  • Defensive pressure turns game...

    DENVER — Anthony Shoeboot wouldn’t take credit for his play on defense. The Chatfield senior figures he was just one part of the equation. But his guarding of Mullen’s inbound play certainly played havoc on the Mustangs during their Dec. 8 game at Hutchison Field House.
    Chatfield’s full-court pressure defense ignited a half-closing 12-4 run, and the Chargers never trailed again in an 86-67 victory.

    If you were at the concession stand a little too long, you probably missed it.
    Chatfield scored four goals in the first five minutes of the second period to turn a 1-1 tie into a comfortable lead over Dakota Ridge on Dec. 9 at the Edge Ice Arena. The teams were even the rest of the way, but the damage was done as the Chargers came away with a 7-3 victory over the Eagles.

  • Harriman Lake Park to remain...

    Residents will have to wait a few months more before they can use Harriman Lake Park, which has been closed since November 2011 for a project to rebuild the dam. 

    The park, at South Kipling Parkway and West Quincy Avenue, includes a 1.4-mile trail around the lake. Foothills Park & Recreation District has leased much of the park from Denver Water since 1995. Foothills has also leased 11 acres southwest of the lake from Jefferson County Open Space for 15 years.

    EVERGREEN — You never want to call a race too early, especially if there’s a chance you could be wrong. But sometimes you know pretty quickly that it’s over. That was the case in the 200-yard freestyle relay Nov. 30 at the Wulf Recreation Center for the Evergreen girls ‘A’ team.

  • Strategic Lobos topple Littleton

    As far as the beginning of the season goes, neither the Littleton Lady Lions nor the Conifer Lady Lobos set off fireworks when they faced one another at Littleton High School on Nov. 30.
    Each was coming in after a season-opening loss. But, as in every game, there can only be one winner. This time it was the Lady Lobos who claimed victory 63-51.

  • Snow measures up in Rebels’ win

    Josh Perkins lived up to the hype. The Regis Jesuit junior, as evidence of the attention he has gained, which included scouts from the University of Colorado and Kansas University in attendance — one being CU head coach Tad Boyle — put on quite the show.
    With a red sleeve covering his left arm, the Raiders sharp-shooter was all flash in scoring a game-high 39 points. But Columbine’s Jon Snow matched him almost point for point, scoring a career-best 37 points.

  • Girls basketball: ‘No regrets’...

    The music blares through the speakers and about 15 girls, all perfectly in rhythm, are staying on beat. This certainly isn’t a dance practice though. The basketballs bouncing off the floor, all at the same time, are a good reminder where you are.
