It took a while for the Evergreen senior, who played at No. 2 singles last year, to find a comfort zone at No. 1 singles in the Cougars&rsquo; season opener Aug. 21 against D&rsquo;Evelyn. By the time he found it, however, it was too little too late, at least this time around.</p> <p> Camp had his serve broken four times and he committed 11 double faults in a 6-2, 6-4 loss to Tom Hudson in Evergreen&rsquo;s 7-0 rain-delayed loss to the Jaguars at the Wulf Recreation Center tennis courts.</p> Kay, host Lady Cougars pick off Boulder http://www.canyoncourier.com/content/kay-host-lady-cougars-pick-boulder <p> <strong>By Craig Harper<br /> </strong><strong><em>For the Courier</em></strong></p> <p> Evergreen&rsquo;s top returning hitter Sarah Kay didn&rsquo;t have her typical big offensive game in the Aug. 22 season opener. But the fourth-year starting catcher impacted the game early in a big way with her arm and instincts behind the plate.</p> <p> Kay kept Boulder, playing its fifth game in eight days, off the scoreboard in the top of the first inning by picking off its first two batters at third base.</p> 2014 Evergreen cross country capsule preview http://www.canyoncourier.com/content/2014-evergreen-cross-country-capsule-preview <p> <strong>EVERGREEN COUGARS<br /> </strong><strong>Head coaches: </strong>Rob Wright, Angie Harrington<br /> <strong>Assistant coaches:</strong> Dorothy Khreis, Roy Grosbach, Paul Williams, Jill Mills<br /> <strong>Conference: </strong>4A Jeffco<br /> 2014 Evergreen boys soccer capsule preview http://www.canyoncourier.com/content/2014-evergreen-boys-soccer-capsule-preview <p> <strong>EVERGREEN COUGARS</strong><strong><br /> <strong>Head coach: </strong></strong>Ross Fowler<br /> <strong>Assistant coach: </strong>George Hunt IV<strong><br /> Classification:</strong>4A Jeffco<br /> <strong>2013 record: </strong>15-3-1, 5-1-1 4A Jeffco<br /> <strong>Players to watch: </strong>Hayden Cogswell, Jr., Center/Midfield; Adriano Borso, Jr., Center/Midfield; Patrick O&rsquo;Neil, Soph., Center/Back; Adam Babb, Soph., Forward<br /> <strong>Season opener:</strong> Aug. 28, at Air Academy, 6:30 p.m.<br /> Sports briefs http://www.canyoncourier.com/content/sports-briefs-51 <p> <strong>BASEBALL<br /> </strong><strong>Evergreen High hosting&nbsp;</strong><strong>Labor Day weekend tourney<br /> </strong>The Evergreen High School baseball team will host a Labor Day weekend tournament in the Colorado Fall Baseball League.<br /> The tournament will feature multiple teams playing Aug. 30-Sept. 1.<br /> Evergreen High opens play on Aug. 30 at 9 a.m. against Under Armour.
