    Cougars place 14th at annual Evergreen Invitational
    The Evergreen Cougars placed 14th in their annual Evergreen Invitational on Jan. 17 with 17 points. The event was held at Evergreen High School.

    The Cougars had one sixth-place finisher as Lane Hanson went 3-2 at 120 pounds. He scored a 9-3 decision in the first round over Kyle Smart of Fossil Ridge before falling in the quarterfinals to Juan Rosales of Lincoln by a 9-5 score. 

  • EHS dominates from start to...

    Last February was the culmination of a three-year push by the Evergreen Lady Cougars’ girls swim team. It finally won that elusive 4A state championship, beating perennial powerhouse Thompson Valley by a commanding 88.5 points.

    So if that was the case last year, then Evergreen’s 143-43 lopsided victory over the visiting Lady Eagles on Jan. 10 at Wulf Recreation Center should serve notice that EHS has no intentions of releasing its perch atop the state pedestal.

    Kisiel, Lady Cougars hold off Green Mountain
    Junior Sam Kisiel led Evergreen with 15 points and the Lady Cougars held off a stern challenge from Green Mountain for a 46-44 home victory on Jan. 9 at Lo Hunter Gymnasium at Evergreen High School.

    Fellow junior Hannah Orr added 11 points, sophomore Keigan Drysdale scored eight and senior Lauren Russell pulled down a game-high eight rebounds as the Lady Cougars (9-1, 2-0 4A Jeffco League) won their eighth straight game.

  • Kisiel’s 35 points help Bahl...

    ARVADA — Amy Bahl didn’t have to look far to see a familiar face. Her father-in-law, Joe Bahl, was coaching on the opposite sideline. The Jan. 3 game was the first of a home-and-home between Evergreen’s girls basketball team and host Arvada West.

    Evergreen’s third-year coach also saw junior post Sam Kisiel have the best scoring game of her career. The 5-foot-11 Kisiel lit up Arvada West in the low post, scoring a career-high 35 points in the Lady Cougars’ 52-35 non-conference victory.

    Evergreen’s youthful 2014 ski team has grown up. The program, in general, has grown. Both developments bode well for the Cougars in 2015 and beyond.

  • The Year in Review

    2014 was quite the year for athletics in Evergreen. State championships were won, and teams went on amazing runs. A pitcher was drafted to the majors, and a legendary coach was honored. Though some of those journeys came up short in the end, they will be memorable nevertheless. Without further ado, let’s take a look back on the year that was 2014.

    Valor Christian was no match for Evergreen’s star-studded girls swimming lineup in the Dec.19 home dual meet that ended the pre-holiday break portion of the season. And it didn’t help the Lady Eagles that Josie Pearson made her 2014-15 debut.

    Pearson, who finished fifth in the 100-yard butterfly and sixth in the 100 backstroke in last season’s 4A state meet, won both of her specialties with state-qualifying marks to pace the Lady Cougars to a 145-38 victory.
