  • Fortunate bounce carries Eagles...

    Sometimes, the best goal in a hockey game is not always the one that is remembered.

  • Conifer upsets Widefield

    The Conifer boys just might be on to something.

    A season after graduating an iconic group of talent, the "new" Lobos are on their way to establishing their own identity. Just keep that program handy as you learn their names.

    Behind the steady dribble penetration of sophomore guard Gus Womeldorph, the rebounding of Stephen Theiss and C.J. Danks, the hustle of Kalvin Winter and the all around play of the Tadlock brothers, the Lobos rolled Widefield 57-53 in a Class 4A nonleague game Dec. 19.

  • Rebels take third at invite

    Depending on whom you ask, the enthusiasm among Columbine’s wrestling team members can waiver.

    The team did take third place in its own Columbine Invitational, which they hosted on Dec. 13. But, some of the wrestlers’ youth does show through when they are questioned individually.

  • Effort is there; points still...

    The effort is most certainly there.

    In the absence of 6-foot-8 senior center Connor Osborne, Columbine’s boys basketball team has compensated for the loss of their stud player by playing ultra-aggressive defense, hustling to loose balls and running an efficient offense.

    Only one element is missing – and it’s a big one.

  • Falcons fly to first-ever state...

    In the beginning, the smile didn’t come easy.

    Abbie Daurio is by no means an evil girl; quite the contrary, she’s very polite and nice when you talk to her.

    But, when she decided to take up cheerleading three years ago, it was the smile that always seemed to trip her up.

    “I was focusing so much on getting the routines down that I would always have a hard time with it,” Daurio said.

    The smile comes much easier now for Daurio, and, most likely, for the rest of the Front Range Christian School cheer team.

  • Rebels fall to Falcons

    The effort is most certainly there.

  • Chargers topple Rebels

    Jeffrey Harris had one person to thank for his hat trick Dec. 3 against rival Columbine.

    "My dad," the Chatfield junior said with a hint of a grin.

    Harris got crossways with his father, who implemented a one-period suspension for his son. When Harris made bail he needed a little more than six minutes to score his first goal and spark Chatfield to a 6-2 season-opening victory over the Rebels before a standing-room-only crowd at The Edge Ice Arena.

  • Chatfield runs past Chaparral

    Try on this logic for size: The Chatfield Chargers whipped the Chaparral Wolverines on Dec. 4, just two days after the Wolverines took the two-time Class 5A defending champion East Angels into overtime.

    So that must mean the Chargers are way better than the top-ranked Angels, right?

    Welcome to prep hoops in early December.

  • Bruins boot Rebels from playoffs

    GREENWOOD VILLAGE — Fans on both sides of the stands knew that if the Class 5A state football semifinal between Cherry Creek and Columbine came down to a field goal, the Bruins would have no problems racking up three points between the uprights.

    Unfortunately for Columbine, that’s exactly what the Nov. 22 game came down to.

    RC Willenbrock scored the game-winner with just two seconds remaining on the clock to give Cherry Creek the 27-25 victory at the Stutler Bowl. The Bruins will play Mullen in the state championship Nov. 29 at Invesco Field.

  • Upset bid comes up short

    LAKEWOOD — The Rodney Dangerfield of the Class 4A state football playoffs finally got its respect.

    Unfortunately for Dakota Ridge, a win didn’t accompany it.

    The No. 14 Eagles gave the No. 2 Farmers of Wheat Ridge all they could handle Nov. 22 at Jefferson County Stadium, but ultimately fell short 21-16 in a hard-fought game.
