  • Ali Abid comes up clutch for...

    No, Hamadi Ali Abid doesn’t have a fan club, but maybe he should. The small, but vociferous crowd at Littleton Public Schools Stadium certainly voiced their approval of the junior forward during and after Littleton’s 2-1 victory over Cherokee Trail on Aug. 28, especially after Ali Abid scored the game-winning goal eight minutes into sudden-death overtime.

    The speedy Ali Abid beat the defender before punching the game-winning goal into the lower right corner past Cherokee Trail goalkeeper Kamden Weis in the 88th minute.

    PARKER — Megan Sansburn knows all eyes will be focused squarely on her right arm for her junior softball season at Dakota Ridge.

    Final approval for a controversial plan to expand Chatfield Reservoir was granted last week on the same day that a lawsuit was filed to block the project.

    Chatfield coach Nicole Janssen and Brooks Roybal, her Columbine counterpart, bemoan their softball teams’ inconsistency this season. Fortunately for the Lady Chargers, that doesn’t necessarily apply to pitcher Jessica Jarecki.

  • Hike for Hospice planned Sunday

    More than 400 hikers are expected to trek to the summit of Olinger Mount Lindo in Morrison during the ninth annual Hike for Hospice on Sunday.
