    DENVER — The only way Conifer’s start to the 2017 cross country season would have been better is if the Lobo boys and girls had finished second and first with Jeffco League rival D’Evelyn in the fields.

    The Jaguar hosts, who compete with Conifer at the 3A level in the sport, stepped up to Division I (big schools) for the D’Evelyn Dash on Saturday, leaving Division II (small schools) open for the Lobos to dominate.

    Which they did, with the exception of the SkyView Academy boys.

    The Evergreen High School softball team started out its season in a rough way, losing its first official game after the Cougars’ game the day before was canceled. But, after dropping Thursday’s contest to Fairview High School in Evergreen, there are plenty of positives to look forward to throughout the rest of the season.

    “It’s our first game and I’ve got six transfers, so they haven’t worked together before,” head coach Della Mitchel said. “This is kind of to be expected.”

    For the past 13 years, Evergreen resident Mark Johnson has morphed into the voice of the University of Colorado Buffaloes, calling games and conducting interviews for KOA radio. Now, after severing ties with the radio station, he’s been named the director of audio broadcasting for CU athletics.

  • A day of tri-ing for a good cause

    Buchanan Rec Center was inundated with close to 200 kids participating in the eighth annual Evergreen Kids Triathlon on Sunday.

    They biked, ran and swam their way to fitness, all while raising money for the Evergreen Park & Recreation District’s Special Needs Program. This year, the event raised $4,725 from registration fees.

    Families come from around the metro area to participate in the event, which is low-key because no one keeps track of times, and all of the kids are encouraged to participate.

    Some readers only buy non-fiction books on the grounds that nothing is more riveting than real-life events. Certain news stories result in rueful head shaking, meaning “you can’t make this stuff up.” On occasion, the term “fake news” might be employed to express doubt about the origin of information. Let me assure you that the “terms of venary” below may be hard to take seriously, and yet, they were a status symbol in the 13th and 14th centuries.

    The life of an independent league baseball player isn’t always glamorous, but for Evergreen High School graduate Riley Krane, it’s the next step to achieving his dream of becoming a Major League ball player.

    Heading into Monday’s opening 4A Jeffco League golf tournament, Evergreen High School was feeling strong, confident and ready to defend last year’s title.

    This season, however, the team will be battling some inexperience while still staying strong at the top of its pecking order.

    On Monday at Deer Creek Golf Course in Littleton, the Cougars walked away victorious with a collective score of 17-over par, six strokes over their fiercest 4A competitor, Valor Christian.

    EVERGREEN — For the 39th straight year, the town race down Upper Bear Creek Road on Sunday finished as another huge success, with running aficionados from all over Colorado coming to try out the picturesque course.

    It’s not often that you hear about an athlete that spends his entire career — from high school to the pros — in the same state. In fact, before the Colorado Rapids selected Evergreen High School’s Sam Hamilton back in January, it was almost unheard of.
