    HIGHLANDS RANCH — Rocket shots from Evergreen’s Elise Adreon and Sofia Weiner in the first half May 20 were enough to send the Cougars to their first girls soccer state championship game in 20 years.
    No. 7 Evergreen took a 2-1 victory over No. 6 Windsor at Shea Stadium in the second 4A girls soccer state semifinal. The Cougars (12-6 record) now face rival D’Evelyn in the championship game at 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 24, at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen’s Weston Donati-Leach and Brandon Swenson stood side-by-side on the awards podium following the 800-meter race Sunday at Jeffco Stadium.

    LAKEWOOD — With the bar set at 11 feet, 3 inches, it took just one try for Evergreen junior Tameryn Coryell to clear it. The jump had two significant meanings for Coryell. First, clearing 11 feet is an accomplishment in itself, but the second meaning was a little bigger. It marked the first 4A state pole vault title in school history.
