LITTLETON — Amanda Davis took fifth place overall and Cori Graves won the bars competition as Evergreen won the Columbine Invitational on Sept. 11.

The Cougars scored 163.6 points to top Mountain Range, Lakewood and host Columbine.

Davis took fifth in the floor exercise and seven on the vault en route to her top-five overall finish. Graves, meanwhile, added a fifth-place finish on the balance beam.

Other results for Evergreen included Kelsey Valdez’s second-place finishes on the bars, floor exercise and balance beam, Micala Mitchek fifth place on the bars, seventh on the beam and fourth on the floor exercise, Emily Rivers’ fifth on the floor exercise and seventh on the bars, Natalie Boor’s fourth on the beam and fifth on the bars, Macall Hock’s third on the beam, and Jessica Kroll’s eighth on the vault.



Jensen’s lone goal proves to be enough in Evergreen victory

Danny Jensen scored a first-half goal and that was all Evergreen needed for a 2-1 win over Lewis-Palmer on Sept. 11 at Evergreen High School.

Ethan Lederer made five saves in goal for his first victory of the season.

The Cougars, after a season-opening loss at Mullen, has won two straight and outscored the opposition 5-0 in those two victories.



Cougars’ six-run 3rd inning pushes them past TJ

Evergreen connected for six runs off Thomas Jefferson starting pitcher Lauren Jorgensen in the third inning en route to a 9-3 win on Sept. 10 at Evergreen High School.

The Cougars (6-4) led 1-0 after two innings before blowing things open.

Thomas Jefferson scored three runs between the fourth and fifth innings, with an RBI each from Jorgensen, Sarah Southard and Alli Cornell, but it wouldn’t be nearly enough to catch the Cougars.
