  • Evergreen completes late-season swoon

    Ask Evergreen girls basketball coach Amy Bahl, and she’ll tell you that the Longmont Lady Trojans were a really good No. 6 seed. Maybe they shouldn’t have been a sixth seed at all considering Longmont did share the 4A Northern League title with Thompson Valley and Silver Creek. Unfortunately, the Lady Cougars found out just how tough Longmont really was.

    The Lady Trojans upset third-seeded Evergreen, 57-51, in the opening round of the Tanya Haave Region of the 4A state tournament on Feb. 27 at the Southwest Motors Event Center.

  • A FEARLESS ADVENTURER

    Taylor Hutchen isn’t like most other 8-year-olds, per se. Sure, like other kids her age, she is more gums than teeth when she smiles, and she’d rather play outside than do homework. But unlike many her age, Taylor is a serendipitous blend of fearless adventurer, who is thoughtful beyond her years, with a full-blown addiction to skiing that transcends the negative effects of being cold or exhausted after a long day of carving fresh powder.

  • Weather, tough slopes slow down Evergreen ski team at state

    Going into the 2014-15 state skiing championships, the Evergreen Cougars had plenty of reasons to believe they were a top-3 team. 

    Even going into the final day of the two-day competition Feb. 19-20 at Keystone, there was hope they would reach that level, but numerous factors, including weather and a difficult course, cost EHS.

  • Lady Cougars struggling with state up next

    By Craig Harper

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen girls basketball coach Amy Bahl isn’t a big fan of the 4A Jeffco League’s cross-division format for the final week of the regular season. 

    Bahl’s Lady Cougars finished second in their division with a 10-3 record prior to the final week, but went 0-2 against the top two teams on the opposite side, including a Feb. 20 season-ending 49-43 loss at second-place Green Mountain.

  • Cougars seal playoff ticket

    WESTMINSTER — It was the kind of atmosphere that Evergreen head boys basketball coach Scott Haebe said that his team can learn to respond from. It was a playoff-like atmosphere Feb. 20 at Standley Lake.

    And maybe it was a playoff game for the Cougars. Finishing no higher than third in their division of the 4A Jeffco League, which included the conference’s top two teams — Golden and Valor Christian — every win down the stretch was much-needed.
