  • Cougars finding their way after...

    WHEAT RIDGE — First-year Evergreen High boys swimming coach Marc Rios has taken a hands-off approach early on in the 2015 season. He’s gone as far as to let the Cougars choose which events they want to swim in. That was the case in Evergreen’s tri-meet at Wheat Ridge Rec Center on March 13 along with the host Farmers and Ralston Valley, in which the Cougars placed second with 97 points.

  • Lady Cougars find net late, stay...

    It wasn’t for a lack of effort, but it took a while — quite a while — for the Evergreen Lady Cougars to find a rhythm in their home opener March 14 against Pueblo Centennial. However, once they did, there was little the visiting Lady Bulldogs could do to stop them at Evergreen High School.

    Second-half goals from Sofia Weiner and Jahna Pusedu in the final 17 minutes erased a scoreless tie as Evergreen improved to 3-0 on the young season with a 2-0 victory.

  • Owls help keep rodent population...

    The great horned owl is probably the most common owl in the Evergreen area. A few of the smaller owls may be nearly as common during their brief breeding period, but the great horned owl is a permanent resident in local areas where adequate food and nesting sites are available.

  • EHS counting on experience,...

    Steve Jones has to feel as if he has stepped into a golden situation when he came on board as Evergreen’s baseball coach last fall. The former EHS assistant coach, who has been proceeded in recent years by long-time coach Terry Hensley, Matt Erholtz, Tim Wulf and Dale Hutchings, hopes to bring a sense of stability to a program that is loaded with upperclassmen in 2015.

    “I am a beneficiary of that,” Jones said of his veteran roster. “Still the guys have to go out and play hard and play smart.”

    That’s the intent.
