  • Blinking not recommended

    The spring sports season is in full swing.

    However, if you blink you may very well miss it. I encourage high school sports fans to check out the spring sports over the next two months before it’s all over in a hurry.

  • Rebels’ strength in pitching...

    By Craig Harper — For the Courier

    LITTLETON — If it’s a dog-eat-dog world, then it’s no wonder why after slipping from a 19-2 record in 2014 to a 9-11 mark last season, Columbine’s baseball team has high hopes for 2016.

     “All our guys were puppies last year, and we’ve grown up a little bit. We should be right there in the hunt,” Columbine’s longtime coach Chuck Gillman said of the Class 5A Jeffco League championship.

  • Plenty of grit for Eagles

    LAKEWOOD — There will be growing pains for Dakota Ridge’s boys lacrosse team this spring.

    A handful of costly errors kept the Eagles (0-2 record) from winning their season opener against Chaparral on March 14 at Trailblazer Stadium in Lakewood.

  • Chargers cool under pressure

    LITTLETON — Believe it or not, Chatfield’s baseball team is well ahead of where it was at this point last season.

    Yes, the Chargers advanced all the way to the Class 5A state championship game before falling short in the title game against Rock Canyon. However, Chatfield didn’t win its third game of the 2015 season until April 20. A rough 1-8 start before Chatfield’s remarkable late-season run is something that still sticks with this current group of Chargers.

  • State champs end Chargers’...

    BOULDER — It took the defending state champions, along with one of the top recruits in the nation, to end Chatfield’s boys basketball season.

    Overland ended the Chargers’ 15-game winning streak with a 72-50 victory in the Class 5A state semifinals March 11 at the Coors Events Center in Boulder. The Trailblazers’ 6-foot-10, 240-pound senior De’Ron Davis, who will play for Indiana University next season, powered Overland on both ends of the court against Chatfield.

  • Just the beginning

    BOULDER — A spontaneous final team meeting for Chatfield’s 2015-16 boys basketball team was held at center court in a nearly empty Coors Events Center on March 11.

    With midnight approaching, the clock had already run out for the Chargers (24-3 record) after a 72-50 Class 5A state semifinal loss to now two-time defending state champion Overland.

  • Rebels align for another state...

    LITTLETON — Brittany Wilson is back on the high school soccer field.

    As one of the top young goalkeepers — not only in the state of Colorado, but nationally — she will compete at the high school level this spring. After two seasons playing for Chatfield, Wilson trained with her Real Colorado club boys team last spring instead of playing for the Chargers.

  • Defending champs too much for...

    BOULDER — It wasn’t the ending Chatfield’s boys basketball team envisioned when it stepped onto the court at the Coors Events Center in Boulder last Friday night.

    The Chargers had aspirations of upsetting the defending Class 5A state champion Overland Trailblazers in the semifinals March 11, in turn, getting a shot to win Chatfield’s first boys hoops state title since 1992 the next day in the title game.

  • Charging into the Final Four

    DENVER — The effort of the many outweighed the effort of the one March 5 at the Denver Coliseum.

    Chatfield’s boys basketball team used its depth and balance to outlast and overcome the remarkable individual performance of Cherry Creek senior Will Halfon. The Chargers reeled in a 63-55 overtime victory despite 38 points from Halfon.
