    BOULDER — Evergreen senior Logan Newhall’s layup over the outstretched arms of Sand Creek’s 6-foot-2 Liah Davis sent the Cougars into uncharted territory.

    EVERGREEN — Sand Creek has an impressive resumé heading into the Class 4A girls basketball state semifinal showdown against Evergreen.

    The Scorpions (24-1 record) is on a 24-game winning streak since losing their opener to Poudre back on Dec. 3. Holy Family, another 4A Final Four qualifier, is the only team Sand Creek didn’t defeated by double-digit points this season. Not to mention, Sand Creek was the 4A state runner-up a year ago.

    EVERGREEN — Defense wins championships.

    If Evergreen’s girls basketball team can duplicate the defensive performance it had March 4 against Class 4A Jeffco rival D’Evelyn, the Cougars might very well be playing for a 4A state championship Saturday, March 12, in Boulder.

    Soon the ice will break up on Evergreen Lake, and migrating ducks will begin to appear. Usually blue-winged teal are the first to arrive. It is interesting to keep track of the large variety of ducks that can be seen on this little lake.

    Ducks are usually divided into two main groups. The so-called tip-up ducks or puddle ducks are those that tip their tail up into the air, and their necks and heads down into the water to feed in relatively shallow water. There are 16 species of puddle ducks in four genera.

  • Cougars advance to Final Four

    EVERGREEN — Defense was the name of the game March 4 as Evergreen punched its ticket to the Class 4A girls basketball state semifinals next week in Boulder.

    The Cougars beat 4A Jeffco rival D’Evelyn for a third time this season in the all-Jeffco state quarterfinal Friday night at Evergreen High School. Evergreen cruised to a 49-26 victory.

    Evergreen residents are asking the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission to remove restrictions at the Mount Evans State Wildlife Area that prohibit hiking and other recreational use from mid-September until November.

    “We’re asking the commission to go back to historical usage,” said Peter Jacobson, an area resident who enjoys hiking in the Mount Evans area.

    Once more Evergreen Audubon has some bluebird and chickadee nest boxes for sale.

    The boxes are made of cedar and don’t need painting unless you so desire. Nest boxes seem to become more and more expensive, but these Audubon boxes are the best prices I have seen anywhere. Lumber keeps going up in price, but since club members volunteer their time to help build the boxes, they can still be sold at a reasonable price and make a little money for other club activities.

  • Evergreen Cougars sitting pretty

    EVERGREEN — The pieces of the puzzle continue to fall into place for Evergreen’s girls basketball team.

    Class 4A playoff victories over Rifle and Windsor on Feb. 26 and 27, along with No. 1 seed Longmont getting upset in its playoff opener, left the Cougars as the top seed remaining in the Tanya Haave Region.

    By Craig Harper — For the Courier

    EVERGREEN — A second-straight loss in the first round of the Class 4A girls state basketball tournament would have been devastating to Evergreen’s core group of four seniors.

    For a good portion of the Feb. 26 postseason opener against Rifle, an early exit was a definite possibility for the No. 2 seed in the Tanya Haave Region.
