  • First snowflakes herald the promise of a beautiful winter

    When I was in fifth grade, we were required to learn a poem and present it before our class. The poem I chose to learn and recite was the one printed below.

    The First Snowfall
    The snow had begun in the gloaming,
    And busily all the night
    Had been heaping field and highway
    With a silence deep and white.
    Every pine and fir and hemlock
    Wore ermine too dear for an earl,
    And the poorest twig on the elm tree
    Was ridged inch deep with pearl.
    From sheds new-roofed with Carrara

    The Cougars improved to 8-1 overall, 4-1 in the 3A Metro South heading into their Nov. 4 game against rival Conifer (6-3, 5-0). The winner of that game will lock up the conference championship, an automatic berth in this year’s 16-team 3A football playoffs and a home postseason game next week.

  • Cougars kick off playoffs in style

    There may have been snow pushed off to the side of the field. There was certainly a chill in the air. But Evergreen’s boys soccer team was more than a little warmed up for its 4A state playoff opener on Oct. 27 against Vista Ridge.
    The Cougars, the No. 2 seed in this year’s 32-team tournament, already led by two goals when they exploded for six more scores in the game’s final 33 minutes for an 8-0 rout. Six players scored for Evergreen, including two goals each from Colton Cavey and Jared Cochran.

  • Cougars struggle to hang on

    AURORA — It was the second mile of the 3.1-mile 4A state cross country championship at Arapahoe County Fairgrounds and there was Jackson Sayler out front in the lead. No other runner was in front of the Evergreen junior.
    It was though, unfortunately, just the second mile.
    Sayler, who admitted mentally he gave up, faltered back to a 58th-place finish in 17 minutes, 52.32 seconds in the 187-runner field on Oct. 29.
