  • Oakes named EHS female athlete...

    Choosing this year’s Evergreen High School Female Athlete of the Year likely wasn’t a difficult decision for the selection committee.

    Tricia Oakes not only dominated on the hardwood, where she helped guide the Cougars to a berth in the Sweet 16 of the Class 4A state tournament, but she excelled on the softball diamond as well.

    The Colgate-bound Oakes was humbled by the honor.

  • Never look back

    MORRISON — Monica Bascio never asks the question that others often pose to her.

    Nope. She’s too busy living in the now to think about what might have been.

    That’s not to say that the events of 16 years ago don’t shape her life. They do — just perhaps not in the ways one would expect.

  • Bicycle race, with a twist

    MORRISON — “I want to ride my bicycle.

    I want to ride my bike.

    I want to ride my bicycle.

    I want to ride it where I like.”

    -Queen, “Bicycle Race”

    That catchy 1978 tune could’ve easily been running through the minds of any of the competitors that converged on Bear Creek Lake Park on June 6.

  • Trailblazer Stadium undergoing...

    Natural beauty has its limitations. Trailblazer Stadium is no different.

    The stadium, located in Lakewood, is undergoing a $1 million upgrade this summer and will become the first Jefferson County district field with a synthetic surface when it reopens August 28.

    Now she realizes just how many other people’s hearts she has touched.

    Evergreen girls golf coach Mike Kuzava felt like something was missing.


  • Cougars start summer season off...

    Baseball is full of unique terms and acronyms such as the somewhat dubious PTBNL – player to be named later.

  • Evergreen athletes kick off...

    LAKEWOOD — Sometimes people need a small reminder that life is good.

  • Conifer boys take fourth at...

    Losing a two-time state champion diver figured to have quite an effect on the Conifer boys swim team.

    Fortunately for the Lobos, and unfortunately for the teams they competed against, the lack of a diver on this year’s squad only helped to fortify the rest of the ranks.

  • Mountain Lax Jam attracts...

    Dan Hesson came for the lacrosse, but he stayed for the pizza.

    Hesson, who coaches the varsity boys lacrosse team for Cheyenne Central High School in Wyoming, drove 127 miles this past weekend to lead his team against a host of unknown competition in the third annual Mountain Lax Jam.
