  • Pulling in the barrel

     Dressed in bright red wetsuits, Evergreen firefighters Rob Dodge and Dave Skerda ventured over thin ice to retrieve the Mountain Foothills Rotary Club's ice-melt barrel on Evergreen Lake last Thursday afternoon. 

     

    The barrel's platform was frozen into the ice, making its recovery more difficult than Dodge and Skerda had anticipated. After hacking away for a while, they loosened the large blue cylinder and hauled it to the edge of the lake, with help from others pulling an attached rope.

  • Goal better late than never for Evergreen

    LAKEWOOD — Zoe Peterson knew how important the goal would be.
    After all, the Evergreen Lady Cougars were just 2-3, but a win over D’Evelyn on April 5 at Lakewood Memorial Field would do more than bring her team back to .500. It hopefully would go a long way in determining the pecking order in the 4A Jeffco League.

    Hardy, though, survived the two set points and came back to win the tiebreak 9-7, securing her match 6-2, 7-6 over Conifer’s Kirstin Hafeman in the No. 1 singles battle. The win helped propel the Lady Cougars to the team victory over host Conifer by a score of 6-1 on April 4.
