  • Penalties, miscues hamper D’...

    ARVADA — Sometimes a winning team just needs needs to get knocked down. 

    That’s exactly what happened to D’Evelyn on Oct. 14 at Faith Christian. The Jaguars lost to the host Eagles 19-6. 

  • Holmes, Chargers capture...

    If his trip to the 2015 5A state tennis championships taught Christian Holmes anything, it’s that the now-sophomore at Chatfield Senior High can hang with the top players in the state of Colorado. He did, after all, get to the state quarterfinals.

    Now, he’s going back again, and he’s not alone.

  • Chatfield takes charge early,...

    Be it with a soft touch or an overpowering kill, Chatfield senior Sierra Bartley has the skill set to be an effective, yet dominant force on the front line. Columbine knows that all too well.

    Bartley is not the only force to be reckoned with fellow seniors Haley Fuller and Nicole Langford alongside junior Breanna Jones making noise on the front line. Add in the Lady Rebels’ defense with kills scattered throughout the floor in Chatfield’s 25-19, 25-15, 25-11 win Oct. 6 at Chatfield Senior High School.

  • QB Arne, Chargers dismantle...

    LAKEWOOD — The true character of a team can be tested by how it overcomes adversity. Ever since losing to Columbine 28-7 on Sept. 22, Chatfield has been on fire. 

    On Oct. 7 at Jefferson County Stadium, Chatfield defeated Golden 54-0 in its homecoming game.  In their two games following their loss to Columbine, the Chargers have outscored their opponents a combined score of 106-0. 

  • Platte Canyon runs roughshod...

    BAILEY — For years, Platte Canyon has been running roughshod over opposing defenses out of its unique Double Wing-T.  The trend continues in 2016, as Front Range Christian will attest after absorbing a 46-12 Foothills League loss. Platte Canyon rolled up 428 yards on the ground in the Oct. 8 contest.

  • Roxborough visitors travel back...

    Sunshine bounced off the rock formations at Roxborough Park on Saturday, illuminating bits of history for those celebrating the fifth annual International Archaeology Day at the state park.

    In combination with regular park visitors, a large crowd — too large for the available parking — filled the park, and cars wrapped around the entrance waiting to get in.

  • Mustangs’ hitting  denies  Eagles

    ARVADA — Caryle Levy didn’t mince her words. If anything, the Dakota Ridge pitcher shouldered the blame for an ineffective outing.

    “I had an off game pitching. That affected me,” the senior pitcher said.

  • Chargers down Rebels, win 5A...

    Chatfield boys tennis will be hosting regionals this week after an undefeated 5A Jeffco League season.

    The Chargers finished their 6-0 season stronger than ever last week. They defeated long-time rival Columbine on Sept. 27 at Marker Park and then beat Ralston Valley the next day, winning both matches 7-0.

  • Tait wraps up four-year run at...

    As Marcus Tait looks back on his senior season, the boys’ golfer from Columbine High School had some good rounds and some not-so-good ones. The finish wasn’t what he would have preferred, tying for 24th at the 5A state golf tournament at Bookcliff Country Club in Grand Junction, but, overall, it was a good year.

    Tait shot an 11-over 153 at state.

  • Dakota Ridge gets late turnover...

    LAKEWOOD -- Heartbreak has been the name of the game for Dakota Ridge (2-3) this season. Entering their homecoming game against Wheat Ridge (1-4) on Sept. 30 at Jefferson County Stadium, the Eagles had played in three games decided by seven points or less and had lost all three of them. It looked like the trend would continue until an improbable rally gave Dakota Ridge a 35-32 victory.

    Dakota Ridge recovered a fumble by Wheat Ridge with less than 2 minutes left and then scored with 18.3 seconds remaining to get the win.
