  • READY FOR THE RIDE

    Bryan Walz has been looking for an opportunity to work with kids for a while. And even though he’s organized rock climbing outings in the past his true passion is mountain bike racing.

    Last year, the Colorado Cycling League was formed, giving Walz the perfect opportunity to get involved and he jumped at the chance.

    Evergreen to play three games at Montrose tournament
    Evergreen High School will play three games June 3-5 at the Montrose tournament. Games will be played at Delta and Montrose high schools.

  • Anything can happen during...

    When I think of terns, I usually think of ocean shores, but there is one beautiful little tern that is found across the United States and Canada on small fresh water inland ponds, especially on prairie sloughs: the black tern.

  • EHS 4x800 relay runs off with 2nd

    LAKEWOOD — Maura O’Brien reminded Erin Dobey that it was a team race. So did Bryn Haebe and Sammy Skold. So while Dobey, an Evergreen junior, had the unenviable task of running the anchor leg of the Lady Cougars’ 4x800 meter relay team, her teammates were quick to acknowledge that it was a team effort.

    And it was.

  • Cougars’ Hamilton gives all he...

    LAKEWOOD —  Running 1,600 meters — a mile — is hard enough as it is. Running it while recovering from pneumonia is downright impossible. Jak Hamilton knows.

    Yet, despite suffering for the past two weeks and having only 83 oxygen capacity in his lungs there was the Evergreen senior giving, literally, every last ounce of energy he had at the 4A state track and field championships on May 21 at Jefferson County Stadium.

  • Late and large straggler:...

    Spring has been up to her fickle tricks again with a wet soggy snow last Wednesday, May 11, followed by an overcast day on Thursday, May 12. By late afternoon, she had apparently had enough of her sulking and cleared off to a partly blue sky and some very welcome sunshine.
    My friend Loie Evans had taken me into town for a doctor’s appointment, and as we were headed home up Bear Creek Canyon, she was telling me all the interesting migrants she had seen on Wednesday at Evergreen Lake in the snow. As she ended an amazing list, she added, “But no pelicans.”

  • Skold, Evergreen win league...

    LAKEWOOD — Samantha Skold probably wouldn’t have ran the pace that she did if not for teammate Maura O’Brien being right there with her. As it turns out, O’Brien’s presence helped fuel Skold to a 4A Jeffco League championship in the 1,600 meters on May 14.

  • Cougars falter in playoff opener

    This was not the way Evergreen wanted the season to end, losing five straight. But at the least the Cougars went down swinging.

    The No. 22 seed in the 32-team 4A district baseball tournament, Evergreen (13-7) saw its season come to a close with a 3-2 loss to 11th-seeded Air Academy on May 14 in Durango.

  • No. 2 duo didn’t go quietly

    Christian Feagans and Genieve Degrandchamp didn’t win, but, boy, did Evergreen’s No. 2 doubles team make their presence felt at the 4A state girls tennis championships last week.

    The regional runner-ups faced Broomfield’s Bailey Schnoor and Shivaun Wood in the opening round of the three-day tournament and, for a brief moment, appeared ready to end the Lady Eagles’ shot at placing in the 16-team field before the event got rolling.

     But Schnoor and Wood persevered to score a 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 win on May 12 at Pueblo City Park.

  • Spring birds make their...

    Spring has finally arrived with days hovering around 70 degrees and nights only just freezing. Here in the foothills, I don’t trust the night temperatures until after June 1, and even then we have a frost occasionally. Most of our summer birds arrive during the first week of May, and many of them came in as usual last week.
