  • Evergreen blanks Conifer on...

    CONIFER -- Evergreen senior Sofia Weiner kicked off her final season with a solid performance in a 5-0 victory over rival Conifer on Thursday night at Lobo Field.
    With temperatures on the cool side, the Lady Cougars offense heated things up, firing off two shots in the game’s first three minutes.
    The Lady Cougars struck first in the 5th minute as Weiner intercepted a Conifer pass and powered a shot from 15 yards out past the Lady Lobos keeper and into the back of the net, giving Evergreen the early 1-0 advantage.

  • Cougars proud despite loss

    LAKEWOOD — The seventh-ranked Dakota Ridge girls lacrosse team flexed its muscle on April 27 in a 20-9 victory over Evergreen.

    “I’m very pleased with our team after today,” said Evergreen head coach Kevin Krum. “We have a very young team, first year program and I’m proud of how good this young team played against a strong program like Dakota Ridge.”

  • Conifer falls to Rocky Mountain

     Five goals wouldn’t be enough for the Conifer girls lacrosse team as it fell 17-5 against Rocky Mountain on Friday night.

    Both teams did their best to fight snowy conditions, which brought more than a foot of fresh powder to the Conifer area that night. The Lobos were led by sophomore Lena Heaney, who finished the game with two goals on five shots. 

  • Conifer, Clear Creek show...

    EVERGREEN — The score may have been largely in favor of Conifer, but the respect was equal among the Lobos and Clear Creek after Conifer defeated the Diggers 17-1.

     With just miles separating the two schools, many of the athletes for both squads grew up playing lacrosse together. A sport that is naturally violent showed a soft spot as the two teams lifted one another up throughout the game.

  • Love leads Evergreen to a 6-1...

    Sophomore Zoe Love has seen her fair share of struggles in her two seasons with Evergreen tennis. This season, Love has a record of 3-5 as the No.1 singles player for the Cougars. On Monday afternoon, Love picked up some confidence as she topped Alma Younger of George Washington in three sets as Evergreen defeated the Patriots 6-1.

  • Conifer extends winning streak...

    ENGLEWOOD — With just one game left in its regular season, the Conifer Lobos’ baseball team extended its winning streak to three games after defeating Englewood 12-0 on Saturday.

  • Evergreen falls in shootout

    LAKEWOOD — Sophomore Lily Mott notched four goals during Evergreen’s match against Ralston Valley, but her effort wouldn’t be enough as the Cougars fell 19-8 on April 18.

    The Mustangs jumped ahead early, outscoring Evergreen 13-5 in the first half. Along with Mott, senior Tess Albert had an outstanding performance tallying three goals on five shots.

    WHEAT RIDGE — Keeping within reach of the 4A Jeffco League baseball leaders was the task for Evergreen and Wheat Ridge on Saturday.

    While the conference schedule is only about a third of the way done, the Cougars and Farmers can’t afford to fall too far behind league-leading and defending 4A state champion Valor Christian (9-3, 3-0 in league).

  • Late rally not enough for Huskies

    EVERGREEN — The start and finish of the Platte Canyon vs Clear Creek game went in favor of the Huskies, but the score ended with the Golddiggers having the advantage in a wild shootout.

    Trailing 14-6 entering the top of the seventh inning, the Huskies did everything they could to erase the deficit in a game that took three hours to finish.

    For the Courier

    CONIFER — Paul Taylor offered a one-word impression of his initial Conifer-Evergreen boys lacrosse game: Intense. 

    Imagine the adjective the first-year Lobos coach would use if the Cougars were a bit more competitive in the heated rivals’ battle for the King of the Hill trophy, established in 2016.
