  • 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.

  • A-West runs away with tri-meet...

    ARVADA — Juggling academics and athletics is a challenge for any high school athlete, especially early in the school year. The Chatfield Chargers’ gymnastics team knows that.
    Their tri-meet Sept. 5 at Arvada West High School, which included 4A Evergreen, was pretty much a one-sided affair, as the host Lady Wildcats were dominant in all four events. Arvada West had the top two scorers in every event, including the top five in the balance beam, to score 178.55 points. Chatfield was second with 162.025, and Evergreen was third at 148.575.

  • Chargers score at will vs. Angels

    DENVER — Hurry-up offenses are all the vogue in football, but Chatfield seemingly gets plays off at warp speed. And in Week 2, the Chargers scored in the wink of an eye, too.
    “It’s going really fast,’’ said senior receiver Jahrel Olson, one of the big benefactors of Chatfield’s move to a no-huddle, quick-snap offense with an increased emphasis on the forward pass. “We practice it so many times it’s becoming second nature.’’

  • Starr rises for Dakota Ridge

    LAKEWOOD — Austin Starr walked up to Bear Creek goalkeeper Derrick Kipp prior to Dakota Ridge’s game with the Bears and declared that he was going to score on him. It was all in fun, as Starr and Kipp have been club teammates on the U-17 Colorado United White for the past two years. But not even Starr could envision how true his statement was about to become.
