  • Conifer, Clear Creek show...

    EVERGREEN — The score may have been largely in favor of Conifer, but the respect was equal among the Lobos and Clear Creek after Conifer defeated the Diggers 17-1.

     With just miles separating the two schools, many of the athletes for both squads grew up playing lacrosse together. A sport that is naturally violent showed a soft spot as the two teams lifted one another up throughout the game.

  • Love leads Evergreen to a 6-1...

    Sophomore Zoe Love has seen her fair share of struggles in her two seasons with Evergreen tennis. This season, Love has a record of 3-5 as the No.1 singles player for the Cougars. On Monday afternoon, Love picked up some confidence as she topped Alma Younger of George Washington in three sets as Evergreen defeated the Patriots 6-1.

  • Conifer extends winning streak...

    ENGLEWOOD — With just one game left in its regular season, the Conifer Lobos’ baseball team extended its winning streak to three games after defeating Englewood 12-0 on Saturday.

    The Lobos scored early and often, tallying eight runs in the opening inning. Seniors John Betsch and Matt Aceto provided the power at the plate for Conifer. The duo combined to go 4-for-6 with four RBIs.

  • Evergreen falls in shootout

    LAKEWOOD — Sophomore Lily Mott notched four goals during Evergreen’s match against Ralston Valley, but her effort wouldn’t be enough as the Cougars fell 19-8 on April 18.

    The Mustangs jumped ahead early, outscoring Evergreen 13-5 in the first half. Along with Mott, senior Tess Albert had an outstanding performance tallying three goals on five shots.

    WHEAT RIDGE — Keeping within reach of the 4A Jeffco League baseball leaders was the task for Evergreen and Wheat Ridge on Saturday.

    While the conference schedule is only about a third of the way done, the Cougars and Farmers can’t afford to fall too far behind league-leading and defending 4A state champion Valor Christian (9-3, 3-0 in league).

  • Late rally not enough for Huskies

    EVERGREEN — The start and finish of the Platte Canyon vs Clear Creek game went in favor of the Huskies, but the score ended with the Golddiggers having the advantage in a wild shootout.

    Trailing 14-6 entering the top of the seventh inning, the Huskies did everything they could to erase the deficit in a game that took three hours to finish.

  • Conifer’s fast start slows down...

    For the Courier

    CONIFER — Paul Taylor offered a one-word impression of his initial Conifer-Evergreen boys lacrosse game: Intense. 

    Imagine the adjective the first-year Lobos coach would use if the Cougars were a bit more competitive in the heated rivals’ battle for the King of the Hill trophy, established in 2016. 

  • Lobos get on a winning streak

    Cold weather greeted the Conifer tennis team on April 11 as it hosted Englewood. But it didn’t deter the Lobos, who showed dominance over the Pirates, picking up their first win of the season with a 6-1 victory.

    “I expected our one singles and two doubles to win today,” said head coach Dennis Knopf. “Our No. 1 single Hailey Janson has been a great player for us. She’s undefeated and just continues to be a strong player.”

  • Questionable calls haunt...

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen head coach Steve Jones isn’t one to make excuses. The veteran skipper knows a thing or two about baseball and understands when his team fails to capitalize on scoring chances. 

    On Saturday, the Cougars had several chances to manufacture runs, but couldn’t overcome a tough pitching performance by Ponderosa’s Sam Beecher in a 5-2 loss at All-Star Park.

  • Offense lifts Conifer past Fort...

    CONIFER — Jackson Hale finished with just one hit, but boy was it a big one. The sophomore crushed a double into the gap, bringing home a pair of Lobos as Conifer rolled past Fort Morgan 11-5 on Friday at Conifer High School.

    Hale finished with a team-high three RBIs.

    Sophomores Sam Nease, Cody Brown and Avery Fulford combined to tally five RBIs, along with six hits.
