  • Cougars’ miscues prove to be costly

    DENVER — The Evergreen Cougars’ volleyball team had the talent to beat D’Evelyn in their house on Oct. 7, but may have lacked the experience necessary as it fell to the host Jaguars in four sets, 25-16, 19-25, 25-17, 25-23.

    The Cougars, who only play two seniors, had opportunities to win, especially in the fourth set, as they led 20-16. But they let it slip away as the Jaguars won nine of the next 12 points to seal the match.

  • Event highlights Lariat Loop’s artistic inspirations

    For as long as there have been cars trusty enough to chug up the mountains, artists have ventured around the Lariat Loop hoping to capture that elusive sunset reflecting in Bear Creek or the first aspen turning to gold near Buffalo Bill’s grave.

    The Lariat Loop is a 40-mile scenic circle developed in the 1920s to help Coloradans experience the mountains in proximity to Denver. To celebrate the anniversary of the Loop’s designation as a National Scenic Byway, on Oct. 17 the Loop’s Heritage Alliance will host the Lariat Loop Art Bistro.

  • Cougars still sitting atop throne

    The paint was everywhere. Blue on her left side, yellow on her right. Her face, arms and leg were covered. It looked as if Samantha Skold was right out of the movie Braveheart.

    And her teammates even got in the act here and there.

    “I’m a trendsetter. They just follow me,” Skold joked.
