  • Lobos drop third straight

    GOLDEN — After winning its season opener, the Conifer baseball team dropped its third-straight game in a 10-0 loss to Golden on Thursday night.

    Trailing 1-0 entering the bottom half of the third inning, Golden delivered the dagger as Noah Mitchell hit a grand slam to give Golden a 6-0 lead.

  • Evergreen girls basketball...

    DENVER — Keigan Drysdale, with tears in her eyes, walked to center court and clutched the 4A state girls basketball championship trophy.
    “It was insane. I never thought that we would be here. I would never have thought that I would be the only senior on a state championship-winning team, and I couldn’t have done it without my team,” Drysdale said. “The reason that we’re so good is because we all need each other. We all use each other. It’s not just one player. I can’t stop crying.”

  • Offense lifts Cougars past Lobos...

    CONIFER -- Good pitching and timely hitting can win you a lot of baseball games. Evergreen found that out Monday afternoon as it defeated rival Conifer 13-4 at Conifer High School.
    Jack Hudd took the mound with elements that usually haunt pitchers. With cold temperatures and high wind pitchers typically have a tough time staying in a good flow, but not Hudd. The right-hander made quick work of the Lobos in his four innings of work, giving up just two hits while fanning two.

    CONIFER --  Anytime you host the top ranked team in the state you are sure to draw a big time atmosphere. That was the case on Monday night as No.3 Conifer hosted No.1 Valor Christian in front of a packed stadium.
    Conifer hung in early, but lost their composure in the second half en route to a 20-10 loss.
    “It’s tough when you are tired late in the game,” said Conifer head coach Paul Taylor. “We lost our composure and it showed on the scoreboard and in the penalty box.”

    The Lady Cougars struck first in the 5th minute as Weiner intercepted a Conifer pass and powered a shot from 15 yards out past the Lady Lobos keeper and into the back of the net, giving Evergreen the early 1-0 advantage.

  • Lady Cougars are Final Four bound

    Keigan Drysdale took a deep breath as she stood at the free throw line, peeking up at the scoreboard with 1 minute, 1 second remaining and her Evergreen Lady Cougars on the way to the Final Four.

    “I was in the moment. I was out of breath, tired, all over the place. I took one look at the clock,” said the Evergreen senior, who had missed four free throws earlier in the quarter. “I had to get it together. I took a deep breath, collected myself a little bit and just shot it like I do in practice.”
