  • Cougars roll behind second-half...

    CONIFER — Emphasizing possession and pressing forward has always been a staple of Evergreen boys’ soccer. It goes a long way toward victory.

  • Lahr, Cougars have their way...

    Ryan Lahr was picking his spots. If Evergreen’s No. 1 singles player wanted a hard-hitting forehand down the line, he did so. If he wanted to smash a cross-court shot into the back corner, it was there. If he wanted a service ace, there was those as well. 

    It didn’t hurt that his opponent — Wheat Ridge’s Matt Sewell — double-faulted a time or two or was hampered by unforced errors.

    Evergreen sending trio to 4A state tournament
    FRUITA — A season that seemingly couldn’t go wrong hit a snafu Sept. 19 at the 4A Region 4 boys golf tournament at Adobe Creek National Golf Course.

  • Cougars finish second to one

    LITTLETON — On the one hand, Brandon Swenson and Weston Donati-Leach could look at their performances at the 39th annual Liberty Bell and be quite content with it. But then there’s the other hand.

  • Tenney, Cougars win at Indian...

    LAFAYETTE — Mike Kuzava, Evergreen’s boys’ golf coach, could use his fair share of superlatives to describe Bridger Tenney: He’s gifted, be it in academics or athletics. He’s top-notch. 

    On Sept. 7, Tenney was also something else: the best player in the field at Indian Peaks Golf Course.

    Evergreen suffers rare shutout on road at L-P
    MONUMENT — Four years. That’s how long it’s been since the Evergreen Cougars’ football team had been shutout. That all changed Sept. 9 at Lewis-Palmer High School as the Rangers blanked EHS 42-0.

    The defending Class 4A boys’ soccer state champions began the 2016 season right where they left off.

    Evergreen, ranked No. 1 in the CHSAANow.com preseason poll, opened the season Sept. 1 with a dominating 6-0 victory over Palmer at Evergreen High School. Five Cougars found the back of the net in the first 45 minutes.

  • Late field goal saves Evergreen...

    The outcome aside, Rob Molholm’s cardiologist wouldn’t recommend many more games like the 2016 opener for Evergreen’s head football coach.

    On the sideline for the first time since he suffered a heart attack last December, Molholm no doubt suffered palpitations while guiding his mostly inexperienced Cougars to a 23-21 victory over Northridge on Sept. 2 at Evergreen High School.

  • Cates, Lobos knock off Cougars

    Jaden Cates is such an intense player that sometimes Conifer softball coach Carrie Oletski has to remind her sophomore pitcher — one of eight sophomores on this year’s team — to smile from time to time, loosen up but also remember to throw strikes.

    The strikes were hit and miss Aug. 30 at Evergreen High School as Cates scattered eight walks, but she showed enough poise to fan six and allow just five hits as the Lady Lobos, behind an early seven-run cushion, pounded out a 10-4 victory.

  • EHS gymnastics hopes opening...

    LITTLETON ­— The Chatfield Lady Chargers, despite having first-meet jitters and several falls in their season opener Sept. 1 at home against Green Mountain and Evergreen, yielded some impressive performances.

    Chatfield, with its largest team ever – 35 girls, took first place in tri-meet with 167.3 points. Green Mountain took second with 153.6 points, while Evergreen was third at 125.625.
