    LAKEWOOD — Abbey Selin had to double-check the calendar when she became ill during the holiday break.

    “I get sick twice a year, and it always happens right before state. It’s terrible,’’ the D’Evelyn senior said prior to the 4A Jeffco Relays on Jan. 13 at Carmody Recreation Center.

    The 3A state meet, where Selin will defend her championship in the 500-yard freestyle (her first state title) and try to move up a spot to first in the 200 freestyle, isn’t until Feb. 8-10.

    There are plenty of athletes who dominate in their respective sport. It is athletes like Chatfield volleyball’s Julia Eiken whose commitment to excellence in the classroom sets her apart from the rest.

    With a 4.8 weighted grade-point average, the Colorado School of Mines commit knows it can be tough at times to balance both the classroom and athletics. Despite this, Eiken’s unwavering commitment to both has helped her learn one of life’s most important qualities.

    In a back-and-forth dual, the Bear Creek Bears wrestling team edged out its league rival, the Chatfield Chargers, 42-40 on Tuesday, Jan. 9.

    Despite their inexperience as a whole, the Chargers had a relatively good showing.

    “We have a pretty young team. We have two seniors on the squad out of the 14 slots, and I think for how young we are we’re doing really good. We’re progressing really fast and a lot of our kids are growing up,” said E.C. Manzanares, one of two seniors and a state qualifier last season.

    It seems as though Dakota Ridge senior Skylar Lodice can do it all.

    Whether she’s on the court, on the track, on the course or serving as the student body president, she’s constantly working to better not only herself but the community.

    For the past four years, Lodice has represented the Eagles through cross country, basketball and track on the athletic side of the spectrum. Because each sport is a different season, she’s been able to balance her year.

    EVERGREEN — The Evergreen boys’ basketball team knows how to start off league play right.

    Following a win against Standley Lake and a 61-55 victory over visiting D’Evelyn on Saturday afternoon, the Cougars now sit at 2-0 in league play (9-2 overall) and show no signs of slowing down. The Jaguars, however, have struggled in Jeffco play with two tough losses to start out the new year (4-6).

    LITTLETON — A post-holiday slump despite going 2-0 in the first week of January?

    That’s what Dakota Ridge senior forward Jonathan Tanji thought might be the case after his third-period goal lifted the Eagles hockey team to a hard-fought 2-1 non-conference victory over rival Columbine.

    Despite strong ball movement and a plethora of strikes at the basket, the shots simply weren’t falling for the Front Range Christian girls basketball team on Dec. 20 against the SkyView Academy Hawks. The Falcons ultimately came up short against the Hawks, 40-15.

    Falcons head coach Dave Hiltman feels the wins will come with time, as his young team is still finding its identity as the season progresses.
