  • Northern shrikes are winter...

    Late winter brings strange weather into this area. This year, January brought much warmer weather than usual, giving everyone spring fever. February thus far has turned out to be colder than average and has brought back-to-back snowstorms with scarcely a break in between.
    The only thing that you can be positive about is that it will change. Whatever it is like at the moment, it probably won’t be the same 10 minutes from now or tomorrow. Usually our mornings dawn clear and bright because the skies often clear overnight, however, even that is not a certainty.

  • Cougars’ Kay, Karnath returning...

    Following is a list of Evergreen wrestlers who qualified for the 4A state wrestling tournament via their top-four finish at the Region 1 tournament Feb. 10-11 at Eagle Valley High School in Gypsum:

  • Lady Cougars escape Farmers in...

    Erin Dobey felt the pressure. How could she not.
    The Evergreen Lady Cougars had twice built a double-digit lead and twice watched it evaporate. The last time was a 14-point lead with 4 minutes, 44 seconds remaining in their 4A Jeffco League tournament quarterfinal game with Wheat Ridge on Feb. 13 at Evergreen High School.
    What once looked to be an insurmountable lead had dwindled to one point with Dobey at the foul line shooting one and a bonus with 4.5 seconds left.

  • Host Cougars commit Cardinal sin

    Scott Haebe couldn’t explain it.
    Maybe it was Elizabeth’s 2-3 zone defense. Maybe it was the play of freshman Jake Gavitt. Maybe, just maybe, it was Evergreen looking ahead instead of focusing on the task at hand. Whatever it was it wasn’t good for the Cougars.

  • National signing day

    "When Keenan (Prouty) and I went up to visit everybody was so nice to us. The campus was perfect. It seemed like a perfect fit for me," said Ansley, who will switch from quarterback to slot receiver.

  • Running through the lore of...

    The greater roadrunner, which has been seen for the past few months at Dinosaur Ridge, has been an interesting visitor.
    Although they are regular residents in the southeast corner of Colorado, they seldom go north of that. They are essentially desert birds and are found all across the desert Southwest. That little corner of our state is the only place where they apparently have traditionally felt at home.

    Josh Conroy added 13 points as the Cougars (13-6, 8-2 4A Jeffco League) won for the fifth time in six games.

  • Cougars’ 9 wins can’t stop D’...

    ARVADA — Despite winning nine events, the Evergreen girls swimming team couldn’t dethrone powerhouse D’Evelyn in the Class 4A Jeffco League swimming championships.
    With last week’s massive snowstorm postponing the preliminary heats a day until the morning of Feb. 4, it was long day of swimming at George J. Meyers pool.

  • Returning Kay hauls in Jeffco...

    LAKEWOOD — Jake Kay, Evergreen’s junior 120-pounder who returned to the mat after missing four weeks with a separated right shoulder, went 3-0 and won the 4A Jeffco League wrestling championship Feb. 4 at Bear Creek High School.
    Kay, wrestling in round-robin competition, scored the Cougars’ lone championship with his victory over Josh Shipley of Wheat Ridge.
    Senior Josh Karnath placed second at 220 pounds, finishing 2-1 in round-robin action. His only loss came to eventual champion Dwight Howes of Arvada.

  • Lobos keep bragging rights

    EVERGREEN — Andrew Wolf had never scored a varsity win in 13 previous opportunities. He had yet to wrestle varsity this season for Conifer. But given a chance Feb. 2 at Evergreen High School against the rival Cougars, he wasted little time.
    Wolf’s pin of Thad Yeatts in 46 seconds — the fastest match of the night — was one of three head-to-head victories for the Lobos in a 48-30 victory in the Power Cup showdown.
