At least Nicole Janssen could find something to laugh about in the aftermath of Chatfield’s varsity softball game with Mountain Vista on Sept. 1. But, as for the game itself, it wasn’t much of a laughing matter.
LAKEWOOD — Certainly, Dakota Ridge didn’t want to start the 2010 varsity football season the way it did, giving up a game-opening 91-yard kickoff return for a score. But the way it finished the season opener was plenty satisfying.
Billy Van Heusen will tell you that he liked Denver so much that he never left. The former Denver Broncos split end and punter has made the Mile High region his home, even now some 33 years after his playing days ended.
There’s nothing flashy about the way Dakota Ridge attacks its opponents. The Lady Eagles use the small ball and their base-running skills to set up their power hitters. From there it’s a simple case of whether or not the defense can stop them.
