    LAKEWOOD — It was unconventional, but D’Evelyn’s football coach Jeremy Bennett had no problem walking off Trailblazer Stadium on Sept. 9 with a 16-15 victory.

  • Rebels take third place at...

    AURORA — The Columbine Lady Rebels finished the annual Dave Sanders Memorial softball tournament at Aurora Sports Park on Sept. 10, having won four of five games with their only loss an 11-5 decision to nemesis Brighton in the semifinals. Brighton knocked Columbine out of last year’s 5A state tournament.

  • Holmes, Chargers work on game in...

    Christian Holmes’ approach to his tennis match against Dakota Ridge’s Austin Vancil on Sept. 7 was a simple one.

    “I was just trying a lot of new things, really just working on the things that are the weaknesses in my game,” the Chatfield sophomore said.

  • Rebels' Tait shares victory...

    ENGLEWOOD — Marcus Tait realizes that with each round that he plays, it’s him against the course. That, however, is easier said than done when you’re constantly squaring off against one of the state’s best in Lakewood senior Griffin Barela.

  • Jordan, Kuhn block out pain at...

    Lucas Jordan may have been a little bit dehydrated. He certainly was tired and his legs were aching, thus necessitating one of his D’Evelyn teammates to hold him upright.

    “I’m pretty dizzy, but I’m all right,” the Jaguars junior said.

  • Jeffco Open Space eyes land...

    The Jeffco Open Space staff is working on a land acquisition many involved think could be unprecedented for the county.

    Last month, Open Space Director Tom Hoby met with the county commissioners to present his agency’s second-quarter update. The meeting included highlights of eight projects Hoby wants the commission to approve, the most interesting of which is a potential land deal across the county line in Clear Creek.

  • Lady Eagles’ bats go silent in ...

    If there’s a number that will drive coaches batty, especially after a defeat, it’s runners left on base. Dakota Ridge had its fair share of them in its 9-1 home-opening softball loss to 5A fifth-ranked Eaglecrest on Aug. 31.

    For the record, the Lady Eagles stranded 10 runners, including at least one in each of the first six innings. Dakota Ridge left two runners on in the first and fourth innings and three in the fifth before the visiting Lady Raptors exploded for five runs in the sixth inning at Dave Atencio Field.

    With the entire roster returning from the No. 1 seed in last year’s 5A state volleyball tournament, you wouldn’t think Chatfield coach Stephanie Schick would fret about her team suffering a case of nerves in its 2016 opener. Especially at home, where the Lady Chargers were unbeaten in ’15.
