implemented a pilot program for student-athletes at all 17 high schools to wear Guardian Caps, a lightweight, soft-shell cover over their helmets to help to reduce head-on impacts.

  • Lions’ Pino an imposing presence

    The first time Littleton head coach Kurt Krantz saw Aron Pino on a football field, he immediately took notice of the 6-foot, 250-pounder’s elusive movement.
    “Great feet, great hips. He could run from sideline to sideline if he wanted to, and he does,” said Krantz, who starts his third season at the helm at Littleton High this fall. “He can take away half of the field.”

  • Columbine QB Lowry coming into...

    Jake Lowry can speak from experience. Being the starting quarterback for the Columbine Rebels when your uncle, Andy Lowry, is the head coach isn’t what one would necessarily expect it to be.

  • Nine West Metro firefighters...

    Nine firefighters from West Metro Fire Rescue are in California as part of a national effort to battle several massive wildfires in that state.

    The firefighters have been in California for about two weeks and are stationed at several major wildfires.

    It’s almost as if Santana Garcia has a fixation with water. From about the age of 8, he has envisioned attending the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., with the help of his special talent: swimming.
    The gift in the pool has been there for the Chatfield senior-to-be, along with a demanding course load. In the past two 5A boys swimming championships, Garcia placed in the top six in the 100-yard butterfly and twice finished ninth in the 50 freestyle, winning the ‘B’ heat.
