    LAKEWOOD — Brittany Wilson usually takes Chatfield’s free kicks, but this one was a little farther up the field than normal for the Lady Chargers’ sophomore goalkeeper. With her team in need of a spark against a ball-controlling Columbine squad, the opportunity presented itself for Chatfield to strike, and the Lady Chargers made the most of it.

    DENVER — When they squared off early last season, Columbine was the veteran boys lacrosse team and Colorado Academy was young and with a new coach. When they met in a 2014 rematch of preseason top-10 teams at Colorado Academy on March 15 it was just the opposite, but no new coach for the Rebels.

    The news could have been worse for Dakota Ridge. The Eagles surrendered four unearned runs in the first inning of a 6-4 loss to visiting Grand Junction on March 14, then saw No. 1 pitcher Bryce Evans leave the season’s second game in the second with soreness in his throwing elbow.

    The initial phase of the Peaks to Plains Trail project is facing escalated costs, Tom Hoby, director of Jeffco Parks and Open Space, told the Jeffco Open Space Advisory Committee on April 3.

    The total cost of the trail connection from Golden to the Jefferson County line is now in the $75 million to $100 million range — more than three times the original estimate of $30 million to $35 million, Hoby said.
