  • Lady Falcons tune up for playoffs

    The last remaining undefeated in Class 2A is … the Front Range Christian girls basketball team. 

    The Lady Falcons’ latest win, however, was not necessarily their most dramatic, beating an undermanned Nederland squad, 56-12, on Jan. 29 at Front Range Christian School. 

  • Chatfield’s depth the difference...

    It’s not like Hannah Kuhr wasn’t a good swimmer to start with. She was. But now the Columbine junior has added an extra element to her game — a faster start — that makes her that much better.

    It certainly didn’t hurt on Jan. 28 at the Ridge Recreation Center when she swam to dominating victories in the 50-yard freestyle and 100 butterfly against arch-rival Chatfield

  • Gators even score in rematch

    WESTMINSTER — When Standley Lake met Dakota Ridge on Dec. 17 at Dakota Ridge High School, the Lady Eagles dominated from the opening tip-off. The rematch on Jan. 28 at Standley lake High School was virtually the polar opposite. 

    The Lady Gators(12-4 overall, 8-2 5A Jeffco) jumped out to an early 8-0 lead and were never challenged in a 54-37 victory.

  • Roundup: Koop’s 17 points leads...

    Alex Koop led three Columbine players in double figures with 17 points as the Rebels rolled to a 76-50 win over Lakewood on Jan. 27 at Columbine High School.

    Nick Carpinello added 12 points and Jonathan Snow scored 10 for Columbine.

    The Rebels built a 23-9 lead after one quarter and 35-18 at halftime.

  • Chatfield’s second, fourth...

    Kyle Evans knew that Columbine would come back in the second half and give it its all. So did his Chatfield teammates. But the pesky Chargers weren’t going to be denied.

  • Chatfield girls in a zone after...

    Maybe it was Chatfield’s 2-3 zone defense. Maybe it was Columbine’s inability to attack the zone. Either way, the Lady Chargers, who didn’t exactly start the season running on all cylinders, have started to hit their stride.

    Chatfield overcame a slow start in the first quarter with a 10-0 run in the third quarter and held on for a 32-29 upset of arch-rival Columbine on Jan. 21 on a night that the Lady Rebels’ celebrated breast cancer awareness with a pink out at Columbine High School.

  • State qualifying first, foremost...

    With the girls swimming state championships coming up Feb. 11-12, both Dakota Ridge and Columbine have one goal — qualify as many girls as they can, as quickly as they can and gain as many team points as possible.

    In their meet against one another Jan. 21 at the Ridge Recreation Center, both teams came out strong in the first event, each qualifying their 200-yard medley relay team for the state championships.
