    (Reprinted from July 28, 2010)

    Although spring migration has long been over, we had a bit of excitement in the yard this week.

    The house wrens have long been nesting in a swallow box on the supporting post of the front porch. In fact, they are feeding young. Although it is supposed to be a swallow box, the swallows have never had a chance to use it because the wrens arrive earlier and have already taken it over. They usually have eggs in the box by the time the violet-green swallows arrive. That was the case this year.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

    FORT COLLINS ­— Patrick O’Neil manned the center defense, like he did during the regular season for the Evergreen Cougars.

  • 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.

  • The facts about our water mammal...

    (Reprinted from July 16, 2008)

    A friend volunteering at the Evergreen Nature Center last week asked me about an odd water mammal called a nutria. It seems that a volunteer on the boardwalk has pointed out a muskrat to a group of visitors, and this person came into the center and informed the volunteer on duty that “those animals out there are not muskrats; I grew up in Louisiana, and they are nutria. I have seen enough nutria that I know what they look like.”

    Josh Brown allowed one run over five innings, while Dylan Patterson and Garrett Born had three hits each as Evergreen’s 15U squad beat Legacy 10-2 to win the Mert Letofksy summer tournament over the Fourth of July weekend.

    This is second time in three years that Evergreen’s 15U team has won the tournament. The Cougars scored wins over Chatfield (7-2), Columbine (7-3) and Arena Baseball (8-0) en route to the finals.
