  • Evergreen turns it up in the 2nd...

    If there was ever a tale of two halves, it was the Evergreen Lady Cougars’ 4A state tournament opener on Friday night.

    The first half wasn’t exactly anything to remember offensively, outside of a 9-0 run to close the first quarter. Evergreen led at the intermission 19-7, thanks largely to a defense that held the visiting Lady Stallions without a basket for 8 minutes and 23 seconds.

  • Calm, collected Cougars prevail

    It starts with yoga during practice, and Chase Rogers noted how head coach Scott Haebe has stressed to his Evergreen Cougars all season about being calm in the fourth quarter. Close your eyes and take a deep breath during a dead-ball situation. It came in handy Saturday night.

  • Lobos tune-up for state

    LAKEWOOD — The road to redemption is sometimes long and arduous as the Conifer boys’ basketball team can attest to. But with its 74-58 victory over host Alameda on Thursday, the Lobos feel fresh and ready for the journey toward the 4A state playoffs.

  • Lady Huskies advance to Frontier...

    BAILEY — Platte Canyon had an inclination that Sequoia Garcia would be a problem with her outside shooting, and she was. Limiting her opportunities, especially after the first half, was crucial. The Lady Huskies did just that in the second half on Saturday.

  • Condit proves to be not your ...

    DENVER — It may have been Zander Condit’s first trip to the 3A state tournament, but he’s proven this season that he’s not your typical freshman.

    “It’s just another tournament. Yeah, it’s state and everything. People are here to watch me, but not everybody’s here to watch me. I’m not letting that get to me. It’s just another tournament, another match.”

  • State wrestling qualifiers

    The following is a list of area grapplers from Conifer, Evergreen and Platte Canyon high schools who’ve qualified for the 2017 state wrestling championships. Conifer and Platte Canyon will compete in the 3A competition, which begins Thursday at 3 p.m. with the preliminary rounds at the Pepsi Center. Evergreen will wrestle in the 4A meet, which starts Thursday at 7:15 p.m.

  • Lobos run circles around Arvada

    ARVADA — History repeated itself on Monday night when the Conifer Lobos captured a blowout win over the Arvada Bulldogs  57-27, but this time it was on Arvada’s home court.

    This certainly was a painful loss for the Bulldogs, especially since it was senior night. But it wasn’t nearly as painful as their last match-up against the Lobos where they were defeated 82-27.

  • Wilkins, Lady Lobos lay building...

    THORNTON — Megan Wilkins sees the 100-yard backstroke as both an enemy and a friend.

    “I have to work 10 times harder in that. It doesn’t come easy at all,” the Conifer High freshman said. “Sometimes it happens, and sometimes it doesn’t.”

    It’s also her biggest challenge, and she likes a good challenge. She got that at the 3A state swimming championships at Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center.

  • McCaffrey’s late 3 holds off...

    Dylan McCaffrey is recognized for his pinpoint passing with a football, but he proved on Friday night that he can also shoot the 3-ball.

    McCaffrey, one of the best prep quarterbacks ever to come out Colorado, buried a last-minute and eventual game-winning 3-pointer in the corner for Valor Christian’s boys basketball team at Evergreen.

  • EHS senior swimmers cap an...

    FORT COLLINS— One last time Kara Coughlin, Kate McDonald and Katelyn Kenchel swam together. 

    It was the final race of the 4A state championship meet — the 400-yard freestyle relay — at the Edora Pool Ice Center. The emotions were high and the finish was somewhat ironic.
