  • Columbine brings the pain...

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — For years, Columbine football has been a dominant force to be reckoned with.
    This year is no different.
    At Highlands Ranch on Friday night, the third-ranked Rebels, per CHSAANow.com, came out firing on all cylinders as they downed the Falcons, 41-16, to advance to 4-0 on the season.

  • Chargers gain experience in...

    The only thing hotter than the 90-degree temperatures at Jeffco Stadium on Friday was the play of No. 10 Fruita Monument’s offense.  
    The Wildcats scored 17 points in the first half and on three of four possessions in the second half to defeat No. 3 Chatfield 38-27.
    With the setback, the Chargers dropped to No. 7 as Fruita Monument rose to No. 6.
    It was the first loss for Chatfield; it also marked the third consecutive game the Chargers had given up 30 or more points. The defense has only one returning starter from last season.

  • D’Evelyn digs out of a hole in...

    WESTMINSTER — D’Evelyn volleyball has had a rough go in its first few games of the season but, in comeback fashion, it was able to take the match at Standley Lake on Monday.
    In a contentious first set, one that saw 11 ties, the Jaguars couldn’t quite get a handle on their digs or their passing, but they still fought tooth and nail until the very end. They eventually fell, 26-24.
    From there on out, they cleaned up their back line defense and shut the Gators down, sweeping the next three sets to win out, 3-1.

  • Rock Canyon optimizes offense...

    LITTLETON — Sometimes it pours when it rains, and that’s exactly what happened to Columbine softball on its home field on Saturday, although no one sitting in the 90-degree weather may have guessed it.
    Going in, the No. 9 Rebels knew they would face an uphill battle against No. 8 Rock Canyon, especially with two key players unable to compete. That, and a slew of defensive mishaps throughout the entire game, doomed Columbine in its 17-5 loss.

  • D’Evelyn takes second at...

    LITTLETON — D’Evelyn tennis has been on a roll this season.
    At the Littleton Invitational on Friday at Littleton High School and Gallup Park, the Jaguars took second in a tournament with eight teams with a score of 33. Mountain Vista won with 41 points.

    LAKEWOOD — Chatfield senior Connor Vernon ended his scoring drought in a big way Sept. 4 at Lakewood Memorial Field.

    The Chargers’ senior striker had a hat trick in the opening half in the boys soccer non-league game at Lakewood Memorial Field. Vernon hadn’t scored for Chatfield (3-0 record) yet this season.

  • Turnovers doom D’Evelyn in...

    By Dennis Pleuss

    LAKEWOOD — Eaton’s offense really didn’t need to be on the football field on Saturday at Trailblazer Stadium.

    The Fightin’ Reds, ranked No. 9 in the CHSAANow.com Class 2A football poll, scored three defensive touchdowns and forced two other turnovers that allowed Eaton to start eventual touchdown drives inside D’Evelyn’s 20-yard line.

  • Chatfield gymnastics takes...

    LITTLETON — Coming off a strong year, a much-younger Chatfield gymnastics team is looking to repeat.

    On Saturday at Columbine’s 10-team meet, it made great strides in proving that it might.

    In taking second as a team with an overall score of 164.575, the Chargers dominated most of the competition, save Pomona, who won with a 179.750.

  • Front Range Christian golfer...

    ARVADA — The Front Range Falcons might have a tiny golf team, but that doesn’t stop them from excelling at what they do.

    Still, that doesn’t mean they don’t face their fair share of struggles.

    On Thursday at the Indian Tree Golf Course, junior phenom Breck Ferrin finished ninth overall in a competitive 3A Metro League tournament, shooting just 6-over par (76). His only teammate, senior Davis Stewart, could not finish due to a wrist injury and only completed 10 holes.

  • Front Range Christian fumbles in...

    LITTLETON — When it comes to 2A and 8-man, Vail Christian has always been a formidable opponent for Front Range Christian. This year was no different.
    On Saturday on their own home turf, the Falcons played a tale of two halves, staging a massive comeback in the second. It wasn’t enough, however, as they fell to the Saints 34-22.
