    Evergreen’s best gymnast and lone junior is trying to regain her form after an offseason layoff from the sport and an illness that has forced her to miss meets this year. Its promising freshman is battling a sore ankle while adjusting to the high school version of the sport. Its lone senior also has battled illness. The remainder of the squad is sophomores and freshmen. Its assistant coach is new.

    No wonder second-year coach Chancey Hines is asking for patience.

    DENVER — Lauren Hawes went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs and Emily Lauder, making her first start in right field, threw a Thomas Jefferson runner out at the plate as Evergreen won the Mile High Invitational on Sept. 13 with a 6-5 victory.

    The Lady Cougars broke a 5-all tie in the top of the seventh.

  • Cougars find the right touch in...

    First-year Evergreen boys soccer coach Ross Fowler, like his predecessor Peter Jeans, preaches that his team should have greater possession of the ball than the opposition. He finds that the teams who are able to do that consistently score a lot more goals later in the game.

    PARKER — The Evergreen Lady Cougars volleyball team played a shoelace game against the Lutheran Lady Lions, winning 25-13, 25-15, 24-26, 25-21 at Lutheran High School on Sept. 4.

    For the first two games, every ball the Lady Cougars lobbed over the net seemed to sink right at the Lions’ feet, forcing Lutheran to dig time and again. But then the Lady Cougars lost their momentum in the third game.

  • Cougars dominant on defense,...

    Greysen Lincoln was hoping for something like the 21-yard fumble return the senior defensive lineman scored in the first quarter of Evergreen’s 2014 season opener, but he didn’t really think it was going to happen. 

    But that’s the kind of night it was for the Cougars in a Top-10 showdown that was anything but a marquee match-up.

    Evergreen, ranked No. 6 in CHSAA’s 3A preseason poll, dominated from start to finish in routing No. 9 Lewis-Palmer 38-0 on a cloud-covered Aug. 29 night at Evergreen High School.
