  • Cougars beat the clock, Wizards

    Griffin Dorsey was on such an emotional high after Evergreen’s thrilling, almost unbelievable 3-2 victory over Windsor on Oct. 23 that he didn’t want to come down. Who could blame him?
    The Cougars freshman scored an improbable, if not impossible, goal with 2 seconds remaining to send the host Evergreen High crowd into a frenzy mere seconds after the 4A boys soccer state playoff opener seemed destined to go into overtime.

  • Evergreen girls earn top-10...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Camille Morales said that she couldn’t have said it any better, but it’s seemingly true when it comes to Evergreen High School cross country. It’s not about the individuals as much as it’s about the program itself.
    That truth has never been more so than it was in 2013.

  • Check out scrub-jays at Red...

    One of our most interesting birds is the western scrub-jay. This bird is not regularly found in Evergreen, but it is found in Kittredge and in Red Rocks Park. It is not a forest bird, but it is a bird of the scrub-land area. You can tell if you are in good jay country just by looking at the shrub growth. It can be found regularly in the scrub oak along the road, which is the Morrison entrance to Red Rocks Park.

  • Campers should watch out for...

    While my family was here to celebrate my birthday, I had the opportunity to visit Echo Lake. We drove up for one last trip before snow puts an end to our mountain driving in hopes of showing my family the beautiful aspen gold of our autumn.

    A common theme prevailed for Chatfield, Columbine and Evergreen’s top gymnasts at the 5A/4A Jeffco League championships on Oct. 19 at Evergreen High School: good but there’s room for improvement heading into this week’s regionals and the following week’s state meets.

  • Cougars, Demons fit to be tied...

    ARVADA — It took a while — a good while — but Evergreen gave itself the chance it needed.

  • Evergreen girls, boys win...

    LITTLETON — Caitlin Schmitt and Cat Moss finished second and third, respectively, and Evergreen had four runners in the top seven as the Lady Cougars won the 4A Region 1 cross country championship on Oct. 17 at deKoevend Park.
    Evergreen finished with 37 points to easily top Jeffco rival D’Evelyn, which finished second with 73 points.
    The Evergreen boys, who had four runners finish in consecutive order from eighth through 11th, also won a team regional championship with 60 points. Ponderosa was second with 88.

    The Evergreen volleyball team began last week walking on air, poised to finish off an unbeaten season in 4A Jeffco League play and carry that momentum into this week’s conference tournament.
    Instead, the Lady Cougars fell back to earth and dropped to the No. 3 seed with a pair of losses, beginning with a potentially demoralizing 3-0 road loss to Green Mountain on Oct. 8 that clinched a second-straight regular-season league championship for the Lady Rams.

  • Cougars finally top Jags

    LAKEWOOD — The Evergreen Cougars dealt with the adversity throughout the entire week. Leading up to the most important game of the year Oct. 12 against D’Evelyn, the Cougars knew the Jaguars were going to be a formidable opponent who they were trying to defeat for the first time since 2004.
    And boy, did Evergreen ever deliver this time.

  • EHS sweeps cross-country titles

    LITTLETON – Postseason cross country runs go by the same mantra. It’s not the time that matters, but where you place that does. The Evergreen Cougars know that quite well after another 4A Jeffco League championship run Oct. 11 at Clement Park.
