  • SWARM girls rugby team battles...

    Shoulder surgery to repair a dislocated rotator cuff. A broken nose. Plenty of doubters. And, yet, Lindsay Caprio wouldn’t have it any other way. The 16-year-old Chatfield junior is a rugby player, no doubt about it.

    If you ask Lexie Malazdrewicz what she attributes her success to she’s likely to tell you hard work and a lot of practice. A lot being an understatement. But even that doesn’t quantify the success she achieved at the USA Swimming Sectionals in Mount Hood, Ore., recently.

  • Babies abound during the...

    Summer is in full swing with August weather starting in July.

    As the weathermen have been saying, the monsoon winds are bringing warm and wet air up from the Gulf Coast, which is bringing us rain when it bumps into our cool mountains. This usually occurs in August, but this year two near tropical storms brought some similar weather in July, so we have had unusually hot and humid weather, very unlike the hot dry weather we are used to.

  • Cordilleran flycatchers have...

    Although spring migration has long been over, we had a bit of excitement in the yard this week.

    The house wrens have long been nesting in a swallow box on the supporting post of the front porch. In fact, they are feeding young. Although it is supposed to be a swallow box, the swallows have never had a chance to use it because the wrens arrive earlier and have already taken it over. They usually have eggs in the box by the time the violet-green swallows arrive. That was the case this year.

  • Cougars wake up to win before...

    Jake Murphy was at the ball field by 6:30 a.m. on July 23 for an 8 o’clock game. The Evergreen left-hander said that the early start time makes him feel refreshed and awake. It helps him to pitch a lot better, he said.

    No kidding.

  • A lifetime ago, Danny Alkayam...

    There are the scrapbook full of photos, the newspaper clippings and a tournament-winning trophy for his play in the 1975 U.S. Cup sitting in his office. All are reminders for Danny Alkayam from what seems like a lifetime ago.

  • Parents should keep eye on heat

    Chatfield’s summer baseball team played its home game versus Wheat Ridge on July 16 at 10 a.m. Columbine and Evergreen started shortly before 11 a.m. two days later. And the Chargers were hoping to move up a scheduled 3 p.m. start with Arvada West on July 18.

    LITTLETON — Down to their last out, it took the Evergreen Cougars three pitches to turn a sure defeat into an improbable victory July 18 at Columbine High School.
