    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen’s boys basketball team flew into the 4A Jeffco League’s version of the Bermuda Triangle on a five-game winning streak. A search party isn’t necessary, but the Cougars could use a resuscitator after consecutive games against Valor Christian, Golden and D’Evelyn.
    The trio — two among the top seven-ranked teams in 4A and the other on the periphery of the top 10 — routed Evergreen by a combined 86 points.

    The Evergreen Lady Cougars lost their home game in triple overtime against D’Evelyn, 65-59, on Jan. 23 at Evergreen High School.
    Four Evergreen starters scored in the double figures. Annie Trimarco led the pack with 15 points, followed by Sam Kisiel’s 13 points. Sophomores Lauren Russell and Logan Newhall each scored 10.
    The game went into the second half tied at 19-all. Evergreen upped its play in the second half as Trimarco ran the ball inside and everyone played more aggressively.

  • Numbers game rolls Cougars’ way

    ARVADA ­— Winning is nice, and Evergreen’s girls swim team does its fair share of that. But it’s the sheer number of swimmers that the Lady Cougars put in the finals that shows why they have been so successful in recent years.

    Winter is always a good time to look for rabbit tracks in the snow. There are two rabbits that can be seen in this area and a third that can be seen farther afield in Colorado.

    Cougars place 14th at annual Evergreen Invitational
    The Evergreen Cougars placed 14th in their annual Evergreen Invitational on Jan. 17 with 17 points. The event was held at Evergreen High School.

    The Cougars had one sixth-place finisher as Lane Hanson went 3-2 at 120 pounds. He scored a 9-3 decision in the first round over Kyle Smart of Fossil Ridge before falling in the quarterfinals to Juan Rosales of Lincoln by a 9-5 score. 

  • EHS perseveres despite foul...

    CONIFER — Evergreen girls basketball coach Amy Bahl has said that for her team to be successful, it needs contributions from all five players on the court at that time. 

    So when leading scorer Sam Kisiel picked up two quick fouls early in the third quarter Jan. 14 at Conifer High School, giving her four for the game, it may have been a good thing for the Lady Cougars. It forced them to play more as a team instead of relying on the 5-foot-11 junior’s scoring presence in the paint.

  • Cougars keep Lobos’ offense in...

    CONIFER — A lot has gone the Conifer Lobos’ way lately. Eric Valerio’s boys basketball team — the same program that ended last year with a win over rival Evergreen — had started a school-best 8-0 and was previously ranked No. 10 in CHSAA’s 4A poll.

     But Jan. 14, the Lobos were hosting Evergreen, a team flying under the radar a bit thus far in the 2014-15 season and one that was excited to show what it could do.

    It did quite well for itself as evident of its 60-52 win at Conifer High School.

  • Northern shrikes are prolific...

    If you are riding around this area on a nice winter day and see a lone black-and-white bird perched on a fence or utility line, it is probably a shrike.

    The question is, “Which one?” because there are two species of shrikes that occur in different parts of our state at different times of the year. Shrikes are interesting birds that scientists have had trouble placing in the system of birds ever since they were first observed.

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen’s defensive game plan was single-minded: Put Fritts on the fritz.
