  • Offense lifts Cougars past Lobos...

    CONIFER -- Good pitching and timely hitting can win you a lot of baseball games. Evergreen found that out Monday afternoon as it defeated rival Conifer 13-4 at Conifer High School.
    Jack Hudd took the mound with elements that usually haunt pitchers. With cold temperatures and high wind pitchers typically have a tough time staying in a good flow, but not Hudd. The right-hander made quick work of the Lobos in his four innings of work, giving up just two hits while fanning two. 

  • Evergreen girls basketball...

    DENVER — Keigan Drysdale, with tears in her eyes, walked to center court and clutched the 4A state girls basketball championship trophy.
    “It was insane. I never thought that we would be here. I would never have thought that I would be the only senior on a state championship-winning team, and I couldn’t have done it without my team,” Drysdale said. “The reason that we’re so good is because we all need each other. We all use each other. It’s not just one player. I can’t stop crying.”

    Visitors to Chow Down Pet Supplies in Bergen Park may wonder why the store counter seems so wide and empty. Instinctively, we turn to the right, expecting to see two lethargic, lounging cats that were a fixture in the store for more than two decades. Butch and Sundance were a constant presence at the store, presenting lazy tummies and chins for obligatory scratches.

    DENVER – Claudia Dillon and Baylee Galan-Browne scored 11 points each and the Evergreen Lady Cougars led from start to finish en route to the school’s first 4A state girls basketball title Saturday with a 45-35 win over Pueblo South at the Denver Coliseum.

  • Baseball: Third inning lifts...

    FORT CARSON -- Five runs in the third inning gave Evergreen the lead for good as it topped the Fountain-Fort Carson Trojans 11-7 on Thursday.
    The Cougars entered the top half of the third inning in a 2-2 deadlock with the Trojans, but Evergreen's bats came to life propelling them to the victory.

  • Baseball: Conifer opens 2017...

    THORNTON –– Matt Aceto and Jackson Hale combined for six RBIs as Conifer routed Thornton 20-1 in its season opener on Thursday. The game was called after four innings due to the mercy rule.
    The Lobos scored four runs in the opening frame. Mark Ness got things started with an RBI single. Hale hit a sacrifice fly to center, tallying another for the Lobos as they led 3-0. Conifer finished the inning with a fourth run when Chris Wachtl singled to right, scoring John Betsch.

    DENVER – At the start of the 2016-17 season, the Evergreen Lady Cougars didn’t know how good they would be, having graduated six seniors, including the school’s all-time leading scorer in Samantha Kisiel.

    Yet, the Evergreen Lady Cougars are back in the 4A state championship game.

    Claudia Dillon had 19 points and 12 rebounds, while Keigan Drysdale added 11 points in EHS’ 45-29 win over Pueblo West in the 4A Final Four on Thursday afternoon at the Denver Coliseum.
