  • Lady Cougars hammer Roosevelt

    Let’s face it not every birthday wish comes true, so it’s especially amazing when they do. Such was the case for Evergreen senior Annie Trimarco, whose 18th birthday wish was granted Dec. 12 when her team bested the Roosevelt Lady Rough Riders 76-20 in girls basketball action at Evergreen High School.

    “We had a loss (to Mullen, 41-36) and that made the girls really want the win tonight,” Evergreen head coach Amy Bahl said.

  • Little monsters on the wrestling...

    Quentin Willson can’t tell you what it is about wrestling that he likes so much, just that he does.

    “It’s just fun,” said the 13-year-old eighth-grader at Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen. He’s been wrestling since he was 4.

  • View from Colorado’s ‘park’...

    I am still at Elk Run, where I can receive some assistance when needed. When I look out the windows to the north, I can see the open meadows of Elk Meadow Open Space. When I look east or south, I can see the semi-open areas of widely scattered ponderosa pines across the grassy meadows, beyond which the trees grow closer to each other and a forest is formed.

  • 2014 all-conference football,...

    The following are all-conference selections for the 2014 fall season in football and volleyball:

  • Evergreen epitomizes hard work,...

    DENVER — Like a well-rehearsed chorus line, sort of like the Radio City Rockettes, Evergreen High’s poms team is a well-oiled machine.

    Their hair seemingly perfect, their movements equaled to that. Typically, as has been the case for years now, they can do no wrong.

  • Cougars impose their defensive...

    Evergreen head boys basketball coach Scott Haebe has made no bones about it. For his team to be successful, it will be because the Cougars’ man-to-man defense is stifling the opposition.

    In Evergreen’s home opener Dec. 4 against Fort Lupton, it took a quarter before the Cougars made their presence felt defensively, but it did eventually happen. It, in turn, opened up an offense that seemingly couldn’t miss in the second and third quarters of a 65-36 non-conference victory.

  • Starlings light up feeders...

    Early December is a dreary time of year. Winter has taken a fairly good grip on the land. Our landscape becomes mostly black and white. It is cold, and few exciting or unusual birds are to be seen.

    Only the hardiest winter birds come to the feeders. The fall migrant birds have all passed through. The year-round residents that exist here in the mountains are relatively few. The hairy and downy woodpeckers still appear, dressed in black and white except for a small red patch on the nape of the male, so they blend right into the winter landscape

  • Elegant waxwings grace winter...

    (Reprinted from Dec. 7, 2011)

    Many people complain to me that they find winter birding dull because there are no pretty birds around.

    True, the winter residents at most feeders, pine siskins, chickadees, nuthatches, hairy and down woodpeckers, house sparrows, house finches, and the various forms of the dark-eyed junco are mostly gray, brown, and black-and-white birds. Not very exciting or colorful, but they are still interesting.

  • Return of Hanson, sophomores...

    Lane Hanson admits it. The Evergreen senior wrestler went into last year’s regional tournament a little too cocky. Coming off a win over Valor Christian’s Coby Welch a week earlier at Bear Creek may have done more harm than good considering the end result. He finished fifth in arguably the toughest bracket of all the regionals.

  • James Morrato is the smart one

    When one talks about James Morrato, it’s not just what kind of basketball player he is, even though he was an all-conference honorable mention selection last season.

    It’s not the kind of soccer player he is, though he was first team all-conference in the fall. 

    And it’s not just the kind of student he is, though he does hold a 4.48 grade-point average, is the student body president and is a three-time state qualifier and national qualifier in DECA.
