  • Lady Lobos struggle to match TJ’...

    DENVER — It’s hard playing on the road. Not many teams can play well out of their element, especially when their opponent is known for being fiercely aggressive. Such was the case for the Conifer Lady Lobos, who lost 57-27 at Thomas Jefferson on Jan. 30.

  • Debrunner sisters carry Lady ...

    Ianna Debrunner feels as if she’s swimming pretty well this late in the season, but she says she’s still not at her best. The Conifer High senior hopes she can get there.

    Well, she was pretty good Jan. 27 in the 200-yard individual medley at Wulf Rec Center. Debrunner swam a time of 2 minutes, 31.71 seconds, clipping Golden’s Emma MacCallum at the finish line as part of a triangular meet, which also included Standley Lake.

  • Lady Cougars complete sweep of...

    DENVER — Sun Tzu famously said,  “If you know the enemy and yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” The Evergreen Lady Cougars showed no signs of fear at they defeated host D’Evelyn 49-39 on Jan. 27.

    This was the second time the second-ranked Lady Cougars have defeated the Lady Jaguars this season. The last time the played one another Evergreen won 56-43 at home.

  • Cougars are riding high

    Sometimes emotions can be a motivator for a team. 

    For Rhys Pennington-Sayler and the Evergreen Cougars, the raw passion the senior guard displayed after his rebound putback midway through the third quarter was the motivator the Cougars needed against visiting D’Evelyn on Jan. 27.

  • Balanced attack sparks short-...

    No Samantha O’Brien and no Jac Harvey proved to be no problem for the Clear Creek Lady Golddiggers. Missing their starting point guard (sprained ankle) and a key reserve (disciplinary reasons) had little effect on CCHS, which had three players score in double figures and 10 score in all in a 66-23 rout of Platte Canyon on Jan. 21 at Clear Creek High School.

  • Diggers fend off slow start, ...

    When Platte Canyon’s boys’ basketball team opened its Jan. 21 road game at Clear Creek on a 12-1 run, the host Golddiggers had to question what exactly they were doing. They knew they had to settle down and play their game, and that’s exactly what they did.

    A 14-0 CCHS run between the first and second quarters turned the tables and a later 18-3 surge between the third and fourth quarters opened the floodgates as the Golddiggers pulled away for a 78-59 victory.

  • Golden hands EHS first loss of...

    One could name any number of reasons for second-ranked Evergreen’s first loss of the season, a 43-41 setback to No. 5 Golden on Jan. 20 at Lo Hunter Gymnasium at EHS. There was the early foul trouble for sophomore standout Claudia Dillon. There could be the lack of outside shooting. There could be a second-quarter scoring drought that benefitted the Lady Demons’ early success.

  • Cougars’ balance, zone add up to...

    The challenge in front of them, namely 6-foot-6 Adam Thistlewood and 6-5 Kayden Sund, stood tall, but the Evergreen Cougars weren’t intimidated. If anything, they embraced the daunting task and tackled it head on Jan. 20 at Lo Hunter Gymnasium at EHS.

  • Flinging the ball around

    Seven, eight, maybe nine balls line the center line. Players, as many as eight to 10 on a side, race up from the baseline, picking up or swatting as many balls back toward their side of the court. 

    Once back, then it’s on. The dodgeballs fly. Lots of them. Not necessarily all at the same time, but enough to pick off the opposition one at a time.

  • Lobos overcome sluggish 1st half...

    CONIFER — Conifer’s first boys basketball win in the 4A Colorado 7 League won’t go down as a classic. In fact, most agreed that the 67-58 home win over Alameda on Jan. 13 was one of the Lobos’ poorest efforts of the season — at least for the first half.
