  • A change for the better for...

    Kristyn Peters had been in the situation before. As a rising senior in high school, the softball prodigy transferred from Green Mountain High to Dakota Ridge. She was the new kid on the block. 

    Fast forward a couple of years and it was happening again, this time from Colorado State to Metro State University of Denver.

    Before she fit just like a glove, leading the Lady Eagles in homers (nine), RBIs (34) and runs scored (38). Dakota Ridge reached the 5A state title game before falling to Loveland.

    Chatfield, Columbine and Dakota Ridge share a common apprehension as they head into the 2016 football season: replacing a starting quarterback.

    “Everybody’s trying to do it, and all of us lost good quarterbacks too,” Dakota Ridge coach Ron Woitalewicz said during the Eagles’ 17th annual 7-on-7 tournament on July 7.

  • KCLL soaks in district tourney

    AURORA ­— It’s 9:55 p.m. on a Friday night, and usually one would find Colton Gregory doing something else other than being at a baseball field.

    “Sleeping,” Colton matter-of-factly said.

    But not on July 8. Not when your team — the Ken-Caryl Little League Majors — is playing in the District 5 tournament.

  • McDondle running toward the pros

    Cameron McDondle left a lasting impression on the football field at CSU-Pueblo. 

    The 2012 Columbine High graduate, no doubt, has a special blend of power and speed to run over or break the ankle of aggressive defenders and run around them.

    He also left school with a degree in criminal justice. That career, however, is on hold until the 5-foot-7, 202-pounder finds out whether a pro football career is in the cards.

    What’s the coolest thing you’ve seen at a park?

  • Open Space unveils possible...

    Jeffco Open Space’s proposed renovations at Mount Falcon’s west trailhead include more centralized amenities around the main parking lot area.

    At an open house Thursday night at the Indian Hills Community Center, Open Space representatives said the trailhead’s current challenges include the lower parking lot, which requires visitors to walk up the road to the trailhead; a kiosk that is not centrally located; an outdated restroom; and excessive after-hours use.

  • Ken-Caryl U13 squad enters...

    Be it from hitting grounders to his infielders to launching fly balls to outfielders or keeping a keen eye on his pitchers, Scott Worman has a pretty good handle on his players. 

    He should, after all. He helped coach a handful of them during Ken-Caryl Little League’s regular season.

    Shoot, he’s coached many of them, including his son Dylan, dating back to T-ball. And the ones he didn’t coach, he’s watched them play.

  • Ex-Rebel Kincaid running with a...

    There was roughly 200 meters to the finish, and Woody Kincaid was nowhere near the front of the pack. But the 2011 Columbine High graduate kicked it up another notch and gradually closed the gap on Galen Rupp. Yes, that Galen Rupp, the silver medalist in the 10,000 at the 2012 Olympic games.

  • Summer swim league comes full...

    Summer swimming league is a lot like the Eagles song “Hotel California” ­— once you check in, you can never leave. For those who are skeptical, one only needed attend the 27th annual Ken Caryl Invitational swim meet, which took place June 24-25 at the Ken-Caryl Ranch House pool.
