    Elmgreen’s 17 points, seven rebounds paces the Lady Cougars
    GOLDEN
    — Emily Elmgreen had a team-high 17 points and seven rebounds, while Hannah Orr added 11 points as Evergreen won for the seventh time in eight games 50-37 over host Golden on Feb. 13.
    Seven players scored for the Lady Cougars (14-7 overall, 9-3 4A Jeffco League), including seven points from Samantha Kisiel and six from Lauren Troeger.
    Golden, which only trailed 36-33 entering the fourth quarter, dropped to 10-11, 6-6 in league play.

  • Cougars’ best bet denied state bid

    BROOMFIELD — It was a confidence boost that Lane Hanson was hoping to build on. His victory over Valor Christian’s Coby Welch a week earlier at the Pre-Regional Rumble was a first for the 113-pound Evergreen junior. It would take a second, this time in the 4A Region 1 consolation semifinals, for Hanson to make it to the state tournament. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be.

  • Cougars make noise at state

    The Evergreen Cougars might have had a young ski team in 2014, but don’t let that fool you: They’re still pretty good on the slopes. They proved that Feb. 13-14 at the CHSAA state championships at Eldora Mountain Resort in Nederland.

  • Column: EHS swimmers savoring the moment

    FORT COLLINS — It’s been a couple of years in the making, but the Evergreen Lady Cougars finally got over the last hurdle. A team that’s been knocking on the door of a 4A girls swimming state championship since the 2012 meet finally blew the hinges off in 2014.
    In 2012, Evergreen was second, albeit a distant runner-up to repeat champion Thompson Valley. In 2013, the Lady Cougars finished third after a disqualification in the meet-opening 200-yard medley relay denied them of the top honor. In 2014, there was no denying.

  • Lady Cougars win state swimming title

    FORT COLLINS — Head coach Jeanne Godaire didn’t want her team to look too far ahead. But once the Evergreen Lady Cougars qualified for 18 spots in the finals of the 4A state girls swimming championships, it was their title to lose.

    This year, they wouldn’t lose it.

  • Mountain area native competed in Sochi

    Olympic cross-country skier Noah Hoffman has fond memories of playing behind the Hiwan Homestead Museum and at Bergen Meadow Elementary School as a youngster.

    Hoffman, 24, who lived in Indian Hills and then in Evergreen until he was 7, is a member of the U.S. Nordic ski team and is competing in three events in Sochi, Russia. So far, he has placed 35th in the cross-country men’s skiathlon and 31st in the cross-country men’s classic. 

  • ‘Forever Plaid’ takes us back to boy-band era

    If you tuned in for the Super Bowl halftime show, you got an eyeful of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The Chili Peppers, an iconic male quartet from the 1990s and 2000s, are famous for their frenetic on-stage persona and a funk-rock vibe. True fans of the band, however, appreciate their tight vocal harmonies.

  • Unemployment rate hides a sobering reality

    If we simply look at the unemployment rate of 6.7 percent, it would seem that things are getting better, but there is much that lurks beneath the surface of this calculation.
    What this doesn’t take into account is that millions of workers have given up. You may ask why anyone would give up looking for work when a good job is the key to so many positive life outcomes. A good job increases our feeling of self-worth, it pays the rent, and it just enhances the experience of looking into a mirror.
