    Evergreen suffers rare shutout on road at L-P
    MONUMENT — Four years. That’s how long it’s been since the Evergreen Cougars’ football team had been shutout. That all changed Sept. 9 at Lewis-Palmer High School as the Rangers blanked EHS 42-0.

    The defending Class 4A boys’ soccer state champions began the 2016 season right where they left off.

    Evergreen, ranked No. 1 in the CHSAANow.com preseason poll, opened the season Sept. 1 with a dominating 6-0 victory over Palmer at Evergreen High School. Five Cougars found the back of the net in the first 45 minutes.

    The outcome aside, Rob Molholm’s cardiologist wouldn’t recommend many more games like the 2016 opener for Evergreen’s head football coach.

    On the sideline for the first time since he suffered a heart attack last December, Molholm no doubt suffered palpitations while guiding his mostly inexperienced Cougars to a 23-21 victory over Northridge on Sept. 2 at Evergreen High School.

  • Cates, Lobos knock off Cougars

    Jaden Cates is such an intense player that sometimes Conifer softball coach Carrie Oletski has to remind her sophomore pitcher — one of eight sophomores on this year’s team — to smile from time to time, loosen up but also remember to throw strikes.

    The strikes were hit and miss Aug. 30 at Evergreen High School as Cates scattered eight walks, but she showed enough poise to fan six and allow just five hits as the Lady Lobos, behind an early seven-run cushion, pounded out a 10-4 victory.

  • EHS gymnastics hopes opening...

    LITTLETON ­— The Chatfield Lady Chargers, despite having first-meet jitters and several falls in their season opener Sept. 1 at home against Green Mountain and Evergreen, yielded some impressive performances.

    Chatfield, with its largest team ever – 35 girls, took first place in tri-meet with 167.3 points. Green Mountain took second with 153.6 points, while Evergreen was third at 125.625.

  • 2016 prep football preview: It...

    The long, straggly dirty blond hair waves as Cameron Hays walks off the practice field.

    “It started getting a bit long. I might as well keep it,” Hays said of his flowing mane. “I started growing it out, and I started liking it more and more. My dad hates it, but he’s kind of gotten used to it. We’ll see how long it lasts. It looks all right with the helmet.”

  • 2016 cross country preview:...

    Brandon Swenson doesn’t like to lose, according to Evergreen boys cross country coach Rob Wright. And that’s probably so. 

    But can the Evergreen High senior win it all in 2016? After all, he placed seventh last year at the 4A state meet in his first year with the Cougars after transferring over from Clear Creek High.

  • Evergreen stadium committee...

    The press box and a concession stand are already in place. Now the Evergreen High School stadium committee is eyeing a bigger concession stand with public restrooms and team locker rooms, improved lighting, a ramp and seating for an additional 1,200 fans at Evergreen High School.

    The proposal, if it comes to fruition, would allow EHS to host state football playoff games on its home turf. Furthermore, it would improve the overall atmosphere of athletic and band competitions.
