  • BY THE NUMBERS: A look at the...

    Sports are all about numbers — how many points were scored, the digits on a jersey, how much time is left in the game, how many yards to the hole, and so forth. The 2013-14 high school season had its fair share of numbers. The Columbine Courier takes a look back at the recently concluded campaign and the numbers that stood out during the season.

  • Rebels’ wait was well worth it

    COMMERCE CITY — For Columbine, it must have seemed like this moment was never going to come.

  • State title slips out of Tait’s...

    First, Jaylee Tait softly kicked her putter, knowing that she had let a potential par, if not a birdie, slip away on No. 17. Then, on No. 18 at Raccoon Creek Golf Course on May 18, she took a long sighing breath before pushing her second putt just past the hole. It was six putts on the final two holes — three each — and with them, the 5A girls golf state championship went by the wayside.

  • Columbine girls alter history,...

    COMMERCE CITY — Brian Todd knew he had a rock-solid team, a high-end squad capable of winning a 5A Jeffco League title. The Columbine girls soccer head coach also knew that if the Lady Rebels won their conference championship, it could set them up to win state.

  • Staunton turns 1

    For its one-year birthday celebration last weekend, Staunton State Park was transformed into a ranch from the early 1900s, about the time when Frances and Archibald Staunton called the place home.

    Visitors were treated to a rare look back at life during the Staunton Ranch days. Park volunteers performed demonstrations and gave presentations on building cabins, cooking on an open fire, and forging metal like a blacksmith.

    “People have enjoyed it and seemed to be having a good time,” said Ben Rideout, a Staunton volunteer.

  • Chargers sophomore Garcia takes...

    THORNTON — The Kentucky Derby might be the fastest two minutes in sports, but it has nothing on swimming. If you blink you’ll miss the 50-yard freestyle, which lasts for only about 20 seconds.
    During the boys’ 5A state swimming championships May 17 at Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center, Chatfield sophomore Santana Garcia swam a lightening 50 free with a time of 21.38, landing him in ninth place. Douglas County senior J.P. Beach took first with a time of 20.30. Just one second was the difference between first and ninth.

  • Regis Jesuit’s pitching depth...

    By Craig Harper
    For the Courier
    DENVER — Pitching depth often is a deciding factor in the first weekend of the 5A state baseball championship series, where it’s not uncommon to play three games in two days. Just ask Chatfield, which, in essence, sent a co-No. 1 starter against Mountain Vista’s ace in the second game for both teams and its closer making his first start against Regis Jesuit’s No. 2 in an elimination situation.
