  • A cut above the rest

    There’s a quiet confidence within Sydney Merchant. It’s evident both in the way she speaks and when she’s on the golf course.

    Chatfield runs the table, captures 5A Jeffco League title

    Gabrielle Jones and Catherine Day rallied for a 6-7 (4), 7-5, 6-2 victory over Calee White and McKenna Thomas at No. 2 doubles, helping Chatfield to a 4-3 victory over Lakewood on April 21 at Ken-Caryl Ranch House.
    The win secured an 8-0 conference season for the Lady Chargers and a 5A Jeffco League championship.

    DENVER — Columbine could have mailed this one in having already won the 5A Front Range league title with a 3-2 win on the road at Fairview two days earlier. But that would not have  been acceptable. After all, this was Columbine, the state’s seventh-ranked team, colliding with  eighth-ranked Mullen.
    The game was decided in overtime with Mullen escaping with the 8-7 sudden victory on April 25.

  • Bezdek, Chatfield have Columbine...

    Something about Columbine brings out the best in Bree Bezdek and the Chatfield girls soccer team.
    Bezdek, a sophomore striker, notched her second two-goal game in three career outings against the Lady Rebels as the Lady Chargers completed a season sweep with a 2-1 come-from-behind 5A Jeffco League victory on April 25 at Columbine High School. Bezdek scored both goals in last year’s 2-1 win but went scoreless in Chatfield’s 1-0 triumph on March 15 in the South Jeffco Invitational.

  • Chargers pull away late from...

    LAKEWOOD — Rachael Walker was sitting in the penalty box, the result of a two-minute yellow card as Arapahoe scored back-to-back goals early in the second half to take a two-goal lead. It not only would be the fourth-ranked Lady Warriors’ largest cushion of the game, but it would end up being the last two goals they would score.

  • Rebels slam previously unbeaten...

    Tyler Mohr recognized that Chatfield Senior High pitcher Nick Chamberlain was starting off his pitch rotation with a curveball. So he bided his time as the first pitch collected some dirt. The next pitch was a high-and-in fastball that the Columbine third baseman was ready to let fly.

    He did just that, cracking a two-out grand slam in the bottom of the fifth. It was the first of two homers in the frame as the third-ranked Rebels scored six runs in the inning to fend off top-ranked Chatfield 12-6 on a cloudy April 23 afternoon at Frank DeAngelis Field.

  • ‘Skills area’ planned for...

    Plans for upgrades at Apex Open Space Park in Golden include a mountain bike “skills area” in a currently unused space near the parking lot and the trailhead.

  • Webcam shows parking...

    Hikers and bikers headed to Mount Falcon Park now can check online to see how many cars are in the parking lot.

    A webcam installed by Jeffco Open Space workers shows panorama shots of the often-full parking lot, updated every two seconds. The webcam is in “beta” testing at: http://jeffco.us/parks/mount-falcon-park-webcam.

    Chatfield edges Ralston Valley, closes in on 5A Jeffco title

    Jia Wiebe rallied in the third set for a 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 victory over Kelsey Maas at No. 3 singles as host Chatfield edged Ralston Valley 4-3 to remain undefeated in the 5A Jeffco League on April 17.
    The win set up a showdown with Lakewood on April 21 to all but determine the 2014 conference title. A Chatfield win would lock up a Lady Chargers championship. Results from that match weren’t available at press time.

  • Dakota Ridge knocking on playoff...

    DENVER — Dakota Ridge’s second-year lacrosse program didn’t accomplish one of its primary goals this season: beating rivals Columbine and/or Chatfield. But after a 14-4 win over Littleton in the Littleton Cup on April 19 at the University of Denver’s Peter Barton Stadium, a berth in the 16-team 5A playoffs remained a solid possibility, even a likelihood.
