WHEAT RIDGE — Keeping within reach of the 4A Jeffco League baseball leaders was the task for Evergreen and Wheat Ridge on Saturday.

While the conference schedule is only about a third of the way done, the Cougars and Farmers can’t afford to fall too far behind league-leading and defending 4A state champion Valor Christian (9-3, 3-0 in league).
