  • Szuch, Cougars’ XC getting ready...

    NORTHGLENN — After just half the team competed in Friday’s Pat Amato Classic at Northwest Open Spaces, Evergreen cross country felt pretty good heading into regionals.

    Midway through the boys’ race on the sunny afternoon, the wind picked up to what felt like gale-force levels as a storm cell moved into the area. About 30 minutes later, midway through the girls’ race, coaches and officials pulled the competitors off the course due to nearby lightning, and they weren’t able to complete their course.

  • Golddiggers fall to Middle Park...

    By Alissa Noe

    EVERGREEN — All season long, Clear Creek volleyball has been rolling, but after a tough three-game skid that ended with a loss to Middle Park at home on Thursday, it’s hoping it can get back on track before the league and, eventually, state tournaments.

  • Huskies down Saints in strong...

    BAILEY — Early into the season, Platte Canyon football has been rolling. However, after a rough start to their homecoming game against Vail Christian on Saturday, its perfect record looked to be in jeopardy.

    That is, until it found its groove again in the second quarter. After regrouping and tightening their defense against a very good quarterback in senior Tom Engleby, the Huskies downed the Saints easily 43-22.

  • Evergreen soccer slides to...

     

    LAKEWOOD — After soldiering on through abysmal playing conditions on Sept. 26 at Lakewood Memorial Field, Evergreen soccer slid away with a narrow victory over Wheat Ridge, 4-3, in large part thanks to the efforts of junior striker Ryan Gutberlet.

    Through hard rain in the first half, players on both sides were slipping and falling all over the field, and splashing water a few inches every time they took a step. That made for difficult playing conditions, and altered the speed and bounce of the ball.

  • Conifer softball to host game...

    Conifer softball will host a game against Lakewood this Saturday that it added to its schedule with the hopes of raising money to donate to the Elk Creek Fire Department.

    Proceeds from the “Fire Game,” as Lobo head coach Carrie Oletski calls it, will go to a fire squad that helped save Richmond Hill in Conifer last winter from burning down.

  • EHS tennis looks to regionals...

     

    After losing a host of seniors last season, the Evergreen High School tennis team has been rebuilding this year, but that doesn’t deter the Cougars one bit, especially when looking toward the future.

    “Last year, we lost seven of our starting 11 so that everyone can get called up from JV and keep up and be able to get a bunch of wins in. We’re playing well, so as long as we can play well, then (our record) doesn’t really matter,” senior doubles player Carter Morrill said.

  • D’Evelyn bounces back to thwart...

    EVERGREEN — Peyton Wright had little doubt that her D’Evelyn Jaguars would be in for a battle against host Evergreen in the 4A Jeffco League volleyball opener on Sept. 26. It was just a matter of her team getting some momentum. Once the undefeated Jaguars did that, they were confident it would carry them through to victory.

  • Tenney, Cougars earn runner-up...

    LITTLETON – The Evergreen High School boys’ golf team, for the first time in program history, finished as the runner-up at the 4A state tournament on Tuesday at Raccoon Creek Golf Course.

  • Evergreen soccer defeats Conifer...

    By Craig Harper

    EVERGREEN — Saddled with a 1-5 record and a two-game losing streak, the last thing it seemed the Evergreen soccer team needed heading into the annual Mountain Cup against rival Conifer was the absence of head coach Ross Fowler on the sideline.

    But maybe having Fowler relegated to keeping statistics in the EHS press box was a shot in the arm for the Cougars, with Fowler on suspension for an undisclosed reason.

  • Conifer XC races well despite...

     

    DENVER — The Conifer High School cross country team may not have been at its strongest during the Denver North Viking Invitational on Sept. 19, but this uber-talented team isn’t concerned about the results one bit.

    The boys, without their top seven runners in the competition, finished 20th out of 25 teams. The girls, however, gave the best performance they could in spite of hot, sun-beaten temperatures as they finished seventh in the race.
