  • EHS’ Tenney, Holley soak in...

    This year’s 4A state girls golf tournament on May 19 and 20 could be viewed as a changing of the guard for the Evergreen Lady Cougars. Senior Madison Tenney left one final impression before moving on to college, while freshman Natalie Holley is just getting her feet wet.
    Tenney carded a 35-over-par 179 to tie for 27th place, while Holley tied for 51st with a 50-over 194 at the Country Club of Colorado Springs.

  • EHS’ playoff run meets an end...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — For all of the first half and most of the second, the Evergreen Lady Cougars proved they belonged in the 4A state girls soccer quarterfinals, even if their No. 24 seeding may have indicated otherwise. But, eventually, all good things do come to an end.

  • Third time not a charm for the...

    AURORA — It doesn’t matter which sport you are competing in It is always difficult to beat the same team three times in the same season. Evergreen’s varsity baseball season came to an abrupt end May 17 as the Cougars failed to defeat Green Mountain for a third time this year.
    The Rams won 8-2 as part of the double-elimination 4A state tournament at Cherokee Trail High School. This season was special for the Cougars (18-5).

  • Cougars go to camp to prep for...

    Midsummer’s 90-degree heat had eased — if only for a day — on July 17, and the grass at Evergreen Middle School was a little thicker than what the Evergreen Cougars are accustomed to. Consistent rain does that, not to mention that EHS’ home facility and the playing surface at familiar Trailblazer Stadium is turf, not grass.

    Yet, heat or no heat, grass or turf, it was all relative for Evergreen’s football team, which was in the first of a two-week camp just weeks before officially starting practice Aug. 11.

  • Fowler has big shoes to fill

    Ross Fowler has plenty of soccer coaching experience from his time with the Colorado Rush and Altitude FC, where he has been the director of coaching for both. Now the Manchester, England native has his first head coaching position at the high school level.

    Earlier this summer, Fowler was named the head coach for Evergreen High School’s boys soccer program, replacing Peter Jeans, who resigned for personal reasons.

    “It’s a good program. It’s an exciting opportunity to try to build on,” Fowler said.

  • EHS alum Burke perfect in pro...

    Brock Burke made his professional debut for the Gulf Coast Rays on July 18 against the Baltimore Orioles’ rookie-level team at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, Fla. 

    The 6-foot-2 left-hander started and pitched just the first inning as the team slowly works him into the rotation after a heavy pitch count during the high school season.

    The 17-year-old Evergreen High graduate tossed a one-two-three inning, striking out the Orioles’ Henry Urrutia to end the frame. 

  • Evergreen High alum Spinzig...

    Christina Spinzig, a 2010 Evergreen High graduate, was named an All-American Scholar for the second consecutive year by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association.

    Spinzig was joined on the list by Colorado State University teammate Betsy Kelly. To qualify, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.50 cumulative grade-point average.

    The 22-year-old Spinzig played in 10 tournaments this past season for Colorado State, recording one top-20 finish and an average round of 77.7. 

    She graduated with a degree in business administration.
