  • Buzzer-beater sends Evergreen to...

    BOULDER — Evergreen senior Logan Newhall’s layup over the outstretched arms of Sand Creek’s 6-foot-2 Liah Davis sent the Cougars into uncharted territory.

  • Evergreen takes defensive road...

    EVERGREEN — Defense wins championships.

    If Evergreen’s girls basketball team can duplicate the defensive performance it had March 4 against Class 4A Jeffco rival D’Evelyn, the Cougars might very well be playing for a 4A state championship Saturday, March 12, in Boulder.

  • Sand Creek provides plenty of...

    EVERGREEN — Sand Creek has an impressive resumé heading into the Class 4A girls basketball state semifinal showdown against Evergreen.

    The Scorpions (24-1 record) is on a 24-game winning streak since losing their opener to Poudre back on Dec. 3. Holy Family, another 4A Final Four qualifier, is the only team Sand Creek didn’t defeated by double-digit points this season. Not to mention, Sand Creek was the 4A state runner-up a year ago.

  • Cougars advance to Final Four

    EVERGREEN — Defense was the name of the game March 4 as Evergreen punched its ticket to the Class 4A girls basketball state semifinals next week in Boulder.

    The Cougars beat 4A Jeffco rival D’Evelyn for a third time this season in the all-Jeffco state quarterfinal Friday night at Evergreen High School. Evergreen cruised to a 49-26 victory.

  • Evergreen Cougars sitting pretty

    EVERGREEN — The pieces of the puzzle continue to fall into place for Evergreen’s girls basketball team.

    Class 4A playoff victories over Rifle and Windsor on Feb. 26 and 27, along with No. 1 seed Longmont getting upset in its playoff opener, left the Cougars as the top seed remaining in the Tanya Haave Region.

    By Craig Harper — For the Courier

    EVERGREEN — A second-straight loss in the first round of the Class 4A girls state basketball tournament would have been devastating to Evergreen’s core group of four seniors.

    For a good portion of the Feb. 26 postseason opener against Rifle, an early exit was a definite possibility for the No. 2 seed in the Tanya Haave Region.

  • Skiers headed toward the...

    By Matthew Van Deventer — For the Courier

    EVERGREEN — While foothills ski teams are at a disadvantage because they can’t get to the slopes as often as their high-country opponents, several such as Evergreen, Platte Canyon and Clear Creek will be represented at the alpine and nordic skiing state championships Feb. 25 and 26 in Aspen.

    Teams compete in four events: giant slalom, slalom, skate and classic.

    EVERGREEN — Alex Aafedt, Brady Bokelman and Jack Kwiat walked off their home basketball court as winners for the final time Feb. 17.

  • Cougar gets state experience

    DENVER — Matt McNeil was hoping his stay at the state wrestling party at Pepsi Center would have lasted a little longer.

    The Clear Creek senior was pinned in 37 seconds by University senior Justin Anderson in McNeil’s opening Class 3A 152-pound match at the state tournament Feb. 18.
