  • Pair of free kicks set back...

    LAKEWOOD — Opportunities were few and far between for the Evergreen Lady Cougars. That, and Wheat Ridge’s capability to make the most of two set pieces as opposed to one for Evergreen was the difference in a 2-1 Lady Farmers victory April 18 at Lakewood Memorial Field.
    “We have to defend them better. We got one, and usually you hope that carries the day, but we gave up two set pieces,” Evergreen head coach Peter Jeans said. “That’s the difference. Oh well.”

  • Cougars get it done vs. Bulldogs

    Legendary performer Elvis Presley gave his entourage TCB jewelry as a symbol of taking care of  business whenever they were out on tour in the 1970s. Evergreen baseball coach Dale Hutchings must have been inspired by the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. He instills the same attitude among his players this season.

  • Eight Evergreen High student-...

    Evergreen head football coach Rob Molholm has never had a Division-I football player before now, but this one is not your typical on-the-field prospect.
    For three years, Shelly Brobst has served as a team manager for the Cougars. On April 16, she was one of eight student-athletes to sign a letter of intent during a ceremony at Evergreen High School as she’ll be attending Colorado State University in the fall and working with the Rams’ football program.
    So is Brobst’s signing somewhat atypical of the usual student-athlete signings?

  • Conifer duo, penalties lift Lobos

    Drew Williams and Stone Henderson make for quite the one-two punch. Evergreen found that out the hard way on April 10 at Evergreen High School.

  • Experience pays off for Conifer

    Maddie Yerks was the lone returning Conifer player who tasted victory in last year’s tennis dual meet with Evergreen, participating in a doubles win late in the Lady Cougars’ 6-1 romp. So it was fitting that her victory in No. 3 doubles sealed the Lady Lobos’ 4-3 triumph on April 9 at Evergreen High School.

  • Molleur stays near the front,...

    LAKEWOOD — Maybe Collin Molleur wasn’t giving himself enough credit, but the Evergreen sprinter certainly had fun running against Cherokee Trail’s Brandon Singleton at the Pomona Invitational on April 12.
    “I knew that kid on the inside lane was really, really fast. I knew that he was going to go out really fast. I just tried staying with him, and it got me into second,” Molleur said.

  • Cougars fire on all cylinders in...

    Cancel the MIA alert for Evergreen’s offense.

    First-year boys lacrosse coach Toby Gerard wasn’t in panic mode prior to the home April 5 non-league matchup with Air Academy. 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.

  • Victory slips out of Evergreen’s...

    Josh Bellatti never felt that Evergreen had the game in hand, and Wheat Ridge made sure that was the case in the seventh inning.

    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.
