  • Conifer boots Evergreen

    Concerns, what concerns. The sharp-dressed, cool-as-can-be Matthew Guglielmo said he didn’t have any, not with his Conifer Lady Lobos clinging to a one-goal lead over an intense final 14 minutes May 5 at Evergreen High School.

    Not even after Hailey Davey pulled host Evergreen to within a goal with 14 minutes, 12 seconds left or when the Lady Cougars pelted the Conifer goal with a pair of corner kick opportunities in the closing 40 seconds did he worry. But it would take the final buzzer before Conifer could exhale after a crucial 3-2 win.

  • Cougars’ dedicated season ends...

    LOUISVILLE — Toby Plank was looking down on the Evergreen Cougars’ boys lacrosse team on May 6 no doubt about it.

    While Plank, the former Evergreen head coach who passed away last December at the age of 36 due to complications from carcenoid cancer, wasn’t with the team literally his presence has been felt all season long.

  • EHS’ No. 2 doubles team going to...

    DENVER — Christian Feagans and Genevieve DeGrandchamp didn’t have a choice. The Evergreen duo knew that if it wanted to go to this week’s 4A state girls tennis tournament in Pueblo it would have to beat either the No. 2 doubles team from Colorado Academy or Regis Jesuit to get there. Maybe both.

  • Cougars leave chances on base

    LAKEWOOD — It’s probably not the way the Evergreen Cougars, especially head coach Terry Hensley, would’ve liked to have been heading into the postseason. But, rest assured, Evergreen hasn’t exactly been playing slouch competition of late.

  • Teal, gulls plentiful at...

    There have been many species of birds on Evergreen Lake during April. Despite the cool weather, the ice has remained out and with open water, many birds stop just long enough to rest and feed as they continue to move northward for the summer.

    One day last week, we had a thunderstorm in the early afternoon that started with a loud clap of thunder followed by a heavy rain, then sleet, then wet snow, followed by hail and more thunder and lightning. As weird as that seems, I can only say that is more or less typical of spring weather in the mountains.

  • Fate, luck not on Evergreen’s...

    LAKEWOOD — Hailey Davey, make no bones about it, thought that Evergreen was the better team. 

    And though the flow of the game, the teams’ records and Green Mountain’s No. 2 ranking in 4A would say otherwise, the Lady Cougars more than held their own on April 28 at Lakewood Memorial Field. But one unfortunate play off one way too many corner kicks allowed the Jeffco League’s top team to escape with a 3-2 double overtime victory.

  • Kelly, Rebels storm Cougars

    LAKEWOOD — The Columbine boys lacrosse team picked up some positive energy going into the playoffs with an easy 11-4 victory over Evergreen on April 29 at Trailblazer Stadium.

    Columbine sophomore attacker Ryan Kelly scored four goals, including three in the first quarter.

     “The win brings us into the playoffs with some tempo,” Kelly said. “It’s a great win and it will give us a lot of the momentum we need to go far in the playoffs.”

  • Roundup: Bote, Faith Christian...

    David Bote went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a homer and Faith Christian broke open a tie game late with three runs in the sixth and three more in the seventh for a 9-5 win over Evergreen on April 30.

    The loss snapped a seven-game winning streak for the Cougars (13-3). Faith Christian improved to 15-2. James Maroney homered for Evergreen.

  • New product helps control...

    With the arrival of spring every year, I begin to receive phone calls from the readers of this column, asking for advice on how to keep woodpeckers from making holes in their houses. All members of the woodpecker family are designed with stiff tail feathers and strong feet to prop themselves against tree trunks, and sharp stout beaks to make holes in wood.
