LAKEWOOD — Dakota Ridge’s girls soccer playoff game against Smoky Hill felt like a horror movie – things got really interested just after you thought the antagonist was dead and buried.
GREENWOOD VILLAGE — This senior class from Columbine will always be remembered as one of the most-talented in school history.
Starting with a state baseball championship as sophomores to a football title and return trip to the state baseball tourney as juniors, the class achieved many things others only dream of.
Playing an early game and then coming back several hours later to play another sometimes works against a team.
Then again, Dakota Ridge knew how to use a break to its advantage.
The first shall be last.
Chatfield’s No. 1 singles ace Kelsey Brading was last on May 2 on a cold and windy day at the Ken-Caryl Ranch House. She was first, too.
DENVER — Chatfield came into the Class 5A district baseball tournament feeling just a twinge of disrespect.
Two games later, the Chargers left Mullen’s Bill Swift Field having proven their worth.
