  • Lady Chargers serves up 2nd...

    BOULDER — Gabbie Jones and Catherine Day, Chatfield’s No. 2 doubles tandem, rallied from a 5-1 deficit in the first-set tiebreak against Fairview’s Angela Cai and Laura Jamison at No. 2 doubles en route to winning the 5A Region 4 championship on April 30 at Fairview High School. Jones and Day won the match 7-6 (10-8), 7-5.
    They earned one of five state-qualifying spots for the 5A Jeffco League champion Lady Chargers, who placed second to Fairview in the regional team standings.

  • Columbine’s No. 3 doubles team...

    Leah Rogers and Carley Maloney didn’t start out the 2014 season as partners, but they found out quickly that they were a perfect fit for each other.
    Columbine’s No. 3 doubles partners are aggressive players by nature. They communicate well on the court and they share a similar sense of humor. All of those ingredients proved to be a recipe for success.
    “It turned out to be a really good partnership. I think it worked out really well for both of us,” Rogers said.

  • A cut above the rest

    There’s a quiet confidence within Sydney Merchant. It’s evident both in the way she speaks and when she’s on the golf course.

    Gabrielle Jones and Catherine Day rallied for a 6-7 (4), 7-5, 6-2 victory over Calee White and McKenna Thomas at No. 2 doubles, helping Chatfield to a 4-3 victory over Lakewood on April 21 at Ken-Caryl Ranch House.
    The win secured an 8-0 conference season for the Lady Chargers and a 5A Jeffco League championship.

    DENVER — Columbine could have mailed this one in having already won the 5A Front Range league title with a 3-2 win on the road at Fairview two days earlier. But that would not have  been acceptable. After all, this was Columbine, the state’s seventh-ranked team, colliding with  eighth-ranked Mullen.
    The game was decided in overtime with Mullen escaping with the 8-7 sudden victory on April 25.

  • Bezdek, Chatfield have Columbine...

    Something about Columbine brings out the best in Bree Bezdek and the Chatfield girls soccer team.
    Bezdek, a sophomore striker, notched her second two-goal game in three career outings against the Lady Rebels as the Lady Chargers completed a season sweep with a 2-1 come-from-behind 5A Jeffco League victory on April 25 at Columbine High School. Bezdek scored both goals in last year’s 2-1 win but went scoreless in Chatfield’s 1-0 triumph on March 15 in the South Jeffco Invitational.

  • Chargers pull away late from...

    LAKEWOOD — Rachael Walker was sitting in the penalty box, the result of a two-minute yellow card as Arapahoe scored back-to-back goals early in the second half to take a two-goal lead. It not only would be the fourth-ranked Lady Warriors’ largest cushion of the game, but it would end up being the last two goals they would score.

  • Rebels slam previously unbeaten...

    Tyler Mohr recognized that Chatfield Senior High pitcher Nick Chamberlain was starting off his pitch rotation with a curveball. So he bided his time as the first pitch collected some dirt. The next pitch was a high-and-in fastball that the Columbine third baseman was ready to let fly.

    He did just that, cracking a two-out grand slam in the bottom of the fifth. It was the first of two homers in the frame as the third-ranked Rebels scored six runs in the inning to fend off top-ranked Chatfield 12-6 on a cloudy April 23 afternoon at Frank DeAngelis Field.

  • ‘Skills area’ planned for...

    Plans for upgrades at Apex Open Space Park in Golden include a mountain bike “skills area” in a currently unused space near the parking lot and the trailhead.

  • Webcam shows parking...

    Hikers and bikers headed to Mount Falcon Park now can check online to see how many cars are in the parking lot.

    A webcam installed by Jeffco Open Space workers shows panorama shots of the often-full parking lot, updated every two seconds. The webcam is in “beta” testing at: http://jeffco.us/parks/mount-falcon-park-webcam.
