  • Lobos reclaim the Power Cup

    Fate snuck up on Conifer freshman Sam Delmonico like a polar bear in a blizzard.

    As the annual Power Cup wrestling dual against rival Evergreen began Feb. 4 at the 135-pound weight class, Delmonico knew he would be wrestling last. But the 130-pounder never thought and never allowed himself to entertain the notion that the decisive match would come down to the wire.

    Delmonico pinned Evergreen’s Brandon Maxey in 1 minute, 38 seconds to break a deadlocked team race and give the Lobos a 40-34 victory, winning back the traveling Power Cup for the first time since 2008.

  • Thunderhawks rain down 3’s, stun Cougars

    It might take an architect, motivational speaker and psychologist to figure out the little things that have conspired against the Evergreen Cougars this season.

    The Cougars can build great leads on the court, but sometimes the blocks get pulled out one by one, they stop building and things start wobbling like Jenga on the coffee table.

    While their calmness is often an asset, call it a certain level-headedness amongst the sea of basketball emotions, the fire seems to dwindle and no one has the words to spark the fire.

    Two middle-school boys from Evergreen completed a class assignment by inventing an “app” that anyone can download to iTunes and then sync to an iPhone to play.

    In the Apple version, squares shift with a finger tap and can be shuffled with another tap.
