  • Lane jumps onto podium for EHS

    LAKEWOOD — The last time Andre Lane competed in the triple jump was two years ago and he doesn’t remember much about that trip. For the record, he finished 16th in 2011.
    Fast forward to 2013 and the Evergreen senior was back representing the Cougars’ boys team in all four events they qualified for at the 4A state track and field championships, including the triple jump. But he wasn’t feeling all that confident about his chances of success after the preliminary round.

  • Spring’s arrival brings new...

    It is so nice to have some warm spring days, and now we are promised summer temperatures this week. Just to go out in my yard and see green fields and robins looking for worms, and hear green-tailed towhees and house wrens singing is a tonic for my winter-shriveled soul.

  • EHS runs out of rallies at...

    GREELEY — The Evergreen Cougars rallied once to reach the 4A District 2 baseball finals, but couldn’t rally a second time to reach the eight-team double-elimination state tournament on May 12.
    A day after inclement weather postponed their district opener against Coronado, the Cougars rallied for three runs in the final two innings to win 8-7.

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen High School won both the girls and boys 4A Jeffco League track and field championships on May 12 at Jefferson County Stadium.
    The girls won with a league-best 222 points, topping D’Evelyn for the 4A honors. The Lady Jaguars finished with 199 points. Lakewood was the top 5A school with 175.5.
    The EHS boys scored 193 points, just topping 5A Chatfield, which finished with 188.5. D’Evelyn was second among 4A schools with 159.

  • Lady Cougars lack poise in...

    MONUMENT — Blood, sweat and tears, Evergreen had a little bit of it all on May 10.
    First, the Lady Cougars had blood courtesy of the bitten tongue of freshman scoring machine Zoe Peterson in the first half. Then there’s the sweat. They are playing soccer after all. And, finally, the tears for a season that ended at Don Breese Stadium in the second round of the 4A state girls soccer playoffs.

  • Evergreen puts on a hitting...

    The Evergreen Cougars put on a hitting clinic May 4 against rival Conifer. And every time the Lobos answered, Evergreen answered right back.
    The home-standing Cougars scored four runs or more in four consecutive innings, capping the game with a Joe Danni game-ending RBI single in the fifth inning for a 17-7 win. And it’s wasn’t just one individual — it was a collective effort for the Cougars, as all nine guys contributed in some form or another.

  • EHS knocks on the door, but can’...

    DENVER — It was a recurring theme for the Evergreen Lady Cougars. In a Region 1 girls tennis tournament that featured the likes of host Colorado Academy, Valor Christian and Alexander Dawson, Evergreen was knocking on the door time and again to qualify someone for this week’s 4A state tournament in Pueblo. But it didn’t quite happen.

  • Bounce doesn’t go EHS’ way

    LAKEWOOD — No, Evergreen didn’t win the 4A Jeffco League girls soccer championship on May 3 at Lakewood Memorial Field. That honor was bestowed on preseason favorite Green Mountain, thanks to a Jenn Brunsdon rebounded goal in the 68th minute for a 1-0 victory.
    But while Evergreen was denied a league title, it may have gained something even more important — the confidence to play the state’s best with the 4A playoffs on the horizon.

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen’s Madison Tenney’s golf ball went swimming twice in the May 6 Class 4A Metro West Regional golf meet at Fox Hollow Golf Club. Had that not happened, she might have well finished fifth among the tournaments 76 contestants.
