  • Columbine to play for 5A state...

    LAKEWOOD — It was just two plays. Just 33 seconds. But Cameron and Bernard McDondle covered 174 yards on those back-to-back offensive plays for Columbine. That’s all it took for the Rebels.
    Just over two minutes apart, first Cameron McDondle for 86 yards and then younger brother Bernard for 88, for all intents and purposes, ran Columbine back into the 5A state football championship game on Nov. 26 at Jefferson County Stadium for the first time in five years.

  • Columbine chugging right along

    LAKEWOOD — The further one goes into the playoffs games aren’t supposed to be as lopsided as Columbine’s 35-14 win over Highlands Ranch was on Nov. 19 at Jeffco Stadium. Not even the final score does justice for the way the Rebels’ defense contained the visiting Falcons.
    “Our defense has played great all year to be honest with you. They bend a little, but never break. They keep teams out of the end zone,” Columbine head coach Andy Lowry said.

  • Good Knight for McDondle, Rebels

    BOULDER — Bernard McDondle was pretty excited. No, it wasn’t just because of the final score — though that would be understandable after the Columbine Rebels scored the game’s first 35 points on their way to a 41-14 5A state football second-round win over Fairview on Nov. 11 at Recht Field.
    No, what really tickled the sophomore running back’s fancy was that he finally got to beat older brother and workhorse running back Cameron McDondle for once.
