  • Postseason pressure was on Cougars, Lobos

    Evergreen head coach Rob Molholm knew his team needed it. Quarterback Noah Ansley knew it, too. Shoot, everybody in Evergreen pretty much knew it.
    The Cougars had to beat rival Conifer. Not just for bragging rights. Not just for the 3A Metro South conference championship. But also to reach the state playoffs for just the seventh time ever.

  • Cougars hold on late vs. Lobos

    Noah Ansley, because of Evergreen’s proficient running game, is just as likely to hurt an opposing defense with his feet as the Evergreen quarterback can do with his arm. Never was that more true than on Nov. 4.

  • Late goal sends Cougars to state finals

    ENGLEWOOD — Ethan Jackson felt like the Evergreen Cougars, which they’ve become accustomed to, had great possession of the ball and deserved to win their 4A boys soccer state semifinal game with Niwot on Nov. 5 at Englewood High School. Whether or not they would though depended on if someone, anyone, would catch the one break they needed.
    Jackson caught it.

  • Blaze destroys home above Kittredge

    An intense and fast-moving fire destroyed a home Monday afternoon at Meadow View Drive and Pine Valley Drive in Kittredge.

    The cause had not been determined by press time.

    The blaze broke out about 1:30 p.m., and 28 firefighters from Evergreen Fire/Rescue responded, along with wildland firefighters who extinguished flames as the fire jumped to nearby trees.

    The flames were doused by 2 p.m., but the home was a total loss. Some outbuildings were saved.

    ENGLEWOOD -- Ethan Jackson punched home the game's lone goal left-footed from 25 yards out in the 70th minute and Evergreen advanced to the 4A boys soccer state championship game with a 1-0 win over Niwot on Nov. 5 at Englewood High School.
    The second-seeded Cougars (17-2) will play fourth-seeded Mullen (12-5-2), a 2-1 winner over top-seeded Broomfield, in the state finals on Nov. 9 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. Evergreen beat Mullen 1-0 in the teams' regular-season meeting.

  • Evergreen captures 4A state gymnastics championship

    THORNTON -- Evergreen, behind first-place team finishes in the vault, uneven bars and floor exercise, captured its second 4A state gymnastics title and first since 2008 on Nov. 5 at Thornton High School.
    The Lady Cougars scored a school-record 182 points, easily topping two-time state champion Elizabeth, which finished with 180.875 points. Thompson Valley came in a distant third with 170.1.

  • Mountain Bowl: Late TD gives Evergreen win over Conifer, conference title

    Evergreen quarterback Noah Ansley scrambled in from six yards out with 5 minutes, 39 seconds remaining in a defensive struggle, and the Cougars stopped Conifer quarterback Thomas Kim on 4th-and-goal from the 9 with 6.4 seconds left for a 13-9 victory in the Mountain Bowl on Nov. 4 at Evergreen High School.
    The win not only gave Evergreen (9-1) the 3A Metro South conference title, but also clinched a first-round home playoff game next week. The Colorado High School Activities Association will release first-round playoff pairings on Nov. 6.

  • Neville selected to fill vacant state Senate seat

    A Republican vacancy committee on Nov. 3 appointed South Jeffco resident Tim Neville to succeed state Sen. Mike Kopp, who announced his resignation from District 22 last month.

    Under new reapportionment boundaries, Evergreen will be moving into District 22.

    Neville, who was vying for the seat along with current House District 28 Rep. Jim Kerr, won by only two votes. Among the 118 votes cast in the Ken Caryl Ranch House by the district’s Republican central committee, 60 voted for Neville and 58 voted for Kerr.

  • For Evergreen native, art is about life

    Art and dance have always been a part of Sarah Wallace Scott’s life. The Evergreen native grew up studying ballet and theater but ultimately found her life’s work in visual art. It is no surprise that this emerging artist leapt at the chance to erase the boundaries between visual and performing art. Her work will be featured this month in a unique collaboration between the resident artists of Denver’s Redline Gallery and Ballet Nouveau Colorado.

  • Evergreen reaches 4A state soccer semifinals for second straight season

    The possession game is Evergreen's bread and butter. If the Cougars control the ball and the clock more times than not they're going to win. Early on against Battle Mountain in the 4A boys soccer state quarterfinals on Nov. 1, Evergreen didn't possess the ball as much as it normally does.
    Even so, the Cougars still managed to score in the game's first three minutes thanks to Scott Boland and once they found their offensive rhythm Sam Hamilton scored twice en route to a 3-1 win over Battle Mountain at Evergreen High School.
