  • Final tuneup before regionals...

    GOLDEN — On one hand, it could be looked at as underachieving. But when the Evergreen Lady Cougars’ girls golf team sets goals prior to a tournament, like it did for the Ashley Forey Invitational on April 30 at Rolling Hills Country Club, it’s probably more ambitious than anything else.
    The course got the better of Evergreen on this day, but not before the Lady Cougars’ foursome got in one last-minute tuneup before regionals.

  • First-half deficit too much for...

    LAKEWOOD — The Evergreen girls’ soccer team was defeated by Green Mountain 3-1 on April 27 at Lakewood Memorial Field. The Lady Cougars’ loss was especially hard to swallow given that, going into their matchup, Evergreen and Green Mountain were the only undefeated teams left in the 4A Jeffco League.
    The win locked up the conference title for Green Mountain, which improved to 12-0-1 overall, 8-0-1 in league play.

  • Rebels deny Cougars share of...

    LAKEWOOD — Winning a boys lacrosse conference championship is uncharted territory for Columbine. It had never happened before. And though the Rebels knew what was on the line when they played Evergreen on April 25 at Trailblazer Stadium, they also knew it wouldn’t come easy.
    And it didn’t. But Columbine stayed the course and a third-period flurry would be all it would need to make history.

  • Virginia rail makes its way back...

    Last week, Loie Evans phoned to tell me there was a Virginia rail at Evergreen Lake. They have been seen and heard at the lake before, but they are not as regularly seen as the sora.
    Rails are difficult to see for they live among the reeds and grasses in marshes and seldom come out in the open where you can have a good look at them. They are not particularly shy or afraid of people; they just like to stay in their marsh where they find the food they need.

  • First flowers of spring bring...

    It is wonderful to see spring greening the hills once more. I drove south to Colorado Springs and Pueblo with friends last week and was once more impressed by the changing landscape south of Colorado Springs.

  • Lobos surprise Cougars, win...

    CONIFER — Little did Caleb Henderson believe he would even get the opportunity to bat in the seventh inning of Conifer’s rivalry game with Evergreen on April 18. After all, he was the fifth batter in line and the Lobos’ first two batters struck out.
