  • Baylor’s Kloack tackles first 5K

    By Tim Donohoo
    For the Courier
    This year’s edition of the Elk Meadow 5K/10K was not your ordinary run for Carly Kloack of Parker. The June 28 event served as the Baylor University lacrosse athlete’s first 5K, and despite finishing 11th overall in a field of 32 runners — 52 runners competed in the 10K portion — Kloack was all smiles as she crossed the finish line in 32 minutes, 20 seconds.

  • Slacker veteran Crespin finally...

    GEORGETOWN — Lucas Crespin wasn’t going to be denied any longer.
    The 29-year-old Lone Tree resident has been painstakingly close to winning the Slacker Half Marathon three times before, finishing fourth in 2008 and ’09 — the first time after a detour cost him some precious minutes — and he was the runner-up in 2012. But each time, he got a little bit faster.

  • Funds still needed for EHS press...

    What do high school football and an English classroom have in common? If it’s Evergreen High School, as it currently stands, the classroom is where assistant coaches on the opposing team communicate with the coaches on the field. It’s not an ideal situation, but maybe that’s about to change.

  • Evergreen graduate Peterson...

    Kyle Peterson didn’t play the Old Course at St. Andrews — host of a record 28 Open Championships, also known as the British Open here in the United States — but it was still St. Andrews.
    “It was honestly a learning experience. Completely different golf,” Peterson said. “I’m really glad that I got exposed to it at such a young age and got to learn a different way to play golf.”

  • Cowboys, cowgirls circle the...

    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.
