  • 2016 softball preview: Lady...

    For some, coming off a 7-12 season — the worst season in recent history — might be a concern. For the Evergreen Lady Cougars, they’re approaching the second year of the Della Mitchel era with high hopes.

    “She a great coach. We’re really excited about this year,” senior pitcher Katie Solis said. “We have a lot of good girls. We just want to go farther than we did last year.”

  • Experienced Cougars have sights...

    If someone asked Evergreen senior Lenny Urbas what should be expected of the Cougars’ boys golf program in 2016, considering it’s coming off a 2015 season in which he won a regional title and the team placed third at the 4A state meet, the answer is obvious.

    “We go back and win state this year,” Urbas said.

    CONIFER — Chilly mountain air and cloud cover was a good change from the brutal summer temps, making all 42 runners who signed up for the hilly 5-mile race through Meyer Ranch happy. The terrain was far from flat, however, forcing athletes to climb for the better half of the course.

    Steve Patterson, a PGA instructor for Hiwan Golf Club, has been named the 2016 Teacher of the Year by the Colorado PGA. A golf professional for 23 years, Patterson became a certified professional in golf instruction and golf operations in 2008. He has worked at Hiwan since 2013.

    Jason Brown examined the steep climb up the 10 ½-foot wall, but this time it was different. This time, he had 8-year-old Sylvie Guerrant on his back.

    It wasn’t as if Brown was out to prove anything to himself. He’s done the climb time and again. After all he’s been a two-time American Ninja Warrior series competitor ­— in 2012 in Dallas and this year in Oklahoma City.

  • Cassin building toward a...

    At Evergreen High School, Marcus Cassin was used to building success on athletic fronts, in particular on the football field. Now the rising sophomore is building on a different front, working toward a career in construction as part of his studies at Colorado State University.

    The 2015 Canyon Courier male athlete of the year recently was accepted into construction business school at Colorado State. He’s been working an internship near Cherry Creek this summer. 

  • EHS preps for 2016 with camp,...

    Rob Molholm has a simple explanation for what the two-week football camp the Evergreen Cougars run at the end of July is all about.

    “What we look to do is try and get our system in,” said Molholm, the winningest coach in school history with a 54-23 record. “Some people and some assistants like to go away. When you go away, it’s just scrimmaging the whole time and you’re not really coaching your system. This is how we get our system installed.”

  • Morrow fitting in with the Pack

    Lindsay Morrow walked out onto the pool deck and the experience took her breath away. Now the 2015 Evergreen High School graduate and two-time Canyon Courier female athlete of the year has made that walk hundreds of times before. But this time it was different. This time it was in Omaha, Neb., home of the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.

    Brock Burke’s professional pitching career is slow-going, but that’s on purpose.

    The 2014 Evergreen High School graduate has yet to pitch a full season in the minor leagues, but that’s because for the third straight year he’s in a short-season league. This year, Burke’s pitching for the Rays’ Class A short-season Hudson Valley Renegades in the New York-Penn League.

    It pays to know the competition in any endeavor. When Brian Folts noticed that Dan McIntosh and Gabriel Zumbado were not entered in the fifth annual Evergreen Sprint Triathlon, he liked his chances.

    A Golden resident and familiar face at the event, Folts was the runner-up to McIntosh last year and Zumbado in 2014. He also finished fourth when McIntosh won and Zumbaldo took third in 2013.
