    By Dennis Pleuss

    LITTLETON — Columbine’s girls basketball team accomplished one big goal it had entering this season.

    The No. 20-seeded Rebels managed the program’s first playoff victory since 2010 with a 41-37 victory Tuesday night against No. 45 Eaglecrest.

    “It’s been like eight years since we’ve won a playoff game,” Columbine junior Maura Singer said. “It’s definitely super nice.”

    FORT COLLINS — Good luck wiping the smile off Kathryn Shanley’s face.

    The swimmer instantly forgot about exhaustion when she looked up at the timing board after finishing the 500-yard freestyle Saturday afternoon.

    Lane 5, first place.

    The Chatfield High School freshman burst into a big grin as she realized she had just become a state champion in her first state meet after winning the 500 free in a time of 5 minutes, 2.44 seconds at Edora Pool Ice Center.

    LITTLETON — From the University of Alaska to the University of Hawaii and beyond, Jeffco student-athletes will fan out to all corners of the United States  to pursue their college dreams in the next school year.

    Feb. 7 marked another National Letter of Intent Signing Day. A dozen high schools within Jeffco Public Schools had signing celebrations on Wednesday.

    “It’s always a special day,” Columbine principal Scott Christy said during the Rebels’ celebration.

    Dakota Ridge High School is taking the reins of Jefferson County field hockey.

    At the Class 5A Region 3 tournament on Saturday at Poudre High School, Columbine and Chatfield earned a few spots at state.

    Smaller teams such as Chatfield and Columbine were looking to qualify as many wrestlers as they could as an overall team title was out of reach early in the day, with Poudre running away with the team victory.

    The best chance for Chatfield came from senior Earl Cameron Manzanares, who easily advanced to the semifinals with a pin and a major victory by a score of 10-1.

  • D'Evelyn senior Selin wins...

    THORNTON — Over the last couple years, the weeks leading up to the state swim meet haven’t been kind to D’Evelyn High School’s Abbey Selin.
    But none of that seemed to matter on Friday at the Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center, as a flu earlier in the week couldn’t stop the senior standout from going for the gold in the 3A state meet. In the end, she took home the titles for the 200-yard and 500-yard freestyle events.

  • Chargers, Rebels and Eagles...

     

    ARVADA — Kathryn Shanley wasn’t expecting to win the 200-yard freestyle at the 5A Jeffco League girls swimming championships, but she ended up doing so anyway. And that was just the start.

    The Chatfield freshman followed that up with wins in the 500 freestyle, 200 free relay and 400 free relay to help the Chargers to a second-place finish Friday at George J. Meyers Pool.

    By Levi Waddell

    ARVADA — The D’Evelyn girls swimming and diving team had a strong outing at the 4A Jeffco League championships, finishing in fourth place with 233 points.

    With the season coming to a close, the Jaguars look to fine-tune everything as the state finals approach.

    Abbey Selin had the strongest showing for the Jaguars, finishing first in both the 200-yard freestyle and 500-yard freestyle. Selin also took home the Jeffco League Swimmer of the Year award and was surprised, to say the least.

  • D’Evelyn hoops falls to...

    By Michael Kelly

    DENVER — The D’Evelyn Jaguars were right there with the ninth-ranked Evergreen Cougars on Jan. 31 when, with 1:08 left in the first quarter, the Jaguars boys basketball team tied the game on two free throws by Charles Dinegar.

    But then Evergreen’s defense got tough, holding D’Evelyn to four points over the next 7:51, grabbing a nine-point lead and never relinquished it in a 68-56 win at D’Evelyn High School.

  • After season, Rebel wrestlers...

    LITTLETON — Ted Mullin was the perfect younger brother last season when, as a junior for Columbine, he agreed to wrestle up a weight so senior sibling Tim could compete in the 182-pound weight classification.

    Ironically, the younger Mullin fared better. Ted qualified for his first 5A state tournament at 195, while Tim couldn’t duplicate that feat as a state qualifier.
