  • Holland takes 12th at state in...

    LOVELAND — Freshman Ben Holland, an Evergreen High student, placed 12th in the 100 backstroke, while Conifer’s boys swimming team had three top-15 finishes in relays at the 4A state championship May 22 at the Mountain Viee Aquatic Center.

    The 400 freestyle squad finished ninth, the 200 medley team took 10th, and the 200 freestyle was 15th.

  • Wet weather may bring new birds...

    The snow falls in big fat globs of collected flakes. Wet and sticky, it is collecting rapidly on trees, shrubs and what few perennial herbaceous plants have had the nerve to put forth new shoots already.

    It is May, and one would expect to see May flowers blooming, but alas, they are not. At least they are not blooming in any numbers. This is our seventh month of winter, and I am not happy to see more snow falling. However, such weather is expected in springtime Colorado where cold arctic air bumps into warm Gulf Coast air fairly regularly.

  • Evergreen track team shattering...

     

          Bryn Haebe didn’t know why. Maybe it really was the running gods that told Rob Wright to alter what up to this point had been a pretty successful season for Evergreen High School’s girls 4x800 relay team.

  • Longmont’s 7-run 8th...

     

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — Tom Aramovich always smiles when he’s on the mound. No matter if the bases are loaded and the odds are stacked against his team Aramovich, the senior pitcher from Evergreen High School, seems to keep smiling.

    But after his team lost to Longmont on May 15 by a 12-7 score in eight innings, Aramovich’s smile wasn’t so bright.

  • Lewis-Palmer’s first-...

    MONUMENT — Kourtney Guetlein scored a pair of first-half goals and assisted on another as top-seeded Lewis-Palmer scored a 4-2 victory over Evergreen in the second round of the 4A girls soccer tournament on May 15.

  • Spring beauties signal season...

    It is a lovely May morning. A half-inch of sugar snow covers the rapidly greening world like frosting on a cake. The sky is blue, the sun is out and the snow is already melting.

    Branches, twigs and leaves are dripping diamonds. It is a glorious sight to behold, refreshing to smell the damp earth and exhilarating to hear the spring medley of migrating birds at the feeder and the burbling music of Little Cub Creek in the valley below.

  • Cougars upbeat about future in...

    LAKEWOOD – The Evergreen Cougars girls lacrosse team had a tough end to the season. They went 0-9 in league play and lost their final nine games overall, including a 16-6 loss to Golden on May 8 at Trailblazer Stadium.

    But head coach Alyssa Trudel and her team are focusing on the smaller victories that maybe aren’t in the standings.

    So what if the Cougars trailed 12-1 at the half to Golden. Evergreen didn’t quit, and it came out strong in the second half, outscoring the Demons 5-4.

  • Evergreen’s Spinzig...

    ARVADA – Evergreen High golfer Christina Spinzig shot a 9-over 81 on May 10, good enough for fifth place at the 4A Metro West girls golf tournament at West Woods Golf Course.

    The finish qualified her for the 4A state tournament to be held at Cobble Creek Golf Course in Montrose on May 24-25.

    Spinzig was also named MVP for the 4a Jeffco league.

    Teammates Lauren Jagels and Aslinn Scott just missed the cut. Jages finished with a 95 and Scott a 96. The cutoff for state was 92.

    Sophomore Jennifer Butler, in her first regional, shot a 122.

  • Cougars benefit from CHS&...

    CONIFER -- Ethan Murphy swung his bat, and what could have been a snowball sailed through the fog in the seventh inning and landed on the other side of the fence in center field.

    You had to be a little jealous of Murphy. Not only did the Evergreen junior catcher punctuate the Cougars’ 17-7 victory May 6 over the rival Lobos, but he also got to run around the bases and stay warm.

  • Looking forward to International...

    This coming Saturday, May 8, is International Migratory Bird Day, which will be celebrated locally at the Evergreen Nature Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    International Migratory Bird Day is a celebration of one of the most spectacular events in the world, the annual migration of birds. The day officially takes place on the second Saturday in May every year in most of the United States. However, it is celebrated at different times in different places due to the variation in migration.
