    GIRLS SOCCER
    Evergreen preps for the playoffs with a shutout of Battle Mtn.
    EDWARDS — Freshman Cassidy Formanek scored her third goal of the season and Sophia Weiner assisted on the score as Evergreen toppled host Battle Mountain 1-0 on May 2.

    The Lady Cougars were coming off back-to-back wins over D’Evelyn (4-1) and Standley Lake (1-0) to lock up the 4A Jeffco League championship.

    Natalie Ulfig and Allie Seracuse combined to make five saves in net for EHS.

    Evergreen girls soccer coach Peter Jeans couldn’t have asked for much more from his team. 

    His Evergreen Lady Cougars, as is usually the case, controlled the ball possession and had its fair share of shots on goal. But what EHS couldn’t do April 23 against Valor Christian was find the back of the net.

    The fourth-ranked visiting Lady Eagles, however, did, on Jastin Redman’s goal in the 77th minute, for a 1-0 victory at Evergreen High School, ending the top-ranked Lady Cougars’ 11-game winning streak and any chance at a perfect season.

  • EHS leaves chances on the base...

    LAKEWOOD — If the Evergreen Cougars are fortunate to make the 4A baseball playoffs, as head coach Steve Jones says — and that’s pretty likely — games like the 2-1 loss to Wheat Ridge on April 25 will help them.

  • Cougars overcome Lobos’ jinx

    The short return home has not always been a pleasant ride for Evergreen baseball teams. Just last year, the Cougars had a chance to clinch a tie for the 4A Jeffco League title but suffered a 14-13 walk-off loss in the regular-season finale and settled for second place.

  • Morales taking her talents out...

    Camille Morales has always wanted to go to California. Running on the beach every day and soaking in the weather is very appealing. 

    It may be even more so now that the Evergreen High senior has signed her letter of intent to run cross country and track at the University of San Diego.

    EHS held a signing ceremony for the eight-time letter-winner and three-time first-team 4A Jeffco League all-conference selection on April 15. Morales chose San Diego over Santa Clara University.

    GIRLS SOCCER
    Weiner’s goal holds up as Evergreen stays perfect
    LAKEWOOD — Sophia Weiner scored the game’s lone goal in the second half, off an assist from Zoe Peterson, as undefeated Evergreen toppled Wheat Ridge 1-0 on April 15 at Lakewood Memorial Field.

    With the win, the Lady Cougars improved to 10-0 overall, 5-0 in 4A Jeffco League play.

    Natalie Ulfig made four saves in net for Evergreen.

  • 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.
