  • The man who can do it all:...

    Logan DeArment is the student-athlete who seems like he plays everything at Columbine.

    Whether he’s leading his football team deep into the 5A state playoffs, directing the offense on the basketball court or stopping line drives in the diamond, DeArment has always been an all-around competitor for his Rebel brethren.

  • The musical athlete: Jaguars’...

    She may be small, but D’Evelyn senior Izzy Lopez has become a workhorse with a big heart that her basketball coach, Chris Olson, has come to rely on.

    Lopez serves as the Jaguars’ (7-1 record so far this year) captain, shooting guard and forward as she boons her team as one of its best three-point shooters and rebounders. And, no, it’s not because she has major hops.

  • Rebel boys hoops buckles to HRHS

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — It was a battle until the very end, but the Columbine boys basketball team couldn’t overcome the pressure.

    On Friday at Highlands Ranch High School, the Rebels fell to the Falcons 57-45 following a lackadaisical second half. Despite a rough shooting performance in the late quarters, Columbine never gave up the intensity and effort.

  • Falcons boys falter in...

    LITTLETON — Less than halfway through the 2018-19 high school basketball season, it seems as though the Front Range Christian boys basketball team is still figuring out its identity.

  • Chatfield senior Christian...

    It would seem Chatfield’s Christian Holmes can do it all.

    In the Colorado high school tennis world, everybody who’s anybody knows Holmes from his back-to-back 5A state titles the past two seasons. But that’s not all that’s keeping him busy.

    As a scholar with the Chargers, Holmes has prided himself in his academics throughout the past four years of his high school career. He’s boosted his GPA — which he estimates is somewhere between a 4.0 and a 4.5 — with numerous honors and AP classes.

  • Dakota Ridge boys basketball...

    LAKEWOOD — Jackson Lamb was just the savior Dakota Ridge boys basketball needed.

    Amid a rough second half for the Eagles on Friday, during which Green Mountain came back from a big deficit, Dakota Ridge had to fend off a strong charge from the Rams in the final minutes of the game.

    Thanks to a terrible blunder from Green Mountain and a key free throw from Lamb with just seconds left, the Eagles survived 58-56.

    “We’re just trusting the process and our guys are trying to get better every night,” head coach Sean Kovar said.

  • Columbine hockey stuns the...

    LITTLETON — Going into the third period on Monday afternoon at Edge Ice Arena, Chatfield was sitting pretty. Then Columbine broke through in the final minutes to stun the Chargers 5-4.

    “(The players) kind of said it themselves,” Chatfield coach Geoff Riegle said. “They sat on a lead, and we’re not used to having a lead in a lot of games, so we kind of stopped playing, and it kind of went against us. We’ve just got to play three periods next time.”

    LITTLETON — Dec. 12 served as a girls basketball preview of the Class 5A Jeffco League.

    Valor Christian moved from 4A Jeffco up to the 5A Jeffco this year after winning back-to-back 4A state titles in 2015 and 2016. The Eagles, ranked No. 7 in the latest CHSAANow.com Class 5A girls basketball poll, had a road test at Columbine.

    Valor looked impressive from start to finish, taking a 54-24 victory over the Rebels (1-2 record).

    Jeffco Public Schools

    DENVER — The Conifer boys basketball team raced out to a quick lead on Dec. 13 against its former Class 4A Jeffco League rival and never looked back in a 71-51 win over D’Evelyn.

    The Lobos hits the 20-point mark less than six minutes into the game at D’Evelyn Junior/Senior High School. Junior Elijah Cook’s 3-pointer with 2:24 left in the first quarter pushed Conifer’s lead to 21-4 on the Jaguars’ home court.

    LITTLETON — Front Range Christian’s girls basketball team is trending in the right direction.

    Following a tough 2017-18 season, the Falcons have started the year 5-2 thanks to a recent 33-29 victory over Evangelical Christian on their home court on Saturday. They also defeated Rocky Mountain Lutheran 48-31 on Monday.

    In the Evangelical Christian game, the Falcons dug deep late to stun the Eagles when the momentum seemed to favor the visiting team.
