  • Rebels rally in extras to seal...

    Korbe Otis is wiser than her years would suggest. The Columbine freshman pitcher plays with the calmness of a seasoned veteran.

    So when she allowed her second two-run homer of the game Saturday — just two outs from victory — she didn’t let it rattle her. Instead, she embraced the opportunity that was presented to her an inning later.

    LAKEWOOD — While every rivalry matchup between Chatfield and Columbine is huge no matter what the sport, Monday’s soccer game at Lakewood Memorial Field held an extra meaning, with both teams celebrating senior night.

    DENVER -- Christian Holmes, the Chatfield Chargers’ No. 1 singles player, is the 5A state boys tennis champion. It’s the first state tennis title at a singles position in school history.
    Holmes started off slowly Saturday morning at the Gates Tennis Center, losing the first set 6-4 to Fairview’s Tom Melville. In the second set, after going down 3-2 early, something clicked for the Chatfield junior. He won the next four games to take the second set 6-3.

    LITTLETON — Chatfield’s volleyball team is more than halfway to its goal of a second straight undefeated roll through the Class 5A Jeffco League.

    The Chargers, ranked No. 6 in the CHSAANow.com 5A volleyball poll, defeated rival Columbine on the Rebels’ home court 3-1 Tuesday night.

  • Chargers, Jaguars preparing for...

    NORTHGLENN — Wind could not stop the D’Evelyn and Chatfield boys from racing well at Friday’s Pat Amato Classic at Northglenn’s Open Spaces Park, but the girls were no match for a nearby thunderstorm, which abruptly ended their competition midway through.

    After the botched race, none of the times for the 12 finishers counted, and most of the group didn’t make it to the end or get to run again. The boys, however, were done just in the nick of time, despite gale-force winds that disrupted their mojo halfway through the contest.

    LAKEWOOD — The presence of McCaffrey brothers didn’t necessarily drive Chad Dines to transfer from Valor Christian. The D’Evelyn senior quarterback said it was the commute that brought him closer to home after two years at the private school in Highlands Ranch, and it’s a move that’s paying off for him and the Jaguars.
