  • Lady Cougars don’t let third...

    The Lady Cougars weren’t feeling sorry for themselves on Sept. 29 as was evident by the rampant cheering in the dugout during every at-bat. 

    Pitcher Sidney Fairbanks flashed a smile here and there. Shortstop Jessica Bellatti clapped as she rounded first base on the team’s first hit — a solo homer in the fourth inning.

    Cougars score first road win of the year at Falcon
    FALCON — The Evergreen Cougars got back to over .500 on the season with a 27-12 victory at Falcon on Sept. 30.

  • Cougars return home, get back on...

    Nothing will do a struggling team good like coming home. Just ask the Evergreen Cougars.

    Back-to-back shutout losses on the road — at Lewis-Palmer and Harrison by a combined score of 70-0 — dropped the three-time defending conference champions out of the CHSAANow.com 3A poll. But homecoming week in front of a lively crowd and with a defense unwilling to wilt, the Cougars took advantage of their home-field advantage with a 10-0 blanking of Eagle Valley on Sept. 23.

  • EHS serves up a victory

    Claudia Dillon, in all likelihood, isn’t going to be known for her service game. It’s not because the middle hitter can’t do it, but it’s not the Evergreen High School sophomore’s specialty, either.

  • Approach propels Swenson to...

    LITTLETON ­— For Brandon Swenson, it was a mental adjustment. The Evergreen High School senior usually takes the start of every cross country race at a break-neck pace. 

    That’s typically not something conducive to winning. So he tried a more conservative approach at the Dave Sanders Invitational.

  • Cougars roll behind second-half...

    CONIFER — Emphasizing possession and pressing forward has always been a staple of Evergreen boys’ soccer. It goes a long way toward victory.

  • Lahr, Cougars have their way...

    Ryan Lahr was picking his spots. If Evergreen’s No. 1 singles player wanted a hard-hitting forehand down the line, he did so. If he wanted to smash a cross-court shot into the back corner, it was there. If he wanted a service ace, there was those as well. 

    It didn’t hurt that his opponent — Wheat Ridge’s Matt Sewell — double-faulted a time or two or was hampered by unforced errors.

    Evergreen sending trio to 4A state tournament
    FRUITA — A season that seemingly couldn’t go wrong hit a snafu Sept. 19 at the 4A Region 4 boys golf tournament at Adobe Creek National Golf Course.

  • Cougars finish second to one

    LITTLETON — On the one hand, Brandon Swenson and Weston Donati-Leach could look at their performances at the 39th annual Liberty Bell and be quite content with it. But then there’s the other hand.

  • Tenney, Cougars win at Indian...

    LAFAYETTE — Mike Kuzava, Evergreen’s boys’ golf coach, could use his fair share of superlatives to describe Bridger Tenney: He’s gifted, be it in academics or athletics. He’s top-notch. 

    On Sept. 7, Tenney was also something else: the best player in the field at Indian Peaks Golf Course.
