    DENVER — Just 3 minutes into the game and Charles Dinegar was already having himself a game. The D’Evelyn junior had scored the team’s first nine points and was creating a defensive mismatch for the Conifer Lobos on Dec. 16. That’s when Conifer employed a 1-3-1 zone intended to slow Dinegar down.

    Evergreen graduated five key seniors from last season’s 4A girls basketball runner-up team and returned just one of note for 2016-17, so a drop-off of sorts would be understandable.

    Voters in the CHSAANow.com preseason poll apparently weren’t convinced, slotting the Lady Cougars at No. 4.

  • Condit continues early success

    CONIFER — In high school years, Zander Condit is a babe in the woods roaming the halls at Conifer. But on the wrestling mat, the freshman struts like a seasoned veteran.

    EVERGREEN — Connor Peterson feels like he’s gotten better as a wrestler, but he also knew after his match Dec. 12 against Clear Creek’s George Gothman that the Golddiggers sophomore is an improving grappler as well.

    GOLDEN — Inside the 3-point line belonged to Golden’s boys basketball team Dec. 9.

    The Demons, ranked No. 4 in the CHSAANow.com Class 4A boys hoops poll, limited Conifer to just two made 2-point field goals in the non-league game against former 4A Jeffco League foes. 

  • Cougars taketh away in rout

    Mike Dillon couldn’t have asked for a better way to start the season. The 6-foot-6 Evergreen senior, as good with his hands and outside shooting as he is at being an imposing inside presence for the Cougars, collected a steal — the first of many for EHS on the night — dribbled down court and delivered a season-opening slam.

    Natalie Kenchel is used to the comparisons. It doesn’t matter who it is or where she’s at, the Evergreen sophomore can usually count on being compared with older sister Katelyn, a key component to the Lady Cougars’ state success in recent years.

  • Schedule testing Conifer early on

    DENVER — Eric Valerio’s last two Conifer boys basketball teams posted 8-0 records in non-conference play against mostly inferior competition, only to finish well below .500 in the 4A Jeffco League and be left out of the state tournament.

    Lesson learned the hard way.

  • Huge surge propels EHS to victory

    Keigan Drysdale expected more of a press from Silver Creek. Her Evergreen Lady Cougars, ranked No. 4 in the CHSAANow.com 4A preseason poll, definitely prepared for such, she said. 

    They also prepared for more of a zone defense than what they saw. It didn’t come. At least not to the point of slowing down the Lady Cougars.
