    RUGBY
    Westside searching for new, experienced players for 2015

    Westside girls rugby team is looking for high school players for the 2015 season. Athletes from any school are welcomed to join the club. Experience isn’t necessary.
    According to a report by the Sports & Fitness Industry Association, rugby is the fastest growing youth sport in the country with an enrollment growth of 81 percent between 2008 and 2013.

  • Lady Falcons note improvement...

    Comparatively speaking, Front Range Christian saw measurable improvement from its season-opening volleyball match two nights earlier at Lyons and its Sept. 10 home opener with Heritage Christian.
    For starters, the Lady Falcons put up a more competitive battle this go-around compared to the 25-7, 25-11, 25-14 loss to the Lady Lions.
    And though the end result was the same — a straight-set defeat — the 25-12, 25-23, 26-24, the setback was more competitive.

  • Column: Thanks for the ride. I’...

    LITTLETON — It’s Thursday, Sept. 10, and, for the first time, I’m afraid to say, I’m sitting on the purple bleachers inside Front Range Christian School’s gymnasium. It’s not that I didn’t want to be there. I certainly did. It’s just that, until now, I had never covered a game in the building before.

  • Lady Eagles pass measuring stick...

    ERIE —The mound at Erie High School was something that Dakota Ridge junior pitcher Carlye Levy said she had to adjust to. It was lower than she expected. But once she got comfortable, she was in a rhythm that not even the host Lady Tigers could get her out of.
    Levy retired 12 of 13 batters at one point and struck out 12, while Sara Meyer hit a two-run homer as 5A Dakota Ridge doubled up 4A Erie 6-3 on Sept. 12 at Erie High School.

  • Lions roar loudly at Liberty Bell

    Heading into the 38th annual Liberty Bell Invitational, Littleton sophomore Addi Iken peeked at last year’s Division 3 results to get a feel for what it would be like this go-around. After all, in 2014, the Lions ran in Division 2.

    BOYS SOCCER
    Columbine, Mullen battle to a 4-all stalemate

    Will Harris scored a goal and had two assists as Columbine battled to a 4-all tie with Mullen on Sept. 3 at Columbine High School.

    Columbine led 2-1 at halftime before the teams combined for five second-half goals.

  • Cabot’s return ignites Chatfield...

    By Craig Harper
    For the Courier
    LAKEWOOD — The Chatfield boys soccer team was badly in need of an offensive infusion and a win as it took on Wheat Ridge in its third game. The return of Jacob Cabot helped account for both in a 1-0 Chargers non-league victory at Lakewood Memorial Field on Sept. 3.

  • Lowry, Rebels handle Overland

    Columbine senior quarterback Jake Lowry showed Overland that he can be a duel threat last Sept. 3 at Jefferson County Stadium. Lowry threw two touchdown passes to Columbine junior Mikey Griebel and ran for two more scores in the Rebels’ 28-0 victory over the Trailblazers.
    “My motivation was to make plays, whether it was running or throwing,” Lowry said. “It was just to get in the end zone and make plays for my team.”

  • Dominant performance

    Stephanie Schick probably couldn’t be any happier with the way the Chatfield Lady Chargers’ volleyball team has started 2015 than she already is. When one considers Chatfield, the 5A state runner-up, graduated six seniors from a season ago and doesn’t have one — not one — on this year’s squad that it could be considered a detriment for a team. Not so.
