  • Little monsters on the wrestling...

    Quentin Willson can’t tell you what it is about wrestling that he likes so much, just that he does.

    “It’s just fun,” said the 13-year-old eighth-grader at Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen. He’s been wrestling since he was 4.

  • Lady Cougars hammer Roosevelt

    Let’s face it not every birthday wish comes true, so it’s especially amazing when they do. Such was the case for Evergreen senior Annie Trimarco, whose 18th birthday wish was granted Dec. 12 when her team bested the Roosevelt Lady Rough Riders 76-20 in girls basketball action at Evergreen High School.

    “We had a loss (to Mullen, 41-36) and that made the girls really want the win tonight,” Evergreen head coach Amy Bahl said.

  • Hanson fine-tunes skills as EHS...

    BAILEY — It didn’t take Lane Hanson long to notice a skill difference from wrestling up a weight class or two. Just like the Evergreen senior, who wrestled at 113 pounds last year, most everybody that he’s wrestled this season have also been moving up in weight class and improving on his skill set.

    So he took the Cougars’ annual tri-meet with host Platte Canyon and Clear Creek on Dec. 9 as an opportunity to better his own moves in anticipation of facing stiffer competition later this season.

    Evergreen wins two out of three at Green Mountain tournament
    LAKEWOOD — The Evergreen Cougars improved to 4-1 on the season with a 54-48 victory over Canon City on Dec. 13 at the Green Mountain tournament.

    The Cougars jumped out to a 19-11 lead in the first quarter and held on from there.

    Dylan Allbrandt led the Tigers (1-5) with 11 points. Luke Nethercot and Dante Teigen scored 10 each.

  • Cougars impose their defensive...

    Evergreen head boys basketball coach Scott Haebe has made no bones about it. For his team to be successful, it will be because the Cougars’ man-to-man defense is stifling the opposition.

    In Evergreen’s home opener Dec. 4 against Fort Lupton, it took a quarter before the Cougars made their presence felt defensively, but it did eventually happen. It, in turn, opened up an offense that seemingly couldn’t miss in the second and third quarters of a 65-36 non-conference victory.

  • Evergreen epitomizes hard work,...

    DENVER — Like a well-rehearsed chorus line, sort of like the Radio City Rockettes, Evergreen High’s poms team is a well-oiled machine.

    Their hair seemingly perfect, their movements equaled to that. Typically, as has been the case for years now, they can do no wrong.

  • 2014 all-conference football,...

    The following are all-conference selections for the 2014 fall season in football and volleyball:

  • James Morrato is the smart one

    When one talks about James Morrato, it’s not just what kind of basketball player he is, even though he was an all-conference honorable mention selection last season.

    It’s not the kind of soccer player he is, though he was first team all-conference in the fall. 

    And it’s not just the kind of student he is, though he does hold a 4.48 grade-point average, is the student body president and is a three-time state qualifier and national qualifier in DECA.

  • Return of Hanson, sophomores...

    Lane Hanson admits it. The Evergreen senior wrestler went into last year’s regional tournament a little too cocky. Coming off a win over Valor Christian’s Coby Welch a week earlier at Bear Creek may have done more harm than good considering the end result. He finished fifth in arguably the toughest bracket of all the regionals.

  • Trimarco ready for the spotlight

    The changes in Annie Trimarco’s game may not be all that noticeable at first glance, but take a closer look and one can see the Evergreen senior’s confidence growing by leaps and bounds.

    “My confidence has definitely gone up,” Trimarco said. “It has to do a lot with me being more comfortable and this being my last year. It’s my last chance to prove myself.”
