  • Second place ‘awesome’ for Cougars

    THORNTON — Micala Mitchek, sitting around waiting for the scores, wasn’t sure, Kelsey Valdez didn’t believe her team had won, and Evergreen head coach Marnie Bello was just trying to stay calm.

    Strong team performances on the vault, balance beam and uneven bars had the Evergreen Cougars in prime position to reclaim the 4A state gymnastics championship Nov. 6 at Thornton High School. And even a solid, if not spectacular, floor exercise would seemingly be enough.

  • Penalty kicks end Cougars’ season

    ENGLEWOOD — There are tough losses and then there are heartbreakers. Evergreen’s 1-1 (4-3 in penalty kicks) loss to eighth-seeded Broomfield in the 4A state semifinals certainly falls into the latter category.

    It was a game that took so long that even the penalty kicks couldn’t be decided in regulation. But, eventually, the Eagles (14-2-3) came out on top after two extra rounds of PKs.
