  • 2015 boys soccer preview: A year...

    In 2014, the transfer of coaching power from Peter Jeans to Ross Fowler as the head varsity boys soccer coach at Evergreen High School was a smooth one.
    “It was a fairly easy transition for me. Our style of play and philosophy are fairly similar,” Fowler said. “There were some little changes, but we always want to be a possession-based team.”

  • 2015 boys tennis preview: EHS...

    Bob Greenman, Evergreen’s co-head boys tennis coach, has preached year in and year out that his players should go down the hill — meaning into Denver — to play in competitive tournaments during the off season. He sees that as a way for the Cougars to get better come time for the regular season.
    This year, those players listened, and the hope is that the experience will pay off.

  • 2015 softball preview: Mitchel...

    The opportunity presented itself, and Della Mitchel jumped at it. Now, the first-year Evergreen Lady Cougars’ varsity softball coach hopes to bring an element to the high school game that’s been missing, in her opinion.

  • Cougars return loaded talent...

    In 2014, three sophomores — Liam Short, Lenny Urbas and Mark Champine — and a freshman — Bridger Tenney — brought a sense of relief to the Evergreen Cougars’ boys golf program. Now it’s not like EHS hasn’t had its share of success in the past; it has. But last year was the first time in four years that the Cougars had qualified for the 4A state tournament as a team.

  • ‘I still dream of flying’

    “I used to dream about flying when I was a kid,” said Evergreen resident and IT specialist for the National Park Services Allen “Sparky” Sparks as he feeds the poles that give his hang glider shape through their narrow Dacron fabric opening.

  • Residents concerned about sport...

    Old Squaw Pass Road resident David Grasso is worried enough about sport shooting on public land near his home that he's thinking about moving.

    "I don't want to sit at my kitchen table and get hit by a bullet," Grasso told a reporter. "It's kind of dangerous here. I've lived here 40 years, and I've had it."

  • House finches, other species...

    Mid-August and instead of the lazy days of hot summer, it has been relatively warm days and good-sleeping cool nights. Sitting out in front of Elk Run Assisted Living, I watched two house finches bring their young to the feeder as well as seeing one adult American robin trying to find a place damp enough to provide one angleworm to feed his one youngster.

    Although nearly full size, the immature robin still sported enough speckles on his breast to identify him and to show his age as a young member of the thrush family.

  • Cougars use summer camp to focus...

    Rob Molholm may be a bit superstitious. After all, he is a high school football coach. Why else would the Evergreen High coach, entering his seventh season, put his team through its annual two-week camp, which ended July 31, even though the Cougars won’t start the regular season until Sept. 4 at Lewis-Palmer?

    “We’re not going to change things since it’s been working. Since 2010, we’ve been doing this camp,” Molholm said.

  • Krause repeats at Mt. Falcon 15K

    By Craig Harper, for the Courier

    MORRISON — Her 9-year-old daughter’s soccer schedule prevents Lindsay Krause from fulfilling a full schedule of races. But Krause has managed to squeeze in the last two Mt. Falcon 15K runs — the third and middle leg of the Evergreen Trail Racing Series — and she’s made the most of both opportunities.

  • Chase continues rowing success

    Kendall Chase continues to add to her rowing accolades. The Evergreen resident and University of California junior repeated at the U-23 world rowing championships on July 26 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, helping the United States to win the women’s four and eight titles for a second consecutive year.
