    GOLDEN — Timing is everything. It’s a lesson Lane Hanson learned the hard way in his final two seasons wrestling for Evergreen High School.

    Both years he beat an opponent during the regular season but lost when it counted the most. 

  • Kisiel, Lady Cougars sweep...

    It took a while — 4 minutes, 33 seconds to be exact — before either Evergreen or Conifer scored in their Feb. 10 girls basketball encounter at Evergreen High School, but once the scoring began, there was no stopping junior Sam Kisiel.

  • Haas returns, seals EHS win at...

    Injuries, be it the broken back he suffered in October or the torn intestines last month, have hampered Evergreen point guard Nathan Haas. The only thing the senior could do was shoot free throws. Well, he’s pretty good at that as Conifer has found out multiple times this season.

    Haas scored 18 of his season-high 31 points from the charity stripe in his first game back after being out for nearly four weeks as Evergreen swept the season series from rival Conifer with a 53-39 victory on Feb. 10 at Evergreen High School.

  • Evergreen wins second straight...

    THORNTON — The practice hours were countless. Morning practices, afternoon practices, two-a-days. They added up. They also paid off in spades for the Evergreen Lady Cougars.

  • Passive Cougars struggling to...

    LAKEWOOD — Aggression is defined as an offensive action or attack. It’s also something that the Evergreen Cougars’ wrestling team is sorely lacking, head coach Lane Williams said Feb. 7 at the Bear Creek Pre-Regional tournament.

    “We’re not attacking enough. The guys are lethargic and not moving on their feet, and no one is getting takedowns,” Williams said.

    Brianna Curtis was scared to make the call. The Evergreen High senior and Colorado Rush girls soccer player had torn her right MCL after verbally committing to play for the University of Arkansas.  She wasn’t sure what this would do for that recruitment or her collegiate future.

    ARVADA — Coach Jeanne Godaire couldn’t have asked for a better birthday present than the one her Evergreen Lady Cougars gave her Feb. 7. Behind five victories and 27 finalists, the Lady Cougars captured a third consecutive 4A Jeffco League girls swimming championship at the George J. Meyers Pool. Evergreen finished with 530 points, outdistancing a gamed Valor Christian squad, which finished with 450 points.

    “It’s just a great day. I’m really excited for everybody,” Godaire said.

  • Streams near ski area eyed as...

    Endangered greenback cutthroat trout could get a new home in the Herman Gulch and Dry Gulch streams north of Loveland Ski Area.

    State Parks and Wildlife officials want to make way for Colorado’s state fish to reproduce in those streams by removing other fish populations there. Biologists plan to start the project sometime in February, according to Jennifer Churchill, a spokeswoman for Parks and Wildlife. Several of the officials discussed the project with Clear Creek’s county commissioners at a recent meeting.

  • First phase of Peaks to Plains...

    The first phase of the Peaks to Plains Trail in the Jeffco portion of Clear Creek Canyon is nearly completed, said Scot Grossman, Jeffco Open Space project manager.

    “All that’s missing is some railing,” Grossman said during his report to the Jeffco Open Space Advisory Committee on Feb. 5.
