  • Open Space master plan...

    The relationship between open space and public health gets an inordinate amount of attention in a second draft of the master plan for Jeffco Parks and Open Space, according to some members of the advisory committee.

    “I think there is an inordinate amount of text devoted to community health,” Jan Wilkins said while reviewing the second draft of the plan with other committee members last Thursday night.

    “There are so many aspects of open space,” Wilkins said. “There should be a more comprehensive description of what we do.”

    Creekmore, Goepfert lead charge as Dakota Ridge routs A-West
    ARVADA
    — Cassidy Creekmore and Miranda Goepfert each drove in three runs as Dakota Ridge rolled to a 12-1 road victory at Arvada West on Sept. 21.
    Creekmore went 3-for-4 and scored three runs, while Rachelle Foos also scored three times for the Lady Eagles (12-3, 3-1 5A Jeffco League).
    Foos pitched a complete game three-hitter. She walked three and struck out 10.

  • McDondle, Rebels thump Hawks

    By Craig Harper

    LAKEWOOD — The defense looks improved, first-year quarterback Michael Tait is making the right decisions and completing almost 70 percent of his passes, and Columbine is playing with a purpose, determined to prove that last year’s substandard 7-4 record was an anomaly. But the biggest thing the Rebels have going for them remains Bernard McDondle.

  • Chargers take care of things vs...

    It’s not likely that Sydney Lecker meant any disrespect with her comments. Chatfield’s lone senior, though, figures the Lady Chargers have, excuse the pun, bigger fish to fry than Columbine.

  • Tait, Columbine conquer 5A...

    When it came to Michael Tait and Greg Shelton, Columbine head coach Tim Capra knew they were going to be OK.
    His big concern was how his No. 3 and 4 players – Ashton Opperman and Marcus Tait – would handle the 5A Northern boys golf regionals at Broadlands Golf Course in Broomfield.
    Well, he was right about Michael Tait and Shelton. The elder Tait won the regional championship with an even-par 72, despite shooting 4-over on the Par-4, 423-yard No. 11.

    Sophomore pitcher Jessica Jarecki hurled a complete game one-hit shutout and added a double in the sixth inning to lead Chatfield to a convincing 5-0 victory over visiting Bear Creek on Sept. 21 at Chatfield Senior High School.

  • Turnovers help FRCS to upset of...

    In 1A football, especially for a team such as Front Range Christian where players see action on both sides of the ball, field position is huge. Defensive linemen are offensive linemen; safeties play quarterback. Players are on the field the entire time. So shortening the field is huge.
    Creating five turnovers and scoring 27 points off those miscues can swing the momentum as well. That’s what the home-standing Falcons did Sept. 14, scoring a conference-opening 34-7 win over 2012 1A Metro champions Platte Canyon.

  • Cobb adjusting just fine to...

    Danielle Cobb, like just about anybody else who has moved to Colorado, had to adjust to the altitude. After all, it’s a different atmosphere when you’re running a mile above sea level. But the Columbine senior has handled the adjustment quite nicely. She proved that Sept. 13 at the annual Liberty Bell cross-country meet.

  • Chatfield’s offense always on...

    LAKEWOOD — If you go to a Chatfield Chargers football game in 2013, there are a couple things you need to know. One, they’re going to run a lot of plays. And, two, they’re going to run them fast.
    It’s not quite the Denver Broncos, the Philadelphia Eagles or the rage of the NFL, but the Chargers’ no-huddle spread offense, reminiscent of that run by 2011 NAIA national champion St. Xavier (Ill.), is go, go, go all the time.
