  • Chatfield Poms prepare future...

    The squeals of delight could be heard down the hallways Feb. 1 at Chatfield Senior High School.

    Yet, entering Jan. 25’s game at Green Mountain, the Eagles said they knew they had to play with a sense of urgency against the Rams.

  • Wheels fall off Rebels

    The way Columbine acted in the third period against Mullen on Jan. 23, one might have thought Dee Snider delivered the pep talk.
