  • Chatfield ends long drought...

    By Dennis Pleuss

    LAKEWOOD — The streak is over in the biggest football rivalry in South Jeffco.

    Chatfield, ranked No. 3 in the CHSAANow.com Class 4A football poll, defeated rival Columbine for the first time since 2009. The Chargers took a 35-14 victory over the Rebels, No. 4 in 5A, on Sept. 22 at Jeffco Stadium.

  • Dakota Ridge’s offense still...

    By Dennis Pleuss

    LAKEWOOD — Pueblo West football made a productive and successful road trip to Jeffco Stadium on Friday, Sept. 22.

    It didn’t look like a masterpiece at times, but the Cyclones (4-0 record), ranked No. 7 in the latest CHSAANow.com Class 4A football poll, stayed undefeated on the season with a 31-7 victory.

  • D’Evelyn volleyball downs Middle...

     

    DENVER — All season long, D’Evelyn volleyball has been rolling. On Saturday, it won its own Varsity Challenge Tournament to stay perfect on the season, but not without facing its greatest test yet in Middle Park.

    Heading into their third match of the day, the Jaguars had only lost one game the entire season. But after Middle Park tied up the match at one game apiece after a long battle, they were in jeopardy of losing perfection.

  • Evergreen soccer defeats Conifer...

    By Craig Harper

    EVERGREEN — Saddled with a 1-5 record and a two-game losing streak, the last thing it seemed the Evergreen soccer team needed heading into the annual Mountain Cup against rival Conifer was the absence of head coach Ross Fowler on the sideline.

    But maybe having Fowler relegated to keeping statistics in the EHS press box was a shot in the arm for the Cougars, with Fowler on suspension for an undisclosed reason.

  • Jaguar, Falcon boys perform well...

     

    DENVER — At Denver North High School’s Viking Invitational at Willis Case Golf Course on Tuesday, 25 cross country teams came to town to showcase their skills amid heated competition — both literally and figuratively.

    As the sun beat down mercilessly on the golf course, D’Evelyn and Front Range Christian high schools both brought their best, or at least the best they could with the hilly, tough course in the upper-80-degree weather.

  • Columbine tennis, Andrews easily...

    By Alissa Noe

    LITTLETON — The road hasn’t always been easy for Columbine High School standout Luke Andrews, but where he lacked in experience, pure athleticism always kicked in. Now that’s he’s a junior and has three years of tennis under his belt, his game is being fueled by both.

  • Chatfield volleyball downs...

    By Seth Kahn

    The 4-2 Chatfield Chargers faced off against the ThunderRidge Grizzlies Monday night in a deceptively close match that saw the Chargers pull out the victory in the three-set sweep.

    With the student section donning its best ‘80s attire for spirit week, the Chargers roared onto the court and snagged the first set 25-19.

  • Chatfield football stampedes...

    By Dennis Pleuss

    LAKEWOOD — It was the Ben Frenette Show on Thursday night at Jeffco Stadium.

    Chatfield’s senior running back rushed 17 times for 228 yards and three touchdowns in the Chargers’ 52-7 win over Wheat Ridge on Sept. 14. It was the first home game of the season for Chatfield (2-1 record), who was ranked No. 5 in the CHSAANow.com Class 4A football poll coming into the non-league game.

  • D’Evelyn gets defensive in win...

    For the Courier

    LAKEWOOD — D’Evelyn senior receiver/defensive back Cullen Flynn was a prime example of how to respond to adversity on Friday at Jeffco Stadium.

    Green Mountain’s large homecoming football crowd got fired up early, when junior Ryan Burdi intercepted a pass from D’Evelyn quarterback Chad Dines that was intended for Flynn on the third play from scrimmage. The ball hit Flynn directly in the face mask on an out-pattern. Burdi snagged it and returned the pick to the Jaguars’ 3-yard line.

  • Columbine’s Killeen sisters...

     

    In just its second meet of the season, the Columbine High School gymnastics team fared well at the Green Mountain High School competition on Sept. 5, beating out Standley Lake High School for a second-place team finish behind Green Mountain.

    As a team, the Rebel girls finished with a 160.275 score, while Green Mountain won with 164.950 and Standley Lake took third at 152.725.
