  • Maine senior Palken wins 15K

    Greg Palken approached the Evergreen Mountain 15K as his one big race of the summer. The 21-year-old rising senior, in Colorado visiting family, plans to try out for the University of Maine cross country team this fall.

    He thought the race would be a nice one to train with. Boy was it ever. Palken won the July 9 event in 1 hour, 8 minutes and 22 seconds.

  • Triple Bypass offers challenges...

    When Tom Rieber rode in his first Triple Bypass two years ago, he did so because he hadn’t done it before. Then a resident of Denver — he’s since moved to Salt Lake City — Rieber was looking to try a different course after riding a number of century rides.

    It was a little more convenient in 2014, but that didn’t stop Rieber from coming back in 2016 to ride July 9 from Bergen Park to Aspen.

  • 15U Cougars win Letofsky...

    Josh Brown allowed one run over five innings, while Dylan Patterson and Garrett Born had three hits each as Evergreen’s 15U squad beat Legacy 10-2 to win the Mert Letofksy summer tournament over the Fourth of July weekend.

    This is second time in three years that Evergreen’s 15U team has won the tournament. The Cougars scored wins over Chatfield (7-2), Columbine (7-3) and Arena Baseball (8-0) en route to the finals.

  • Former Cougar Haebe leads the way

    When Bryn Haebe looks back at her collegiate running career, both in cross country and track, it was a pretty good experience. Maybe it wasn’t as good as she would’ve hoped and she didn’t run as fast as maybe she would’ve liked, but it was still enjoyable.

  • Tradition reigns again as Weiner...

    There are traditions that are just second nature when it comes to the Fourth of July: cookouts, parades, fireworks, and even Joey Chestnut seemingly always winning the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog eating contest. 

    Add another one: Bob Weiner winning the Mount Evans Freedom Run 5K.

  • A summer of fun

    Lunch boxes and backpacks scattered the field at Buchanan Park, but the kids – ages 6 to 12 — weren’t in class. No, this was summer sports camp, a week-long fun-filled day of activity, where campers play sports in the morning and go on other activities in the afternoon.

    Some will bring toys to play with at times, like Skylander figurines, but, in general, the Evergreen Park & Recreation District camp offers a mixture of skill development coupled with summer fun.

  • 17U Cougars, Arena split ...

    Jack Hudd’s not fooling himself. He understands that he’s not a strikeout pitcher. When the rising Evergreen senior takes the mound, his objective is simple — induce ground balls and trust his defense.

    He did both of those things in the opener of the 17U Evergreen Cougars’ doubleheader with Arena Baseball on June 22 at Evergreen High School. Hudd scattered six hits while striking out only four, but six EHS runs in the first two innings backed him up in a 9-0 win.

  • Column: Return lets me know what...

    Hi again. I’m back.

    Nine months ago, I didn’t envision a return to Evergreen Newspapers and Landmark Community Newspapers, Inc. Working in Boulder had given me a more regular work schedule, not as far of a drive from my Arvada home and a sense of being back in the operations of a daily newspaper. It also, however, reminded me of what I was missing.

  • A stirring comeback for Casey...

    By Craig Harper, for the Courier

    EVERGREEN — It hurt Casey Colletti both literally and emotionally to miss last year’s Evergreen Rodeo.
