  • Cougars fall in first round of...

    By Levi Waddell

    LAKEWOOD — Despite being the higher seed headed into Saturday’s first-round playoff matchup at Trailblazer Stadium, the Evergreen Cougars (9-2) were unable to stop the Rifle Bears’ (9-2) potent rushing attack as they fell 37-10. This marks the second year in a row the Cougars were unable to reach the second round of the playoffs.

    It was evident from Rifle’s first drive that the Cougar defense was going to struggle with the Bears’ Wing T offense.

  • Five Cougars will continue...

    Five Evergreen High School athletes signed their letters of intent to continue their sporting careers in college for soccer, cross country, baseball and swimming on National Signing Day on Wednesday.

  • Evergreen All-Conference Lists

    With fall sports wrapping up, many of the Jeffco All-Conference lists are being released, with the exception of football. For Evergreen High School, kids from six sports made the All-Conference lists this fall.

    Evergreen’s football season ended Saturday in the playoff loss to Rifle, but Jeffco will not release the All-Conference list until all Jeffco teams have exited the playoffs. Volleyball lists have not yet been released.

  • Evergreen overcomes injuries,...

    THORNTON — While the 4A state gymnastics championship offered encouragement for Evergreen’s young and injury/illness-riddled team, it also presented second-year coach Tabor Cowden with a point of emphasis for next season.

    Finishing.

    The Cougars, and junior standout Jackie Fritsche in particular, couldn’t close the deal on Nov. 3, the first day of competition at Thornton High School.

  • Cougars lose to Mullen in upset...

    EVERGREEN — All year long, the Evergreen volleyball team has been rolling through one of its most successful seasons in the past few years, but it all came to an end in the high school’s gym on Saturday afternoon as the Cougars fell to Mullen in a huge upset in the regional tournament.

    In the round-robin style tourney, the ninth-seeded Cougars hosted Thompson Valley (No. 16) and Mullen (No. 28). Everybody played each other, and the team who won both of its matches would advance to the state tournament on Friday and Saturday at the Denver Coliseum.

  • Officials: EHS didn’t use...

    Officials from the Colorado High School Activities Association, Evergreen High School and Jeffco Public Schools found that EHS didn’t use an ineligible player during its 10-9 varsity football victory over Skyview on Oct. 6. CHSAA received material — phone call correspondence and letters – last month from Skyview officials about the possible infraction by Evergreen High School.

    Bert Borgmann, an assistant commissioner for CHSAA, which oversees high school athletics in Colorado, said via e-mail that the issue is a matter between the schools.

  • Lobos fizzle out at the finish...

    CONIFER — For a half, the Conifer Lobos — at least on the scoreboard — showed they could hang with Skyview on Friday night at Lobo Field.

    It didn’t hurt that Conifer stopped Wolverines quarterback Michael Vigil short of the goal line as time expired in the first half.

    The second half, however, was a different story.

    Skyview took the opening drive 59 yards in just over three minutes for the first of three Deyvon Butler second-half touchdowns, and the Wolverines rolled to a 20-0 shutout of Conifer.

  • Dikken completes stellar...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — At the beginning of this school year, with Platte Canyon’s cross country team extremely thin in number of runners, it didn’t look as though the Huskies would send anyone to state. But, after a strong individual season, they were able to send some talent in superstar freshman, Emma Dikken.

    “It was good,” she said. “I’m glad I know how it’s going to be because it was hard, and I didn’t know how many people would be here.”

  • Conifer boys cross country ends...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Conifer cross country has been strong all season long, and it all came to an end at the Norris Penrose Center on Saturday in a metaphorical fashion, as juniors Sean Sands and Will Toppin crossed the finish line as a team, just 0.1 seconds apart.

  • After state, Cougars’ XC looks...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — All throughout this season, it seemed as though the Evergreen cross country team had been building its way up to state. The Cougars started off the year a bit slow, then slowly but surely, worked its way up to regional dominance.

    After qualifying their full boys and girls teams for the state competition at regionals, the Cougars fared well at the end-all meet on Saturday at the Norris Penrose Center as the girls’ team took 14th out of 20 squads, and the boys took 19th.
