  • Rebels’ depth proves to be key

    Depth is key in team swimming and the Columbine Rebels have depth.

    It was on display as the Rebels won their second dual meet of the season March 18 at the Ridge Recreation Center, beating Standley Lake, 146-136, despite taking first place in only three of the 12 varsity events.

    Columbine had seven second-place and six third-place finishes to gain a good deal of its points and take the win in what truly was a team effort, which is just what head coach Kristi Marosy wants.

  • Eagles learning as they go along

    LAKEWOOD — Elise Eppard was playing at No. 3 singles a year ago. This year, she’s at No. 1. Then there’s Becca Meyer, Dakota Ridge’s No. 2 singles player. She was a part of the Lady Eagles’ No. 4 doubles team in 2010.

  • Kincaid rules 3,200 at...

    This looks familiar.

    Though Dakota Ridge had the strength in numbers in the boys’ 3,200-meter run March 19 at the ThunderRidge Invitational at Sports Authority Stadium in Parker, Columbine had William Kincaid.

    Just like he did at October’s 5A state cross country championships, Kincaid chased down a first-place finish ahead of his Dakota Ridge counterparts, winning the two-mile race in 9 minutes, 48.46 seconds to set a meet record, breaking his previous mark set a year ago by more than 10 seconds.

  • Chatfield swimmers flex muscles...

    The Chatfield Chargers’ boys swim team made a statement that it is one of the teams to beat in Jeffco.

    The Chargers thrashed an undermanned Ralston Valley team, 191-118, on March 18 at the Ridge Recreation Center, winning 10 of 12 events.

  • Roundup: Fishel homers, Wilson...

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — Nate Fishel went 2-for-3, homered and drove in three runs as Dakota Ridge rallied to top host Valor Christian, 6-4, on March 16 for its first win of the season.

    Will Ochoa added two hits, while Ben Nutsch scored two runs for the Eagles.

    Steve Wilson allowed four runs — just two earned — on seven hits en route to the complete-game victory. He struck out eight.

  • Second-half charge lifts...

    LAKEWOOD — Casey Kopchik just might be the first one to tell you that winning the season opener, which Chatfield did with a 7-4 victory over Evergreen on March 11 at Trailblazer Stadium, is huge, but you’ve got to keep pushing.

    The Chargers, ironically, made their first push in the second half. Chatfield, a state quarterfinalist a year ago, scored the game’s final four goals — two from Kopchik — to erase a brief second-half deficit.    

  • Rebels tackling learning curve

    It was only one mishap, but early in the season, with a banged-up team and players still trying to get adjusted with one another, sometimes that’s all it takes. That was the case for the Columbine Lady Rebels on March 12.

    Courtney Brady’s goal midway through the first half, off an assist from Whitney Ravan, was all visiting Grand Junction needed for a 1-0 girls soccer victory. The win avenged a 5A state playoff loss to Columbine a year ago.

  • Eagles strike out in opener

    GREENWOOD VILLAGE — It wasn’t that Steven Wilson wasn’t throwing strikes — he did. The Dakota Ridge junior just didn’t throw enough of them, especially early in the count. As a result, Cherry Creek took advantage in the teams’ season opener
