    Cougars score a pair of road wins to open the 2015 season
    PARKER — Evergreen High has opened the Steve Jones era on a good note, winning its first two games of the 2015 season. The Cougars pounded out a 17-8 road win at Ponderosa on March 19.

    Evergreen opened the season with a 2-1 win in 10 innings over Erie three days earlier.

    Dylan Schmoker had two of the Cougars’ five hits in the win over Erie. Alec Moens, who had one of the other three hits, picked up the win.

  • EHS handles uniqueness of Jeffco...

    LAKEWOOD — Camille Morales called the 4x1,600-meter run a “good mental workout.” It is that indeed. It’s also a grind.

    The unique run — four consecutive runners tackling the track at Jeffco Stadium four times around — is not one of the more common events on the track and field slate. As a matter of fact, March 18 will probably be the only time this season that Morales, Caitlin Schmitt, Sydney Grob and Carolyn Graven will run it. But they ran it faster than anyone else at the 4A Jeffco League Relays.

  • Holley picks up where she left...

    GOLDEN — Applewood Golf Course is sort of a special place for Natalie Holley. Last year, as a freshman, the Evergreen golfer made her high school varsity debut here. 

    She didn’t play as well as she would March 18 in the 4A Jeffco League season opener, but it was a great learning experience.

  • First spring migrants appear in...

    As March draws to a close, it feels more like spring every day. I love this time of year when winter slowly loses its grip on the land, and spring gets closer every day.

    Some days when the sky is blue and the temperature rises well above 60 degrees, you feel like spring is already here. Those of us who have lived here for awhile know better; we also know it may snow tomorrow, and it will be a long time still before Elk Meadow looks green instead of grayish-tan.

  • Many local trees from willow...

    The willow family, Salicaceae, contains many of the deciduous trees found locally. Most everyone has learned to recognize the quaking aspen, the trees that turn our falls into a golden splendor. These and a few others are in the genus populus.

  • Cougars finding their way after...

    WHEAT RIDGE — First-year Evergreen High boys swimming coach Marc Rios has taken a hands-off approach early on in the 2015 season. He’s gone as far as to let the Cougars choose which events they want to swim in. That was the case in Evergreen’s tri-meet at Wheat Ridge Rec Center on March 13 along with the host Farmers and Ralston Valley, in which the Cougars placed second with 97 points.

  • Lady Cougars find net late, stay...

    It wasn’t for a lack of effort, but it took a while — quite a while — for the Evergreen Lady Cougars to find a rhythm in their home opener March 14 against Pueblo Centennial. However, once they did, there was little the visiting Lady Bulldogs could do to stop them at Evergreen High School.

    Second-half goals from Sofia Weiner and Jahna Pusedu in the final 17 minutes erased a scoreless tie as Evergreen improved to 3-0 on the young season with a 2-0 victory.

  • Owls help keep rodent population...

    The great horned owl is probably the most common owl in the Evergreen area. A few of the smaller owls may be nearly as common during their brief breeding period, but the great horned owl is a permanent resident in local areas where adequate food and nesting sites are available.
