  • Tenney, Lady Cougars take second...

    ARVADA — Madison Tenney carded an 80 to place second overall, and the Evergreen Lady Cougars finished second in a seven-team 4A Jeffco League match at Lake Arbor Golf Club on April 2.

    Evergreen, as a team, shot a 378 total — 28 strokes back of D’Evelyn. Conifer came in third with a 447.

    Fellow Evergreen senior Emily Rivers placed fifth with an 86, while freshman Natalie Holley was 10th with a 95. D’Evelyn finished with four golfers in the top nine, led by Emilee Strausburg’s meet-winning score of 73.

  • Ultimate warriors

    It’s barely 8 a.m. on a Monday morning and Travis Macy and Brandy Erholtz have already gotten a workout in with barely 24 hours before jumping on a flight to Oregon to compete in the Gorge Waterfalls 50k ultra marathon. It’s the lifestyle for these endurance runners.
    “We’re definitely not weekend warriors. Like a lot of people in endurance sports we’re competing at a very high level,” Macy said. “We’re both parents, we’re teachers. We do many different things. It’s a balancing act.”

  • Tenney, Lady Cougars take Jeffco...

    GOLDEN — Madison Tenney is kind of a quiet person, Evergreen head coach Mike Kuzava said, but the Lady Cougars senior is taking on more of a leadership role with the 2014 girls golf team. She’s not necessarily an out-front leader, but she’s embracing the role.
    “When you’re trying to build a program that is consistently good you need girls to lead the younger ones so that the younger ones know what to do when they get there,” Kuzava said.

    Sprechen Sie Deutsch? It would come in handy if you’re an Evergreen tennis coach or player.
    Last fall, co-coaches Kris Nielsen and Bob Greenman welcomed German exchange student Dennis Von Kuczkowski to the boys’ team and he ended up playing No. 1 singles. This spring, there’s more of the same, as two German exchange students are playing major roles on the girls’ team, including junior Lena Wagner at No. 1 singles.
    “I wish we could fly to Germany and recruit,” quipped Nielsen.
