  • Offense lifts Cougars past Lobos...

    CONIFER -- Good pitching and timely hitting can win you a lot of baseball games. Evergreen found that out Monday afternoon as it defeated rival Conifer 13-4 at Conifer High School.
    Jack Hudd took the mound with elements that usually haunt pitchers. With cold temperatures and high wind pitchers typically have a tough time staying in a good flow, but not Hudd. The right-hander made quick work of the Lobos in his four innings of work, giving up just two hits while fanning two. 

  • No. 1 Valor Christian tops No. 3...

    CONIFER --  Anytime you host the top ranked team in the state you are sure to draw a big time atmosphere. That was the case on Monday night as No.3 Conifer hosted No.1 Valor Christian in front of a packed stadium.
    Conifer hung in early, but lost their composure in the second half en route to a 20-10 loss.
    “It’s tough when you are tired late in the game,” said Conifer head coach Paul Taylor. “We lost our composure and it showed on the scoreboard and in the penalty box.”

  • Evergreen blanks Conifer on...

    CONIFER -- Evergreen senior Sofia Weiner kicked off her final season with a solid performance in a 5-0 victory over rival Conifer on Thursday night at Lobo Field.
    With temperatures on the cool side, the Lady Cougars offense heated things up, firing off two shots in the game’s first three minutes.
    The Lady Cougars struck first in the 5th minute as Weiner intercepted a Conifer pass and powered a shot from 15 yards out past the Lady Lobos keeper and into the back of the net, giving Evergreen the early 1-0 advantage.

  • Lady Cougars are Final Four bound

    Keigan Drysdale took a deep breath as she stood at the free throw line, peeking up at the scoreboard with 1 minute, 1 second remaining and her Evergreen Lady Cougars on the way to the Final Four.

    “I was in the moment. I was out of breath, tired, all over the place. I took one look at the clock,” said the Evergreen senior, who had missed four free throws earlier in the quarter. “I had to get it together. I took a deep breath, collected myself a little bit and just shot it like I do in practice.”

  • Baseball: Conifer opens 2017...

    THORNTON –– Matt Aceto and Jackson Hale combined for six RBIs as Conifer routed Thornton 20-1 in its season opener on Thursday. The game was called after four innings due to the mercy rule.
    The Lobos scored four runs in the opening frame. Mark Ness got things started with an RBI single. Hale hit a sacrifice fly to center, tallying another for the Lobos as they led 3-0. Conifer finished the inning with a fourth run when Chris Wachtl singled to right, scoring John Betsch.

  • Baseball: Third inning lifts...

    FORT CARSON -- Five runs in the third inning gave Evergreen the lead for good as it topped the Fountain-Fort Carson Trojans 11-7 on Thursday.
    The Cougars entered the top half of the third inning in a 2-2 deadlock with the Trojans, but Evergreen's bats came to life propelling them to the victory.

    Believe it or not — and don’t let the weather be the judge of this — but spring sports season is upon us. Practices are in full swing, some teams have started play, and others get going this week. Here are 10 stories to watch for as Evergreen, Conifer and Platte Canyon high schools prepare to embark on the final season of the high school athletic calendar for the 2016-17 school year.

  • Calm, collected Cougars prevail

    It starts with yoga during practice, and Chase Rogers noted how head coach Scott Haebe has stressed to his Evergreen Cougars all season about being calm in the fourth quarter. Close your eyes and take a deep breath during a dead-ball situation. It came in handy Saturday night.

  • Evergreen turns it up in the 2nd...

    If there was ever a tale of two halves, it was the Evergreen Lady Cougars’ 4A state tournament opener on Friday night.

    The first half wasn’t exactly anything to remember offensively, outside of a 9-0 run to close the first quarter. Evergreen led at the intermission 19-7, thanks largely to a defense that held the visiting Lady Stallions without a basket for 8 minutes and 23 seconds.
