    LAKEWOOD — It might not have surpassed the special memories on the football field at Jeffco Stadium, but Dakota Ridge senior Cale Ferrin found the right way to end his prep sports career.

    Ferrin, who placed third in the high jump at the 5A Jeffco League Championships the previous week, finished fourth at the state meet May 19.

    DENVER — Having won nine-of-10 games entering the Class 5A baseball double-elimination state tournament, Dakota Ridge liked its chances for a long stay.

    Unfortunately for the Eagles, losses to Cherokee Trail (May 20 at All-City Field) and Mullen (May 21 at Machebeuf High School) brought the season to an abrupt end for Dakota Ridge (15-8 record).

    LAKEWOOD — It wasn’t a long drought, but returning to the Class 4A girls soccer playoffs was worth the wait for D’Evelyn, particularly the seniors.

    A 4-1 first-round victory over Niwot on May 11 at Lakewood Memorial Field made it that much more memorable and rewarding.

    LAKEWOOD — Fittingly to what has been a miserable spring season when it comes to weather, Columbine and Conifer girls lacrosse teams finished up the regular season in a cold and gloomy May 7 at Trailblazer Stadium.

    DENVER — D’Evelyn’s girls tennis program came up just short the last three seasons on grabbing a regional title.

    That trend changed May 6 at Colorado Academy in Denver. The Jaguars, Class 4A Jeffco League champions, edged the host Mustangs after falling short to Colorado Academy last season and Kent Denver the two previous seasons.

    LITTLETON — Seven straight victories in the Class 5A Jeffco League, along with winning the conference tournament, gave Dakota Ridge a legitimate argument to host one of the eight district tournaments Saturday, May 14.

  • Chargers net regional title

    LITTLETON — Chatfield senior Jenna Alvarez has handled her demotion better than most.

    “Honestly, playing No. 2 doubles is frustrating after playing No. 1 doubles last year,” Alvarez said during the Class 5A Region 8 girls tennis tournament May 5 at Ken Caryl Ranch House. “The girls at No. 1 doubles right now have been together so long it didn’t make sense to split them up. I love my partner and we are doing so well.”

  • Dakota Ridge girls sprint to...

    LAKEWOOD — Dakota Ridge’s girls 800-meter sprint medley relay team began the final day of the two-day Jeffco Elite Meet with a bang May 5 at Jeffco Stadium.

    The all-senior relay team of Genevieve Cruz, Carina Wilkerson, Olivia Landers and Cayli Hume broke the school record when it won the first event on the track Thursday afternoon. The time of 1 minute, 49.29 seconds easily outdistanced the Eagles from Lakewood and D’Evelyn at the finish line.
