  • Platte Canyon fumbles into Clear...

    IDAHO SPRINGS — In a football battle that had the combined score topping 100, the Clear Creek Golddiggers defeated the undefeated Platte Canyon Huskies 62-42 during Friday night’s senior game.

    With the win, the Diggers (7-1) not only bested the Huskies for the first time since 1998, but they handed Platte Canyon (6-1) its first loss of a very successful season. If anything, they proved just how good they are this year, with their only loss coming against the always-formidable Bennett.

  • Evergreen volleyball finishes...

    GOLDEN — Nearing the end of its regular season and with a lot to prove going into the postseason, the Evergreen volleyball team made a statement at Golden High School on Oct. 17 as the Cougars took down the Demons in four sets, 3-1.

    All season, the Cougars boasted strong team play and sat at No. 10 in Class 4A in the CHSAANow.com rankings as of Oct. 23, but with a 12-6 record, they’ve still had their fair share of setbacks this year.

    Tuesday’s game was a near-perfect metaphor for the way their season has gone.

  • Highway overpasses successful at...

    The sun was warm as we gathered on Vail Pass last July. Paige Singer, a biologist for Rocky Mountain Wild, and Lisi Lohre, Citizen Science intern for the Denver Zoo, handed out hardhats and bright orange vests to the three volunteers before we piled into an SUV. We drove to a spot between Copper Mountain and Vail Pass, and parked on the shoulder along westbound Interstate 70, near where a number of motion-triggered cameras had been placed in the spring.

  • Be wary of animals in high-...

    Sunday marked the end of daylight saving time, and with the shifting hours of our daily routines, wildlife can be caught off guard. Bewilderingly, the human world around them has been altered overnight. The result of this confusion is often car accidents.

  • Underestimated, unloved creature...

    Children fear them above all else. Over half of women and one in 10 men have varying degrees of aversion to them. One to three million of them are present per acre of land, and no human is more than 10 feet away from this creature at any time.

    Being portrayed as scheming, cunning beasts with bloodlust, such as Lord of the Rings’ Shelob or Harry Potter’s Aragog, it’s no surprise that spiders are so maligned and feared.

  • Conifer softball is headed to...

    DENVER — All season long, Conifer softball coach Carrie Oletski has praised this year’s team as one of her best.

    That sentiment came to fruition on Saturday at the All-City Stadium complex, when the Lobos secured a spot in the state tournament by winning two of three regional matchups to advance.

  • Evergreen gymnastics eyeing...

    LITTLETON — Even though its roster is weakened at the moment, the Evergreen High School gymnastics team is looking to improve upon its fifth-place finish from last season heading into the postseason this year.

  • Football in the Foothills:...

    For youngsters aspiring to play for the Colorado Rapids or the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team one day, Evergreen now has additional opportunities to help them build the skill sets and find the playing time they need to make it to the big leagues.

    Or, simply to have fun.

    The area has two soccer programs for young children: one run by the Evergreen Park & Recreation District and the other run by Altitude Soccer.

  • After league, Cougars prepare...

    LITTLETON — Going into the 4A/5A Jeffco League meet on Thursday at Clement Park, the Evergreen cross country team had a strong showing in most of its competitions.

    After finishing third and fourth in the respective boys and girls races at league, the Cougars are hoping they can carry that momentum into regionals and, with a little luck, state in the following weeks.

  • Huskies fall to Golddiggers...

    BAILEY — Clear Creek volleyball may have won its match against Platte Canyon on Oct. 10, but it lost much more when senior Brittany Burr went down with an ankle injury in the middle of the second game.
