  • 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.

  • Evergreen golf finishes runner-...

     

    LITTLETON — For the first time in school history, in a rally from Bridger Tenney, Clayton Whitton, Xan Anderson and Nolan Miller, the Evergreen golf team finished runner-up in last week’s 4A state tournament, with Tenney coming in second place in the individual competition.

    “I’m extremely thankful that I was a part of this,” head coach Mike Kuzava said. “These guys kind of did their own bonding and coaching, and I was just along for the ride.

  • EHS football takes down Skyview...

    By Craig Harper

    EVERGREEN — Evan Price booted a game-winning field goal in his debut as his brother Davis’ replacement last season. And this year he hauled in his first touchdown pass, an 80-yarder no less.

    Those “firsts’’ were memorable for the Evergreen senior. But they paled in significance and satisfaction to when he accomplished both for the second time in the fourth quarter of a statement 10-9 win over Skyview on Friday. It was the third-straight victory for the Cougars (5-1 overall).

  • Lobos win handily in “Fire Game...

    CONIFER — After adding an extra game to the end of its regular season schedule, Conifer softball wanted to make sure its contest against Lakewood meant something.

    Whether defeating Lakewood 12-3 or tossing rubber ducks sold onto the mound after the game, neither the Lobos nor the Tigers will forget the “Fire Game” they played to raise money for the Elk Creek Fire Department on Saturday morning.

  • Szuch, Cougars’ XC getting ready...

    NORTHGLENN — After just half the team competed in Friday’s Pat Amato Classic at Northwest Open Spaces, Evergreen cross country felt pretty good heading into regionals.

    Midway through the boys’ race on the sunny afternoon, the wind picked up to what felt like gale-force levels as a storm cell moved into the area. About 30 minutes later, midway through the girls’ race, coaches and officials pulled the competitors off the course due to nearby lightning, and they weren’t able to complete their course.

  • Golddiggers fall to Middle Park...

    By Alissa Noe

    EVERGREEN — All season long, Clear Creek volleyball has been rolling, but after a tough three-game skid that ended with a loss to Middle Park at home on Thursday, it’s hoping it can get back on track before the league and, eventually, state tournaments.

  • 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.

  • Bearing respect for binging...

    The drying leaves rattle in the breeze, a morning chill freshens the air, and, in the distance, the shrill echo of a majestic bull elk signals that fall has arrived. On a mountain path, there are well-placed mounds of scat, laden with seeds, indicating that a bear stood in that very spot not so long ago.  

  • Huskies down Saints in strong...

    BAILEY — Early into the season, Platte Canyon football has been rolling. However, after a rough start to their homecoming game against Vail Christian on Saturday, its perfect record looked to be in jeopardy.

    That is, until it found its groove again in the second quarter. After regrouping and tightening their defense against a very good quarterback in senior Tom Engleby, the Huskies downed the Saints easily 43-22.
