    Sprechen Sie Deutsch? It would come in handy if you’re an Evergreen tennis coach or player.
    Last fall, co-coaches Kris Nielsen and Bob Greenman welcomed German exchange student Dennis Von Kuczkowski to the boys’ team and he ended up playing No. 1 singles. This spring, there’s more of the same, as two German exchange students are playing major roles on the girls’ team, including junior Lena Wagner at No. 1 singles.
    “I wish we could fly to Germany and recruit,” quipped Nielsen.

  • Tenney, Lady Cougars take Jeffco...

    GOLDEN — Madison Tenney is kind of a quiet person, Evergreen head coach Mike Kuzava said, but the Lady Cougars senior is taking on more of a leadership role with the 2014 girls golf team. She’s not necessarily an out-front leader, but she’s embracing the role.
    “When you’re trying to build a program that is consistently good you need girls to lead the younger ones so that the younger ones know what to do when they get there,” Kuzava said.

  • Subspecies of dark-eyed junco...

    For some time now, I have thought I should write a column on the juncos that we are seeing at our feeders, but something or another seemed to come up every week, and I put it off. No matter what juncos we have had all winter, there will be new ones coming in as many of them migrate in the early spring to more northern breeding grounds.
    Juncos are commonly known as “snow birds” in many areas because they arrive just before the first snow and leave in the early spring. They spend the winter or snow season with us and move northward to nest.

  • Tenney cards 79 as EHS opens...

    As far as season openers go, the Elizabeth Invitational was a win-win for Evergreen’s girls golf program. For one, it’s been a long time coming that the Lady Cougars actually got to set foot on the Spring Valley Golf Course and play and, two, Madison Tenney is already playing at midseason form.

  • Evergreen struggles to find the...

    LAKEWOOD — Peter Jeans decided earlier in the week that his Evergreen Lady Cougars needed to work on finishing shot opportunities in the final third of the field, because getting finishes against a good team is really hard to do. They found that out against Green Mountain.

  • Spring’s warmer weather brings...

    Spring is certainly a confusing season in this area. March and April are supposedly spring months, but here in the foothills, it is a time of indecision.

    WINDSOR
    — Brett Crews scored with 3 seconds remaining as Evergreen avoided a fourth-period collapse and escaped with a 9-8 victory over host Windsor on March 8.

    Evergreen is scheduled to play its home opener March 12 against Legend before travling to Cheyenne Mountain for a game on March 14.

  • Lady Cougars upend Air Academy...

    By Craig Harper
    For the Courier
    You might call Evergreen’s season-opening 1-0 girls soccer triumph over Air Academy on March 6 poetic justice. But Kylee Petrik’s game-winning goal with 1 minute, 44 seconds remaining possessed all the artistry of a pulp-fiction writer.
