  • Eagles overcome halftime deficit...

    All the Eagles needed was some heat to get them to play their game.

    The Chargers gave them what they wanted.

    Chatfield took a 27-26 lead at halftime in the Jan. 18 girls basketball game against Dakota Ridge, but that’s just what the Eagles were looking for to find their inspiration.

  • Charger boys cruise to victory...

    After getting kicked around at times during a brutal nonleague schedule, the Chatfield Chargers finally got to return the favor.

    The fact that it was the start of Class 5A Jefferson County League play made it sweet.

  • Kuhr appears on track to defend...

    ARVADA — Emily Kuhr kind of wishes she was like everyone else.

    You know, the people that can go to a swimming pool just to cool off, get wet, check out the scenery and jump and frolic with brainless abandon.

    The Chatfield Chargers are walking the line.

    CENTENNIAL — After picking up two early fouls, Dakota Ridge’s Jennelle Branting was relegated to the role of spectator as the rest of her Eagle teammates battled with Arapahoe last Wednesday.

  • Rebels can't hold on to...

    If only the Columbine girls basketball team could have sweet dreams, then maybe they could rebound from some recent losses and improve to a winning record in 2008.

    The Rebels took a 54-48 home loss to Heritage in a Class 5A nonleague game Friday night, falling to 3-5 on the season.

  • Eagles' fast start doesn...

    AURORA — If the Regis Raiders really are the best girls basketball team in the state, Dakota Ridge can take pride in beating them for 12 minutes, 47 seconds on Saturday.

    The other 19 minutes, 13 seconds? Not so much.
