    By Levi Waddell

    In a back-and-forth dual, the Bear Creek Bears wrestling team edged out its league rival, the Chatfield Chargers, 42-40 on Tuesday, Jan. 9.

    Despite their inexperience as a whole, the Chargers had a relatively good showing.

    “We have a pretty young team. We have two seniors on the squad out of the 14 slots, and I think for how young we are we’re doing really good. We’re progressing really fast and a lot of our kids are growing up,” said E.C. Manzanares, one of two seniors and a state qualifier last season.

  • All around, in every way

    It seems as though Dakota Ridge senior Skylar Lodice can do it all.

    Whether she’s on the court, on the track, on the course or serving as the student body president, she’s constantly working to better not only herself but the community.

    For the past four years, Lodice has represented the Eagles through cross country, basketball and track on the athletic side of the spectrum. Because each sport is a different season, she’s been able to balance her year.

    EVERGREEN — The Evergreen boys’ basketball team knows how to start off league play right.

    Following a win against Standley Lake and a 61-55 victory over visiting D’Evelyn on Saturday afternoon, the Cougars now sit at 2-0 in league play (9-2 overall) and show no signs of slowing down. The Jaguars, however, have struggled in Jeffco play with two tough losses to start out the new year (4-6).

    LITTLETON — A post-holiday slump despite going 2-0 in the first week of January?

    That’s what Dakota Ridge senior forward Jonathan Tanji thought might be the case after his third-period goal lifted the Eagles hockey team to a hard-fought 2-1 non-conference victory over rival Columbine.

    LITTLETON — Led by senior Cole Binder’s career-high 26 points, the Dakota Ridge boys basketball team took down the Columbine Rebels at home in front of a packed house on Jan. 4, 72-64. The Rebels, who put up a good fight, were ultimately unable to stop the Eagles’ 3-point barrage and struggled to hold onto the ball.

    LITTLETON — The Columbine High School girls’ basketball team defeated the Rock Canyon Jaguars on Dec. 19 at Columbine High School 56-27, improving the Rebels to 7-1 in nonleague play and keeping the girls undefeated at home this year.

    Despite strong ball movement and a plethora of strikes at the basket, the shots simply weren’t falling for the Front Range Christian girls basketball team on Dec. 20 against the SkyView Academy Hawks. The Falcons ultimately came up short against the Hawks, 40-15.

    Falcons head coach Dave Hiltman feels the wins will come with time, as his young team is still finding its identity as the season progresses.

    By Seth Davis Kahn

    The Dakota Ridge girls basketball team improved to 6-4 on Dec. 20 after defeating the Lightning of Legacy High School in overtime, 73-69. The win came in not only the Eagles’ final game before break, but it was also their last non-conference game.

    The Eagles started off strong, jumping out to a 6-0 lead within the first four minutes of the game. Led by four points apiece from junior Sydney Daniels, senior Skylar Lodice and junior Maggie Hawley, the Eagles jumped out to a six-point, 21-16 lead.

    LITTLETON — Throw out the records in rivalry games? The Columbine and Chatfield hockey teams seemed more bent on disposing of last season’s win-loss records — a combined 5-31-2 — when they squared off for the only time in 2017-18.

    Heading into the non-conference matchup at Edge Ice Arena on Friday, both clubs seemed to be on the road toward respectability, having matched their victory total two weeks into the campaign.
