  • Cougars find the right touch in...

    First-year Evergreen boys soccer coach Ross Fowler, like his predecessor Peter Jeans, preaches that his team should have greater possession of the ball than the opposition. He finds that the teams who are able to do that consistently score a lot more goals later in the game.

  • Murphy, Wall spark Evergreen...

    PARKER — The Evergreen Lady Cougars volleyball team played a shoelace game against the Lutheran Lady Lions, winning 25-13, 25-15, 24-26, 25-21 at Lutheran High School on Sept. 4.

    For the first two games, every ball the Lady Cougars lobbed over the net seemed to sink right at the Lions’ feet, forcing Lutheran to dig time and again. But then the Lady Cougars lost their momentum in the third game.

    Reifeis, Cougars improve to 2-0, top Northridge
    GREELEY — Evergreen junior quarterback Dylan Reifeis completed 22 of 26 passes for 273 yards and two touchdowns as the Cougars, ranked fifth in this week’s CHSAA poll, toppled host Northridge 39-22 on Sept. 6 at District 6 Stadium.

    Marcus Cassin caught nine passes for 112 yards and one touchdown. Connor Solawetz also caught a TD pass.

  • Cougars dominant on defense,...

    Greysen Lincoln was hoping for something like the 21-yard fumble return the senior defensive lineman scored in the first quarter of Evergreen’s 2014 season opener, but he didn’t really think it was going to happen. 

    But that’s the kind of night it was for the Cougars in a Top-10 showdown that was anything but a marquee match-up.

    Evergreen, ranked No. 6 in CHSAA’s 3A preseason poll, dominated from start to finish in routing No. 9 Lewis-Palmer 38-0 on a cloud-covered Aug. 29 night at Evergreen High School.

  • Schmitt, Evergreen boys win at...

    Caitlin Schmitt took first place in the girls’ 5,000-meter race in a time of 20 minutes, 9 seconds, and Evergreen’s boys won the team title with a score of 46 at the season opening Ponderosa Mustang Stampede on Aug. 28 in Parker.

  • Cougars hang tough at Indian Tree

    Liam Short has shot 2-over-par or better in every Jeffco League tournament this season. That’s how amazing a year the Evergreen sophomore is having, and it’s fun to watch him play, head coach Mike Kuzava said.

    Evergreen blanked by Air Academy in Fowler’s debut
    COLORADO SPRINGS — Austin Dewing scored a hat trick as host and second-ranked Air Academy shut out third-ranked Evergreen 4-0 at District 20 Stadium on Aug. 28.

    Henry Yocum also scored for the Kadets.

    The game was the varsity head coaching debut for first-year Evergreen coach Ross Fowler.

  • EHS slow to find rhythm in opener

    Luke Camp said he wasn’t nervous, but the level of play will take some getting used to. It took a while for the Evergreen senior, who played at No. 2 singles last year, to find a comfort zone at No. 1 singles in the Cougars’ season opener Aug. 21 against D’Evelyn. By the time he found it, however, it was too little too late, at least this time around.

    Camp had his serve broken four times and he committed 11 double faults in a 6-2, 6-4 loss to Tom Hudson in Evergreen’s 7-0 rain-delayed loss to the Jaguars at the Wulf Recreation Center tennis courts.

  • Kay, host Lady Cougars pick off...

    By Craig Harper
    For the Courier

    Evergreen’s top returning hitter Sarah Kay didn’t have her typical big offensive game in the Aug. 22 season opener. But the fourth-year starting catcher impacted the game early in a big way with her arm and instincts behind the plate.

    Kay kept Boulder, playing its fifth game in eight days, off the scoreboard in the top of the first inning by picking off its first two batters at third base.
