  • Rebels tuned up for state tourney

    LAKEWOOD — Fittingly to what has been a miserable spring season when it comes to weather, Columbine and Conifer girls lacrosse teams finished up the regular season in a cold and gloomy May 7 at Trailblazer Stadium.

  • D’Evelyn taking 10 players to...

    DENVER — D’Evelyn’s girls tennis program came up just short the last three seasons on grabbing a regional title.

    That trend changed May 6 at Colorado Academy in Denver. The Jaguars, Class 4A Jeffco League champions, edged the host Mustangs after falling short to Colorado Academy last season and Kent Denver the two previous seasons.

  • Dakota Ridge handles curve at...

    LITTLETON — Seven straight victories in the Class 5A Jeffco League, along with winning the conference tournament, gave Dakota Ridge a legitimate argument to host one of the eight district tournaments Saturday, May 14.

  • Chargers net regional title

    LITTLETON — Chatfield senior Jenna Alvarez has handled her demotion better than most.

    “Honestly, playing No. 2 doubles is frustrating after playing No. 1 doubles last year,” Alvarez said during the Class 5A Region 8 girls tennis tournament May 5 at Ken Caryl Ranch House. “The girls at No. 1 doubles right now have been together so long it didn’t make sense to split them up. I love my partner and we are doing so well.”

  • Dakota Ridge girls sprint to...

    LAKEWOOD — Dakota Ridge’s girls 800-meter sprint medley relay team began the final day of the two-day Jeffco Elite Meet with a bang May 5 at Jeffco Stadium.

    The all-senior relay team of Genevieve Cruz, Carina Wilkerson, Olivia Landers and Cayli Hume broke the school record when it won the first event on the track Thursday afternoon. The time of 1 minute, 49.29 seconds easily outdistanced the Eagles from Lakewood and D’Evelyn at the finish line.

  • Youth volunteers restore eroded...

    A heavily eroded section of trail near the Audubon Center, a bird sanctuary and educational center at Chatfield State Park, now has a smooth path for hikers thanks to the efforts of high school students in the Cairn Youth Program of Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado.

    South Jeffco resident Davis Bonner, a senior at Heritage High School, and others in the program worked April 23 to restore the trail, which had been washed out by rain.
    “Our job was to shovel crusher fine along the trail,” Bonner said.

    LAKEWOOD — A shot on goal is never a bad thing.

    Chatfield proved that fact April 28 at Lakewood Memorial Field. The Chargers’ first shot on goal came in the 55th minute and led to the game-winning goal in a 1-0 win over rival Dakota Ridge.

  • Rebels respond after giving up...

    LAKEWOOD — Columbine’s girls soccer team was able to flip the switch April 28 at Lakewood Memorial Field.

    After giving up their first goal in Class 5A Jeffco League play and falling behind Lakewood 1-0, the Rebels responded in an impressive way. Columbine (11-0-2 record, 5-0-1 in league) poured in six goals in the final 11 minutes of the first half to take a 6-1 lead.

    LAKEWOOD — Dwelling on the past isn’t in the nature of Columbine’s girls lacrosse team.

    Hopes for back-to-back perfect seasons in the Jeffco League eluded Columbine early with a 12-11 overtime loss to Ralston Valley in the Rebels’ second conference game April 7.
