  • 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.

  • Sora rails occasionally heard,...

    Recently, Loie Evans heard two, maybe three sora rails at Evergreen Lake. It has been a couple of years since they were heard at the lake. Rarely are they seen.

    The adult sora is unmistakable, a small chicken-like bird with a black throat and yellow bill.

  • Cost more than doubles for bike...

    The cost has more than doubled to build a bike path on the north side of Interstate 70 for a 2-mile stretch between the Genesee and El Rancho exits.

    New railings are required on the path because of steep drop-offs, and constructions costs have risen, making for a $1.45 million increase from the previous $1.25 million estimate, according to Emily Wilfong, a Colorado Department of Transportation spokeswoman.

    State transportation officials have received "enhancement funds" for the path, which is planned to be built starting in August, Wilfong said.

EHS hadn’t won in the postseason since 1999, but the Cougars erased that drought with a 24-7 win over Glenwood Springs in the 3A state playoff opener in November. Evergreen went 11-1 in the 2014 season, winning another 3A Metro North title in the process.
