    Jason Brown examined the steep climb up the 10 ½-foot wall, but this time it was different. This time, he had 8-year-old Sylvie Guerrant on his back.

    It wasn’t as if Brown was out to prove anything to himself. He’s done the climb time and again. After all he’s been a two-time American Ninja Warrior series competitor ­— in 2012 in Dallas and this year in Oklahoma City.

  • Cassin building toward a...

    At Evergreen High School, Marcus Cassin was used to building success on athletic fronts, in particular on the football field. Now the rising sophomore is building on a different front, working toward a career in construction as part of his studies at Colorado State University.

    The 2015 Canyon Courier male athlete of the year recently was accepted into construction business school at Colorado State. He’s been working an internship near Cherry Creek this summer. 

  • EHS preps for 2016 with camp,...

    Rob Molholm has a simple explanation for what the two-week football camp the Evergreen Cougars run at the end of July is all about.

    “What we look to do is try and get our system in,” said Molholm, the winningest coach in school history with a 54-23 record. “Some people and some assistants like to go away. When you go away, it’s just scrimmaging the whole time and you’re not really coaching your system. This is how we get our system installed.”

  • Morrow fitting in with the Pack

    Lindsay Morrow walked out onto the pool deck and the experience took her breath away. Now the 2015 Evergreen High School graduate and two-time Canyon Courier female athlete of the year has made that walk hundreds of times before. But this time it was different. This time it was in Omaha, Neb., home of the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.

    Brock Burke’s professional pitching career is slow-going, but that’s on purpose.

    The 2014 Evergreen High School graduate has yet to pitch a full season in the minor leagues, but that’s because for the third straight year he’s in a short-season league. This year, Burke’s pitching for the Rays’ Class A short-season Hudson Valley Renegades in the New York-Penn League.

    For the Courier

    It pays to know the competition in any endeavor. When Brian Folts noticed that Dan McIntosh and Gabriel Zumbado were not entered in the fifth annual Evergreen Sprint Triathlon, he liked his chances.

    A Golden resident and familiar face at the event, Folts was the runner-up to McIntosh last year and Zumbado in 2014. He also finished fourth when McIntosh won and Zumbaldo took third in 2013.

  • Malazdrewicz working her way back

    When Lexie Malazdrewicz graduated from Evergreen High School in 2013, she left as one of the most decorated swimmers in the state of Colorado.

    • A nine-time 4A state champion, including back-to-back 200- and 500-yard freestyle titles.

    • A 4A state record-setter in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle in her final season.

    • A 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials semifinalist in the 200-meter backstroke.

  • O’Neil, Fowler represent at all-...

    FORT COLLINS ­— Patrick O’Neil manned the center defense, like he did during the regular season for the Evergreen Cougars. It’s just this time he was doing so with a group of All-State teammates as part of the 2015-16 Colorado High School Soccer Coaches Association All-State game July 13 at French Field.

  • Prematurely born twins ready to...

    They say that good things come to those that wait, but that’s never been the style for 12-year-old twins Max and Nate Footer.

  • Bender finding his spot in net

    Jake Bender thinks it’s kind of funny how he ended up playing lacrosse — goalie at that. The 2013 Evergreen High School graduate was actually quite the skier. 

    When he was named the 2013 Canyon Courier Male Athlete of the Year, Bender won the state title in the slalom that season, a year after winning the giant slalom. He also helped the Cougars to an alpine state championship.
