  • Chatfield’s big win has it on...

    One doesn’t have to ask Chatfield head coach Mark Glombecki twice. There was no question this was the Chargers’ biggest win of the season. And it couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time.
    With Aspen and Summit nipping out its heels for one of the final playoff spots in the Foothills Conference, Chatfield, behind two Tyler Seltenreich goals, scored a 7-1 victory over the visiting Sailors at the Edge Ice Arena.

  • National signing day

    The first Wednesday in February holds a lot of meaning for student-athletes. For many, it's the bridging of their lives from high school to college, from adolescence to adulthood. It is National Signing Day, the first day — besides a one-week period in November — in which they can sign their letter-of-intent to play athletics at the next level. The following is a list of area athletes who were celebrated on Feb. 1 for making a commitment toward their future:

    Musleh, Davis lead way as Dakota Ridge edges A-West

    Abdullah Musleh and Elijah Davis scored 16 points apiece as Dakota Ridge held off Arvada West 66-64 on Feb. 1.
    Chris Poste and Dakota Wallin added 10 points apiece for the Eagles (10-8, 8-4 5A Jeffco League).
    Arvada West (4-14, 2-9) was led by a game-high 18 points from Dylan Waters. Alex Satchell added 13 points, Thomas Neff scored 12 and Marcus Culhane 11.

  • Chargers get even, knock off...

    Conference rival Chatfield sent Dakota Ridge to its second straight three-point loss with a 33-30 home victory on Feb. 4. The Lady Eagles were also beaten on the road 44-41 at Arvada West two nights earlier.
    The Lady Chargers (9-11, 5-8 5A Jeffco League), who avenged a 54-53 loss at Dakota Ridge on Jan. 11, honored five seniors prior to the game. But it was the entire team that responded in the victory. Only senior Brittany Bame, out with a torn knee ligaments, wasn’t able to contribute on the court, but her presence was definitely felt by both teams.

  • Hoffschneider repeats at Jeffco...

    LAKEWOOD — Nick Hoffschneider won a second consecutive 5A Jeffco League tournament championship Feb. 4 at Bear Creek, scoring a 9-1 win over Pomona’s Ramon Yslas in the final round.
    The Columbine 182-pounder was the lone local champion crowned at this year’s tournament, which was relocated from Elizabeth High School due to heavy snow.

  • Kuhr’s win paces Columbine

    ARVADA — Even with several feet of snow altering the schedule of the 5A Jeffco League swimming championships Columbine did not disappoint.
    Finishing behind powerhouse Ralston Valley and a tough Lakewood squad, the Lady Rebels edged out Chatfield for third place by a mere two points on Feb. 4 at the George J. Meyers pool. This came after wintry weather forced the prelims from Feb. 3 to the morning of the finals.
    “I’m a little speechless,” Rebels coach Kristi Marosy. “I think they did a great job.”

    Kourtney Cryder scored a game-high 14 points and Lauren Wood added 12 as Dakota Ridge topped Standley Lake 48-32 on Jan. 27.

  • Chargers turning the corner as...

    It hasn’t always been the case this season, but Chatfield head coach Mark Glombecki believes his Chargers are playing the kind of hockey that they played last year. The kind that put Chatfield in the state semifinals.
    It would be a hard fact to argue after the Chargers won a season-best third straight game Jan. 28 at the Edge Ice Arena with a 3-0 victory over Aspen.

  • Two wins, forfeits just enough...

    Shawn Damhoff could tell that his Columbine opponent Justin Hinkley has gotten better since their previous meeting three weeks earlier. Yet that didn’t matter to the Chatfield junior in their head-to-head meeting on Jan. 26.
    All Damhoff had in mind was scoring six much-needed team points for host Chatfield in its dual with the Rebels, and he did.
    Damhoff’s pinfall in 1 minute, 19 seconds was the first of only two head-to-head wins for the Chargers, but coupled with five forfeit victories Chatfield was able to rally for a 41-36 victory over Columbine.
