  • Charging to state

    LITTLETON — ‘No player left behind’ could have been the motto for Chatfield’s boys tennis team last week.

    The back-to-back Class 5A Jeffco League champions qualified all three single positions (No. 1 Christian Holmes, No. 2 Patrick Ross and No. 3 Zac Meyer) along with all four doubles teams (No. 1 Sam Meyer/Austin Stutz, No. 2 Brent Cumming/Elliot Takaki, No. 3 Justin Spehalski/TJ Hall and No. 4 Alex Gates/Josh Baker) to the Class 5A state tournament that begins at 9 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 15, at Gates Tennis Center in Denver.

  • Chatfield in thick of league...

    LAKEWOOD — Chatfield’s boys soccer team thrived on first-half deficits last week at Lakewood Memorial Field.

    The Chargers (5-6, 3-1 in Class 5A Jeffco League) rallied against Pomona on Oct. 5 and repeated the same feat three nights later against Lakewood to net key conference victories to stay in the hunt for a league championship.

  • Silliman clutch for Eagles

    LAKEWOOD — Dakota Ridge junior Harper Silliman went from goat to hero in a hurry Oct. 9 at Jeffco Stadium.

    The Eagles’ backup place kicker missed a pair of first-quarter extra points and a 36-yard field goal in the fourth quarter in the Class 4A Plains League opener for Dakota Ridge. Silliman redeemed himself, kicking a game-winning 44-yard field goal as time expired to give Dakota Ridge a 30-27 victory against Ponderosa.

  • Tait finishes tied for 16th at...

    Columbine junior Marcus Tait had a top-20 finish at the Class 5A boys golf state tournament Oct. 6 in Fort Collins.

    Tait fired rounds of 74 and 75 at Fort Collins Country Club during the two-day tournament to place tied for 16th. It was his third appearance in the state tournament. Tait placed 64th as a freshman and 43rd as a sophomore.

  • D'Evelyn belts Evergreen on...

    DENVER — Giving up a deep home run over the left field fence to Evergreen junior Jessica Bellatti got D’Evelyn senior pitcher Allison Frantz fired up Oct. 4.

    Bellatti crushed a solo home run to start the top of the fourth inning on a cool Saturday morning on the Jaguars’ home field. The home run trimmed D’Evelyn’s lead to 4-1, but Frantz turned the mistake into a positive as the Jaguars went on to take a 10-1 victory.

  • Front Range Christian shut out...

    By Craig Harper -- For the Times

    BAILEY — For years, Platte Canyon has run roughshod over opponents from its double-wing formation featuring two backs lined up behind tight ends and a fullback about two yards behind a quarterback under center.

    Packed in like sardines, the Huskies have made quick-hitting pitches and handoffs their trademark. The offense is rarely seen and, therefore, difficult to defend.

  • Rebels grind up Mullen

    DENVER — Columbine used some effective second-half jabs followed up by a pair of haymakers in a Class 5A Jeffco League heavyweight bout against Mullen on Oct. 2.

    The Rebels, ranked No. 2 in the CHSAANow.com 5A football poll, turned a 14-13 lead at halftime on the Mustangs’ home field into an eventual 35-13 conference victory to keep Columbine (5-0, 3-0) undefeated on the season. It all started with a 16-play, 80-yard drive to start the second half that chewed up nearly nine minutes of the third quarter.

  • Columbine gets scare from Dakota...

    LAKEWOOD — Dakota Ridge nearly put a huge blotch on Columbine’s hopes for a Class 5A Jeffco League title Oct. 2 at Lakewood Memorial Field.

    The Eagles entered the conference rivalry match Friday night at Lakewood Memorial Field winless on the season, along with scoring just four goals in their first 10 games. However, Dakota Ridge played best game of the season according to Eagles’ coach Ryan Miller.

    LAKEWOOD — It was good to be a junior tailback Sept. 25 at Jeffco Stadium.

    In a Class 5A Jeffco League football battle between Bear Creek and Chatfield, a pair of junior running backs put up some monster numbers on a night when the Chargers were celebrating their homecoming. The Bears, led by junior running back Andre Renteria, outlasted Chatfield (1-3, 0-2 in league) for a 35-21 victory.

  • Tait to take swing at state

    Craig Harper - For the Courier

    LITTLETON — Confidence won’t be lacking for Columbine’s Marcus Tait and Evergreen as they head to the Oct. 5 and 6 state golf championships.

     “I think I have a great chance of winning,” said Tait, the Rebels’ lone qualifier for the 5A tournament at Fort Collins Country Club.
