  • Evergreen soccer slides to...

     

    LAKEWOOD — After soldiering on through abysmal playing conditions on Sept. 26 at Lakewood Memorial Field, Evergreen soccer slid away with a narrow victory over Wheat Ridge, 4-3, in large part thanks to the efforts of junior striker Ryan Gutberlet.

    Through hard rain in the first half, players on both sides were slipping and falling all over the field, and splashing water a few inches every time they took a step. That made for difficult playing conditions, and altered the speed and bounce of the ball.

  • Conifer softball to host game...

    Conifer softball will host a game against Lakewood this Saturday that it added to its schedule with the hopes of raising money to donate to the Elk Creek Fire Department.

    Proceeds from the “Fire Game,” as Lobo head coach Carrie Oletski calls it, will go to a fire squad that helped save Richmond Hill in Conifer last winter from burning down.

  • EHS tennis looks to regionals...

     

    After losing a host of seniors last season, the Evergreen High School tennis team has been rebuilding this year, but that doesn’t deter the Cougars one bit, especially when looking toward the future.

    “Last year, we lost seven of our starting 11 so that everyone can get called up from JV and keep up and be able to get a bunch of wins in. We’re playing well, so as long as we can play well, then (our record) doesn’t really matter,” senior doubles player Carter Morrill said.

  • D’Evelyn bounces back to thwart...

    EVERGREEN — Peyton Wright had little doubt that her D’Evelyn Jaguars would be in for a battle against host Evergreen in the 4A Jeffco League volleyball opener on Sept. 26. It was just a matter of her team getting some momentum. Once the undefeated Jaguars did that, they were confident it would carry them through to victory.

  • Evergreen soccer defeats Conifer...

    By Craig Harper

    EVERGREEN — Saddled with a 1-5 record and a two-game losing streak, the last thing it seemed the Evergreen soccer team needed heading into the annual Mountain Cup against rival Conifer was the absence of head coach Ross Fowler on the sideline.

    But maybe having Fowler relegated to keeping statistics in the EHS press box was a shot in the arm for the Cougars, with Fowler on suspension for an undisclosed reason.

  • Conifer XC races well despite...

     

    DENVER — The Conifer High School cross country team may not have been at its strongest during the Denver North Viking Invitational on Sept. 19, but this uber-talented team isn’t concerned about the results one bit.

    The boys, without their top seven runners in the competition, finished 20th out of 25 teams. The girls, however, gave the best performance they could in spite of hot, sun-beaten temperatures as they finished seventh in the race.

  • Conifer softball falls to Thomas...

     

    CONIFER — All season long, the Conifer softball team has come out fighting the majority of its opponents with a strong roster and succinct execution of play.

    But on Sept. 20 when Thomas Jefferson came to town, things didn’t exactly go the Lobos’ way as they fell on their home field 13-6.

  • Platte Canyon volleyball falls...

    WESTMINSTER — All season long, the Platte Canyon volleyball team has emphasized its fight and heart, but at times, that’s not always enough.

    At Academy Charter School on Sept. 19, that grit showed through, despite a 3-0 loss to the Wildcats.

    “I think we had a really good fight and we just never gave up,” senior setter Charley Ashmore said. “Unfortunately, we did lose, so that was the result.”

    Throughout the first game, the Huskies struggled to get much going as the Wildcats easily downed them, 25-11.

  • Conifer volleyball places fifth...

    By Alissa Noe 

    DENVER — Conifer volleyball may not have had the greatest start to its 2017 season, but after finishing fifth out of six teams in the D’Evelyn Varsity Challenge on Saturday at D’Evelyn High School, it’s hoping it can finally break the mold.

  • EHS softball coach placed on...

    The Evergreen High School varsity softball coach has been put on administrative leave while district officials investigate a parent complaint of “unprofessional conduct involving students,” a district official said.

    “I have been put on administrative leave. It is completely unjustified,” coach Della Mitchel said in an e-mail statement to the Courier. “I am obtaining legal counsel to resolve this issue.”
