  • Conifer tennis downs Standley...


    WESTMINSTER — After a slow start to its season, the Conifer High School boys tennis team has picked up steam in its last two matches, including a 7-0 sweep at Standley Lake High School on Monday afternoon.

  • Learning to fly – fish that is

    “There’s no sensation to compare with this. Suspended animation, a state of bliss.” — Pink Floyd, lyrics from “Learning to Fly.”

    Pink Floyd may not have written “Learning to Fly” about fly-fishing, but plenty of anglers partially submerged in the frigid waters of Colorado rivers would happily describe the sport as definitely imparting “a state of bliss.”

  • PCHS finishes fourth in Husky...


    BAILEY — Following a short lightning delay to start off the evening, Platte Canyon High School’s Husky Invitational on Thursday was another big success as schools from all over the front range and local mountain towns came out to compete on the scenic cross country course that runs alone Rosalie Road.

    Of the various teams that attended, Platte Canyon finished fourth overall with 88 points behind DSST Stapleton, Clear Creek and Pinnacle.

  • Lobos soccer drops Summit game...


    Throughout the soccer match at Conifer High School on Thursday, the Lobos showed true grit against their Summit High School competition, but it wasn’t enough to get the job done as they fell to the Tigers, 2-1, in a sudden-death double overtime.

  • Conifer softball outswings...


    The bats were swinging hard on both sides in perhaps the biggest rivalry game of the young softball season as Evergreen High School and Conifer High School sparred in Conifer on Tuesday, Aug. 29, but Conifer emerged victorious, 20-9, after it invoked the mercy rule on Evergreen.

    With the rule, the game ended in the bottom of the sixth inning with only one out.

  • In the dark with the eclipse
  • Conifer High School cross...

    DENVER — The only way Conifer’s start to the 2017 cross country season would have been better is if the Lobo boys and girls had finished second and first with Jeffco League rival D’Evelyn in the fields.

    The Jaguar hosts, who compete with Conifer at the 3A level in the sport, stepped up to Division I (big schools) for the D’Evelyn Dash on Saturday, leaving Division II (small schools) open for the Lobos to dominate.

    Which they did, with the exception of the SkyView Academy boys.

  • EHS softball loses in de facto...

    The Evergreen High School softball team started out its season in a rough way, losing its first official game after the Cougars’ game the day before was canceled. But, after dropping Thursday’s contest to Fairview High School in Evergreen, there are plenty of positives to look forward to throughout the rest of the season.

    “It’s our first game and I’ve got six transfers, so they haven’t worked together before,” head coach Della Mitchel said. “This is kind of to be expected.”

  • Johnson named CU’s new director...

    For the past 13 years, Evergreen resident Mark Johnson has morphed into the voice of the University of Colorado Buffaloes, calling games and conducting interviews for KOA radio. Now, after severing ties with the radio station, he’s been named the director of audio broadcasting for CU athletics.

  • A day of tri-ing for a good cause

    Buchanan Rec Center was inundated with close to 200 kids participating in the eighth annual Evergreen Kids Triathlon on Sunday.

    They biked, ran and swam their way to fitness, all while raising money for the Evergreen Park & Recreation District’s Special Needs Program. This year, the event raised $4,725 from registration fees.

    Families come from around the metro area to participate in the event, which is low-key because no one keeps track of times, and all of the kids are encouraged to participate.
