  • ‘One, two, three, Spencer’

    LAKEWOOD — It was more than just a moment of team solidarity. When the Evergreen Cougars returned from the locker room at Trailblazer Stadium on Sept. 9 at halftime of their game with host Alameda, one by one the players kneeled on the sideline, huddled with the coaches and said their peace.
    “One, two, three, Spencer,” the Cougars said.

  • Lady Cougars pull away from host...

    DENVER — Natalie Elmgreen will tell you she was just trying to do her job. Well, the Evergreen shortstop did that quite well on Sept. 8 at Thomas Jefferson.
    Elmgreen went 3-for-3 and drove in three runs — two with a seventh-inning triple — as the Lady Cougars pulled away for a 7-3 victory.

  • Perry, Cougars have solid showing

    Senior Ashley Perry won two events and took second in another, leading undefeated Evergreen to a seven-point victory at the Columbine Invitational.

    “She is a great addition to our team,” Evergreen head coach Marnie Bello said. “Not only because of her talent, but because of her leadership, commitment, and hard work she brings to the table.”

  • Late tally lifts Cougars past...

    Maybe it wasn’t  bound to happen, even though Evergreen controlled much of the possession time in its season opener with Mullen at Evergreen High School. But Scott Boland certainly was in the right place at the right time.
    The Cougars senior punched home an Ethan Jackson rebound in the 73rd minute and Evergreen opened the 2011 season with a 1-0 victory over Mullen, avenging a loss in last year’s season opener.
    “We had a really hard shot at the keeper. He couldn’t control it and it came right back out,” Boland said.

  • Skold, Cougars off and running

    AURORA — Sammy Skold wasn’t trying to make a statement, so the Evergreen junior said. She was just getting back into the rhythm of running cross county, but her third-place finish at the Lori Fitgerald Pre-State Invitational would say otherwise.
    Skold’s season-opening time of 19 minutes, 39.41 seconds at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds on Sept. 3 was only topped by Canon City freshman Aubrey Till (19:02.40) and Discovery Canyon senior Allie Morgan (19:33.24) in the 4A girls race.
