  • Farmers show why they're No...

    Wheat Ridge — For three innings, the eighth-ranked Evergreen Cougars had No. 1 Wheat Ridge looking pretty pedestrian on April 20.

    The Cougars scored in every inning and were up 4-0 thanks largely to a two-run double by Ethan Murphy and some solid small ball. But with a dream upset starting to materialize, the Cougars found themselves taken out to the proverbial woodshed in the top of the fourth.

  • Young Cougars fall to Demons

    On a blustery afternoon better suited for kite flying or sailing than any sport involving a ball, the Evergreen Cougars bravely took to the tennis court to face the Golden Demons.

  • Trumpeter swans appear on Squaw...

    If you were driving up Squaw Pass Road recently and nearly had an accident because you thought you saw three swans on the second pond in Noble Meadow, have no fear: You are not flipping out. There really are three swans on the pond.

  • Forbes headed east to B.C.

    For her abilities on the golf course, Evergreen’s Chance Forbes has been afforded the opportunity to play on some great courses across the country.

    Her skill is now affording  her the opportunity to go to college.

    Forbes recently committed to Boston College, where she will join the Eagles’ Division I golf team in the fall.

  • Evergreen blanked by Pomona

    ARVADA — Whiff.

    That pretty much sums up Evergreen’s 1-0 cross-classification defeat April 10 to the Pomona Panthers. The Cougars shot and shot and shot the ball but put just four tries – all of them pretty easy – on frame at the North Area Athletic Complex.

    “We just couldn’t finish,” junior co-captain Anya Kaufmann said.

    “Sometimes you can’t hit the broad side of a barn,” coach Whitney Walker said.

  • Haebe takes fourth at Runners...

    DENVER — The small and inexperienced did not fare well in the 3,200-meter run at the annual Runners Roost Invitational at Mullen High School. And they were easy to spot.

    Those unfortunate runners were either not leaning forward or just not strong enough to compensate when they made the turn to the south on the track and ran smack into the wall of wind April 11.

  • Continuing to build

    The Evergreen girls lacrosse team now knows how David must have felt when he got his first glimpse of Goliath.

    In its April 11 game against the Columbine Rebels, the Cougars were prepared for a fight with their slings (crosses) and stones (balls) at the ready. But for the Cougars (1-8, 0-4 Jeffco League) there would be no victory, proverbial or otherwise, against the colossal Rebels (10-0, 6-0 Jeffco League) who scored six goals in the first five minutes of the game, then cruised to an easy 19-0 win.

  • Bill’s Bench coming in...

    The ice went out of Evergreen Lake faster this year than I have ever seen before. One day it was honeycombed, with a few openings along the north and west shore, and the next day it was all open. The long spell of warm weather had weakened the ice, and a windy morning set up water movement, and the ice began to break up fast. By midafternoon the lake was free of ice from shore to shore. It was good to see the open water and a chop on the lake, even though the wind was bitter cold. I stopped by again the next day, and once more the cold wind sent me scurrying home to sit by a fire.

  • Evergreen Newspapers' all-...

    With March Madness now officially over, the calendar says we must spring forward.

    But, before we dive head-first into baseball season, let’s take a final look back at the prep basketball season.

    While no team in our coverage area won a state title, there were plenty of highlights along the way:

  • Cool-hand Kurt guided Cougars

    Kurt Dieter never broke anyone’s ankles this season with a nasty crossover dribble. If he did, he’s not telling anyone about it.

    He doesn’t bomb fadeaway 3-pointers and has yet to make a YouTube video of himself posterizing an opponent with a monster dunk.

    The Evergreen senior is not blazingly fast, doesn’t jump out of the gym and didn’t make anyone’s short list of hyped prospects this year.

    But when has all that ever been the sole judge of true talent?
