  • Gutsy effort comes up short in...

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — To beat a great team twice is always a tall task, let alone on the road both times.

    However, Evergreen’s girls soccer team did everything in its power to pull off that mission May 14 at Valor Stadium in Highlands Ranch. The Cougars defeated Valor 3-2 on the Eagles’ home turf April 28 to propel Evergreen during an impressive home stretch of the regular season that included a tie against Class 4A Jeffco League champion Wheat Ridge.

    LAKEWOOD — No other Class 4A Jeffco girls soccer team matched Evergreen’s accomplishments against conference champion Wheat Ridge.

    During the Cougars’ regular-season finale May 4 at Lakewood Memorial Field, Evergreen (9-5-1 record, 6-2-1 in league) held the Farmers scoreless and managed a 0-0 tie in the process. On top of that, Evergreen clinched third place and one of the league’s four automatic berths in the 32-team state tournament.

    DENVER — D’Evelyn’s girls tennis program came up just short the last three seasons on grabbing a regional title.

    That trend changed May 6 at Colorado Academy in Denver. The Jaguars, Class 4A Jeffco League champions, edged the host Mustangs after falling short to Colorado Academy last season and Kent Denver the two previous seasons.

    LAKEWOOD — The opening pitch proved to be a bad omen for Evergreen with the driver’s seat on the line in the Class 4A Jeffco League baseball race for the conference title.

    Cougars’ ace Dane Kapande plunked Valor Christian leadoff batter Joel Pierce to begin the showdown April 27 at All Star Park in Lakewood. The first four Eagles reached base in the top of the first inning on the way to a two-run first inning and eventual 3-1 victory over Evergreen (9-5 record, 4-1 in league).

  • Rising from the abyss

    EVERGREEN — Much like waxing and waning moons, Evergreen’s boys swim team has a long and somewhat muddled past, only allowing onlookers to see how brightly it shines when it’s in a particular phase.

  • Near no-hitter for Kapande

    DENVER — Image if the slider was working for Evergreen senior pitcher Dane Kapande on April 23 at D’Evelyn Junior/Senior High School.

    Kapande could have very well thrown a no-hitter in the Class 4A Jeffco League game against D’Evelyn. Instead, the Cougars’ ace had to settle for a 5-0 victory throwing 6 and 2/3 innings, giving up two hits while striking out 14 batters.
