    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.

    It was a celebration and a bit of a goodbye for Chatfield football standout Dalton Keene on Jan. 6.

    A couple of dozen students, coaches, faculty and family were on hand on the final day of winter break for students to give Keene a sendoff before he moves on. While National Letter of Intent Signing Day is Feb. 1, Keene will already be enrolled and taking classes at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va., by then.

    ARVADA — For the second year in a row, Chatfield’s wrestling team was blanked by Pomona in a Class 5A Jeffco League dual.

    Last year the Panthers defeated the Chargers 77-0 in a dual at Chatfield Senior High School. On a snowy night Jan. 4, Pomona froze out Chatfield again in taking a 62-0 victory at Pomona High School.

  • The Year in Review

    From Chatfield football moving down to 4A and reaching the state semifinals to the Lady Chargers’ volleyball team making another memorable run at the 5A state tourney and D’Evelyn runner Lexi Reed completing her prep career, South Jeffco had its fair share of sports moments in 2016. The following are 10 stories that highlighted the Columbine Courier sports scene during 2016.

  • Eagles find a way to win

    DENVER — Anyone who looks at Dakota Ridge’s hockey roster will notice that Trey Konsella is a defenseman. But, truthfully, he’s an offensive defenseman. His three goals already this season proves as much. None of those goals was bigger than the one he scored against Denver East on Dec. 23 at DU’s Joy Burns Arena.

  • Grinch-like Gators stuff Rebels...

    WESTMINSTER — Bah humbug.

    It probably felt like the Grinch stealing Christmas or a lump of coal was left in their stocking. What’s for certain is that the Columbine Rebels didn’t expect a 5-4 loss to lowly Standley Lake on Dec. 20 at the Ice Centre at the Promenade.

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — For the first five games of the 2016-17 girls basketball season, Columbine’s opponents faced a tall order, trying to stop Maura Singer, the Lady Rebels’ 6-foot-3 sophomore center.

    Curi Yutzy knew the 2016-17 boys basketball season would be one of growing pains for his almost completely-rebuilt Dakota Ridge squad with just one senior. But judging from the Eagles’ 69-58 loss to second-ranked Rock Canyon on Dec. 16, Dakota Ridge seems to be finding its legs.
