  • Cougars taketh away in rout

    Mike Dillon couldn’t have asked for a better way to start the season. The 6-foot-6 Evergreen senior, as good with his hands and outside shooting as he is at being an imposing inside presence for the Cougars, collected a steal — the first of many for EHS on the night — dribbled down court and delivered a season-opening slam.

    1. TOUGH SLEDDING Evergreen, as usual, will have its work cut out for it in the always stingy 4A Jeffco League.

It will be a dogfight all season long.

    “They definitely saw that anything is possible. Taking what we do as a program and just executing it well produced success. The team coming in this year sees that.”
    — Evergreen head coach Amy Bahl, on the Lady Cougars’ run to the 4A state championship game last season and this year’s crop of players seeing that success.
