  • Galan-Browne is an EHS standout...

    It seems as though Evergreen High School senior Baylee Galan-Browne can do it all.

    Whether volleyball or basketball, or competing in track, sports are just one piece to the complicated act that she juggles every day. On top of athletics, Galan-Browne balances the busy schedule of a student senate officer and an exceptional student who’s taken 10 to 12 AP and honors classes.

    Prior to the end of the fall semester, she boasted a 4.5 grade-point average and had only one B to her name in her high school career — an 89.9 percent.

  • All around, in every way

    Editor’s note: This story is part of a series celebrating exceptional student-athletes at area schools.

    Every so often, a student-athlete dominates in both sports and the classroom. At Platte Canyon High School, senior Alison Kulesza checks all the boxes for what it truly means to be a student-athlete. 

    Since her freshman year with the Husky athletics program, Kulesza has played basketball and volleyball, and competed in track, both as a runner and a thrower.

  • Snow and bikes can be a good...

    Are they adventure-seeking skiers in pursuit of more outdoor choices for their favorite season? Maybe they are impatient mountain bikers who yearn to be in the saddle, irked that biking season is months away.
    Perhaps these people simply revel in new experiences, welcome a change of pace or just will find any reason to be outside.

  • Technology help for the outdoors

    Surrounded by rugged peaks, wildflower meadows and trout-laden rivers, people living in Colorado revel in the breathtaking — sometimes quite literally — vistas and accompanying recreational choices. Even so, adversity may arise in the high country. Getting lost or injured in remote areas, dodging wildlife on highways or having animal encounters, possibly dangerous, are not uncommon.

  • Hibernate, migrate or circulate?

    Wildlife has evolved astonishing tactics to cope with extreme weather. Like retired New Jersey snowbirds descending to West Palm Beach in the fall, hummingbirds spurn winter, turning their iridescent feathered backs on Colorado and heading south to friendlier habitat.
    Bears vanish into dens to hibernate, slowing their metabolism enough to survive the winter without eating or drinking.

  • Cougar girls decimate Lobos in...

    EVERGREEN — The Evergreen girls’ basketball team just doesn’t know how to lose.

    In a raucous rivalry matchup at Evergreen High School between the Cougars — ranked No. 3 in the CHSAANow.com Class 4A poll — and the visiting Conifer Lobos on Dec. 20, the cats bested the dogs in a rout, 66-30.

    For the Cougars, senior power forward Claudia Dillon dominated the offense per usual with 21 points, followed by seniors Baylee Galan-Browne and Hannah Kennedy, who each added 12. For Conifer, senior guard Casey Schaeffer led with 11 points.

  • Conifer battles back in loss to...

    EVERGREEN — The Conifer boys basketball team may have fallen to its rivals in Evergreen High School on Dec. 20, but the Lobos didn’t go down without a fight.

    After being down 21 points at the half, the Lobos fought back in the second and cut Evergreen’s lead to single digits in the fourth quarter, but the early deficit was ultimately too much to overcome as the Cougars won 64-47.

  • To tree or not to tree

    While hiking near Edwards last week, my friend and I spotted a curious pattern of a broad object that seemed to have swept down the snowy path not long before we arrived.
    As we reflected on the beauty of our frosty surroundings, the thickets of evergreen trees with diverse shapes and sizes reminded us that ‘tis the season for folks to head for the woods with a saw and, permit in hand, choose the perfect tree to drag along the path (in this case, for a painfully long distance), and tie to the roof of the car for the trip home.

  • Husky girls rally in final...

    ENGLEWOOD — The Platte Canyon girls basketball team sure knows how to make a statement.

    After falling behind by nine points in the third quarter during its matchup at Englewood High School on Dec. 11, the Huskies pulled together in the fourth to not only overcome the deficit but steal away the win, 42-37. With their third straight win, the girls advanced to 3-3 on the season.

    Over the past few weeks, they’ve been playing for a greater cause.
