  • Slow start doesn’t derail...

    CONIFER — The intent of the Evergreen boys soccer team was evident: score as many goals as early as possible. After all, in the Cougars’ first four victories this season, one was in double overtime, another after scoring two late second-half tallies and two more by a goal each.

  • Cougars use pass, defense vs....

    Green Mountain never really stopped Evergreen’s bread-and-butter running game, said head coach Rob Molholm, but it was his team’s miscues that led the Cougars to a more passing attack early in its homecoming game Sept. 19 at Evergreen High School. Whatever the case, it worked.

    Dylan Reifeis was 11-of-21 passing for 169 yards and two touchdowns, and the Cougars defense, as dominant as it has been all year, shut down 4A Green Mountain for a 23-3 victory.

  • EHS pulls through, qualifies for...

    LITTLETON — Mike Kuzava wasn’t going to name names, but years ago an opposing Jeffco boys golf coach commented to him that Evergreen kids tend to fold under pressure. That has always stuck in his craw. This year’s, Evergreen’s boys golf team would refute that statement.

  • Dark blue Steller’s jay easily...

    Friday, Sept. 12, was a truly cold fall day. I awoke to falling snow, but it never was cold enough for it to accumulate to cover the ground because the temperature hovered just above the freezing point all day. It was dark and gloomy all day and just cold enough to require my heavy sweater.

    Lady Cougars win 7th straight, take Mile High Invitational
    DENVER — Lauren Hawes went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs and Emily Lauder, making her first start in right field, threw a Thomas Jefferson runner out at the plate as Evergreen won the Mile High Invitational on Sept. 13 with a 6-5 victory.

    The Lady Cougars broke a 5-all tie in the top of the seventh.

    Freshman Ashley Johnson picked up the victory, striking out five and walking three. Jessica Bellatti scored two runs.

    Evergreen’s best gymnast and lone junior is trying to regain her form after an offseason layoff from the sport and an illness that has forced her to miss meets this year. Its promising freshman is battling a sore ankle while adjusting to the high school version of the sport. Its lone senior also has battled illness. The remainder of the squad is sophomores and freshmen. Its assistant coach is new.

    No wonder second-year coach Chancey Hines is asking for patience.

  • Frosh middle Hicken sparks...

    LITTLETON — Taylor Hicken may only be a freshman but already she’s proving to be a spark plug for the Dakota Ridge Lady Eagles’ volleyball team.

    LITTLETON — Evergreen’s cross country team isn’t likely to see too many individual victories, but that’s not the motive anyway. The Cougars are all about what they can do as a team.

    That’s been proven over the years, especially in 2013 when the boys and girls each won 4A Jeffco League and regional titles. Well, 2014, is looking like much the same with a state championship very much in sight.

  • 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.
