    WHEAT RIDGE —Haley Kopec must feel like she’s watching — make that starring in — the movie “Groundhog Day.’’
    Every time the Chatfield sophomore swims the 200-yard individual medley relay she finishes with virtually the same time, just shy of the 5A state-qualifying standard of 2 minutes, 20.5 seconds.

  • Meyer’s late goals rescues Rebels

    If you ask Columbine head coach Chris Gassman, he’ll tell you that Matthew Meyer is a player with the kind of attitude that you want for your team. He’s also somebody who might play just a little too hard at times, but he doesn’t quit. He didn’t Feb. 1 against Aspen at the Edge Ice Arena.
    The Columbine senior scored the game-tying goal with 3 minutes, 25 seconds left in regulation and then won the game with 5.5 seconds remaining in overtime as the Rebels scored a crucial 3-2 victory over the visiting Skiers.

  • Dakota Ridge can taste playoff...

    Jake Ross said that the pressure to get into the postseason isn’t occupying the Dakota Ridge Eagles’ minds, but you know that it’s there. They know that it’s there. They can almost taste it. And barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Eagles will make their playoff debut in 2014.

  • Breidenbach’s quick win ignites...

    LAKEWOOD — Karl Breidenbach is looking for a few good 5A wrestlers.
    Columbine’s senior 160-pounder is unbeaten and ranked No. 2 in the state’s top classification by On the Mat, though not perfect for the season, losing to Valley’s Brandon Gonzales (a defending 3A champion) and Pueblo County’s Keenan Willits (ranked No. 1 in 4A).

  • 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.
