LAKEWOOD — Columbine’s girls lacrosse team found itself on the wrong side of a dramatic second-half rally April 7 at Trailblazer Stadium.
The Rebels seemed to have everything in hand when sophomore Maeve Hungerford scored with 13 minutes, 26 seconds left in the second half to give Columbine a 9-5 lead on Jeffco League rival Ralston Valley. However, the Mustangs (4-1, 2-0 in Jeffco League) scored five unanswered goals in a span of just less than two minutes to take a 10-9 lead.

LAKEWOOD — Taking the field is something Columbine’s boys lacrosse team won’t take for granted this season.
The Rebels were scheduled to play three games in California during spring break. However, Columbine’s flight that was scheduled to leave Denver International Airport on March 23 was canceled because of the blizzard that began early Wednesday morning.
LAKEWOOD — The positive steps Dakota Ridge’s boys lacrosse team took during its spring break trip to California got plowed away like the snow from a Colorado blizzard.
The Eagles (1-5 record, 0-1 in league) picked up their first win of the season during the three-game trip to the west coast and played in another pair of close games. However, the momentum didn’t carry over in Dakota Ridge’s Front Range League opener against Boulder (2-3, 1-0) on April 1 at Trailblazer Stadium in Lakewood.
