  • Columbine chugging right along

    LAKEWOOD — The further one goes into the playoffs games aren’t supposed to be as lopsided as Columbine’s 35-14 win over Highlands Ranch was on Nov. 19 at Jeffco Stadium. Not even the final score does justice for the way the Rebels’ defense contained the visiting Falcons.
    “Our defense has played great all year to be honest with you. They bend a little, but never break. They keep teams out of the end zone,” Columbine head coach Andy Lowry said.

  • Good Knight for McDondle, Rebels

    BOULDER — Bernard McDondle was pretty excited. No, it wasn’t just because of the final score — though that would be understandable after the Columbine Rebels scored the game’s first 35 points on their way to a 41-14 5A state football second-round win over Fairview on Nov. 11 at Recht Field.
    No, what really tickled the sophomore running back’s fancy was that he finally got to beat older brother and workhorse running back Cameron McDondle for once.

  • State bid eludes Lady Falcons

    ENGLEWOOD — The Front Range Christian Lady Falcons suffered three consecutive losses in the four-team 2A Region D volleyball tournament on Nov. 5 at Kent Denver High School, capped with a two sets to one defeat to Calhan in their final match.
    Before facing Calhan, Front Range Christian played and lost to both Byers (24-26, 25-15, 25-20, 25-20) and Lutheran (25-15, 25-17, 25-10), both of whom advanced to the 2A state tournament on Nov. 11-12 at the Denver Coliseum.

  • Chargers can’t keep up with GJ...

    GRAND JUNCTION — For a few brief moments on Nov. 4, the Chatfield football team had visions of pulling off the upset of the season.

  • Rebels make good on few shots

    LAKEWOOD — As far as 5A state football playoffs goes, this was about to be as regular season as it gets. Then again, it was No. 1 Columbine against No. 32 Fort Collins. And, typically, that’s a mismatch. This time, it was again, though it wasn’t as lopsided as it could’ve been.

  • Cox overcomes odds, injury

    THORNTON — To be a gymnast one needs to have flexibility, coordination and dedication. But in order to be considered a top gymnast at the 5A state championship an athlete has to give more. That’s exactly what Columbine senior Lexi Cox did.
