    LAKEWOOD — Despite breaking the school record in the boys 4x800 relay for the second time in as many weeks, Evergreen’s top relay team wasn’t all smiles leaving the track May 19 at Jeffco Stadium.

     “We were a little bummed out,” said Evergreen junior Brandon Swenson, who ran the third leg of the relay. “This is the one we wanted.”

    THORNTON — The pool part of swimming meets seems to be coming naturally to Joshua Gauvain. 

    It’s the post-race acknowledgement that is taking some getting used to.

    ARVADA — At 6-foot-2 and maybe 140 pounds, Joshua Gauvain looks like he’d be more at home shooting a basketball than diving into a swimming pool.

    “I’m a pretty scrawny guy,” the Evergreen sophomore said during a break at the Jeffco League Boys Swimming Championships on May 14.

  • RPI needs tweaking

    Life just isn’t fair sometimes. The same can be said about sports.

    Evergreen’s baseball team finished with a 12-6 record, a second-place finish in the Class 4A Jeffco League with a 7-2 mark. Still, somehow, the Cougars didn’t make the 32-team district field for the postseason.

    Six teams with sub-.500 records did make the 4A postseason field. Say what? How could this happen?

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — To beat a great team twice is always a tall task, let alone on the road both times.

    However, Evergreen’s girls soccer team did everything in its power to pull off that mission May 14 at Valor Stadium in Highlands Ranch. The Cougars defeated Valor 3-2 on the Eagles’ home turf April 28 to propel Evergreen during an impressive home stretch of the regular season that included a tie against Class 4A Jeffco League champion Wheat Ridge.

    LAKEWOOD — No other Class 4A Jeffco girls soccer team matched Evergreen’s accomplishments against conference champion Wheat Ridge.

    During the Cougars’ regular-season finale May 4 at Lakewood Memorial Field, Evergreen (9-5-1 record, 6-2-1 in league) held the Farmers scoreless and managed a 0-0 tie in the process. On top of that, Evergreen clinched third place and one of the league’s four automatic berths in the 32-team state tournament.

    DENVER — D’Evelyn’s girls tennis program came up just short the last three seasons on grabbing a regional title.

    That trend changed May 6 at Colorado Academy in Denver. The Jaguars, Class 4A Jeffco League champions, edged the host Mustangs after falling short to Colorado Academy last season and Kent Denver the two previous seasons.
