  • Evergreen volleyball finishes...

    GOLDEN — Nearing the end of its regular season and with a lot to prove going into the postseason, the Evergreen volleyball team made a statement at Golden High School on Oct. 17 as the Cougars took down the Demons in four sets, 3-1.

    All season, the Cougars boasted strong team play and sat at No. 10 in Class 4A in the CHSAANow.com rankings as of Oct. 23, but with a 12-6 record, they’ve still had their fair share of setbacks this year.

    Tuesday’s game was a near-perfect metaphor for the way their season has gone.

  • Underestimated, unloved creature...

    Children fear them above all else. Over half of women and one in 10 men have varying degrees of aversion to them. One to three million of them are present per acre of land, and no human is more than 10 feet away from this creature at any time.

    Being portrayed as scheming, cunning beasts with bloodlust, such as Lord of the Rings’ Shelob or Harry Potter’s Aragog, it’s no surprise that spiders are so maligned and feared.

  • Conifer softball is headed to...

    DENVER — All season long, Conifer softball coach Carrie Oletski has praised this year’s team as one of her best.

    That sentiment came to fruition on Saturday at the All-City Stadium complex, when the Lobos secured a spot in the state tournament by winning two of three regional matchups to advance.

  • Evergreen gymnastics eyeing...

    LITTLETON — Even though its roster is weakened at the moment, the Evergreen High School gymnastics team is looking to improve upon its fifth-place finish from last season heading into the postseason this year.

  • Football in the Foothills:...

    For youngsters aspiring to play for the Colorado Rapids or the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team one day, Evergreen now has additional opportunities to help them build the skill sets and find the playing time they need to make it to the big leagues.

    Or, simply to have fun.

    The area has two soccer programs for young children: one run by the Evergreen Park & Recreation District and the other run by Altitude Soccer.

  • After league, Cougars prepare...

    LITTLETON — Going into the 4A/5A Jeffco League meet on Thursday at Clement Park, the Evergreen cross country team had a strong showing in most of its competitions.

    After finishing third and fourth in the respective boys and girls races at league, the Cougars are hoping they can carry that momentum into regionals and, with a little luck, state in the following weeks.

  • Huskies fall to Golddiggers...

    BAILEY — Clear Creek volleyball may have won its match against Platte Canyon on Oct. 10, but it lost much more when senior Brittany Burr went down with an ankle injury in the middle of the second game.

  • Bearing respect for binging...

    The drying leaves rattle in the breeze, a morning chill freshens the air, and, in the distance, the shrill echo of a majestic bull elk signals that fall has arrived. On a mountain path, there are well-placed mounds of scat, laden with seeds, indicating that a bear stood in that very spot not so long ago.  

  • Evergreen golf finishes runner-...

     

    LITTLETON — For the first time in school history, in a rally from Bridger Tenney, Clayton Whitton, Xan Anderson and Nolan Miller, the Evergreen golf team finished runner-up in last week’s 4A state tournament, with Tenney coming in second place in the individual competition.

    “I’m extremely thankful that I was a part of this,” head coach Mike Kuzava said. “These guys kind of did their own bonding and coaching, and I was just along for the ride.

  • EHS football takes down Skyview...

    By Craig Harper

    EVERGREEN — Evan Price booted a game-winning field goal in his debut as his brother Davis’ replacement last season. And this year he hauled in his first touchdown pass, an 80-yarder no less.

    Those “firsts’’ were memorable for the Evergreen senior. But they paled in significance and satisfaction to when he accomplished both for the second time in the fourth quarter of a statement 10-9 win over Skyview on Friday. It was the third-straight victory for the Cougars (5-1 overall).
