  • Conifer softball is headed to...

    DENVER — All season long, Conifer softball coach Carrie Oletski has praised this year’s team as one of her best.

    That sentiment came to fruition on Saturday at the All-City Stadium complex, when the Lobos secured a spot in the state tournament by winning two of three regional matchups to advance.

  • Evergreen gymnastics eyeing...

    LITTLETON — Even though its roster is weakened at the moment, the Evergreen High School gymnastics team is looking to improve upon its fifth-place finish from last season heading into the postseason this year.

  • Football in the Foothills:...

    For youngsters aspiring to play for the Colorado Rapids or the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team one day, Evergreen now has additional opportunities to help them build the skill sets and find the playing time they need to make it to the big leagues.

    Or, simply to have fun.

    The area has two soccer programs for young children: one run by the Evergreen Park & Recreation District and the other run by Altitude Soccer.

  • After league, Cougars prepare...

    LITTLETON — Going into the 4A/5A Jeffco League meet on Thursday at Clement Park, the Evergreen cross country team had a strong showing in most of its competitions.

    After finishing third and fourth in the respective boys and girls races at league, the Cougars are hoping they can carry that momentum into regionals and, with a little luck, state in the following weeks.

  • Huskies fall to Golddiggers...

    BAILEY — Clear Creek volleyball may have won its match against Platte Canyon on Oct. 10, but it lost much more when senior Brittany Burr went down with an ankle injury in the middle of the second game.

  • Evergreen golf finishes runner-...

     

    LITTLETON — For the first time in school history, in a rally from Bridger Tenney, Clayton Whitton, Xan Anderson and Nolan Miller, the Evergreen golf team finished runner-up in last week’s 4A state tournament, with Tenney coming in second place in the individual competition.

    “I’m extremely thankful that I was a part of this,” head coach Mike Kuzava said. “These guys kind of did their own bonding and coaching, and I was just along for the ride.

  • EHS football takes down Skyview...

    By Craig Harper

    EVERGREEN — Evan Price booted a game-winning field goal in his debut as his brother Davis’ replacement last season. And this year he hauled in his first touchdown pass, an 80-yarder no less.

    Those “firsts’’ were memorable for the Evergreen senior. But they paled in significance and satisfaction to when he accomplished both for the second time in the fourth quarter of a statement 10-9 win over Skyview on Friday. It was the third-straight victory for the Cougars (5-1 overall).

  • Lobos win handily in “Fire Game...

    CONIFER — After adding an extra game to the end of its regular season schedule, Conifer softball wanted to make sure its contest against Lakewood meant something.

    Whether defeating Lakewood 12-3 or tossing rubber ducks sold onto the mound after the game, neither the Lobos nor the Tigers will forget the “Fire Game” they played to raise money for the Elk Creek Fire Department on Saturday morning.

  • Szuch, Cougars’ XC getting ready...

    NORTHGLENN — After just half the team competed in Friday’s Pat Amato Classic at Northwest Open Spaces, Evergreen cross country felt pretty good heading into regionals.

    Midway through the boys’ race on the sunny afternoon, the wind picked up to what felt like gale-force levels as a storm cell moved into the area. About 30 minutes later, midway through the girls’ race, coaches and officials pulled the competitors off the course due to nearby lightning, and they weren’t able to complete their course.

  • Huskies down Saints in strong...

    BAILEY — Early into the season, Platte Canyon football has been rolling. However, after a rough start to their homecoming game against Vail Christian on Saturday, its perfect record looked to be in jeopardy.

    That is, until it found its groove again in the second quarter. After regrouping and tightening their defense against a very good quarterback in senior Tom Engleby, the Huskies downed the Saints easily 43-22.
