  • Evergreen Rotary plans musical...

    The Rotary Club of Evergreen has approved a $30,000 grant to install outdoor musical instruments at Stagecoach Park.

    Rotary member Kay LaMontagne championed the concept for the music park after seeing one in Moab, Utah, and becoming intrigued by the concept.

    After the Evergreen Park and Recreation District gives final approval for the project, about five instruments will be placed in a grassy area of the park along Highway 74, probably next spring.

  • Evergreen toppled by D’Evelyn on...

    DENVER — Giving up a deep home run over the left field fence to Evergreen junior Jessica Bellatti got D’Evelyn senior pitcher Allison Frantz fired up Oct. 4.

    Bellatti crushed a solo home run to start the top of the fourth inning on a cool Saturday morning on the Jaguars’ home field. The home run trimmed D’Evelyn’s lead to 4-1, but Frantz turned the mistake into a positive as the Jaguars went on to take a 10-1 victory.

  • Cougars to take swings at state

    Craig Harper - For the Courier

    EVERGREEN — Confidence won’t be lacking for Columbine’s Marcus Tait and Evergreen as they head to the Oct. 5 and 6 state golf championships.

     “I think I have a great chance of winning,” said Tait, the Rebels’ lone qualifier for the 5A tournament at Fort Collins Country Club.

  • Evergreen remains perfect

    LAKEWOOD — A sprawling kick save by Evergreen goalkeeper Jack Cardillo was a fitting exclamation mark to the Cougars’ fifth shutout victory of the season.

    Evergreen, top-ranked in the latest CHSAANow.com Class 4A boys soccer poll, improved to 7-0 overall and 3-0 in 4A Jeffco with a 2-0 victory over D’Evelyn on Sept. 28 at Lakewood Memorial Field.

  • Column: Passion for prep sports

    Dennis Pleuss - Sports Editor

    My days of being mistaken for a ball boy on the sidelines of a high school football game are long gone.

    However, my enthusiasm for covering prep sports has never faded. I jumped at the chance when presented with the opportunity to become the new sports editor at the Columbine Courier, High Timber Times, Canyon Courier and Clear Creek Courant. Telling stories of student-athletes, coaches and teams through the written word and photos is what I was born to do.

  • Evergreen’s Kline runner-up at...

    By Dennis Pleuss, Sports Editor

    LITTLETON — Fall has arrived on the calendar, but temperatures in the mid-80s faced the 48 cross country teams from across the state that took part in the 16th annual Dave Sanders Invitational.

  • Spectacular colors highlight...

    On Tuesday, Sept. 22, two friends took me on a trip over Boreas Pass. It was a delight.

    This has been one of my favorite trips for many years. It is nearby, covers some of the best mountain area and has great distant views of aspen. My late husband, Bill, and I used to go south on U.S. 285 to Como, then northwest over the pass to Breckenredige, have lunch there and then make a fast trip home over routes 9 and 70.

    This time we reversed this trip, going out on I-70, then south to Breckenridge, then going over the pass from west to east, then back home on U.S. 285.

  • Where the bears are — and how to...

    “We are in bear habitat,” said wildlife manager Ty Petersburg of Colorado Parks and Wildlife, speaking last Thursday at a meeting of the Evergreen Alliance for Sustainability.

    People who live in mountain areas need to be aware of the bruins' presence and take measures to keep a safe distance, Petersburg said.

    “Everyone wants to talk about saving the bears,” Petersburg said.

  • Cougars face rival Valor...

    Seems like every golf tournament they play, the Evergreen boys golfers are looking up at Valor Christian.

    The 4A Jeffco rivals play five league tournaments plus the regional prior to state every season, and almost every year Valor — which has won four of the last five state titles — reigns.

    But Evergreen coach Mike Kuzava and his Cougars aren’t feeling sorry for the status quo.

  • Lopsided victory benefits EHS...

    Even though the outcome was a foregone conclusion, Nick Johnson considered his win at No. 3 singles and, in turn, Evergreen’s 7-0 shutout of Arvada in boys tennis on Sept. 17 at Evergreen High School to be a learning experience.
