  • Wickham’s pitching, early runs carry Cougars

    BOULDER — Ragan Wickham wouldn’t take the credit for her pitching. As the Evergreen senior said, it’s not on her as much as it’s the defense that is backing her up. But, rest assured, the hard-throwing right-hander had just as much to do with the Lady Cougars’ success at the Boulder CreekSide Classic as the defense behind her did.
    Wickham allowed just three runs over 19 innings, including two on five hits in the Aug. 31 finals. Three first-inning runs in the round-robin finals held up in Evergreen’s 3-2 victory over 5A Boulder.

    As a teacher of visually impaired students at Heritage High School in Littleton, Knight said she has had many memorable experiences. However, working with students in a remote African village has been incredibly rewarding, she said.

  • Park board hears complaints about traffic, parking problems near lake

    Lakepoint Center owner John Watson voiced his frustration over traffic congestion at Evergreen Lake during the Evergreen Park and Recreation District board meeting on Aug. 27.

    "The lake traffic has taken away from our businesses," Watson said. "The Lake House is asking us to absorb overflow."
