  • Front Range Christian football wins first league title in 15 years

    LITTLETON — Going into Friday night’s game at home, Front Range Christian’s football team had to have the perfect recipe to defeat Justice and win league outright for the first time since 2003.

    Throughout the contest, the Falcons didn’t hold back as they secured a 48-24 beat-down. The move down to 8-man seems to be treating them well.

    LITTLETON — There is good chance the class 5A boys cross country individual and team titles will be won by the Jeffco League in a couple of weeks in Colorado Springs.

    The weather was great during the four varsity races. However, rain and snow during the week left a few damp places on the course. It didn’t make much of a difference for Dakota Ridge’s boys team.

    By Anthony Sandstrom

    PUEBLO — Last season, D’Evelyn was barely on the radar.

    The Jaguars boys tennis program had only qualified one spot to the 4A state tournament, and it was looking like it was miles away from making any sizable dent at that competition.

    What a difference a year makes.

    Last weekend, the Jaguars qualified five positions to state and turned in a ninth-place team showing at this year’s 4A state tennis tournament, held at Pueblo City Park.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Chatfield's Holmes repeats as 5A state boys tennis champion

    DENVER — No injury was going to stop Chatfield’s Christian Holmes from making 5A state tennis history.

    On Saturday morning at the Gates Tennis Center, the defending state champion for No. 1 singles repeated the feat with a 7-5, 7-5 win over Regis Jesuit’s Morgan Schilling in the finals. That made him the first Jeffco player ever to win back-to-back crowns in the highest classification at his position in the Colorado state tournament’s 91-year existence.

  • Morrison walking tour points out local haunts, legends

    Ever walk the streets of Morrison at night and feel like you’re not quite alone?
    That’s probably because you’re not, as local legends and stories say that the ghosts of former Morrison residents frequently spend their days — or nights, rather — visiting their old haunts.
    Joel Chirhart, who runs the Morrison Ghosts & Legends Tour, said that, given the 430-some residents and the numerous buildings in town that are supposedly haunted, he likes to call Morrison the most haunted town per capita.
