  • Bausch, Swarm capture state

    GLENDALE — If soccer is a gentlemen’s game played by hooligans, rugby is a hooligan’s game played by gentlemen and females. Tough females, at that.

    The Westside Swarm girls’ rugby team, who are comprised of athletes from all around Jeffco, defeated the Highlands Ranch Harlequins, 29-7, to win the 7-on-7 state championship Nov. 8 at Infinity Park, capping off a flawless 10-0 season.

    LAKEWOOD — Columbine-Pomona II had a similar feel to its Jeffco League predecessor. The Panthers ruled the second half again and won the 5A second-round football playoff game 21-14.

    But the Rebels came away from the Nov. 7 loss at Jeffco Stadium feeling better about themselves and the future.

  • Broomfield stifles Dakota Ridge

    LAKEWOOD — One by one, Dakota Ridge seniors Brandon Braun, Tyler Magana, Nick Cohn, Jack Cavallaro and Brock Howes addressed their teammates as rain fell on Jeffco Stadium on Nov. 7. The scoreboard had already erased the 27-17 final score, but the pain was still settling in on a stunning loss to Broomfield in the first round of the 4A football state playoffs.

  • Chatfield wears Cinderella...

    DENVER — Cinderella came to the dance, and she was dressed as the Chatfield Lady Chargers.

    The clock may have struck midnight — OK, technically 7:57 p.m. — on Chatfield in the 5A state volleyball championships, but just the simple fact that Chatfield was even playing in its first state final was nothing short of astonishing, considering the route it took to get there.

  • All-conference fall sports

    THORNTON — Elizabeth Dominguez returned to the 5A state gymnastics championships with a chip on her shoulder.

    “I had a rough meet at state last year,” the Chatfield senior said of finishing 45th in the all-around while failing to make an event final.

    AURORA — His players are too young to have the déjà vu feeling that Columbine coach Andy Lowry was experiencing after the Rebels dominated Rangeview for a 48-7 first-round upset in the 5A football playoffs Oct. 31 at Aurora Public Schools Stadium.

  • Eagles end Lions’ playoff hopes

    One team — Dakota Ridge — was already headed to the 4A state football playoffs whether it won or loss. The other — Littleton — was the front-runner for an unlikely 4A Plains Conference title coming into the Oct. 31 regular-season finale at Littleton Public Schools Stadium. Despite the high stakes surrounding the contest, the game itself never lived up to the hype.
