  • Dinegar, Jaguars pull away from...

    DENVER — Just 3 minutes into the game and Charles Dinegar was already having himself a game. The D’Evelyn junior had scored the team’s first nine points and was creating a defensive mismatch for the Conifer Lobos on Dec. 16. That’s when Conifer employed a 1-3-1 zone intended to slow Dinegar down.

  • Evergreen dominant at Jeffco ...

    LITTLETON — Though the 200 individual medley is one of Tyler McMonigle’s favorite races, it’s also a difficult one to transition out of each stroke. That’s because the Evergreen High junior has to cope with scoliosis, a condition she’s had since birth.

    The first 50 yards of the individual medley — the butterfly — can be difficult, she said.

  • Lady Lobos pick up their first...

    ARVADA — There were plenty of reasons to be pessimistic. Showing up to the game late. Opening up in a 2-0 hole after a technical was called for wearing the wrong-colored jerseys. Falling behind 8-2 early on. 

    It was far from the kind of start the Conifer Lady Lobos would’ve preferred.

    But head coach Cara Walderman wasn’t too concerned with any of that. If anything, she was taking the blame for it.

  • Winter solstice heralds the...

    (Reprinted from Dec. 28, 2009)

    Looking out the window, I still see snow on the ground, and we will have snow for at least three more months. However, this past Monday, Dec. 20, was the changing point, and yesterday was the beginning of the change, the winter solstice, or the first day of winter.

    That’s the day my husband, Bill, used to call the best day of the year because it meant that from that day forward every day became a bit longer, and this meant spring was on its way. The best time of the year.

    GOLDEN — Inside the 3-point line belonged to Golden’s boys basketball team Dec. 9.

    The Demons, ranked No. 4 in the CHSAANow.com Class 4A boys hoops poll, limited Conifer to just two made 2-point field goals in the non-league game against former 4A Jeffco League foes.

    EVERGREEN — Connor Peterson feels like he’s gotten better as a wrestler, but he also knew after his match Dec. 12 against Clear Creek’s George Gothman that the Golddiggers sophomore is an improving grappler as well.

  • Condit continues early success

    CONIFER — In high school years, Zander Condit is a babe in the woods roaming the halls at Conifer. But on the wrestling mat, the freshman struts like a seasoned veteran.

    Evergreen graduated five key seniors from last season’s 4A girls basketball runner-up team and returned just one of note for 2016-17, so a drop-off of sorts would be understandable.

    Voters in the CHSAANow.com preseason poll apparently weren’t convinced, slotting the Lady Cougars at No. 4.

  • Huge surge propels EHS to victory

    Keigan Drysdale expected more of a press from Silver Creek. Her Evergreen Lady Cougars, ranked No. 4 in the CHSAANow.com 4A preseason poll, definitely prepared for such, she said. 

    They also prepared for more of a zone defense than what they saw. It didn’t come. At least not to the point of slowing down the Lady Cougars.

  • Schedule testing Conifer early on

    DENVER — Eric Valerio’s last two Conifer boys basketball teams posted 8-0 records in non-conference play against mostly inferior competition, only to finish well below .500 in the 4A Jeffco League and be left out of the state tournament.

    Lesson learned the hard way.
