    SHERIDAN — Connor Peterson was in position to switch the advantage when his left shoulder popped out. For a brief moment, it looked as if the Platte Canyon senior’s chances of winning the 3A/2A Frontier League wrestling championship on Feb. 4 at Sheridan High School had gone by the wayside.

  • Evergreen posts runner-up finish in 4A Jeffco

    Connor Williams only had to win one match Feb. 2 at Evergreen High School to capture the 4A Jeffco League championship, and the 106-pound senior was pretty confident going into the finals that he could do that.

  • Lobos catcher Ness signs on with Trinity International

    For Mark Ness, deciding where he’ll spend the next four years in college ahead of the Conifer Lobos’ 2017 spring baseball season lifted a weight off the broad shoulders of the 6-foot-2, 220-pounder.

    “It’s huge,” he said. “The coach still wants me to play as hard as I can, which I will, of course.”

    Ness, a Conifer High senior, signed a letter of intent Feb. 6 to play collegiate baseball for Trinity International University in Deerfield, Ill.

    In all, Evergreen High School honored seven student-athletes — Hoerman (volleyball), Weiner (soccer), Alex Rupe (football), Ben Setlak (baseball), Brandon Swenson (cross country and track), Ryan Wilson (soccer) and Griffin Dorsey (soccer) — on National Signing Day on Feb. 1.

    Where does an Evergreen couple go after winning more than a half-million dollars on a television game show?

    To Pizza Hut, of course.

    Shana and Mike Gustafson won $529,921 on the new NBC game show “The Wall.” After the taping, which took five hours, they were exhausted.
