  • Rebuilding Cougars have room to...

    LAKEWOOD —Barely bigger than an elementary school student, Evergreen freshman gymnast Callie Cohen stood tall on the beam and flew through the air on the uneven bars when the Lady Cougars faced Standley Lake on Oct. 3 in their dual meet at Bear Creek High School.
    With her 15th birthday just days after the meet, Cohen knew that she had a lot to prove — both for herself and for her team.

    Evergreen junior Kyle Peterson tied with four others for 16th with a 10-over-par 154 at the two-day 4A boys golf state championship at The Links at Cobble Creek in Montrose on Oct. 1-2.
    “Kyle P. was just a bit off at state. His putter or the greens or the combination of both is where he slipped a little,” Evergreen head coach Mike Kuzava said. “But he’s got one year left, and I know he’ll do what it takes to get back into the top-10 next time around. He is the heart of our team.”

  • Four Cougars weather regionals

    DENVER — Pockets of snow covered the tennis grounds at Colorado Academy and temperatures hovered in the high 30s, but Evergreen’s boys tennis team was certainly fired up.
    No, Evergreen didn’t overtake perennial favorite Colorado Academy, which ran the table to seven championships and 84 team points at the 4A Region 1 tournament Oct. 4-5. But the Cougars finished second with 52 points and will send three teams to this week’s state meet at Pueblo City Park.

  • Peterson leads Evergreen to 7th-...

    MONTROSE – Evergreen junior Kyle Peterson tied with four others for 16th with a 10-over-par 154 at the two-day 4A boys golf state championship at The Links at Cobble Creek.
    Senior Sam Theil tied for 23rd with a 13-over 157, while Kyle Malazdrewicz tied for 50th with a 22-over 166. Theil was only 3-over after Day 1, but struggled with five bogeys and three triple bogeys in the second round. He did, however, eagle the Par-5, 556-yard No. 9 on Oct. 2.

  • Evergreen dances to own beat,...

    Inertia, the property that tends to keep a body in motion, emanated throughout Evergreen High School’s gym Sept. 27 as the Lady Cougars defeated rival Conifer 27-25, 20-25, 25-23, 25-21.
    With the sound system blasting feet-twitching tunes that made officials and coaches bust some dance moves in front of a packed house, the girls on the court fed off the energy creating a dynamic game of attack and defend.

  • Skold hopes to be peaking at the...

    LITTLETON — It was starting to become a regular occurrence. Three times this season, Sammy Skold placed third – at the season-opening Cheyenne Mountain Stampede, the Joe Vigil Open and the Liberty Bell. Her last win seemed like a distant memory.
    But she doesn’t have to worry about that any longer. Skold, who last won at the 2011 Liberty Bell, captured the annual Dave Sanders Invitational at Clement Park on Sept. 28 in a time of 19 minutes, 52 seconds.

  • Evergreen golfers on the prowl

    Sam Theil could’ve reflected back on his 3-over-par 75 at the 4A Metro Regionals and saw how it motivated him into the state tournament for a third consecutive year. He could also look back at his previous two trips and offer invaluable advice to his younger teammates, Kyle Peterson and Kyle Malazdrewicz.
    He could have, but Theil knew what the 4A boys golf state tournament truly takes.

    Over the years, my late husband, Bill, and I drove the highway to the summit of Mount Evans many, many times. It was one of our favorite places. We loved the high mountains, and Mount Evans was one of the good guys because he wore a white hat (of snow).
