  • Nations learning on the fly for...

    Evergreen freshman wrestler Thomas Nations is also part of the school’s jazz band. So for some wrestling practices, he’s only there for half the time. Two other days a week, he’s there for the duration. But what he has learned with those limited reps is paying off.

  • EHS can’t overcome slow start

    Not too many teams are going to come back after spotting the opposition the first 13 points and 20 of the game’s first 21.
    That’s especially true when you’re playing a caliber team such as Valor Christian, the state’s No. 1 team in Class 4A. Evergreen found out the hard way.
    The host Cougars in their home opener trailed 13-0 not even 3 minutes into the game, and they didn’t hit their first basket until Valor Christian was ahead 20-1 en route to a 72-38 thrashing Dec. 7 at Evergreen High School.

  • Cougars’ comeback falls short

    Evergreen girls basketball coach Amy Bahl is competitive by nature. In her second year at the helm of the Lady Cougars, she’s trying to instill that same mentality in her team. That includes results like the team’s 53-48 home defeat to Sand Creek on Dec. 7.
    “I always tell our team that I don’t want to lose off uncontested layups. I want to lose off contested jump shots,” Bahl said. “If that team was going to beat us by a lot tonight, it was going to be from the 3-point line.”

  • Evergreen reigns as poms champs

    Monique O’Neill served as an assistant for four years under legendary Evergreen poms coach Debbie Cooper.
    So when Cooper unexpectedly moved out of state this year, O’Neill, as she put it, “tried to do everything that she taught me to” to keep the Lady Cougars on track.
    “Initially, (the girls) were kind of scared, worried about what was going to happen,” O’Neill said. “I told them that I would step up to take it, and that if they had faith in themselves and faith in me that we’d have a successful year.”

  • Annual Christmas Bird Count adds...

    Once more, ‘tis the season for the Christmas Bird Count. The CBC is more than 100 years old. It was the custom for sportsmen to go out on Christmas Day to see how many birds they could shoot.

  • Winter birds coming to feeders...

    November brought us some variable weather. Not unexpectedly, we received our first measurable snow and a few brief snow squalls. November also brought us some fine spring-like days with temperatures in the foothills in the high 60s and Denver even reached 71 one day.

     

  • EHS hasn’t skipped a beat

    For the Courier
    It’s never easy replacing a legend — especially during the season — but the somewhat unexpected transition apparently has been smooth for the Evergreen poms squad.

  • Boys basketball preview:...

    EVERGREEN COUGARS
    Head coach: Scott Haebe
    Assistant coaches: Jordan Diegman, Tom Warren, Adam Dodge
    Conference: 4A Jeffco
    2012-13 record: 17-8
    2012-13 recap: Evergreen went 11-3 to finish in second place in the 4A Jeffco League behind D’Evelyn. “Last year, I thought, was a really good season. Unfortunately, we ran into Lewis-Palmer in the Round of 16,” Haebe said. The Cougars reached the third round of the 4A state tournament before losing to the eventual state champions.

  • Cougars’ Curtis hard at work

    If Jack Curtis were to describe himself as a basketball player, he would say that he’s hard working, he does anything that he can for his team, and he will do what it takes to win, within reason, of course. That’s pretty much how others describe him as well.

  • Skier Duke is working her way...

    It’s not every day that a 2010 Olympian walks around Idaho Springs, but that’s where skier Hailey Duke was last week. Actually, she was just stationed there while commuting up to Echo Mountain for a couple of days of warm-up runs before she seeks to complete the biggest comeback of her life.
    “We always have to come to Colorado during this time of the year. It’s got the best skiing and best training leading into the first race of the season,” the 28-year-old Sun Valley, Idaho native said.
