  • Feathered friends make a spring...

    Oh, how good the sweet fresh air feels. I am sitting in the yard at the Life Care Center, and I can’t begin to describe what a pleasure it is to get outside.
    Yesterday was Friday, March 18, and a small band of mule deer wandered through the yard. The band included one male, two females and one young.
    He was no longer spotted but was very small. I wondered if it would make it through the winter.

  • Lady Cougars thrash Raiders

    AURORA — Written on a dry-erase board beside the Evergreen bench were head coach Rich O’Connor’s do’s and don’t for the Lady Cougars. On one list there was run toward passes, double team the ball carrier and communicate. On the other, there were don’t get a three-second violation, turn the ball over and go offsides among other things.

  • Evergreen scores early, often in...

    LAKEWOOD — Haley Stading would tell you that it’s difficult to get motivated for an inferior opponent, such as Alameda. Sure, the Lady Pirates’ record entering their March 21 game at Lakewood Memorial Field would’ve said otherwise — Alameda was 2-1 prior to the contest — but Evergreen knew what it was truly up against.

    And the Lady Cougars, in particular Stading, wasted little time in putting the game out of reach.

  • Roundup: Cougars’ offense...

    PARKER — Reilly Fletcher scored five goals and 10 players scored in all as Evergreen rolled to a 20-1 boys lacrosse win over host Legend on March 19.

    Evan Dyba added four goals, Brenden Cecil and Christian Butler scored two each while Mike Rodgers, Evan Dreggors, Braden Olson, Jamison Schaffnit, Derek Hallman and Scott Crews also scored for the Cougars (3-1).

    Evergreen has won three straight.

  • Red foxes are plentiful in the...

    A few weeks ago while visiting the Evergreen Library, I noticed a female red fox curled up asleep in one of the landscape areas. Everyone was asking, “Why is she asleep in broad daylight” and “What is she doing there?”

  • Evergreen can’t keep up in 2nd...

    LAKEWOOD — Casey Kopchik just might be the first one to tell you that winning the season opener, which Chatfield did with a 7-4 victory over Evergreen on March 11 at Trailblazer Stadium, is huge, but you’ve got to keep pushing.

    The Chargers, ironically, made their first push in the second half. Chatfield, a state quarterfinalist a year ago, scored the game’s final four goals — two from Kopchik — to erase a brief second-half deficit.    

  • Cougars’ offense comes out firing

    LAFAYETTE — You can’t win them all if you don’t win the first one.

    The Evergreen Cougars’ girls soccer team can still have that hope as they opened their season in style, beating Centaurus, 5-2, on March 10 at Warriors Stadium.

    “It’s always good to start with a win,” senior Haley Stading said.

    Stading was a big part of it, putting in her first two goals of the season. But it was teammate Hailey Davey that got the team going, netting a hat trick.
