  • Conifer volleyball ends season...

    CONIFER — After building its way up from a rough start to the year, Conifer volleyball ended its season on a high note as it defeated Arvada in a 3-0 beat down on Oct. 24 on senior night, then returned to defeat Alameda two days later.

    After a strong start, during which the Lobos won 25-10 over the Bulldogs, Arvada slowly crept back into the competition in the next two games to gives Conifer a run for its money. In the end, however, the Lobos got the job done: 25-20 and 25-17.

  • Cougars dust Lobos in annual...

    EVERGREEN — The Evergreen Cougars dismissed the distractions of the hoopla surrounding its rivalry game on Oct. 20 and beat Conifer Lobos 38-13 in the Mountain Bowl Friday.

    The Cougars won their second straight game under interim coach Dave Leek, who had been the special teams coordinator, and fifth in a row overall and third in league play. The Cougars improved to 7-1 overall and can clinch the 3A West Metro title with a win this week against Green Mountain.

  • After early exit from state,...

    AURORA — The state softball tournament at the Aurora Sports Complex may not have ended the way Conifer had hoped on Friday, but with the full team returning the next year, it still has plenty to smile about — especially considering it was the Lobos’ first appearance at state since 2009.

    After coming out slowly and nervously in the first inning of their first matchup in the tournament, the Lobos ultimately fell to Silver Creek in the fifth inning, 16-6. Thus ended their state tournament run.

  • Cougars, Lobos and Huskies...

    After a long season of hard work and many miles, Evergreen, Conifer and Platte Canyon cross country will be sending runners to the state competition on Saturday in Colorado Springs.

    In a highly successful 4A Region 1 race in Frisco on Thursday, Evergreen managed to qualify both of its teams for state after the boys took first place in their competition, and the girls placed fourth to barely make the cut.

  • Platte Canyon fumbles into Clear...

    IDAHO SPRINGS — In a football battle that had the combined score topping 100, the Clear Creek Golddiggers defeated the undefeated Platte Canyon Huskies 62-42 during Friday night’s senior game.

    With the win, the Diggers (7-1) not only bested the Huskies for the first time since 1998, but they handed Platte Canyon (6-1) its first loss of a very successful season. If anything, they proved just how good they are this year, with their only loss coming against the always-formidable Bennett.

  • Evergreen volleyball finishes...

    GOLDEN — Nearing the end of its regular season and with a lot to prove going into the postseason, the Evergreen volleyball team made a statement at Golden High School on Oct. 17 as the Cougars took down the Demons in four sets, 3-1.

    All season, the Cougars boasted strong team play and sat at No. 10 in Class 4A in the CHSAANow.com rankings as of Oct. 23, but with a 12-6 record, they’ve still had their fair share of setbacks this year.

    Tuesday’s game was a near-perfect metaphor for the way their season has gone.

  • Conifer softball is headed to...

    DENVER — All season long, Conifer softball coach Carrie Oletski has praised this year’s team as one of her best.

    That sentiment came to fruition on Saturday at the All-City Stadium complex, when the Lobos secured a spot in the state tournament by winning two of three regional matchups to advance.

  • Evergreen gymnastics eyeing...

    LITTLETON — Even though its roster is weakened at the moment, the Evergreen High School gymnastics team is looking to improve upon its fifth-place finish from last season heading into the postseason this year.

  • Football in the Foothills:...

    For youngsters aspiring to play for the Colorado Rapids or the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team one day, Evergreen now has additional opportunities to help them build the skill sets and find the playing time they need to make it to the big leagues.

    Or, simply to have fun.

    The area has two soccer programs for young children: one run by the Evergreen Park & Recreation District and the other run by Altitude Soccer.

  • After league, Cougars prepare...

    LITTLETON — Going into the 4A/5A Jeffco League meet on Thursday at Clement Park, the Evergreen cross country team had a strong showing in most of its competitions.

    After finishing third and fourth in the respective boys and girls races at league, the Cougars are hoping they can carry that momentum into regionals and, with a little luck, state in the following weeks.
