So it was fitting that her victory in No. 3 doubles sealed the Lady Lobos&rsquo; 4-3 triumph on April 9 at Evergreen High School.<br /> Molleur stays near the front, takes 2nd http://www.canyoncourier.com/content/molleur-stays-near-front-takes-2nd <p> LAKEWOOD &mdash; Maybe Collin Molleur wasn&rsquo;t giving himself enough credit, but the Evergreen sprinter certainly had fun running against Cherokee Trail&rsquo;s Brandon Singleton at the Pomona Invitational on April 12.<br /> &ldquo;I knew that kid on the inside lane was really, really fast. I knew that he was going to go out really fast.

But there was genuine concern as the Cougars had scored just 14 goals in the previous four games, including a 17-0 shutout by Wheat Ridge three days earlier. Half of those goals came against Clear Creek, a second-year varsity program, in the lone win during that stretch.</p> Victory slips out of Evergreen’s grasp http://www.canyoncourier.com/content/victory-slips-out-evergreen%E2%80%99s-grasp <p> Josh Bellatti never felt that Evergreen had the game in hand, and Wheat Ridge made sure that was the case in the seventh inning.</p> <p> The visiting Farmers, three outs away from a sure defeat, sent 10 batters to the plate and rallied to score five times in the final frame for a stunning 7-5 come-from-behind victory at Evergreen High School on April 2.</p> Tenney, Lady Cougars take second at Lake Arbor http://www.canyoncourier.com/content/tenney-lady-cougars-take-second-lake-arbor <p> ARVADA &mdash; Madison Tenney carded an 80 to place second overall, and the Evergreen Lady Cougars finished second in a seven-team 4A Jeffco League match at Lake Arbor Golf Club on April 2.</p> <p> Evergreen, as a team, shot a 378 total &mdash; 28 strokes back of D&rsquo;Evelyn.

It&rsquo;s the lifestyle for these endurance runners.<br /> &ldquo;We&rsquo;re definitely not weekend warriors. Like a lot of people in endurance sports we&rsquo;re competing at a very high level,&rdquo; Macy said. &ldquo;We&rsquo;re both parents, we&rsquo;re teachers. We do many different things.
