  • 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.

  • Horodyski shatters butterfly...

    ARVADA — Ashley Horodyski, in her own words, was struggling toward the end of her 100-yard butterfly final on Jan. 21 at the Jeffco Invite. Yet, by the looks of the end result you wouldn’t have known it.

  • Chatfield stops Rebels for Bame

    Kristi Vaninger led three Chatfield players in double figures with 15 points. Kristi Ohlschwager added 13 and
