  • Civil discourse: a horse is a horse

    As work in the state House of Representatives ground to a halt on the second to last night of the legislative session last week to ensure that no vote would be taken on legislation to create civil unions, I found myself reflecting on the role my hometown of Steamboat Springs played in the debate on same-sex unions way back in 1975.

  • Evergreen’s season over, but future looks bright

    BROOMFIELD — It was just one play. Other than that the Evergreen Lady Cougars, before and after the game, felt they belonged with fourth-seeded Broomfield in the 4A state girls soccer playoffs.
    But that one play — a corner kick from Chaya Ahrens to Kerri Marquardt, who one-timed the ball into the lower right corner of the net — was all the Lady Eagles would need for a 1-0 victory on May 11 at a rain-soaked Elizabeth Kennedy Stadium. Broomfield (13-3-1) stretched its unbeaten streak to eight games.

  • O’Brien, Sayler set pace for Evergreen at leagues

    LAKEWOOD — From the start, Maura O’Brien, Sammy Skold and Erin Dobey took charge of the girls’ 1,600 meters at the 4A Jeffco League championships May 12. The race was never in doubt. Just which one of the three would win proved to be the only drama.
    O’Brien, who led for most of the four-lap event, overcame a late-charging Skold to score the victory in 5 minutes, 16.71 seconds at Jefferson County Stadium. But Skold (5:16.88) and Dobey (5:18.83) weren’t far behind en route to a one-two-three Evergreen finish.

  • Cougars’ Tenney headed to state

    ARVADA — Madison Tenney, for most of the 2012 girls golf season, has been Evergreen’s most consistent player. And while her play was anything but consistent at the 4A Metro West Regional it was enough to qualify her for next week’s 4A state tournament.

  • PAC finally gets over the hump

    GLENDALE — As the seconds winded down May 9 at Infinity Park it was all the PAC Rugby sideline could do to contain its exuberant enthusiasm. After all this had been three years in the making.
    A bridesmaid two years running in the Division II high school state championship game, PAC Rugby, with players from Conifer, Platte Canyon and Evergreen high schools, didn’t want to experience that feeling again. This time it didn’t have to.
