  • Huskies’ late flurry spoils...

    Everything seemingly had turned in Evergreen’s favor as the third period wound down, and then came the fourth quarter. Senior night for the Cougars was spoiled in a matter of 3 minutes, 45 seconds as visiting Douglas County, behind three of Josh Miller’s four goals, scored five consecutive times and held off Evergreen 12-9 on May 2 at Evergreen High School.

  • EHS duo rallies, going to 4A...

    DENVER — Greta Duvenhage and Makayla Gallardo are going to state.
    Evergreen High’s No. 4 doubles tandem posted a come-from-behind 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 girls tennis victory over Colorado Academy’s Rachel Weeks and Hope Cherubini in a playback match in the 4A Region 1 tournament May 2 at Colorado Academy. They reached the playback after a similar comeback victory — 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 over Alexander Dawson’s Gaby Greenfield and Maddie Fagundo in the third-place match. The 4A state tournament is May 8-10 at Pueblo City Park.

  • Lobos squeeze out Cougars’ hopes

    CONIFER — Boy, what a difference a couple of weeks makes.

    Unlike their first meeting this season, in which Evergreen won a pitchers’ duel 3-2 courtesy of a two-out walk-off home run by Daniel Gibbins, the regular-season finale May 3 with rival Conifer was a slugfest from the get-go. But just like the previous meeting, the home team found a little magic in the bottom of the seventh.

  • Rare plant, falcon nest...

    During a recent study of plant and animal life at Staunton State Park, the rare budding monkey flower was found on the Black Mountain parcel, along with a peregrine falcon nest.

    Raquel Wertsbaugh, coordinator of the Colorado Natural Areas Program, talked about the discoveries during a presentation at the Jeffco Open Space Advisory Committee meeting May 1.

    Areas of exposed Precambrian granite also have been identified on Black Mountain, Wertsbaugh said. Rock climbing on the mountain could imperil the rare plants and the falcon nest, she remarked.

  • Course needs time, weather

    The bridge at No. 10 released from its bearings and floated down the river. The five-ton walkway ventured 135 yards downstream, the most dramatic scenery from the damage caused by Sept. 13’s flooding at Evergreen Golf Course.

  • Cougars rolling along, win 10th...

    By Craig Harper
    For the Courier
    An early-season coaching change and a tough home loss to Wheat Ridge to begin 4A Jeffco League play apparently were no big deal to Evergreen.
    The Cougars completed a 3-0 week that included atonement against the fourth-ranked Farmers with a 10-5 home victory over third-place Green Mountain on April 26. Evergreen pushed its winning streak to 10 and remained in position to share the 4A Jeffco title if both teams win out this week.

  • Consistent scores keep EHS in...

    ARVADA — The course was a little longer than what the Evergreen Lady Cougars have been used to in 2014, and the scores reflected that. Yet, still, Evergreen, thanks to consistent scoring from top to bottom, was right where it’s been for most of the 4A Jeffco League season.

  • Peaks to Plains Trail project...

    Eight golden shovels scraped into rocky Clear Creek County soil April 23 to signify the start of the long-gestating Peaks to Plains Trail project.

    Officials from Clear Creek and Jefferson counties, as well as state representatives, met for the groundbreaking ceremony on the side of U.S. 6 at Tunnel 5 on Clear Creek's Oxbow parcel.

  • Eight Evergreen High student-...

    Evergreen head football coach Rob Molholm has never had a Division-I football player before now, but this one is not your typical on-the-field prospect.
    For three years, Shelly Brobst has served as a team manager for the Cougars. On April 16, she was one of eight student-athletes to sign a letter of intent during a ceremony at Evergreen High School as she’ll be attending Colorado State University in the fall and working with the Rams’ football program.
    So is Brobst’s signing somewhat atypical of the usual student-athlete signings?
