    Columbine seeks head coach after Lodden steps down

    Jeff Lodden has resigned as the varsity head coach for Columbine High School, athletic director Scott Christy said via e-mail March 17.
    Lodden led the Lady Rebels to a 7-17 record during the 2012-13 season, including 6-10 in the 5A Jeffco League. Columbine lost in the first round of the state tournament to Doherty.
    Columbine is searching for a new head coach. Anyone interested in the position should contact Christy at 303-982-3545 or schristy@jeffco.k12.co.us.

  • Ball bounces Lady Eagles’ way in...

    LAKEWOOD — Kayla Latham figured it was just a matter of time before the Dakota Ridge Lady Eagles would score. When they did — and, incidentally, it was on a goal by her — it was the momentum shift they needed in the South Jeffco Invitational.

  • Tired Rebels find way to tie D’...

    LAKEWOOD — The exhaustion Columbine’s girls soccer players exhibited was quite noticeable. It would have been hard not to notice that the Lady Rebels had just played their third game in three days.
    And though D’Evelyn walked out of Lakewood Memorial Field on March 16 having outscored Columbine 5-4 in penalty kicks, the South Jeffco Invitational tournament game officially goes down as a 1-1 tie. The penalty kicks were necessary per tournament rules only.

  • Eagles take it on the chin in...

    GREENWOOD VILLAGE — There was no grace period. No easing into anything.
    The Dakota Ridge baseball team kicked off its season against No. 1 ranked and defending state champion Cherry Creek and fell 12-2 in five innings on March 16 at Cherry Creek High School.
    The fifth-ranked Eagles, limited to just two days of outdoor practice because of snow on their field, came in to the game without as much as a scrimmage underneath their belt.

    Lions’ Jansky tosses no-hitter in season-opening victory

    Littleton junior Chris Jansky tossed a no-hitter while striking out 13 as the Lions opened the 2013 season with a 3-0 victory over Denver North on March 7.
    He faced just two batters over the minimum, allowing one on a walk and two more via errors.
    Littleton gave him some run support with one run in the third inning and two more in the fourth. Dylan Nickless, Will Brown and Colton Barrett scored for the Lions.

  • Marchese's path to juniors...

    Charlie Marchese got his first pair of hockey skates when he was 3 years old. At first he wasn’t very adept at skating, but over the next few years he became a capable inline hockey player. Those who play inline hockey, more likely than not, tend to be better ice hockey players as well, said his dad, Charlie Sr. Maybe that’s why the sport means so much to the 18-year-old Columbine High School senior.

  • Rebels exorcise previous demons

    AURORA – Old demons came back to haunt the Columbine Rebels as they faced the Regis Jesuit Raiders in the boys lacrosse season opener on March 8. Luckily for the Rebels they didn’t let their demons bring them down in an 8-5 victory at Regis Jesuit High School.

  • Chatfield's magical season...

    Andrew St. Germain drove uncontested through the lane and laid the basketball into the hoop with 7.8 seconds left. Then, he and his Chatfield boys basketball teammates painstakingly waited and waited and waited. Time was running out on their season, and there was nothing they could do to save it.

    A season in which the Chargers had won 21 consecutive games, including a 16-0 run through the 5A Jeffco League, was shockingly over as fifth-seeded Legend upset top-seeded Chatfield 51-49 in the Sweet 16 of the 5A state tournament March 6 at Chatfield Senior High School.
