  • Cougar, Lobo teams fare well in midseason relays

    LAKEWOOD — The Evergreen girls swimming team is doing its best to show that even in a season of transition, the Cougars remain ultra-competitive.

    Head coach Jeanne Godaire is calling it quits after 12 years leading the program, sharing duties for 2017-18 with co-head coach Liz Hudd.

    It would seem like they have their work cut out to keep Evergreen among the state’s elite in 4A before a drop to 3A next season, but the Cougars are off to a great start, finishing first at their most recent meet.

    At every school, there’s always that student-athlete who perfectly exemplifies the idea of the “student-athlete,” someone who excels at being both in school and in competition. For Conifer, senior Mark Studer checks all the boxes.

    For much of his high school career, Studer has been a stud the court and on the field for the Lobos, as he serves as a guard for the basketball team and as a defensive midfielder in lacrosse. In school, he’s taken more than 15 AP and honors classes during his of high school career and pushes himself when he can.

  • Confident Cougars stay unbeaten in duals

    It’s said that confidence breeds success. The Evergreen High School wrestling program is beaming with that confidence nowadays.

    That hasn’t always been the case in recent years, but with an influx of wrestlers and a trust in themselves, the Cougars are witnessing that success on the mat in 2018. That was evident in the Cougars’ fourth dual victory of the season 51-27 over visiting Denver South on Jan. 3 at Evergreen High School.

    Three years ago, EHS barely had enough wrestlers to keep the program afloat.
