  • Reed, Chargers down Eagles to...

    Chatfield senior guard Titus Reed might describe the Chargers’ win over the Dakota Ridge Eagles as “blessed.” Not only did the Chargers defeat the Eagles 84-63 at Dakota Ridge High School, but also because Reed was the Chargers’ leading — and most flashy — scorer.

    He dominated under the net and also nailed the only dunk of the game, racking up a 17 points, including a 3-pointer and 4-of-6 on free throws, for Chatfield (14-1 overall, 6-0 5A Jeffco).

  • Chargers trio makes quick work ...

    LAKEWOOD — Artem Rusakov, on the one hand, believes he’s doing pretty well this wrestling season. His record — 20-8 — proves as much. 

    On the other hand, he can see room for improvement. Moving down from 195 pounds to 182 has certainly helped his cause.

  • Eagles still finding their...

    When you’re the only senior on a team full of juniors, it may be expected that you take over the game during crunch time. That’s what Greg McNulty did.

  • Rebels swimmers start, finish...

    Abby Hart, by her own admission, isn’t quite as strong in the breaststroke as she is in the butterfly and freestyle. Even her backstroke is solid all things considered.

  • Jacober, young Rebels continue ...

    LAKEWOOD — Tony Jacober didn’t hide the fact that he was excited, maybe even a little bit scared. After all, this was the Columbine sophomore’s varsity debut on Jan. 12 at Lakewood High School.

    “I had to focus on just getting to work, beginning from practice to getting on the mat. Just completely focused on the match,” Jacober said. “I just want to work hard.”

  • Cougars thwart Jeffco foe Jaguars

    January is the girls swimming equivalent of baseball’s dog days of summer, a period between the season’s biggest meets — the mid-December Colorado Coaches Invitational and the league and state championships in February. It’s a time when swimmers and coaches are focused on intensive training before tapering for the latter than performance times in the string of dual meets that proceeds them.

  • Cougars get in a zone early vs....

    EVERGREEN — The fact that top-ranked Evergreen started out in a 2-3 zone against a D’Evelyn team built on its outside shooting was a peculiar decision. 

    It’s not what one would expect. But it worked like a charm for the Lady Cougars.

  • McNutly, Eagles upend Rebels

    If hearing voices in your head makes you crazy, then Dakota Ridge sophomore Greg McNulty is crazy like a fox.

    McNulty was instrumental in the Eagles’ 56-54 victory over Columbine on Jan. 5,  scoring 10 points on 10 free throw attempts and all in the fourth quarter. That helped the Eagles (2-8) hand previously unbeaten Columbine its first loss of the season.

    But, jokingly, McNulty attributed his cool under pressure mentality to “the guy living in my head.”

    LAKEWOOD — As Darth Vader said, “Impressive. Most impressive.”

    Chatfield’s boys basketball team made an emphatic statement in the Class 5A Jeffco League with a 90-58 road victory Jan. 7 against Lakewood. 

  • Lady Rebels escape Dakota Ridge...

    The Columbine Rebels’ girls’ basketball team narrowly defeated rival Dakota Ridge 60-57 with a scrappy overtime finish at home on Jan. 5.

    Despite being road-weary from a punishing schedule, the Lady Eagles (1-8) never allowed the Lady Rebels (6-2) to take more than a handful-of-points lead. In the second quarter, both teams hit a scoring slump — Columbine managing only six points to Dakota Ridge’s 10.
