    Evergreen finished with 37 points to easily top Jeffco rival D’Evelyn, which finished second with 73 points.

    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.

    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.

  • Students, dignitaries dedicate...

    Bergen Valley students and faculty, along with a couple dozen local, county and state dignitaries, celebrated on Oct. 9 the completion of the NEAT trail, a 10-year project that helps children get to school more safely.

    NEAT — North Evergreen Activity Trails — is a nonprofit that set out in 2002 to find the money to build a sidewalk that links Evergreen Middle School and Bergen Meadow Elementary with the Bergen Park shopping area and Bergen Valley. The 2-mile project has been built in five segments since 2006 and cost nearly $950,000.

  • Birders hope winter will be good...

    As autumn arrives, all birders across the northern states begin to wonder if it will be a good finch winter. This is not just wishful thinking. It is based on the fact that for many years, some winters have produced large numbers of northern finches in the northern states, and some years, they have extended much further south along the Appalachian Mountains.

  • Reminiscing about first snowfalls

    Last Friday, Oct. 4, we all awoke to find a cold wet snow had covered our evergreens and golden aspen with inches of white. It was beautiful but brought an abrupt end to summer. It also brought back memories to me of other first snows.
