PREP NOTEBOOK: Lewis-Palmer hockey to pay tribute to fallen former resident

The Lewis-Palme school district hockey team will pay tribute to Dylan Redwine before Friday's game against Doherty at the Colorado Sports Center.

After a months-long search, Redwine's remains in June 2013 were found near Bayfield. The previous November, the former Lewis-Palmer Middle School student had traveled to see his father on a court-ordered visit during Thanksgiving break.

Redwine was 13.

First-year Rangers coach Hal Jordan said Redwine was considering playing hockey this season as a freshman.

"I'm not big into cutting freshmen, and his future stepfather was a supporter of all the sports at Lewis-Palmer and was big in youth hockey," Jordan said. "Most of the freshmen and sophomores knew Dylan pretty well."

Prior to the national anthem, the four captains, plus a player representing Palmer Ridge, will present a white rose to Dylan's mother, Elaine. The team will also honor Redwine with a ribbon on the back of the team helmets and a banner that will be unveiled behind the team bench.

"It doesn't take long for people to forget," Jordan said. "We want people to remember Dylan. It's the right thing to do."

Palmer Ridge makes annual trek to Kansas basketball tourney

If it's late January, then it must be time for Palmer Ridge's basketball teams to make an out-of-state journey.

For the fourth year in a row, the Bears will travel to Colby, Kan., for this weekend's annual Orange and Black Classic.

"The kids love it, and it gives our athletes a chance to see different things," Bears athletic director Jim Porter said.

"It's why I believe kids should play multiple sports. They learn to adapt and overcome."

Last season, the girls' team won the title, while the boys' team fell in the championship game.
