  • Rebels’ Olson hustles for Jeffco...

    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.”

  • Falcons’ soccer ready to take on...

    his season so far has not been kind to the Front Range Christian girls soccer team, but it’s hoping it’s about to get a whole lot better.

    LAKEWOOD — When Cherry Creek boys lacrosse comes to town, especially for a top-three matchup, an exciting game usually follows.
    After a bit of a setback in the first half last April 14 at Trailblazer Stadium, No. 3 Columbine brought its A-game in the second half against the second-ranked Bruins and almost overcame them. But in the end, it wasn’t enough as the Rebels fell for the first time this season, 11-9.
