    EVERGREEN — There are few guarantees is sports.

    Take Evergreen’s boys basketball as an example. The Cougars (15-6, 9-4 in Class 4A Jeffco League) aren’t even locked into a spot in the 32-team 4A state tournament. Evergreen finished third behind Valor Christian (20-1, 12-1) and Golden (16-5, 12-1) in one of the two divisions in 4A Jeffco.

  • Clark continues to take swings

    ARVADA — After watching Bailey Mills and Katrin Lewis demolish both diving fields in the Jeffco League diving championship, Chatfield’s long-time coach suggested the Evergreen duo would go one-two at this week’s 4A state championship as well.

    However, after watching Valor Christian unseat her team atop the league throne, Evergreen coach Jeanne Godaire had her suspicions confirmed that a three-peat at state is unlikely.

    EVERGREEN — The door seemed ajar for Evergreen to snag its first victory over rival Golden since the 2012-13 boys basketball season.

     “I was thinking we had the best chance I’ve ever seen (to beat Golden),” Evergreen senior Brady Bokelman said Feb. 5 after the Class 4A Jeffco League battle. “I’ve played three years on varsity, and I’ve never seen a game that close with Golden at halftime.”

     “I think this is a great streak for us right now,” Evergreen coach Amy Bahl said. “This is when you want to be playing your better basketball.”
