    1. TOUGH SLEDDING Evergreen, as usual, will have its work cut out for it in the always stingy 4A Jeffco League. Though the Cougars are ranked 10th in the CHSAANOW.com preseason poll, conference foes Valor Christian (No. 2), Golden (No. 4) and D’Evelyn (No. 8) rank ahead of them. It will be a dogfight all season long.

    “They definitely saw that anything is possible. Taking what we do as a program and just executing it well produced success. The team coming in this year sees that.”

  • Cougars back on track

    Connor Williams definitely noticed a change in how the Evergreen High wrestling team ran practice a year ago. Different than what he was used to when his father — Lane Williams — was the head coach. But it wasn’t such a big difference in his view.

  • Lobos have high hopes

    Jack Prentner, despite going 0-2, looks back at last year’s 4A state tournament debut as a positive experience.

    “It was breathtaking at the Pepsi Center. It was really unbelievable. I went two and out, but I still had a great experience,” Prentner said. “I know how hard I have to work. I know what it takes. I also know what I need to improve on.”

  • Huskies’ numbers are down, but...

    Ryley McMahen was winning his semifinal match at regionals last year against Clear Creek’s Matthew McNeil. He was waiting for McNeil to attempt a throw, one that McMahen was resisting, so that the Platte Canyon grappler could turn the tables on his Frontier League foe. Then it happened.

    McMahen’s leg snapped. His ACL was torn, ending his season and any hope of joining his four Platte Canyon teammates at last season’s 3A state wrestling tournament.
