  • Kuhr’s win paces Columbine

    ARVADA — Even with several feet of snow altering the schedule of the 5A Jeffco League swimming championships Columbine did not disappoint.
    Finishing behind powerhouse Ralston Valley and a tough Lakewood squad, the Lady Rebels edged out Chatfield for third place by a mere two points on Feb. 4 at the George J. Meyers pool. This came after wintry weather forced the prelims from Feb. 3 to the morning of the finals.
    “I’m a little speechless,” Rebels coach Kristi Marosy. “I think they did a great job.”

    Lady Eagles ride Cryder, Wood to victory over Standley Lake

  • Chargers turning the corner as...

    It hasn’t always been the case this season, but Chatfield head coach Mark Glombecki believes his Chargers are playing the kind of hockey that they played last year. The kind that put Chatfield in the state semifinals.
    It would be a hard fact to argue after the Chargers won a season-best third straight game Jan. 28 at the Edge Ice Arena with a 3-0 victory over Aspen.

  • Two wins, forfeits just enough...

    Shawn Damhoff could tell that his Columbine opponent Justin Hinkley has gotten better since their previous meeting three weeks earlier. Yet that didn’t matter to the Chatfield junior in their head-to-head meeting on Jan. 26.
    All Damhoff had in mind was scoring six much-needed team points for host Chatfield in its dual with the Rebels, and he did.
    Damhoff’s pinfall in 1 minute, 19 seconds was the first of only two head-to-head wins for the Chargers, but coupled with five forfeit victories Chatfield was able to rally for a 41-36 victory over Columbine.

  • Rebels don’t fall into Eagles’...

    The similarities were there, according to Columbine head coach Clay Thielking.
    The last time his Rebels’ boys basketball team played Dakota Ridge the Eagles found a way to utilize their full-court trapping defense effectively enough to send Columbine to its first and to date only 5A Jeffco League defeat. On Jan. 28, Dakota Ridge tried to do that again, but Columbine wasn’t having any of that.

  • Forfeits, two wins gives...

    Shawn Damhoff and Calvin Cox scored Chatfield's lone head-to-head victories, but combined with five forfeit victories it was enough for the host Chargers to pin a 41-36 loss on Columbine in their dual wrestling match Jan. 26 at Chatfield Senior High School.
    Damhoff scored a pinfall win over the Rebels' Justin Hinkley in 1 minute, 19 seconds in their 113-pound bout and Cox scored an 18-2 major decision at 126 pounds over Josh Wyatt.
