  • Tenney cards 79 as EHS opens...

    As far as season openers go, the Elizabeth Invitational was a win-win for Evergreen’s girls golf program. For one, it’s been a long time coming that the Lady Cougars actually got to set foot on the Spring Valley Golf Course and play and, two, Madison Tenney is already playing at midseason form.

  • Evergreen struggles to find the...

    LAKEWOOD — Peter Jeans decided earlier in the week that his Evergreen Lady Cougars needed to work on finishing shot opportunities in the final third of the field, because getting finishes against a good team is really hard to do. They found that out against Green Mountain.

    Spring is certainly a confusing season in this area. March and April are supposedly spring months, but here in the foothills, it is a time of indecision.

    For the Courier
    You might call Evergreen’s season-opening 1-0 girls soccer triumph over Air Academy on March 6 poetic justice. But Kylee Petrik’s game-winning goal with 1 minute, 44 seconds remaining possessed all the artistry of a pulp-fiction writer.

  • PAC, SWARM are polar opposites

    LITTLETON — The similarities are there, especially in the physical nature between the sports, but as Greysen Lincoln points out, there’s one major difference between rugby and football.
    “It’s a lot more of an active sport. You’ve got to be a lot more aware. You have to know where all your guys are unlike in football,” Lincoln said. “It’s a lot more team-oriented. You’ve all got to be a cohesive unit. That’s also the case in football, but it’s a lot more apparent in rugby.”

  • New ranger seeking solutions to...

    As the newly hired park ranger for the Evergreen Park and Recreation District, Jason Garner says he plans to work with community residents to find solutions to issues that trouble them.

    “My goal is getting out there, making my presence known, so people have somebody to go to,” Garner said.

    By involving the community, problems in the parks can be reduced, he said.

    “Complaining, having issues, will only get you so far,” Garner said.

    Once more Evergreen Audubon has made some bluebird and chickadee nest boxes for sale. The sale this year will be held on Saturday, March 8, beginning at 9 a.m. at the King Soopers in Bergen Park and in Conifer. If you need bird boxes, this is the time to buy them. They will be available until they are all sold, so get there early. If no one is there selling boxes, they are sold out.

    Senior Lucas Weidner led Evergreen (11-13) with 15 points. Junior James Morrato added eight and senior Jack Curtis scored seven. Evergreen had reached the Sweet 16 the past two seasons, but graduated four of its top five scorers from the 2012-13 season and five seniors in all.

  • Cougars’ reserves disarm Wizards

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Emily Elmgreen was in foul trouble; so was Samantha Kisiel. Not to worry, though: Evergreen had plenty of backup — namely, Annie Trimarco and Hannah Orr.
    Trimarco, a starter, and Orr, back after missing two weeks due to a concussion, scored 12 and 11 points, respectively, to help the fifth-seeded Lady Cougars thwart fourth-seeded Windsor 42-32 on Feb. 28 at Sand Creek High School.
