    Almost always on the short end of the numbers game, team results don’t mean much to the Platte Canyon girls swimming team.

    “I tell them swimming is an individual sport ultimately,’’ sixth-year coach Alicia Gumm said prior to last week’s Tri-Peaks League championships. “If you look at our results, we often have girls who place in the top five or 10. But in most meets, we only swim in five events.’’

Despite opportunity after opportunity to sink the game-winner in the final seconds of the matchup, the Cougars just couldn’t get a shot to fall as they eventually lost, 58-57.

  • Cougar swimmers victorious...

    EVERGREEN — Following suit in its dominating season in the water, the Evergreen girls’ swim team defeated the visiting Conifer Lobos at the Wulf Rec Center on Jan. 23 during senior night, 120-54.

    ARVADA — Conifer’s boys basketball team found its scoring touch in the nick of time on Jan. 23 at Arvada High School.

    Despite Brush’s dominant performance against the Conifer Lobos wrestling team last Tuesday, Conifer’s Zander and Cayden Condit both showed they’re worthy of their top-15 rankings in their respective weight classes.

    Although Brush came out on top 60-12, the Condit siblings both notched pins in impressive fashion.
