Dakota Ridge High School exchange student Emmanuel Mwinbong is doing a community service project to help his home country of Ghana. Mwinbong is asking for donations of mosquito nets or money to buy nets to bring back with him to Ghana and help with the awareness of the malaria endemic.
The fund-raiser will be Friday and Saturday, April 15 and 16, at Jeffco Stadium during the two-day Pomona Invitational track meet. Nearly 60 track teams from across the state are scheduled to participate in the meet.
LAKEWOOD — The positive steps Dakota Ridge’s boys lacrosse team took during its spring break trip to California got plowed away like the snow from a Colorado blizzard.
The Eagles (1-5 record, 0-1 in league) picked up their first win of the season during the three-game trip to the west coast and played in another pair of close games. However, the momentum didn’t carry over in Dakota Ridge’s Front Range League opener against Boulder (2-3, 1-0) on April 1 at Trailblazer Stadium in Lakewood.
LAKEWOOD — Taking the field is something Columbine’s boys lacrosse team won’t take for granted this season.
The Rebels were scheduled to play three games in California during spring break. However, Columbine’s flight that was scheduled to leave Denver International Airport on March 23 was canceled because of the blizzard that began early Wednesday morning.
LITTLETON — Believe it or not, Chatfield’s baseball team is well ahead of where it was at this point last season.
Yes, the Chargers advanced all the way to the Class 5A state championship game before falling short in the title game against Rock Canyon. However, Chatfield didn’t win its third game of the 2015 season until April 20. A rough 1-8 start before Chatfield’s remarkable late-season run is something that still sticks with this current group of Chargers.
LITTLETON — Brittany Wilson is back on the high school soccer field.
As one of the top young goalkeepers — not only in the state of Colorado, but nationally — she will compete at the high school level this spring. After two seasons playing for Chatfield, Wilson trained with her Real Colorado club boys team last spring instead of playing for the Chargers.
