    EVERGREEN — The Columbine Rebels boys’ swim team trekked up the hill to faceoff against the Conifer Lobos at Wulf Recreation Center on March 22.

But the meet was mutually advantageous because it was designed to allow both schools to advance based off of their particular strengths.

  • Chatfield locks up handful of...

    Elite swimmers can make bagging state qualifying times look as easy as a paddle through the kiddie pool. It’s a feat most aspire to, but even elite swimmers have to claim their first before they can move forward.

    LAKEWOOD — Everybody loses sometimes. It's just a matter of how people deal with it whenever they lose. Dakota Ridge had a tough time accepting its 18-10 loss to Columbine on March 10 at Trailblazer Stadium.
