  • Melton rose to the occasion

    One of the better football players in the state would rather be playing baseball.

    Andrew Melton isn’t afraid to admit that. And a lot of opposing coaches in Class 4A probably wished he never ran the ball this year for the Dakota Ridge Eagles.

  • Winter cottonwoods and a new...

    The first day of winter certainly lived up to its name. It has been snowy and cold — very cold for so early in the season. The good news is that the winter solstice marks the shortest day of the year. From now on, each day grows a bit longer until the spring equinox brings equal days and nights, the official beginning of spring.

  • Cougars edge Wildcats in OT

    LAKEWOOD – Due to the general parity in Class 4A hoops and their own streakiness, the Evergreen Cougars figure to be in a lot of close games this season.

    They finally figured out how to win one Dec. 12.

  • Cougars clip Lobos at finish line

    If you’ve ever wanted to know what life was like for the Beatles, just stick around for the next Evergreen and Conifer girls swim meet.

    “You get 60 to 70 girls together and it’s pretty loud,” Cougars coach Jeanne Godaire said.

    The usual din was raised to a deafening roar Dec. 11 when the teams entered the final event with Conifer leading by two points. The Cougars responded by placing first and third in the 400-yard freestyle relay to defeat the Lobos 92-88 at the Evergreen Recreation Center.

  • Evergreen pins down Englewood in...

    Colby Fisher let the Englewood Pirates know exactly how they were going to be treated on Dec. 11.

    The Evergreen 135-pound wrestler trailed nearly the entire match before he discovered a burst of reserve energy to score a four-point move at the end of regulation. Fisher attacked in overtime, scoring a quick takedown for an 8-6 decision.

    No matter what the Pirates did in their Class 4A Jefferson County League dual, the Cougars found the right counter and enough gas in the tank to do it.

  • Exclusive: Sellers steps down...

    Evergreen is in the market for a new football coach.

    Mike Sellers, who manned the position for the past six years, recently announced he was stepping down from his post as he looks to return to school to pursue completion of a master's degree in education.

    "I've been involved with football since I was eight-years-old," said Sellers, who also cited spending more time with his family as a factor in his decision. "It's hard to walk away but I thought this was the best time to do it."

  • Cougars hold on, top Wolves in OT

    All of the earmarks of a young and inexperienced team were there Dec. 5.

    Players tried, and often failed, to dribble through double teams.

    People frequently ask me how I became so interested in the outdoors. I was fortunate in having an amazing mother who encouraged all of us to follow our interests. She and I had an especially close rapport, since she had been a biology teacher.
