    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.

    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...

    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.

  • ‘Football is a humbling game’

    A few weeks back, the Chatfield football program learned the hard way that history repeats itself when senior quarterback Zack Yanda exited the Greeley West game in the first quarter with a third-degree separation — meaning his right shoulder was visibly sticking out at his AC joint.

    At first, the team thought he would be out for the season. But somehow, some way, he may have a chance at coming back during the playoffs if he strengthens the muscles around his joint.

  • D’Evelyn soccer gets on the...

    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...

    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.

  • Falcons snag Diggers in 3 sets

    EVERGREEN — Oh, what a difference a year can make.

    Throughout much of last season, the Front Range Christian volleyball team struggled to get a win. This year, it’s middle of the pack in a tough Mile High League.

    On Oct. 2 at Clear Creek High School, that monumental improvement on the court shone through as the Falcons downed the Golddiggers in three sets.

    Head coach Jon Moore chalks the Falcons’ newfound strength up to a year of practice, which started just before last season.
