    EVERGREEN — Connor Peterson feels like he’s gotten better as a wrestler, but he also knew after his match Dec. 12 against Clear Creek’s George Gothman that the Golddiggers sophomore is an improving grappler as well.

  • Condit continues early success

    CONIFER — In high school years, Zander Condit is a babe in the woods roaming the halls at Conifer. But on the wrestling mat, the freshman struts like a seasoned veteran.

  • Lady Cougars zone in on defense...

    Evergreen graduated five key seniors from last season’s 4A girls basketball runner-up team and returned just one of note for 2016-17, so a drop-off of sorts would be understandable.

    Voters in the CHSAANow.com preseason poll apparently weren’t convinced, slotting the Lady Cougars at No. 4.

  • Huge surge propels EHS to victory

    Keigan Drysdale expected more of a press from Silver Creek. Her Evergreen Lady Cougars, ranked No. 4 in the CHSAANow.com 4A preseason poll, definitely prepared for such, she said. 

    They also prepared for more of a zone defense than what they saw. It didn’t come. At least not to the point of slowing down the Lady Cougars.

  • Schedule testing Conifer early on

    DENVER — Eric Valerio’s last two Conifer boys basketball teams posted 8-0 records in non-conference play against mostly inferior competition, only to finish well below .500 in the 4A Jeffco League and be left out of the state tournament.

    Lesson learned the hard way.

    Natalie Kenchel is used to the comparisons. It doesn’t matter who it is or where she’s at, the Evergreen sophomore can usually count on being compared with older sister Katelyn, a key component to the Lady Cougars’ state success in recent years.

  • Cougars taketh away in rout

    Mike Dillon couldn’t have asked for a better way to start the season. The 6-foot-6 Evergreen senior, as good with his hands and outside shooting as he is at being an imposing inside presence for the Cougars, collected a steal — the first of many for EHS on the night — dribbled down court and delivered a season-opening slam.

  • Snowberries make an appearance...

    (Reprinted from Dec. 5, 2012)

    This has been an exceptionally warm, dry fall. We often have nice weather on Thanksgiving, but to have 60-degree days in December is unusual. Moist air coming in from the Pacific Ocean has soaked the West Coast with rain.

    It may reach here by the time this is published, and as it hits the higher mountains, it may well turn to snow. However, that still remains uncertain.

    “They definitely saw that anything is possible. Taking what we do as a program and just executing it well produced success. The team coming in this year sees that.”
    — Evergreen head coach Amy Bahl, on the Lady Cougars’ run to the 4A state championship game last season and this year’s crop of players seeing that success.
