  • Chargers wrap up Jeffco League...

    LAKEWOOD — The Chatfield Chargers have shown during the boys soccer regular season that they have plenty of talent.

    The Chargers have solid goalkeeping, a seamless defense, a midfield that can play the ball direct or wide to either wing, and plenty of forwards and attacking midfielders that can finish. So ee

  • Chargers steamroll Rebels

    Columbine held its Senior Night on Oct. 17, but it was Chatfield’s lone senior that stole the show.

    In a Class 5A Jefferson County League volleyball match that featured big hitters on both sides of the net, Alysa Heath emerged as the most dominant force.

  • Rebels fall to eventual state...

    AURORA — Run support figured to be Columbine’s biggest challenge at the state tournament.

    It was.

    The Rebels got the usual outstanding pitching from senior fireballer Kelsey O’Brien, but the bats were left in the cave.

    Seventh-seeded Columbine advanced to the Class 5A state quarterfinals with a nailbiting 1-0 victory over No. 10 Brighton, before being ousted Oct. 17 by eventual champions and No. 2 seed Legacy in a 4-0 defeat.

  • Homecoming a sweet one for Eagles

    LAKEWOOD — Teams are supposed to win their Homecoming games with relative ease in front of their alumni.

    The Dakota Ridge Eagles lived up to that assumption and then some, thrashing Golden 59-3 Oct. 17 at Jefferson County Stadium in a Class 4A West Metro League game.

    For the Eagles it was their fourth consecutive win, all in blowout fashion, outscoring their opponents 259-11 in that span.

  • Chatfield diver scaling new...

    To dive on the highest level in college, Chatfield’s John Fox must go where most would choose not to.

    Nah, he’s not joining the starship Enterprise or anything like that.

    But, he is scaling heights, up to the tune of 10 meters.

    It’s all in an effort to land a spot on a Division I swimming and diving team.

  • Swings of emotion

    Columbine volleyball players ran the gamut of emotions in a 48-hour stretch.

    First up were the non-desired emotions of anger and frustration after taking one on the chin in a four-game home loss to Lakewood on Sept. 30 that could potentially keep the Rebels from a three-peat as Class 5A Jefferson County League champions.

  • Falcons fall in five-game...

    Front Range Christian appeared to have things well in hand.

    Up two games to none in its Class 2A Mile High League home match against Alexander Dawson, the Falcons were certainly soaring. Alexander Dawson, though, found the reserve to rally and when the final whistle sounded, it was the Mustangs that emerged victorious with a dramatic five-game win 14-25, 22-25, 25-19, 25-18, 15-12 on Oct. 3 at Front Range Christian High School.

  • Chargers wary of moral victories

    LAKEWOOD — Despite what the 48-28 score might suggest, Chatfield gave Pomona all it could handle deep into the fourth quarter Oct. 2.

    Just don’t expect the Chargers to feel good about it.

  • Clean sweep for Eagles at Dave...

    Evan Appel wasn’t sure if he was going to run on Sept. 26 or not.

    The defending Class 5A cross-country state champion and senior at Dakota Ridge High School hadn’t been feeling all that great recently, and shutting things down for the afternoon would’ve been an easy thing to do.

    But, after taking part in the pre-race warmup, Appel decided to go ahead and go through with the race.

  • New faces guide Columbine past...

    ARVADA — Phillip Romero is one of those players that, because of his athleticism, needs to be out on the football field as much as possible.

    Good thing for Columbine that Romero has no qualms about playing multiple positions.
