  • Column: CHSAA’s flawed RPI ...

    I’ve got to get this off my chest, and I’m not going to mince my words: CHSAA’s RPI system is flawed. It’s broken. It needs to be tweaked, if not just outright fixed — and fast.
    The system with its calculated setup to account for a team’s winning percentage, its opponents’ winning percentage and that of the opponents’ opponents is noble, but too much weight is put on how well one’s opponents play and that of their own opponents and not nearly enough on how a team does in the win-loss column.

  • Walters, Ratcliff make some ...

    THORNTON — Morgan Walters is just a freshman, but it’s safe to say that in her first year as a high school gymnast that she made a name for herself. It just wasn’t a certainty what kind of impact she would have when the season started two months ago because of her relative youth.

    When they had to dig deep to preserve their goal of reaching the 5A state tournament for the third straight year, the Chatfield volleyball team mined their memory.
    The Lady Chargers harkened back to 2014, when they had lost their first match at state and found themselves on the brink of elimination after losing the first two sets to Cherry Creek and trailed 24-19 in the third. Sophomore-laden Chatfield rallied to beat the Lady Bruins, and proceeded on to the semifinals.

    IDAHO SPRINGS — On senior night at Golddigger Stadium, a matchup between Clear Creek and the Front Range Christian looked poised to be an offensive showcase with the Falcons coming in averaging 152.4 rushing yards a game and Clear Creek averaging 214.9 yards passing behind the arm of Ty Judge.

  • D’Evelyn boys miss out on goal, ...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — There was no question that D’Evelyn had its hopes set high — real high.

    The Jaguars came into the 3A state cross country championships on Oct. 29 eyeing Alamosa and a boys team championship. Alamosa, the top-ranked team in 3A, won a state title in 2014 and one in 4A five years earlier.

  • Chatfield charges back late

    LAKEWOOD — The concern was evident. Be it Tylor Rowles, Dalton Keene or anyone on the Chatfield Chargers sideline, there were some anxious moments, and rightfully so.

    Down 29-17 with the clock winding down on the third quarter, the possibility was real that No. 2 Chatfield was about to lose control of the 4A Plains League to an inspired Dakota Ridge squad fighting for its playoff life Oct. 28 at Jeffco Stadium.

    Then the comeback started.

  • D’Evelyn overcomes sluggish...

    LAKEWOOD — D’Evelyn, most certainly, didn’t come out ready to play its 4A Jeffco League volleyball tournament opener against Wheat Ridge on Oct. 20. A timeout, however, rectified the slow start.

    LAKEWOOD — Dakota Ridge football team wanted to win for a teammate — sophomore Christian Lyons — who couldn’t be on the field Oct. 20 at Jeffco Stadium.

  • D’Evelyn dominates at regionals

    THORNTON — There are times when one does well, and then there are times when you go above and beyond, and exceed expectations. That’s what the D’Evelyn boys’ cross country team did at regionals.

    The Jaguars, with five runners in the top eight, were dominant at the 3A Region 5 championships on Oct. 21 at the Margaret W. Carpenter Recreation Center, winning the team title with a minuscule 24 points. Skyview Academy was a distant second with 58.
