  • Goldfinches check out feeders as...

    Friday, Sept. 5, had been a wet, cloudy day that finally turned into rain about 5:30 p.m. It feels much too cold for September, but so be it. Our summer is over because by the time you read this, it will be Wednesday, Sept. 10. I just hope we will still have some nice fall weather in September and October.

    Many people have asked what they can bring me, to which I have had to respond that there’s nothing that I really need. I am grateful for their kindness and desire to be good friends by their offers to bring me some tokens of their friendship.

    FOOTBALL
    Reifeis, Cougars improve to 2-0, top Northridge
    GREELEY — Evergreen junior quarterback Dylan Reifeis completed 22 of 26 passes for 273 yards and two touchdowns as the Cougars, ranked fifth in this week’s CHSAA poll, toppled host Northridge 39-22 on Sept. 6 at District 6 Stadium.

    Marcus Cassin caught nine passes for 112 yards and one touchdown. Connor Solawetz also caught a TD pass.

  • Murphy, Wall spark Evergreen...

    PARKER — The Evergreen Lady Cougars volleyball team played a shoelace game against the Lutheran Lady Lions, winning 25-13, 25-15, 24-26, 25-21 at Lutheran High School on Sept. 4.

    For the first two games, every ball the Lady Cougars lobbed over the net seemed to sink right at the Lions’ feet, forcing Lutheran to dig time and again. But then the Lady Cougars lost their momentum in the third game.

  • Cougars find the right touch in...

    First-year Evergreen boys soccer coach Ross Fowler, like his predecessor Peter Jeans, preaches that his team should have greater possession of the ball than the opposition. He finds that the teams who are able to do that consistently score a lot more goals later in the game.

    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.
