    Players, coaches, students and parents gathered around midfield, some of them with tears in their eyes, after Evergreen’s 42-0 win over Summit on Nov. 2 at Evergreen High School. There wasn’t any confirmation at the time, but many feared this marked the end of the team’s season.

  • Evergreen believes in self to place 2nd

    THORNTON — They are the little team that never thought they could, but the Evergreen Lady Cougars proved to themselves that they most certainly “could” when they placed second with a score of 174.350 just behind rival Elizabeth at the 4A state gymnastics championships Nov. 2-3 at Thornton High School.
    Elizabeth nabbed first with 179.425 points, taking back the state title that Evergreen won a year ago.

  • Cougars bounced on penalty kicks

    Matthew Jackson struggled with his emotions. The Evergreen senior had just watched his Cougars play 110 grueling minutes, including 30 in overtime, and a series of penalty kicks. Jackson took the last of those kicks, having his attempt — the third straight by Evergreen — deflected by Battle Mountain goalkeeper Christian Espinoza.
    The result was sixth-seeded Battle Mountain, behind penalty-kick goals from Erick Broines, Roberto Diaz and Gunnar Wilson, posting a 2-1 4A state quarterfinal victory over the host Cougars at Evergreen High School on Nov. 1.

  • Teen charged with reckless driving in vehicle rollover

    An Evergreen teenager was charged with reckless driving after the vehicle he was driving rolled on Colorado 74 on Sunday night.

    Joseph Nowicki, 17, was driving a 2006 Jeep Wrangler on the southbound frontage road near DeDisse Park when the vehicle went off the right side of the road and out of control, the Colorado State Patrol reported.

    The vehicle spun clockwise on Colorado 74, rolled over and came to rest 200 feet from the road. A 14-year-old male passenger was in the vehicle with Nowicki.

    The Evergreen High School marching band accomplished its best performance in many years, ranking fourth in the state 3A competition recently.

    For the band’s drum majors, the feeling of making the finals and then taking fourth was exhilarating. They said it’s the first time in 60 years that the band made it into the top five.

    “The entire band put everything into that performance,” said drum major Norika Zehnder, “and that’s incredible.”
