    Evergreen suffers rare shutout on road at L-P
    MONUMENT — Four years. That’s how long it’s been since the Evergreen Cougars’ football team had been shutout. That all changed Sept. 9 at Lewis-Palmer High School as the Rangers blanked EHS 42-0.

  • Tenney, Cougars win at Indian...

    LAFAYETTE — Mike Kuzava, Evergreen’s boys’ golf coach, could use his fair share of superlatives to describe Bridger Tenney: He’s gifted, be it in academics or athletics. He’s top-notch. 

    On Sept. 7, Tenney was also something else: the best player in the field at Indian Peaks Golf Course.

  • Cougars finish second to one

    LITTLETON — On the one hand, Brandon Swenson and Weston Donati-Leach could look at their performances at the 39th annual Liberty Bell and be quite content with it. But then there’s the other hand.

  • Jeffco Open Space eyes land...

    The Jeffco Open Space staff is working on a land acquisition many involved think could be unprecedented for the county.

    Last month, Open Space Director Tom Hoby met with the county commissioners to present his agency’s second-quarter update. The meeting included highlights of eight projects Hoby wants the commission to approve, the most interesting of which is a potential land deal across the county line in Clear Creek.

    Evergreen, Valor Christian tie for first at Indian Tree
    ARVADA — The Evergreen  Cougars maintained their 34-stroke lead in the 4A Jeffco League after the Sept. 2 tournament at Indian Tree where both teams shot a 299 score.

  • EHS gymnastics hopes opening...

    LITTLETON ­— The Chatfield Lady Chargers, despite having first-meet jitters and several falls in their season opener Sept. 1 at home against Green Mountain and Evergreen, yielded some impressive performances.

    Chatfield, with its largest team ever – 35 girls, took first place in tri-meet with 167.3 points. Green Mountain took second with 153.6 points, while Evergreen was third at 125.625.

  • Cates, Lobos knock off Cougars

    Jaden Cates is such an intense player that sometimes Conifer softball coach Carrie Oletski has to remind her sophomore pitcher — one of eight sophomores on this year’s team — to smile from time to time, loosen up but also remember to throw strikes.

    The strikes were hit and miss Aug. 30 at Evergreen High School as Cates scattered eight walks, but she showed enough poise to fan six and allow just five hits as the Lady Lobos, behind an early seven-run cushion, pounded out a 10-4 victory.

    The defending Class 4A boys’ soccer state champions began the 2016 season right where they left off.

    Evergreen, ranked No. 1 in the CHSAANow.com preseason poll, opened the season Sept. 1 with a dominating 6-0 victory over Palmer at Evergreen High School. Five Cougars found the back of the net in the first 45 minutes.

  • Late field goal saves Evergreen...

    The outcome aside, Rob Molholm’s cardiologist wouldn’t recommend many more games like the 2016 opener for Evergreen’s head football coach.

    On the sideline for the first time since he suffered a heart attack last December, Molholm no doubt suffered palpitations while guiding his mostly inexperienced Cougars to a 23-21 victory over Northridge on Sept. 2 at Evergreen High School.

  • Wet summer has brought new weeds...

    (Reprinted from Sept. 2, 2009)

    On Friday evening, Aug.14, the Weed Awareness Committee met for its last summer weed pulling at Evergreen Lake.

    This rainy summer has produced an unusual number of weeds, as well as unusually big weeds. Two of the participants had brought a sample of a new weed that had appeared in their yard.
