  • Elmgreen, Lady Cougars charge...

    Emily Elmgreen wasn’t about to take credit for her career-high 33 points. Instead, the Evergreen senior deferred the accolades to her teammates, who drove the lane before dishing the ball off to her. That’s why she went off for 24 points in the second half in the host Lady Cougars’ 67-45 girls basketball conquest of Conifer on Jan. 24.
    “(They) were cluttering up the defense, and it left me wide open. I had plenty of time” to get her feet set and square up for shots, Elmgreen said.

  • EHS’ defensive pressure keeps...

    One could point to Evergreen’s nine different scorers or a game-opening 11-0 run as to why the Cougars controlled from start to finish in a 61-32 thumping of rival Conifer on Jan. 24 at Evergreen High School.

  • Remembering Clarence, a Capitol...

    There are people we encounter in life who achieve notoriety and influence beyond what any reasonable person would expect. Clarence Miller, who passed away last week at the age of 64, was one of those people.

  • Differentiating between crows,...

    This past week has brought us more spring-like weather with temperatures in the high 50s and the melting of what little snow we had left. Once more, my feeders are deserted by the juncos, which obviously prefer seeds that they can find in the fields to what I offer them at the feeders. They do eat the white proso millet when the fields are covered with snow.

    Hot-shooting Olson propels D’Evelyn past host Evergreen

    Rachel Olson scored a game-high 19 points, which included five 3-pointers, as visiting D’Evelyn pulled away in the second half for a 68-40 victory over Evergreen on Jan. 17.
    Malia Shappell added 12 points and 10 players in all scored the Lady Jaguars (9-3, 4-0 4A Jeffco), who remained tied atop the league standings with Green Mountain.

  • Divers Mills, Lewis pave the way

    ARVADA — Bailey Mills and Katrin Lewis may be only 10th-graders, but they’re already making a name for themselves on the diving platform for the Evergreen Lady Cougars. They did so again Jan. 18 at the Jeffco Invitational, placing second and third respectively in the 1-meter diving competition at George J. Meyers Pool.
    Mills finished with 386.35 points, and Lewis scored 377.7. They were tops among 4A competitors in the meet. Chatfield’s Averly Hobbs won going away with 452.4 points.

  • Cougars searching for the right...

    Every time Joseph Brody walks onto the mat, he’s at a disadvantage. That’s not too difficult, considering the Evergreen freshman weighs all of 95 pounds soaking wet and is wrestling 106-pounders.

  • Starlings showing up at feeders

    Every winter, I receive a phone call or letter from someone, asking about the strange beautiful bird at a feeder. Apparently, the unusually cold weather gives starlings the drive to investigate feeders, and many people see them for the first time during the cold days of winter.

  • Cougars can’t catch up to Rams

    LAKEWOOD — The opportunity was there for the taking. Evergreen junior Marcus Cassin willed in a driving layup with 2 minutes, 49 seconds left in the third quarter to cut the Green Mountain lead to three. But that would be as close as the Cougars would get as the host Rams sealed a 50-38 victory with a 21-12 game-ending run on Jan. 10 at Green Mountain High School.

  • Rams rally, hold off Lady Cougars

    LAKEWOOD — Intensity. Aggressiveness. Focus. Domination.
    This was the recipe for success as the Evergreen girls basketball team tangled with Green Mountain in the Lady Rams’ gym on Jan. 10. The only problem is that the game has four quarters, not one.
    Evergreen senior Emily Elmgreen lit up the scoreboard with 19 points in the first half; however, it was not enough as Green Mountain rallied for a narrow 54-51 victory.
