  • Charting a new course

    Conifer’s boys swim team is hoping to reach the next level.

    They were on the cusp of a top-five finish at last year’s Class 4A state tournament, taking eighth-place.

    This year the primary goal for the Lobos is simple.

  • ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: Sierra knocks...

    GOLDEN - In the end, Sierra's speed was able to overcome Evergreen's height as the second-seeded Sallions outscored the No. 3 Cougars 8-2 in the game's final three minutes to win the Tracy Hill Region's Sweet 16 game March 7 at Golden High School.

    Evergreen, which had its eight-game win streak ended, led by four poitns after the first quarter and twice led by as many as 10 points in the second quarter. Sierra, though, never faltered and answered Evergreen's charge each time.

  • ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: Evergreen boys...

    There’s good gravy, and ho-hum gravy.

    In the end, it’s still gravy.

    Evergreen didn’t wow anyone Feb. 26 as the Cougars opened the first round of the Class 4A state boys basketball tournament with 20 turnovers and an intermittent inside game against a physically smaller Prairie View squad.

    The fifth-seeded Cougars (13-11), however, never trailed and won 56-42 to advance to the second round of the Bill Weimer Region.

    That’s gravy.

  • Bye, bye Mustangs

    It was Senior Night at Evergreen High School Feb. 22 and the Cougars’ three honorees made sure it would be a very fond memory. Megan Hodson, Kimmy Baroch and Tricia Oakes fueled a furious third quarter rally and led the Cougars to a 54-40 victory over Class 4A Jefferson County League rival Ralston Valley.

  • Cougars run out of ammo

    ARVADA — There is a certain qualifier to that whole David and Goliath scenario. Namely, David had rocks.

    Five of them, actually.

    So rather than beat the giant at his in-close game, David drilled the big guy from distance. Game over.

  • ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: Jaguars sink...

    DENVER – Evergreen made seven field goals in the first quarter of its boys basketball game Feb. 20 at D’Evelyn.
