    LAKEWOOD — As then-No. 4 Evergreen and No. 8 D’Evelyn faced off April 25 at Lakewood Memorial Field, it felt very much like a showdown in an old Western movie — who would shoot first and whose shot would hit?

    After 80 minutes of regulation and 2:46 of overtime, the answer was D’Evelyn’s freshman forward Lauren Cook.

    On a breakaway possession, teammate Anna Pampalone found Cook near the top of the 18-yard perimeter, and Cook’s shot soared into the net. D’Evelyn won 1-0.

    LAKEWOOD — The Dakota Ridge girls lacrosse team’s appearance in the quarterfinals of the state tournament a year ago set a precedent for the future.

    LITTLETON — When Kasey Koppelmaa launched a two-run homer over the right field fence in the second inning, it looked like the Chatfield baseball team was going to celebrate senior day with a convincing win over rival Dakota Ridge.

    Koppelmaa’s blast gave the Chargers a 9-2 lead at home, and the Eagles looked like the seventh straight victim for Chatfield.

    ARVADA — Gavin Olson scurried to the starting block, adjusted his cap and dived into the pool without as much as a wasted motion.

    The Columbine junior was, in his own words, “all over the place” prior to the start of Saturday’s 200-yard individual medley finals at George J. Meyers Pool.

    “I was just in the shower. I thought the 500 (freestyle) would take a little bit longer, but I underestimated that a little bit,” the Rebels’ boys swimmer said.

    LITTLETON — A walk-off victory is even sweeter when it comes against your biggest rival.

    “It feels great,” Chatfield senior Kasey Koppelmaa said after the Chargers’ 6-5 victory over their chief baseball rival on Saturday. “Columbine is always a good team. We’ve always had a really good game against them. It’s just unbelievable that we were able to get a great team victory today and climb through the adversity.”
