  • Chargers are looking solid...

    LITTLETON — On the cusp of what could be a highly successful postseason for Chatfield volleyball, the Chargers finished their regular season on a high note after they defeated a talented Fort Collins team 3-1 at home on Oct. 25.

    Going into Wednesday’s match, the Lambkins boasted a 15-2 record, while the Chargers sat at 16-3 overall. That meant the match was poised to be a battle, and from the second through fourth games, it was.

  • Four area schools find success...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — D’Evelyn, Chatfield, Front Range Christian and Columbine all sent runners to represent their schools at the state cross country championships on Saturday at the Norris Penrose Center.

    D’Evelyn’s boys and girls teams both finished seventh, the only area school to send both teams to the meet.

    Chatfield’s Drew Johnson finished 20th overall at 16:19.20, and Cole Nash came in 18 seconds later at 35th. Sydney Williams placed 76th and Elizabeth Cothran placed 96th at 20:22.40.

  • Golddiggers erupt in 2nd half,...

    LITTLETON — Lucas Gerding would’ve played quarterback if he had to. After all, the junior is Clear Creek’s backup signal-caller. Fortunately, for the Golddiggers on Saturday, he wasn’t asked to until the outcome wasn’t in doubt. Instead, Gerding made his presence — as he has all year long — catching passes from Ty Judge.

  • Columbine ends season at 2nd...

    AURORA — Columbine senior Melanie Lopez experienced bookend trips to the quarterfinals at the 5A state softball tournament during her career. But the one that capped her senior season was more rewarding.

  • D’Evelyn cross country sending...

    ARVADA — All season long, the D’Evelyn cross country team has made the state competition its goal, and now that it’s qualified both the boys and girls teams for the end-all race in Colorado Springs this Saturday, it seems as though all the Jaguars’ hard work has paid dividends.

    That’s not to say their job is done yet, though.

  • Front Range Christian sending...

    LYONS — Front Range Christian School’s cross country team may be small this year — with only a handful of boys and no girls to represent it on the race course — but that didn’t stop the Falcons from qualifying two boys for the state competition this weekend.

    The sophomore tandem, Andre Stablein and Anthony Earl, qualified individually for state by placing in the top 15 runners at the Class 2A Region 1 cross country meet at Lyons High School on Thursday. Stablein finished at 18:02.00 at ninth overall, followed by Earl at 14th place (18:50.00).

  • MAKING A STATE-MENT: Chatfield...

    DENVER — Chatfield’s junior tennis star Christian Holmes surpassed expectations on Saturday, not only winning the 5A state tennis tournament at No. 1 singles, but also being the first player at a singles position to win state in Chatfield school history.

    It was also the first time a Jeffco player had won the title in the largest classification (5A) since 1996 and the fifth time ever since state tennis first began in 1927.
