  • Golddiggers erupt in 2nd half,...

    LITTLETON — Lucas Gerding would’ve played quarterback if he had to. After all, the junior is Clear Creek’s backup signal-caller. Fortunately, for the Golddiggers on Saturday, he wasn’t asked to until the outcome wasn’t in doubt. Instead, Gerding made his presence — as he has all year long — catching passes from Ty Judge.

  • Dakota Ridge boys place fifth in...

    COLORADO SPRINGS - In a highly competitive 5A boys’ state cross country race at the Norris Penrose Event Center on Saturday, Dakota Ridge High School finished fifth overall.

  • Columbine ends season at 2nd...

    AURORA — Columbine senior Melanie Lopez experienced bookend trips to the quarterfinals at the 5A state softball tournament during her career. But the one that capped her senior season was more rewarding.

  • D’Evelyn cross country sending...

    ARVADA — All season long, the D’Evelyn cross country team has made the state competition its goal, and now that it’s qualified both the boys and girls teams for the end-all race in Colorado Springs this Saturday, it seems as though all the Jaguars’ hard work has paid dividends.

    That’s not to say their job is done yet, though.

  • Front Range Christian sending...

    LYONS — Front Range Christian School’s cross country team may be small this year — with only a handful of boys and no girls to represent it on the race course — but that didn’t stop the Falcons from qualifying two boys for the state competition this weekend.

    The sophomore tandem, Andre Stablein and Anthony Earl, qualified individually for state by placing in the top 15 runners at the Class 2A Region 1 cross country meet at Lyons High School on Thursday. Stablein finished at 18:02.00 at ninth overall, followed by Earl at 14th place (18:50.00).

  • MAKING A STATE-MENT: Chatfield...

    DENVER — Chatfield’s junior tennis star Christian Holmes surpassed expectations on Saturday, not only winning the 5A state tennis tournament at No. 1 singles, but also being the first player at a singles position to win state in Chatfield school history.

    It was also the first time a Jeffco player had won the title in the largest classification (5A) since 1996 and the fifth time ever since state tennis first began in 1927.

  • Andrews took just three years to...

    DENVER — Columbine’s junior Luke Andrews may have only started playing tennis three years ago as a freshman, but that didn’t stop him from making it to the 5A state tournament on Thursday at the Gates Tennis Center.

    The last time Columbine sent a No. 1 singles player to state was in 2006, when Angelo Faustino finished third overall.

  • Columbine gymnastics fares well...

    LITTLETON — All season long, Columbine gymnastics has been working its way up to put itself in a good position going into the postseason. After placing second at its own meet on Thursday, the Rebels are feeling pretty good right now.

    “They had a great night,” coach Barbara Quinn said. “They had a really great night, and they’re all really stepping up at the end of the season. It’s fun to watch.”

    By Dennis Pleuss

    LAKEWOOD — It’s far from wrapped up, but Columbine football has taken a sizable advantage in the Class 5A Mount Cameron League.

    The Rebels, No. 6 in the CHSAANow.com 5A rankings, have back-to-back wins over conference foes No. 10 Fairview and No. 7 Mullen to grab the inside track to a league title and automatic berth in the 16-team state field. Columbine scored 38 unanswered points from the first quarter until late in the third quarter on the way to a 41-24 victory over Mullen on Thursday at Jeffco Stadium.

  • D'Evelyn softball ends...

    GOLDEN — The D'Evelyn softball team wouldn't seem to have much in common with Major League Baseball's Washington Nationals, except that both have joined the close-but-no-cigar club of late.

    "We just can't get over that hump,'' veteran coach Dan Porreco lamented on Oct. 14 after the Jaguars came up one win shy of qualifying for the 4A state tournament for the second straight year.
