  • Evergreen High School poms takes...

    DENVER — All of the hard work that the Evergreen poms team put in for the past months finally paid off on Saturday in the 4A state spirit competition at the Denver Coliseum.
    The Cougars placed 12th in the pool of 24 teams, scoring a 74.4667.
    Their routine included a variety of moves, including a triple turn, six tours into a double turn and aerials.
    From the spectators’ viewpoint, they looked perfectly in-sync during a very energetic routine.

  • Cougar boys plagued by ball-...

    EVERGREEN — In its second game of the season, the Evergreen boys basketball team couldn’t get the job done on Friday night after a sluggish start on offense against visiting Silver Creek as it fell, 58-45.

    Silver Creek, ranked sixth in the CHSAANow.com Class 4A poll, outpaced the Cougars all night on the offensive end, and Evergreen’s defense didn’t do much to stop it on the other end of the court either — aside from the third quarter.

    The Conifer High School girls basketball team came up short against the Demons of Golden High School on Nov. 29, falling 63-32.

    Senior Casey Scheffer led the way with eights points and a steal for the Lobos in a game in which they seemed to find difficulty getting into a rhythm. Despite the result, coach Cara Walderman was positive about her team’s performance and attitude.

  • Highway overpasses successful at...

    The sun was warm as we gathered on Vail Pass last July. Paige Singer, a biologist for Rocky Mountain Wild, and Lisi Lohre, Citizen Science intern for the Denver Zoo, handed out hardhats and bright orange vests to the three volunteers before we piled into an SUV. We drove to a spot between Copper Mountain and Vail Pass, and parked on the shoulder along westbound Interstate 70, near where a number of motion-triggered cameras had been placed in the spring.

  • Cougar girls poised for another...

    It may be hard to improve on its 4A state championship from last year — the first in school history — but that won’t stop the Evergreen girls’ basketball team from likely dominating its competition on the hardwood this season.

    It certainly doesn’t hurt that they only lost one senior following the 2016 season.

  • Five Lobo students commit to...

    CONIFER — Five athletes from Conifer will be taking their talents into the collegiate sphere next year.

    On Nov. 14 at Conifer High School, Isabel Arnold, Madeleine Foster, Cole Hollander, Nick William and Kyle Butler signed their letters of intent to play a variety of sports — lacrosse, soccer, cross country and track — at the next level.

    Isabel Arnold, who says she can play almost anywhere on the soccer field, signed her letter of intent to play at LeTourneau University in Longview, Texas.

    It may only her first year as head coach at Platte Canyon, but Becca Hammon is already making waves in the girls’ basketball program for the better.

  • Conifer boys hope to add on to...

    Conifer High School is looking forward to what could be the best season in boys’ basketball coach Eric Valerio’s tenure.

    Although he’s only been around for five years, Valerio helped take the team to its first state tournament berth last year, before the Lobos lost in the first round to Glenwood Springs. It was something that hadn’t been done in the nine years before he took over as head coach.

    With seven seniors returning this year, they’re hoping they can take that accomplishment to another level.

    Sunday marked the end of daylight saving time, and with the shifting hours of our daily routines, wildlife can be caught off guard. Bewilderingly, the human world around them has been altered overnight. The result of this confusion is often car accidents.

  • Cougars fall in first round of...

    By Levi Waddell

    LAKEWOOD — Despite being the higher seed headed into Saturday’s first-round playoff matchup at Trailblazer Stadium, the Evergreen Cougars (9-2) were unable to stop the Rifle Bears’ (9-2) potent rushing attack as they fell 37-10. This marks the second year in a row the Cougars were unable to reach the second round of the playoffs.

    It was evident from Rifle’s first drive that the Cougar defense was going to struggle with the Bears’ Wing T offense.
