  • Columbine’s Haynes overjoyed...

    AURORA — Kaylie Haynes didn’t win the 5A girls state cross country championship on Oct. 29. She didn’t even finish in the Top 10 or 20. But not even that could erase the pure satisfaction that the smile she let out after the race was over.

  • Columbine blocks Mullen’s path

    LAKEWOOD — Ryan Earnest stands 6-foot-2, and the Columbine Rebels defender used every inch of his frame when his team needed him to the most.
    With the injury-riddled Rebels clinging to a three-point lead with 3 seconds remaining and Mullen’s John Scott lining up for a game-tying 40-yard field goal, Earnest found his way over the Mustangs’ offensive line and sealed, quite possibly, Columbine’s biggest win — a 24-21 victory — in the past five years.

  • Columbine tops Mullen

    A dramatic block of a last-second field goal propelled Columbine to a 24-21 win over Mullen on Friday night.
    Mullen's second-half comeback fell just short, keeping the Rebels undefeated on the season.

  • Columbine boys soccer team...

    FORT COLLINS -- Luke Shepstone scored Columbine's lone goal in the 75th minute, but the Rebels were bounced from the 5A state boys soccer playoffs with a 2-1 first-round loss to Fort Collins on Oct. 25 at French Field.
    The host Lambkins (8-2-6), seeded 13th in the 32-team field, got first-half goals from Jesus Martinez and Ben Walker before holding on to advance to advance into the second round to face fourth-seeded ThunderRidge (13-3).

  • State loss doesn’t spoil Dakota...

    AURORA — It might’ve been a bitter pill to swallow. It certainly wasn’t Dakota Ridge’s desired ending. But considering it had been eight years since the Lady Eagles had reached the 5A state softball tournament, even losing 4-2 to Brighton in the quarterfinals on Oct. 21 at Aurora Sports Park couldn’t diminish the season that was.

  • Cross country: Carney wins,...

  • Energized Rebels rally past...

    To say Ashley Williams was a little concerned would be an understatement. The Columbine senior did not want to lose, especially to rival Chatfield. Yet things didn’t look too promising for the Lady Rebels after the first game on Oct. 20 at Chafield High School.

  • McDondles, Rebels tune up for...

    LAKEWOOD — Despite being undefeated there were still questions about Columbine entering its game with Bear Creek on Oct. 20 at Jeffco Stadium.
    In its first seven games, Columbine had faced only one team with a winning record in Arapahoe. But the Rebels put most doubts aside with a convincing 38-20 win.
    Columbine overcame injuries to senior linebacker Jaxon Mohr (arm/shoulder), junior linebacker Trent Headley (arm/shoulder), and senior defensive lineman Josh Croy (elbow) in the first half.

  • Gut-wrenching end for Chatfield

    LOVELAND — Rebecka Mintz couldn’t control her tears. Carlie Sexton was physically distraught. What had been an improbable run through the 5A Jeffco League for the Chatfield Lady Chargers’ softball team came to a crashing halt on Oct. 15 at the Region 4 tournament.
    Chatfield, the region’s top and 5A’s fourth overall seed, went from a state-tournament favorite to an afterthought after an error-proned 4-3 loss to Cherokee Trail at Barnes Softball Complex at Fairgrounds Park.
