  • ‘I still dream of flying’

    “I used to dream about flying when I was a kid,” said Evergreen resident and IT specialist for the National Park Services Allen “Sparky” Sparks as he feeds the poles that give his hang glider shape through their narrow Dacron fabric opening.

  • Cougars return loaded talent...

    In 2014, three sophomores — Liam Short, Lenny Urbas and Mark Champine — and a freshman — Bridger Tenney — brought a sense of relief to the Evergreen Cougars’ boys golf program. Now it’s not like EHS hasn’t had its share of success in the past; it has. But last year was the first time in four years that the Cougars had qualified for the 4A state tournament as a team.

  • Krause repeats at Mt. Falcon 15K

    By Craig Harper, for the Courier

    MORRISON — Her 9-year-old daughter’s soccer schedule prevents Lindsay Krause from fulfilling a full schedule of races. But Krause has managed to squeeze in the last two Mt. Falcon 15K runs — the third and middle leg of the Evergreen Trail Racing Series — and she’s made the most of both opportunities.

  • Cougars use summer camp to focus...

    Rob Molholm may be a bit superstitious. After all, he is a high school football coach. Why else would the Evergreen High coach, entering his seventh season, put his team through its annual two-week camp, which ended July 31, even though the Cougars won’t start the regular season until Sept. 4 at Lewis-Palmer?

    “We’re not going to change things since it’s been working. Since 2010, we’ve been doing this camp,” Molholm said.

  • Chase continues rowing success

    Kendall Chase continues to add to her rowing accolades. The Evergreen resident and University of California junior repeated at the U-23 world rowing championships on July 26 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, helping the United States to win the women’s four and eight titles for a second consecutive year.

  • Bleeding blue and gold

    Jesse Orlans bleeds Evergreen blue and gold. The 2000 EHS graduate spent three years on the football field for the Cougars as a varsity player. He bled, sweated and shed some tears on the field.

    He’s also very prideful. So when the 33-year-old returned to Evergreen five years ago to be an assistant coach, not to mention head up the program’s JV and Level III squads, he did so with a chip on his shoulder.

  • Column: From Alberta to New...

    Chances are you didn’t spend a portion of your summer like Charles Lynch did. I certainly didn’t.

    The 2013 Evergreen High School graduate and now a recreation major at Western Washington University only went on a 2,768-mile bike ride from Banff, Alberta, to the New Mexico-Mexico border, passing through Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado in the process. That’s all.

  • Positive vibes escape Cougars

    The Legion A district baseball tournament hosted by Evergreen evolved into a Cougar version of Jekyll and Hyde, a conundrum of epic proportions.

    Good (but not good enough) Evergreen gave Eaton, the defending 3A champion and the eight-team district’s No. 1 seed, a scare in the July 23 opening round. Boosted by the pitching of sophomore Jack Messler, the Cougars led the Reds 3-2 after four innings before bowing 5-3 to the eventual champion.

  • EHS boys golf tryouts on tap

    Evergreen High School boys golf team will hold tryouts Aug. 10 and 11 — the 10th at Indian Tree Golf Course in Arvada and 11th at Fox Hollow in Lakewood. Tee time is noon on the 10th and 2:15 p.m. on the 11th.

    Players from Evergreen and Clear Creek High School are encouraged to participate. In order to tryout players must have completed and turned in paperwork to athletic secretary Ruth Warren.

  • Press box adds new element to EHS

    Sitting just off the track at Evergreen High School, the blue and gold-colored press box is a welcomed sight. It’s been a long time coming, but it was a necessity if the school wants to host more varsity football game up in the foothills.

    “It’s very nice. I really like the way it looks,” Evergreen varsity football coach Rob Molholm said. “It’s been a long time coming. We’re excited to have it.”
