  • EHS boys golf coach placed on...

    Mike Kuzava, Evergreen High School’s boys golf coach, has been placed on administrative leave for two weeks, according to an e-mail that athletic director Tony Barnett sent to parents and players on Aug. 19.

    Neither Kuzava nor Barnett would comment on the reasons behind the action.

    “I don’t agree with what happened, but I’ll live with the decision,” Kuzava said.

    Assistant coach Wes Short will coach the team in the interim, Barnett confirmed.

  • 2015 boys tennis preview: EHS...

    Bob Greenman, Evergreen’s co-head boys tennis coach, has preached year in and year out that his players should go down the hill — meaning into Denver — to play in competitive tournaments during the off season. He sees that as a way for the Cougars to get better come time for the regular season.
    This year, those players listened, and the hope is that the experience will pay off.

  • 2015 boys soccer preview: A year...

    In 2014, the transfer of coaching power from Peter Jeans to Ross Fowler as the head varsity boys soccer coach at Evergreen High School was a smooth one.
    “It was a fairly easy transition for me. Our style of play and philosophy are fairly similar,” Fowler said. “There were some little changes, but we always want to be a possession-based team.”

  • ‘I still dream of flying’

    “I used to dream about flying when I was a kid,” said Evergreen resident and IT specialist for the National Park Services Allen “Sparky” Sparks as he feeds the poles that give his hang glider shape through their narrow Dacron fabric opening.

  • Cougars return loaded talent...

    In 2014, three sophomores — Liam Short, Lenny Urbas and Mark Champine — and a freshman — Bridger Tenney — brought a sense of relief to the Evergreen Cougars’ boys golf program. Now it’s not like EHS hasn’t had its share of success in the past; it has. But last year was the first time in four years that the Cougars had qualified for the 4A state tournament as a team.

  • Krause repeats at Mt. Falcon 15K

    By Craig Harper, for the Courier

    MORRISON — Her 9-year-old daughter’s soccer schedule prevents Lindsay Krause from fulfilling a full schedule of races. But Krause has managed to squeeze in the last two Mt. Falcon 15K runs — the third and middle leg of the Evergreen Trail Racing Series — and she’s made the most of both opportunities.

  • Cougars use summer camp to focus...

    Rob Molholm may be a bit superstitious. After all, he is a high school football coach. Why else would the Evergreen High coach, entering his seventh season, put his team through its annual two-week camp, which ended July 31, even though the Cougars won’t start the regular season until Sept. 4 at Lewis-Palmer?

    “We’re not going to change things since it’s been working. Since 2010, we’ve been doing this camp,” Molholm said.

  • Chase continues rowing success

    Kendall Chase continues to add to her rowing accolades. The Evergreen resident and University of California junior repeated at the U-23 world rowing championships on July 26 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, helping the United States to win the women’s four and eight titles for a second consecutive year.

  • Bleeding blue and gold

    Jesse Orlans bleeds Evergreen blue and gold. The 2000 EHS graduate spent three years on the football field for the Cougars as a varsity player. He bled, sweated and shed some tears on the field.

    He’s also very prideful. So when the 33-year-old returned to Evergreen five years ago to be an assistant coach, not to mention head up the program’s JV and Level III squads, he did so with a chip on his shoulder.

  • Column: From Alberta to New...

    Chances are you didn’t spend a portion of your summer like Charles Lynch did. I certainly didn’t.

    The 2013 Evergreen High School graduate and now a recreation major at Western Washington University only went on a 2,768-mile bike ride from Banff, Alberta, to the New Mexico-Mexico border, passing through Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado in the process. That’s all.
