    ARVADA — Conifer’s boys basketball team found its scoring touch in the nick of time on Jan. 23 at Arvada High School.

    Holding on to a 39-37 lead after three quarters against an improved Arvada squad, the Lobos scored 27 points in the final eight minutes to take a 66-48 road victory in the Class 4A/3A Colorado 7 league game.

    Despite Brush’s dominant performance against the Conifer Lobos wrestling team last Tuesday, Conifer’s Zander and Cayden Condit both showed they’re worthy of their top-15 rankings in their respective weight classes.

    Although Brush came out on top 60-12, the Condit siblings both notched pins in impressive fashion.

    WINTER PARK — In a show of force on Thursday at the Winter Park Resort, the Evergreen High School ski team dominated on the mountain in its first slalom race of the season.

    The girls’ team won the race, and the boys finished second.

    The team, which represents members from all Jeffco high schools, saw immense success from a wide range of skiers, as four girls finished in the top 10 and three boys followed suit. In all, 19 skiers qualified for state in that discipline.

    WINTER PARK — The Platte Canyon ski team fared well on the slalom course at a meet featuring eight schools at Winter Park Resort on Thursday.

    On the more difficult-than-normal course, the Huskies boys and girls both finished seventh.

  • No. 4 Evergreen devours Eagles

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — Going into Wednesday’s game at No. 3 Golden, the fourth-ranked (per CHSAANow.com) Evergreen girls basketball team needs all the momentum it can get.

    On Friday night at then-No. 6 Valor Christian, it got just that as it defeated the Eagles handily, 52-33, to advance to 13-1 on the season.

  • Depleted Huskies take their...

    EVERGREEN — For Ruger Bixler, the start to the wrestling season was difficult. After all, the Platte Canyon junior was coming back to the team after taking a year off. He needed to knock the rust off, you could say.

    So getting two matches in the Huskies’ double dual with Battle Mountain and Byers on Thursday night at Clear Creek High School was crucial.

    “You can learn from anything I guess, any match,” Bixler said. “Whether it’s a win or a loss, it’s good to have that experience to build off of.”

  • Lady Huskies suffer tough loss...

    BAILEY — In a season that’s been up and down for the Platte Canyon girls’ basketball team, the Huskies fell to their rivals, the Clear Creek Golddiggers, at home in rough fashion 77-36.

    Platte Canyon senior point guard Alison Kulesza came back from an illness to lead the Huskies with nine points, followed by senior guard Abby Schmidt, who added six more.

  • Platte Canyon boys’ hoops no...

    BAILEY — In a season filled with struggles, the Platte Canyon boys’ basketball team continued the trend when rival Clear Creek came to town on Saturday afternoon.

    Following the pattern of their turnaround season, the Diggers went into rival Husky territory and showed no mercy to their hosts, commanding the pace of the game from start to finish as the Diggers defeated them, 67-27.

  • Cougar, Lobo teams fare well in...

    LAKEWOOD — The Evergreen girls swimming team is doing its best to show that even in a season of transition, the Cougars remain ultra-competitive.

    Head coach Jeanne Godaire is calling it quits after 12 years leading the program, sharing duties for 2017-18 with co-head coach Liz Hudd.

    It would seem like they have their work cut out to keep Evergreen among the state’s elite in 4A before a drop to 3A next season, but the Cougars are off to a great start, finishing first at their most recent meet.

  • Hibernate, migrate or circulate?

    Wildlife has evolved astonishing tactics to cope with extreme weather. Like retired New Jersey snowbirds descending to West Palm Beach in the fall, hummingbirds spurn winter, turning their iridescent feathered backs on Colorado and heading south to friendlier habitat.
    Bears vanish into dens to hibernate, slowing their metabolism enough to survive the winter without eating or drinking.
