  • Charger volleyball blocks Lakewood’s chance at victory

    LITTLETON — Heading into its Lakewood match on Oct. 10, Chatfield volleyball was on a roll. The Tigers almost stopped their momentum.

    Almost. In the five-game contest, the Tigers may have won a couple battles, but the Chargers won 3-2 the war on their own home court.

    Throughout the match, the Chargers had to earn every single point, many of which came off the block. That’s something that Chatfield’s been working on all season long.

    ARVADA — Columbine rushed its way to an impressive victory in a Class 5A top-10 football showdown against Ralston Valley on Thursday.

    The two top-10 teams — No. 3 Columbine and No. 7 Ralston Valley — sparred at the North Area Athletic Complex during which the Rebels rushed for four touchdowns in a 29-14 win to stay undefeated on the season.

  • FRCS XC braves cold at leagues

    LAFAYETTE — A  little snow and cold weren’t going to slow down the Front Range Christian cross country team at the Mile High League meet on Oct. 10 at Dawson School.

    In fact, the Falcon juniors performed pretty well.

    Coming in fourth, Andre Stablein crossed the finish line at 17:28.

    “I was wondering if I’d even break 18 at this race just because of the weather, and it’s so muddy and slippery, so I was happy with my time,” said Stablein, who’s poised to possibly make a run at state.

  • Ballot initiatives don’t deserve our support

    Two ballot initiatives that we’ll see on this year’s ballot are proof positive that people from a variety of political perspectives are more than capable of coming up with remarkably bad ideas.
    Opponents of fracking and people who want to restrict governments’ ability to take actions that restrict use of private property in any way — groups that you would be hard pressed to put in common — both have initiatives on the ballot that are much too extreme and should be defeated.

  • We need divisiveness

    The recent Brett Kavanaugh circus has, in my opinion, drastically and negatively moved our political dialogue/process. We have been led by malicious, character-assassinating politicians into a dark place from which I seriously doubt that we will safely emerge in the near future.  
    We are now in a time and place where the new rules of political engagement are being written as we speak. Suffice it to say that we are now in the age of the Politics of Personal Destruction.

  • D’Evelyn soccer gets on the board in Evergreen loss

    ARVADA — Going into its game on Oct. 3 at the North Area Athletic Complex, D’Evelyn soccer had yet to score a goal.

    For the first time all season, the Jaguars found their offense and gave Evergreen quite the game as the Cougars pulled out the 4-3 win thanks to some key late saves by sophomore keeper Keaton Gressman.

    Evergreen wasn’t expecting D’Evelyn to come out and play the way it did.

  • Eagles break through in the second half, top Rebels

    LAKEWOOD —For Marco Cordero, scoring a goal, as he said, “felt really nice.” For his teammate Jake Eickelman, scoring was vindication after narrowly missing out on a goal minutes earlier.

    Cordero’s goal — his first of the season — in the 57th minute snapped a scoreless tie, and Eickelman’s breakaway seven minutes later would be all Dakota Ridge needed in a 2-0 boys soccer victory over Columbine on Friday night at Lakewood Memorial Field.

  • Understanding today’s globalists

    The Supreme Court’s nomination process, if nothing else, has proven that the Progressive Democratic Party, under the leadership of New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, is one organized and effective party of the opposition.

  • Rebels tame Mustangs to remain unbeaten

    LAKEWOOD — “Deep” doesn’t even begin to describe the strength of Columbine football.

    After securing a big, 42-13 victory over Mullen at home on Friday night to remain undefeated at 6-0, the third-ranked Rebels (per CHSAANow.com) think they can be even better.
