    Cowboys and cowgirls alike ventured to the 49th annual Evergreen Rodeo on
    Father’s Day weekend. Competitors — both local and from as far away as Honolulu, Hawaii — tried their hand to tame the bulls, ride the horses and wrestle down the steers for two days at the El Pinal Rodeo Arena, now the Esco Construction Arena.

  • Evergreen pitcher Burke drafted...

    It’s June 6 – the second day of the three-day annual Major League Baseball amateur draft – and Brock Burke’s phone rings. It’s the Tampa Bay Rays calling.

    They couldn’t say with 100 percent certainty that it would happen, but they told the recent Evergreen High graduate to look out for the 96th pick – Tampa Bay’s fourth pick in this year’s draft and late in the third round.

  • Female athlete of the year:...

    Lindsay Morrow had already carved out a niche role for herself with the Evergreen Lady Cougars’ girls swim team, yet for the past two years, she was still in the shadows of Lexie Malazdrewicz. With Malazdrewicz graduated, the spotlight was now on Morrow, a junior, and she didn’t skip a beat.

  • Male athlete of the year: Daniel...

    It wasn’t until halfway through his senior season that Daniel Gibbins started to take notice of his numbers. The Evergreen High baseball player looked at them and saw the potential for something good.
    Weeks later, he just happened to run into interim head coach Dale Hutchings in school one day when Hutchings shook his hand and congratulated him. Gibbins had been named the 4A Jeffco League MVP.
    “I wasn’t prepared for it. It was a little out of the blue,” Gibbins said.

  • Coach of the year: Jeanne...

    By Craig Harper
    For the Courier
    Water is a life-sustenance in more ways than the obvious for Evergreen girls swimming coach Jeanne Godaire.
    Godaire is employed by the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Reclamation, where she does flood hazard investigation for the 350-some dams owned by the federal government that provide irrigation water.
    “Water is a theme running through my life,” she said.

  • BY THE NUMBERS: A look at the...

    Sports are all about numbers — how many points were scored, the digits on a jersey, how much time is left in the game, how many yards to the hole, and so forth. The 2013-14 high school season had its fair share of numbers. The Canyon Courier takes a look back at the recently concluded campaign and the numbers that stood out during the season.

  • AHEAD OF THE CURVE

    Nick Kapande has a wish. He wants to see more pitching prospects developed in Colorado so that they can make it to the pros. That, as much as anything else, is why the owner of Nick’s Pro Fitness brought Randy Sullivan’s ARMory Power Pitching Academy boot camp to Evergreen on May 24-25 for a camp about injury prevention and increasing velocity.
    “It’s about throwing correctly so that you can throw harder,” Kapande said.
