  • Bears springing into action...

    By Christie Greene

    Last fall, as the days grew shorter and the sun moved lower in the sky, the bears listened to their instincts and began eating, really eating, up to 20,000 calories a day. As their foods sources dwindled and the temperatures began to sink, they ambled into the woods to make a den.

    In the meantime, we adjusted our clocks, made soup and readied the snowblowers. While we settled in front of the fire with a book, the thick-coated, fat-laden bruins curled up inside cozy dens and began living off their acquired fat stores. 

  • Evergreen tops Eagle Valley in...

    LAKEWOOD — For the fourth consecutive game, the Evergreen baseball team eclipsed the 10-run mark, and for the fourth consecutive game, the Cougars were victorious.

    Powered by 14 hits, Evergreen defeated Eagle Valley 15-0 Saturday afternoon at All-Star Park.

  • Lobos drop third straight

    GOLDEN — After winning its season opener, the Conifer baseball team dropped its third-straight game in a 10-0 loss to Golden on Thursday night.

    Trailing 1-0 entering the bottom half of the third inning, Golden delivered the dagger as Noah Mitchell hit a grand slam to give Golden a 6-0 lead.

    Six Lobos were able to record a hit, but that would be all the momentum Conifer could muster.

  • Aqua Cougars win big in Arvada

    Two meets against three Jeffco opponents to start the 2017 boys swimming season, and Evergreen coach Damon Garrison has no idea where his team stands in league competition.

  • Evergreen shut out by Chatfield...

    LITTLETON — If you can find a way to win the game, then the statistics usually aren’t as important. As was the case for the Lady Chargers as they defeated Evergreen 1-0 despite taking just two shots on goal in the win.

    The lone goal came off the foot of Chatfield senior Perry Hayman in the opening half of play.

    Evergreen had several chances but couldn’t find the back of the net in any of their seven shots on goal.

  • Evergreen blanks Conifer on...

    CONIFER -- Evergreen senior Sofia Weiner kicked off her final season with a solid performance in a 5-0 victory over rival Conifer on Thursday night at Lobo Field.
    With temperatures on the cool side, the Lady Cougars offense heated things up, firing off two shots in the game’s first three minutes.
    The Lady Cougars struck first in the 5th minute as Weiner intercepted a Conifer pass and powered a shot from 15 yards out past the Lady Lobos keeper and into the back of the net, giving Evergreen the early 1-0 advantage.

  • No. 1 Valor Christian tops No. 3...

    CONIFER --  Anytime you host the top ranked team in the state you are sure to draw a big time atmosphere. That was the case on Monday night as No.3 Conifer hosted No.1 Valor Christian in front of a packed stadium.
    Conifer hung in early, but lost their composure in the second half en route to a 20-10 loss.
    “It’s tough when you are tired late in the game,” said Conifer head coach Paul Taylor. “We lost our composure and it showed on the scoreboard and in the penalty box.”

  • Offense lifts Cougars past Lobos...

    CONIFER -- Good pitching and timely hitting can win you a lot of baseball games. Evergreen found that out Monday afternoon as it defeated rival Conifer 13-4 at Conifer High School.
    Jack Hudd took the mound with elements that usually haunt pitchers. With cold temperatures and high wind pitchers typically have a tough time staying in a good flow, but not Hudd. The right-hander made quick work of the Lobos in his four innings of work, giving up just two hits while fanning two. 

  • Evergreen girls basketball...

    DENVER — Keigan Drysdale, with tears in her eyes, walked to center court and clutched the 4A state girls basketball championship trophy.
    “It was insane. I never thought that we would be here. I would never have thought that I would be the only senior on a state championship-winning team, and I couldn’t have done it without my team,” Drysdale said. “The reason that we’re so good is because we all need each other. We all use each other. It’s not just one player. I can’t stop crying.”

  • Mountain community remembers...

    By Christie Greene

    Visitors to Chow Down Pet Supplies in Bergen Park may wonder why the store counter seems so wide and empty. Instinctively, we turn to the right, expecting to see two lethargic, lounging cats that were a fixture in the store for more than two decades. Butch and Sundance were a constant presence at the store, presenting lazy tummies and chins for obligatory scratches.
