    BOYS SOCCER
    Evergreen blanked by Air Academy in Fowler’s debut
    COLORADO SPRINGS — Austin Dewing scored a hat trick as host and second-ranked Air Academy shut out third-ranked Evergreen 4-0 at District 20 Stadium on Aug. 28.

    Henry Yocum also scored for the Kadets.

    The game was the varsity head coaching debut for first-year Evergreen coach Ross Fowler.

  • Cougars hang tough at Indian Tree

    Liam Short has shot 2-over-par or better in every Jeffco League tournament this season. That’s how amazing a year the Evergreen sophomore is having, and it’s fun to watch him play, head coach Mike Kuzava said.

  • Schmitt, Evergreen boys win at...

    Caitlin Schmitt took first place in the girls’ 5,000-meter race in a time of 20 minutes, 9 seconds, and Evergreen’s boys won the team title with a score of 46 at the season opening Ponderosa Mustang Stampede on Aug. 28 in Parker.

  • Cougars dominant on defense,...

    Greysen Lincoln was hoping for something like the 21-yard fumble return the senior defensive lineman scored in the first quarter of Evergreen’s 2014 season opener, but he didn’t really think it was going to happen. 

    But that’s the kind of night it was for the Cougars in a Top-10 showdown that was anything but a marquee match-up.

    Evergreen, ranked No. 6 in CHSAA’s 3A preseason poll, dominated from start to finish in routing No. 9 Lewis-Palmer 38-0 on a cloud-covered Aug. 29 night at Evergreen High School.

  • First pine siskin heralds...

    Looking out my window early this morning, I saw a pine siskin at my feeder. The feeder is empty since I am all out of seed, so the bird did not stay long. However, pine siskins are frequent visitors to our winter feeders in this area.

  • Gentians bloom in the area as...

    August days have been hot summer days, much like they are in the East, but the nights here are usually quite cool. Clear skies and our altitude bring us start-spangled nights, but often temperatures drop in the low 40s. August is a rich, full month, as near to being full summer as it gets in Colorado. But it also brings the first signs of fall.

  • Kay, host Lady Cougars pick off...

    By Craig Harper
    For the Courier

    Evergreen’s top returning hitter Sarah Kay didn’t have her typical big offensive game in the Aug. 22 season opener. But the fourth-year starting catcher impacted the game early in a big way with her arm and instincts behind the plate.

    Kay kept Boulder, playing its fifth game in eight days, off the scoreboard in the top of the first inning by picking off its first two batters at third base.

  • EHS slow to find rhythm in opener

    Luke Camp said he wasn’t nervous, but the level of play will take some getting used to. It took a while for the Evergreen senior, who played at No. 2 singles last year, to find a comfort zone at No. 1 singles in the Cougars’ season opener Aug. 21 against D’Evelyn. By the time he found it, however, it was too little too late, at least this time around.

    Camp had his serve broken four times and he committed 11 double faults in a 6-2, 6-4 loss to Tom Hudson in Evergreen’s 7-0 rain-delayed loss to the Jaguars at the Wulf Recreation Center tennis courts.
