  • Lobos falter in first playoff ...

    CONIFER — When Kellen Ireland and Abe Martin — the only two seniors on this year’s team — were freshmen, the Conifer Lobos were among the worst 4A boys’ basketball teams in the state. Literally.

  • Academy ends Platte Canyon’s...

    WESTMINSTER — Host Academy went on a 20-8 scoring barrage in the first quarter and led by 20 points — 32-20 ‚ at halftime on its way to a 71-23 thumping of Platte Canyon in the 3A Frontier District girls’ basketball semifinals on Thursday night.

  • EHS boys seventh, girls eighth...

    Initially, the sheer number of athletes on Evergreen head coach Jarod Roberts’ team and the diversity of their talent was overwhelming, but on Friday he was overwhelmed with pride as his team finished the season at Steamboat Springs at the state championships.

  • Condit proves to be not your ...

    DENVER — It may have been Zander Condit’s first trip to the 3A state tournament, but he’s proven this season that he’s not your typical freshman.

    “It’s just another tournament. Yeah, it’s state and everything. People are here to watch me, but not everybody’s here to watch me. I’m not letting that get to me. It’s just another tournament, another match.”

  • Lady Huskies advance to Frontier...

    BAILEY — Platte Canyon had an inclination that Sequoia Garcia would be a problem with her outside shooting, and she was. Limiting her opportunities, especially after the first half, was crucial. The Lady Huskies did just that in the second half on Saturday.

  • Lobos tune-up for state

    LAKEWOOD — The road to redemption is sometimes long and arduous as the Conifer boys’ basketball team can attest to. But with its 74-58 victory over host Alameda on Thursday, the Lobos feel fresh and ready for the journey toward the 4A state playoffs.

  • EHS senior swimmers cap an...

    FORT COLLINS— One last time Kara Coughlin, Kate McDonald and Katelyn Kenchel swam together. 

    It was the final race of the 4A state championship meet — the 400-yard freestyle relay — at the Edora Pool Ice Center. The emotions were high and the finish was somewhat ironic.

  • McCaffrey’s late 3 holds off...

    Dylan McCaffrey is recognized for his pinpoint passing with a football, but he proved on Friday night that he can also shoot the 3-ball.

    McCaffrey, one of the best prep quarterbacks ever to come out Colorado, buried a last-minute and eventual game-winning 3-pointer in the corner for Valor Christian’s boys basketball team at Evergreen.

  • Wilkins, Lady Lobos lay building...

    THORNTON — Megan Wilkins sees the 100-yard backstroke as both an enemy and a friend.

    “I have to work 10 times harder in that. It doesn’t come easy at all,” the Conifer High freshman said. “Sometimes it happens, and sometimes it doesn’t.”

    It’s also her biggest challenge, and she likes a good challenge. She got that at the 3A state swimming championships at Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center.

  • Lobos run circles around Arvada

    ARVADA — History repeated itself on Monday night when the Conifer Lobos captured a blowout win over the Arvada Bulldogs  57-27, but this time it was on Arvada’s home court.

    This certainly was a painful loss for the Bulldogs, especially since it was senior night. But it wasn’t nearly as painful as their last match-up against the Lobos where they were defeated 82-27.
