  • FRCS’ Roberts comfortable...

    DENVER — Jonathan Roberts likes playing at Wellshire Golf Club, and it showed Aug. 7 in the six-team 3A Mile High League tournament opener. The Front Range Christian junior carded a career-best 15-over-par 86 in the weather-delayed 2014 season debut.

    He shot a 45 on a grueling front nine before settling in for a 41 over the final nine holes to place eighth in a field of 24 golfers.

    “I was hoping to shoot right around what I got, so I’m pretty satisfied,” Roberts said.

  • BROTHERS IN ARMS

    The life of a minor league baseball player isn’t always glamorous. There is a lot of bus time, roadside motels and catering tables serving up lunch meat and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. After the game, dinner, in all likelihood, is leftover concession stand food, and then you do it all over again the next day.

    One’s apartment may have the bare essentials — an air mattress, suitcase, basic furniture and no air conditioning. But it’s the life that twin brothers Taylor and Tyler Rogers share, be it thousands of miles apart.

  • Rebels’ Tait turns full...

    It was springtime, yet Michael Tait was already looking ahead. Sure, the multi-sport Columbine High athlete was having a stellar baseball season, but his mind was pondering what was to come this fall. In particular, playing football and golf in the same season again.

  • Wages breaking down barriers

    The numbers don’t lie. Trevor Wages had an exemplary basketball career while at the Colorado School of Mines.

  • Putting the fun in fundamentals

    The 100-degree heat of summer didn’t deter 98 lacrosse campers — 80 kids ages 7 to 15 and 18 high school-aged players — from soaking in all the knowledge given to them at Cornerstone Park.

    From simple skill sets to pick and rolls, Colorado Mammoth players imparted their wealth of knowledge at the team’s second annual lacrosse camp July 21-22 in hopes of furthering the rapidly growing development of the sport in the Rocky Mountain region.

  • Dakota Ridge, Chatfield strut...

    For the Courier

    If summer baseball is a harbinger for the following spring’s high school season, the forecast is bright for Dakota Ridge and Chatfield in 2015.

    The Jeffco League rivals placed 1-2 at the AABC’s Connie Mack 17-and-under state tournament at Cherokee Trail, with Dakota Ridge going unbeaten and prevailing 6-3 in the July 20 championship game, its second win over Chatfield, which suffered no other losses.
