  • Avalanche alumni, youth groups...

    When Ken Klee retired from the National Hockey League after the 2008-09 season, there was talk of forming a Colorado Avalanche Alumni Association, but it never really came to fruition. Still, hockey remained part of the 42-year-old’s life as a coach with the Foothills Hockey Association.

  • Rebels end slide against Chargers

    It took until the second quarter, but the Columbine Lady Rebels found Kate Gelston. The Chatfield Senior 3-point shooter was lighting it up from beyond the arc until Columbine went with a box-and-one defense to rein her in. Once the Lady Rebels did that, Chatfield’s offense was held in check, and Columbine’s offense came into its own.

  • Chargers rally, stave off Rebels

    Riley Welch has been dreaming about playing in a game like this since he was in seventh grade. Maybe it could’ve been a little less heart-thumping for the Chatfield sophomore, but the end result was still satisfying nevertheless.
    Welch came off the bench to score all of his team-high 13 points in the fourth quarter, and Chatfield held off two late-second chances from Columbine to escape with a 55-54 victory on Jan. 22 at Chatfield Senior High School.

    Chargers rolling along, top Gators for eighth straight win

    Alec Wray scored 19 points to lead five Chatfield players in double figures as the Chargers rolled past Standley Lake 74-54 on Jan. 14 at Chatfield Senior High School.

    Andrew St. Germain added 15 points, while Darius Reiter, Austin Rice and Riley Welch scored 10 each.

  • Frustrating loss to Monarch is a...

    Joey Owston stomped off to the locker room as the frustration started to set in. The Dakota Ridge Eagles goalkeeper, as head coach Alec Hines said, played out of his mind. Monarch pelted him with shot after shot, yet he stood between the pipes, making save after save.
    In all, Owston finished with 68 saves, but second-ranked Monarch pushed four of its five goals past the netminder to escape The Edge Ice Arena on Jan. 15 with a 5-3 win over eighth-ranked Dakota Ridge.

  • Falcons’ defensive pressure sets...

    DENVER — There’s not much glitz in the offense of the Front Range Christian boys basketball team. But if one wants to know why the Falcons are undefeated thus far during the 2013-14 season, just take a look at their defense.
    The full-court man-to-man pressure that Brad Folk’s team brings predicates the play of the offense. That was evident in its 58-45 win Jan. 15 at Denver Academy.

  • Energized Lady Eagles roll on

    It’s the energy the Dakota Ridge Lady Eagles play with, senior Jae Ferrin says, that’s made the 2013-14 season exciting thus far.

  • Open Space sets goals for...

    With help from volunteers, Apex Park may be partially open to hikers and bikers by this spring, according to a timeline established by the staff at Jeffco Open Space.

    The park in Golden has been closed since September, when flooding caused extensive trail damage. Other parks in the Jeffco Open Space system, which also were severely impacted, are slated for repairs in the coming months.

  • Open Space acquires Deer Creek...

    The 160-acre Deer Creek property south of Deer Creek Canyon Road is among land acquisitions finalized by Jeffco Open Space.

    Meanwhile, recommended grant recipients include the cities of Golden, Lakewood and Wheat Ridge, which collectively could receive the lion’s share of more than $800,000 from the Jeffco Open Space sales tax fund.

    Golden sought a $234,000 grant to construct the West 44th Avenue trail, which Jeffco Open Space Director Tom Hoby said needs to be done all at once, rather than in sections.
