  • Janson, Lady Lobos serve up a win at EHS

    From time to time, there is a striking dichotomy among opponents, be it differences in physical strength or size. In the case of the No. 1 singles match between Conifer and Evergreen, it was age and skill-level making the game even more exciting to watch.

    Usually, the No. 1 singles position for a varsity tennis team goes to a senior who has played for four years, assuming greater maturity and prowess after playing that long. But Conifer freshman Hailey Janson has turned that notion on its head.

  • Lobos’ early attack stymies Cougars

    CONIFER — From the moment Stone Henderson blew past the Evergreen defense for the game’s first goal to his last, the Conifer Lobos unleashed a smooth, transition attack that has been its bread and butter in 2015. The end result was Conifer’s third straight victory over its archrival, this time 10-6, at Lobo Field on April 8.

  • Peterson’s lone goal enough for EHS

    At first glance, Evergreen’s 1-0 girls soccer win over Conifer on April 9 was a bit disappointing for the Lady Cougars. 

    The second-ranked team in 4A probably should’ve won by more at Evergreen High School considering how much pressure it put on the Lady Lobos’ net. But the end result was still the same — a win.

  • BUSINESS BEAT: High Country Pizza is all about the pie

    It’s a good thing the owners of the new pizzeria in Kittredge really like pizza.

    They say they eat pizza all the time, mostly at their Colorado High Country Pizza restaurant, but sometimes when co-owner Steve Abbott goes home after a long day of throwing pizza dough, slathering on sauce, sprinkling the cheese and adding the toppings, he orders out pizza.

    Now that’s pizza dedication.

  • Mountain Area Earth Day Fair promises eco-friendly fun for all

    A day to celebrate Earth and its creatures is approaching, as the 26th annual Mountain Area Earth Day Fair will be held Saturday at the Evergreen Lake House.

    “This free family event is a great kickoff to spring and the renewal of our commitment to our communities and the planet,” said Betsy Kelson, organizer of the fair.

  • Highway 74 near Evergreen Lake remains closed during stabilization work

    Highway 74 from Upper Bear Creek Road to Highway 73 remains closed while workers stabilize a stretch of pavement that is at risk of collapsing. The operation will take six to seven days, and possibly longer, said Jim Pokorny of GoodLand Construction, contractor for the project.

    “At this time we anticipate Highway 74 will be closed until Tuesday, April 21, depending on weather — or the difficulty of the operation,” Pokorny said.

  • Winter sports: 4A Jeffco all-conference basketball teams

    The following are the 4A Jeffco League all-conference boys and girls basketball teams for the 2014-15 season:

    4A JEFFCO BOYS BASKETBALL
    FIRST TEAM
    Oscar Morales, Arvada; Dustin Morrison, Conifer; Grant Witherspoon, D’Evelyn; Nathan Haas, Evergreen; Ryan Thistlewood, Golden; Ryan Blodgett, Golden; Connor Durant, Standley Lake; Khameron Davis, Valor Christian; Jalen Sanders, Valor Christian; Vedin Kozic, Wheat Ridge

  • Cougars record four state qualifying times at event

    LITTLETON — The teams, like the bodies that make them up, were extremely lean at the Jeffco tri-meet April 3 at The Ridge Rec Center as Columbine, Evergreen and Lakewood high schools boys’ swim teams fought through missing swimmers to gain points and nab state qualifying times.

  • Holley, Evergreen show no rust at Broadlands

    BROOMFIELD — Considering it had been two weeks between 4A Jeffco League golf tournaments, thanks to spring break, Evergreen sophomore Natalie Holley probably was happy to shoot an 86 on April 1 at Broadlands Golf Course. 

    Head coach Mike Kuzava had no qualms over her performance, especially after the returning 4A state qualifier made up eight strokes on the back nine.

  • Moens tosses gem at Coors Field

    DENVER — Alec Moens, technically, is the Evergreen Cougars’ closer, not a starter. But with first-year head coach Steve Jones electing to honor his seniors April 1 at Coors Field, the senior right-hander got the starting nod.

    Now, it’s not like Moens had never started before. He had, including a 7-3 win over 4A Jeffco rival and eventual state champion Green Mountain last season.
