  • Can't spoil her party

    Let the Dakota Ridge Eagles girls basketball team eat cake. They certainly deserved it Mar. 1.

    After getting roughed up on the boards by George Washington and in danger of getting roughed up all over, the Eagles leaned heavily on their age an experience.

  • Chatfield gives up lead, falls...

    With a first-round Class 5A playoff victory in reach, with separation finally achieved late in the fourth quarter of an exciting slugfest, the Chatfield Chargers blinked.

    And victory disappeared.

    Ahead by eight with 3:45 remaining, the Chargers gave up a 10-0 run to Montbello and bungled away their late attempts to tie or regain the lead in a 67-66 home defeat Feb. 27.

  • Sound the alarm, Chargers...

    In a game where both teams were mostly ice-cold from the floor, it's ironic that the fire alarm at Chatfield Senior High School went off moments after the Chargers’ 48-32 victory over Mountain Vista in the opening round of the Class 5A girls basketball state tournament.

  • Repeat offender

    DENVER — New year. New emotions.

    As the 2008 Class 5A state wrestling tournament began Feb. 21 at the Pepsi Center, Dakota Ridge senior Stas Kardas was hoping to improve upon 2007’s sixth-place finish.

  • Questionable seeding in girls...

    If any team has a bone to pick with the state basketball seeding committee of the Colorado High School Activities Association, it’s Dakota Ridge.

  • Eagles fall to Farmers

    It might not have been the best season on record, but for the Dakota Ridge boys basketball team, it was a great season regardless of its record..

    So while the team Eagles had an outsider’s chance of making the Class 5A state tournament entering the Feb. 22 regular season home finale against Wheat Ridge, the team still planned to play hard.

  • Hats off to champ Kardas

    You got your Indiana Jones hat, the Panama Jack hat, your hats of leather, straw, silk and fur. And don’t forget the gambler hat, golf hat, cowboy hat, pith helmet and Napoleon’s iconic bicorn hat.

    Stas Kardas has grandma’s hat.

  • After strong start, Chargers...

    LAKEWOOD – Since dressing your child in bubble wrap, or forcing them live in a bubble until they reach 18 is generally frowned upon, one can rest assured they will get hurt.

    Bumps, bruises, pain, folly and anguish will always be just some of the medals of youth.

  • Eagles retire Caliga's...

    Dakota Ridge challenges students with the same goals — to live, to love, to learn and to leave a legacy.

    For former Dakota Ridge student-athlete Rachel Caliga, now assistant women’s basketball coach and newly-appointed women’s golf coach, all those goals have been met or surpassed.

  • Columbine's rally comes up...

    LAKEWOOD – When Lakewood’s Erica Hicks hit a pair of free throws with 1 minute, 29 seconds remaining, Columbine’s girls basketball team appeared done.

    Not quite.
