  • Cougars ousted in district semifinals

    DENVER — The basic formula of volleyball is bump, set, spike. But when you get to the district tournament, as the Evergreen High School girls’ volleyball team did, the formula gets a little more complicated.

    The Cougars (11-10) were eliminated from the 4A District 4 tournament on Oct. 30 by the Mullen Mustangs at Denver South High School. Mullen advanced to the Region B tournament at Thompson Valley High School on Nov. 6. 

  • PLAYOFF-CLINCHING CATCH

    CONIFER — Not the crowd noise, the Fox Sports Net Rocky Mountain TV cameras or less than 30 seconds that remained on the clock. Nothing. As Kevin Cassell put it, he literally didn’t think about anything.

    He couldn’t other than making the catch.

  • Lesson Plans: Painter teaches Wilmot kids all the right moves

    Painting is like a game of chess, because there are a lot of steps before you get to the end, the Wilmot Elementary School artist-in-residence told fourth-graders recently.
    Some steps are simple, but some are complex, and if you pay attention, the painting will tell you what it needs, painter Virginia Unseld told them.

  • 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.
