  • Eagles faced adversity all...

    DENVER — Dakota Ridge senior co-ed cheer captain Tyler Richey is the embodiment of cheerleading — enthusiastic, positive and full of spirit all mixed into a compact, athletic, bouncy frame. 

    She wears an enormous smile, almost as big as the bow perched atop her high ponytail, whenever she speaks, but as soon as her team left the floor at the Denver Coliseum on Dec. 5 it seemed as though Richey’s perkiness was merely a façade covering deep-seated worry.

  • Boys basketball: Turnover...

    Part of wearing a Chatfield boys basketball jersey is the expectation that comes with it. However, for the 2014-15 season, those expectations might have to be altered a bit considering the turnover the Chargers underwent this year.

    Chatfield graduated 10 seniors from last year’s 20-5 squad, which won its second straight 5A Jeffco League championship, and lost another key player, sophomore Riley Welch, who transferred out of state.

  • Girls basketball: Lady Eagles...

    Dakota Ridge head coach Rich Gavelda is back, as is junior point guard Caitlin Navratil. But the Lady Eagles must replace its top two scorers — Jae Ferrin and Lauren Wood — after a 19-win season, which included a trip to the 5A Great Eight.

  • Jeffco Open Space supports $1...

    The Jeffco Open Space Advisory Committee has recommended approval of a $1 million grant request from the Foothills Park and Recreation District for upgrades and improvements to 30-year-old Clement Park.

    “That park is a key part of Jefferson County,” board member Felicity Hannay said at the Jan. 8 OSAC meeting.

  • Dakota Ridge controls game’s flow

    In truth, it didn’t really matter whether the teams were at even strength or if Dakota Ridge was on the penalty kill because the host Eagles, on Jan. 8 at The Edge Ice Arena, were in control of visiting Pine Creek from start to finish.

    It took a while for sixth-ranked Dakota Ridge to get its feet underneath itself again after a nearly three-week layoff, but once it did, it showed who the better team was in a 4-0 blanking of the other Eagles.
