  • Evergreen back in state...

    Kylee Petrik couldn’t put a finger on how her shot found the back of the net early in Evergreen’s 3-0 win over Pueblo Centennial on May 9, but all she knows is that it did. That’s all that mattered.

    It was the first of three goals for the top-seeded Lady Cougars, who got second-half tallies from Sophia Weiner and Brianna Curtis, as Evergreen looked the part of the team to beat in the second round of the 4A state girls soccer tournament.

  • Cougars adjust to coaching change

    ARVADA — Midseason changes are never easy, especially when a team loses its head coach. Such was the case for the Evergreen Cougars’ boys swimming team in 2015. 

    Marc Rios was EHS’ first-year head coach when the season began, but he left midseason for a club coaching position with the Greenwood Tiger Sharks.

    Christian Bachrodt took over, and the adjustment in coaching styles was substantial. While Rios’ focus was more on individuals, Bachrodt focuses more on the team being one, Cooper O’Hearn said.

    Cougars thwart host Durango to win district title
    DURANGO — Dane Kapande had a two-run double and Evergreen blew open the game with a three-run sixth inning as the ninth-seeded Cougars upended No. 8 and host Durango 8-3 on May 10 to win the weather-delayed 4A District 2 tournament.

    Play was delayed a day due to inclement weather.

    Alec Moens’ RBI single in the first inning scored Ryker Eagen and the Cougars continued to add to their led from there.

  • Strategy works as Keegan earns...

    DENVER — Kelli Keegan may be Evergreen’s No. 1 singles player, but the senior has said that she’s felt like an underdog all season. 

    She doesn’t have to feel that way anymore.

  • EHS’ Holley returning to 4A...

    LITTLETON — Natalie Holley can pinpoint her success on the golf course to two factors: continuous practice and her coaches, particularly Hiwan Golf Club’s Kevin Hanley. 

    It is those reasons why the Evergreen sophomore will be making a second straight trip to the 4A state tournament after carding a 9-over-par 81 at the 4A Metro West Regional on May 4. She finished sixth at Raccoon Creek Golf Course.

  • No-hitter continues Cougars’...

    LAKEWOOD — As gauntlets go, Evergreen’s run through the upper echelon of the state’s best 4A baseball teams didn’t quite rival in peril the one Clint Eastwood and Sondra Locke endured in the 1977 same-named flick.

    GIRLS SOCCER
    Evergreen preps for the playoffs with a shutout of Battle Mtn.
    EDWARDS — Freshman Cassidy Formanek scored her third goal of the season and Sophia Weiner assisted on the score as Evergreen toppled host Battle Mountain 1-0 on May 2.

    The Lady Cougars were coming off back-to-back wins over D’Evelyn (4-1) and Standley Lake (1-0) to lock up the 4A Jeffco League championship.

    Natalie Ulfig and Allie Seracuse combined to make five saves in net for EHS.

  • Late goal hands Evergreen its...

    Evergreen girls soccer coach Peter Jeans couldn’t have asked for much more from his team. 

    His Evergreen Lady Cougars, as is usually the case, controlled the ball possession and had its fair share of shots on goal. But what EHS couldn’t do April 23 against Valor Christian was find the back of the net.

    The fourth-ranked visiting Lady Eagles, however, did, on Jastin Redman’s goal in the 77th minute, for a 1-0 victory at Evergreen High School, ending the top-ranked Lady Cougars’ 11-game winning streak and any chance at a perfect season.

  • EHS leaves chances on the base...

    LAKEWOOD — If the Evergreen Cougars are fortunate to make the 4A baseball playoffs, as head coach Steve Jones says — and that’s pretty likely — games like the 2-1 loss to Wheat Ridge on April 25 will help them.
