  • Cougars impose their defensive...

    Evergreen head boys basketball coach Scott Haebe has made no bones about it. For his team to be successful, it will be because the Cougars’ man-to-man defense is stifling the opposition.

    In Evergreen’s home opener Dec. 4 against Fort Lupton, it took a quarter before the Cougars made their presence felt defensively, but it did eventually happen. It, in turn, opened up an offense that seemingly couldn’t miss in the second and third quarters of a 65-36 non-conference victory.

  • Evergreen epitomizes hard work,...

    DENVER — Like a well-rehearsed chorus line, sort of like the Radio City Rockettes, Evergreen High’s poms team is a well-oiled machine.

    Their hair seemingly perfect, their movements equaled to that. Typically, as has been the case for years now, they can do no wrong.

  • 2014 all-conference football,...

    The following are all-conference selections for the 2014 fall season in football and volleyball:

  • James Morrato is the smart one

    When one talks about James Morrato, it’s not just what kind of basketball player he is, even though he was an all-conference honorable mention selection last season.

    It’s not the kind of soccer player he is, though he was first team all-conference in the fall. 

    And it’s not just the kind of student he is, though he does hold a 4.48 grade-point average, is the student body president and is a three-time state qualifier and national qualifier in DECA.

  • Return of Hanson, sophomores...

    Lane Hanson admits it. The Evergreen senior wrestler went into last year’s regional tournament a little too cocky. Coming off a win over Valor Christian’s Coby Welch a week earlier at Bear Creek may have done more harm than good considering the end result. He finished fifth in arguably the toughest bracket of all the regionals.

  • Trimarco ready for the spotlight

    The changes in Annie Trimarco’s game may not be all that noticeable at first glance, but take a closer look and one can see the Evergreen senior’s confidence growing by leaps and bounds.

    “My confidence has definitely gone up,” Trimarco said. “It has to do a lot with me being more comfortable and this being my last year. It’s my last chance to prove myself.”

  • Austrians, EHS players share...

    On a cool afternoon, a group of snowboarders came down off the the slopes to play a little baseball? In November?

    Apparently, any time is a good time for a ball game at Evergreen High School, especially if it’s against the Austrian parallel snowboarding team, who were nearby by training at Copper Mountain for the 2014 Snowboard World Cup in December. 

  • Bowl caps year of life-learning...

    LAKEWOOD — “Coach, coach … Who would win in a battle between Superman and Batman?”

    It was a question that Jeffco Midget Football Association (JMFA) head coach for the Dakota Ridge Eagles, Dave Loomis, faced in all seriousness during the middle of a “very intense play” earlier this season. It was the kind of question that reminded Loomis that coaching 8 to 10-year-old football isn’t as straight-forward as it might seem.

  • 2014-15 girls swimming capsule...

  • Mountain alders produce seeds...

    The famous January thaw seems to be well known in most of the winter areas. It certainly is here. Several days last week were very spring-like with 50 degrees, warm southeast winds and mostly sunny skies.

    This made everyone feel like spring was coming, and we had spring fever in the middle of winter. This is one of the things that makes year-round life in the foothills bearable and gives us courage for the long winters that we do have. Real spring doesn’t arrive here until May, so it is these spring-like days that make it possible for us to survive.
