  • Hats off to champ Kardas

    You got your Indiana Jones hat, the Panama Jack hat, your hats of leather, straw, silk and fur. And don’t forget the gambler hat, golf hat, cowboy hat, pith helmet and Napoleon’s iconic bicorn hat.

    Stas Kardas has grandma’s hat.

  • After strong start, Chargers...

    LAKEWOOD – Since dressing your child in bubble wrap, or forcing them live in a bubble until they reach 18 is generally frowned upon, one can rest assured they will get hurt.

    Bumps, bruises, pain, folly and anguish will always be just some of the medals of youth.

  • Eagles retire Caliga's...

    Dakota Ridge challenges students with the same goals — to live, to love, to learn and to leave a legacy.

    That’s what the Dakota Ridge wrestling team discovered this year.

  • Chatfield takes home Jeffco...

    ARVADA — Observing Kaitlynn Jackson prepare to swim is nearly as eventful as watching her cut through the water.

    The Columbine sprinter jams on her iPod during the consolation final while she prepares for her race. On her hand are numbers scrawled in pen and sometimes she points to water as she makes mental notes.

  • Dakota's defense shines in...

    From the outset, it was pretty clear what Columbine’s strategy was against girls basketball rival Dakota Ridge.

    Spread the floor and let sophomore point guard Demitra Apergis drive the lane.

    Janelle Baal would have none of it.

  • Chatfield makes statement with...

    Memo to Wheat Ridge: Don’t dis the Chargers.

    What exactly was said and who from Farmerland said it was not something Chatfield boys basketball coach Steve Schimpeler wanted to repeat Feb. 8.

  • Cunningham tops list of local...

    Last year, Ryan Miller was the guy with all the media attention as he finalized his college plans.
