    In trail racing, course knowledge can be a curse or a blessing, as was the case for the men’s and women’s winners of the Evergreen Mountain 15K.

    CJ Hitz, a Colorado Springs resident running the course for the first time, literally lost his way at the top of Evergreen Mountain when he held a substantial lead in the June 13 opener of the five-race Evergreen Trail Racing Series, whose title sponsor is The Wild Game.

  • Two types of doves appearing at...

    Yesterday I received a report on last year’s Thanksgiving Bird Count. This count is done at your home feeding station for one hour on Thanksgiving Day. It is held in 12 western states, so it is especially interesting to western birders.

    Last year, the five most numerous birds seen remained the same as they have been for several years. The most commonly seen birds were 1, dark-eyed juncos; 2, house sparrows; 3, house finches; 4, black-capped chickadees; and 5, mourning doves. There were a total of 137 species seen in the 12-state area.

  • Dredging of Evergreen Lake will...

    Dredging Evergreen Lake quickly and efficiently could require a backhoe and a "semi-permeable membrane," not a pontoon boat, and officials now say the work won't be done this spring or early summer.

  • Coach of the year: Rob Molholm,...

    Rob Molholm can look fondly back on the 2014 football season and cherish numerous memories. From the one-sided Mountain Bowl victory over rival Conifer — the first in Molholm’s six seasons as Evergreen’s football coach — to the season-opening thumping of what turned out to be a decent Lewis-Palmer team, to a nail-biting win over Classical Academy and a league championship victory over D’Evelyn, he has plenty of memories to reflect on.

  • Female athlete of the year:...

    Lindsay Morrow doesn’t give much thought to her individual accomplishments.
    The Evergreen High School senior said that the girls swimming team focused more on the team success, such as winning back-to-back 4A team championships the past two seasons. But there’s no question that Morrow’s personal accolades played a significant role in the Lady Cougars’ conquest.

    The opportunities and desire were there for Evergreen standout Marcus Cassin to play college football at the NCAA Division II or III level following his graduation last month. But his body was sending mixed messages.
    So, after enduring the wear-and-tear of the year-round requirements of playing three high school sports for four years, the Canyon Courier’s Male Athlete of the Year turned down offers to play football for Redlands and Chapman, a pair of private California schools that competed in Division III.

    Evergreen High School’s girls basketball camp has been running for nearly two decades, but this year the elementary and middle school campers are getting some extra coaching from a pro.
    Cougars junior varsity coach Cheryl Newhall is leading this year’s Cougar Camp. Earlier in the year, Newhall contacted pro basketball player and 2008 Evergreen graduate Tricia Oaks to help coach the girls.

  • Building the EHS mystique

    At times, it would’ve been difficult to notice that the Evergreen Cougars’ summer tournament team hadn’t practiced once prior to the start of the Colorado Dugout Club Classic tournament. Then, at other times, it was as clear as day.
