  • Goal better late than never for...

    LAKEWOOD — Zoe Peterson knew how important the goal would be.
    After all, the Evergreen Lady Cougars were just 2-3, but a win over D’Evelyn on April 5 at Lakewood Memorial Field would do more than bring her team back to .500. It hopefully would go a long way in determining the pecking order in the 4A Jeffco League.

  • Focused Lady Cougars hold serve...

    CONIFER — Katherine Hardy didn’t want to play a third set. Up in sets 1-0, but facing double set point in a tiebreak of the second set, it looked like she might have to.
    Hardy, though, survived the two set points and came back to win the tiebreak 9-7, securing her match 6-2, 7-6 over Conifer’s Kirstin Hafeman in the No. 1 singles battle. The win helped propel the Lady Cougars to the team victory over host Conifer by a score of 6-1 on April 4.

  • A pipeline toward success:...

    It was 1992 when Rob Wright first stepped foot onto the campus of Adams State University in Alamosa. The distance runner from Belen High School in New Mexico gravitated toward the Division II powerhouse because of its rich history.
    “They’ve always had a great history of taking average, above-average distance runners and turning them into national champions, All-Americans,” Wright said.

  • Migrant birds, including fox...

    It is late at night as I try to write this. I must try to get this article finished so the good people at the newspaper can put it in the next issue. This has been a strange week with weather warmer than usual, mostly cloudy, spring-like days and clear nights with gillions of stars.

  • Elusive Townsend’s solitaires...

    We moved into this house on April 19, 1965. That’s nearly 48 years ago, but many of you may recall the article I wrote about trying to find a pygmy owl that we heard calling that first night.

    Unfortunately, I do not hear pygmy owls calling as much as I used to. Their call is much more often heard than the owls are seen, for these tiny owls can disappear in a clump of pine needles or other foliage, and they are ventriloquists. They are not where you think they are.

    Evergreen’s Tenney cards 88 as Lady Cougars take 3rd in opener
    GOLDEN
    — Madison Tenney carded a team-best score of 88 as the Evergreen Lady Cougars opened the 2013 season with a third-place finish in the 4A Jeffco League opener March 19 at Applewood Golf Course.
    Tenney, a junior, placed fourth individually.
    Evergreen’s Emily Rivers fired a 100, Kelsey Evezich shot a 110, while Hanna Esau and Carly Ratekin carded a 119 each.

  • Wind challenges EHS’ serve, but...

    ARVADA — For someone who has played doubles her entire career, it’s uncharted territory for Genevieve DeGrandchamp to play No. 2 singles for the Evergreen Lady Cougars. It’s a little weird, she said — but she’s fitting in just fine so far in 2013.

  • Experience pays off for Cougars

    The fact that it was a varsity game and that it counted in the 4A Foothills Conference league standings wasn’t lost on the Evergreen Cougars. But this was the Cougars’ junior varsity boys lacrosse program that was playing Clear Creek’s varsity on March 20.

  • Ball bounces Lady Eagles’ way in...

    LAKEWOOD — Kayla Latham figured it was just a matter of time before the Dakota Ridge Lady Eagles would score. When they did — and, incidentally, it was on a goal by her — it was the momentum shift they needed in the South Jeffco Invitational.
