  • Peterson’s lone goal enough for...

    At first glance, Evergreen’s 1-0 girls soccer win over Conifer on April 9 was a bit disappointing for the Lady Cougars. 

    The second-ranked team in 4A probably should’ve won by more at Evergreen High School considering how much pressure it put on the Lady Lobos’ net. But the end result was still the same — a win.

  • Lobos’ early attack stymies...

    CONIFER — From the moment Stone Henderson blew past the Evergreen defense for the game’s first goal to his last, the Conifer Lobos unleashed a smooth, transition attack that has been its bread and butter in 2015. The end result was Conifer’s third straight victory over its archrival, this time 10-6, at Lobo Field on April 8.

  • Janson, Lady Lobos serve up a...

    From time to time, there is a striking dichotomy among opponents, be it differences in physical strength or size. In the case of the No. 1 singles match between Conifer and Evergreen, it was age and skill-level making the game even more exciting to watch.

    Usually, the No. 1 singles position for a varsity tennis team goes to a senior who has played for four years, assuming greater maturity and prowess after playing that long. But Conifer freshman Hailey Janson has turned that notion on its head.

  • Moens tosses gem at Coors Field

    DENVER — Alec Moens, technically, is the Evergreen Cougars’ closer, not a starter. But with first-year head coach Steve Jones electing to honor his seniors April 1 at Coors Field, the senior right-hander got the starting nod.

    Now, it’s not like Moens had never started before. He had, including a 7-3 win over 4A Jeffco rival and eventual state champion Green Mountain last season. 

  • Holley, Evergreen show no rust...

    BROOMFIELD — Considering it had been two weeks between 4A Jeffco League golf tournaments, thanks to spring break, Evergreen sophomore Natalie Holley probably was happy to shoot an 86 on April 1 at Broadlands Golf Course. 

    Head coach Mike Kuzava had no qualms over her performance, especially after the returning 4A state qualifier made up eight strokes on the back nine.

  • Cougars record four state...

    LITTLETON — The teams, like the bodies that make them up, were extremely lean at the Jeffco tri-meet April 3 at The Ridge Rec Center as Columbine, Evergreen and Lakewood high schools boys’ swim teams fought through missing swimmers to gain points and nab state qualifying times.

  • Winter sports: 4A Jeffco all-...

    The following are the 4A Jeffco League all-conference boys and girls basketball teams for the 2014-15 season:

    4A JEFFCO BOYS BASKETBALL
    FIRST TEAM
    Oscar Morales, Arvada; Dustin Morrison, Conifer; Grant Witherspoon, D’Evelyn; Nathan Haas, Evergreen; Ryan Thistlewood, Golden; Ryan Blodgett, Golden; Connor Durant, Standley Lake; Khameron Davis, Valor Christian; Jalen Sanders, Valor Christian; Vedin Kozic, Wheat Ridge

  • Coming into its own

    Lacrosse is a fast-paced game. It’s also viewed as a blend of many sports. 

    It’s soccer, but a little faster. It’s hockey, primarily more so on the boys side than the girls because of its can-be physical nature. It’s basketball. It’s all rolled into one.

    And it’s coming into its own, especially the girls game.

  • Cougars show their will to win...

    Evergreen High School baseball coach Steve Jones preaches the name on the front of the jersey — Cougars — more so than the one on the back. 

    In his words, there are no individual stars, and it’s definitely not about any single player. His Cougars showed that and more in a three-game spring break trip to Phoenix, winning two of three games to return to Colorado with a 4-1 record.

  • Holley picks up where she left...

    GOLDEN — Applewood Golf Course is sort of a special place for Natalie Holley. Last year, as a freshman, the Evergreen golfer made her high school varsity debut here. 

    She didn’t play as well as she would March 18 in the 4A Jeffco League season opener, but it was a great learning experience.
