  • Lions’ Gray soaks up vibe of All...

    LAKEWOOD — A freshman going into her sophomore year, Sarah Gray couldn’t have imagined that she would be playing in the Colorado High School Soccer Coaches Association All-State Game. But there she was July 8 at Lakewood Memorial Field.

  • CSH’s Overholt sparks North’s...

    LAKEWOOD — Ben Overholt didn’t have the opportunity in 2014 — not playing defense — to make much of an offensive impact in the Colorado High School Soccer Coaches Association All-State game. Back for a second straight year on July 8 at Lakewood Memorial Field, he was determined to make it count.
    And he did.

    Columbine, a football program notorious for running the football, reached the championship game in a pair of 7-on-7 passing tournaments it entered this summer.

    Legion B baseball is all about building for the next high school season. It’s also all about mixing and matching.

    One day short of the 10th anniversary of the U.S. Navy SEAL Team 10’s ill-fated Operation Red Wings mission in Afghanistan in which former Littleton resident Danny Dietz lost his life, members of the Chatfield football team displayed an act that exemplified doctrines embraced by the SEALs and the Danny Dietz Leadership and Training Foundation.

  • ‘They’ve been having a blast’

    Gary Anderson fondly recalls when he was a kid in the 1960s and 1970s. He would get up and play all day long until it was time to come inside. Then he’d do it again the next day.

    There was no pressure, no coaches and no parents screaming instructions at you. It was all about how to play the game and having fun. It is with those memories in mind that the veteran Chatfield Senior High basketball coach and long-time physical education teacher developed the idea of the “Crazy for Sports” camp.

  • Effort to relocate prairie dogs...

    Work has begun to save part of the prairie dog population at the site of a future BMX bicycle track at the Schaefer Athletic Complex in South Jeffco.

    The Foothills Prairie Dog Task Force, a group of volunteers, was given the go-ahead by Colorado Parks and Wildlife to move 15 of the 45 prairie dogs that live on the site. The rodents will be relocated to 1.8 acres just south of where the track will be built at the complex.
