  • Roundup: Lane propels Cougars to...

    Andre Lane scored 18 points and Evergreen pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 53-44 win over Wheat Ridge on Feb. 4.

    Konnor Propst added 11 points and Braden Olson scored 10 for Evergreen (9-10, 5-5 4A Jeffco).

    Aaron Rubbleke and Ryan Wyser led Wheat Ridge (3-15, 1-8) with 10 points each. Evergreen capped its regular season with a 62-27 win on Feb. 7 at Arvada.

  • Grosbeaks, syrup lovers...

    One of the few deciduous trees native to this area is the box elder, Acer negundo, also known as the ash-leaved maple. It is an interesting tree that has made its way all across the Great Plains with a little help from mankind.

    People brought this tree to their early homesteads and planted it in yards as windbreaks around their homes. It is still found in many yards and along many plains water courses.

  • Evergreen dominates Husky...

    BAILEY — Lindsay Johnson says that Platte Canyon High School’s pool is not one of her favorites. Be it the blocks, which can be slick, or the environment, in particular the colder temperatures outside of the pool, it’s a tough place to swim.

    But it sure didn’t seem that way on Jan. 29.

    Johnson was part of four of Evergreen’s eight victories as the Lady Cougars easily won the Husky Invitational with 268 points. Kent Denver came in second in the seven-team field with 216 points. Manitou Springs was third with 213.

  • Stratman, D’Evelyn scurry past...

    Evergreen had to know that Luke Stratman was going to score. He’s only scored 20 points or more nine times and scored at least double figures in all but one of D’Evelyn’s previous games. 

  • Jaguars tandem handles Cougars

    Madalyn Neely and Laura Tyree almost beat Evergreen by themselves. Actually, they did.

    The D’Evelyn duo, the team’s top scorers, combined for 41 points and the Lady Jaguars used a 19-2 opening quarter to lead throughout in a 67-37 win over host Evergreen on Jan. 28 at Evergreen High School.

  • Offense slows Cougars

    GOLDEN — Evergreen head coach Ali Meyers wasn’t pleased with her team’s offensive effort against Golden.

    “We just didn’t step up and play well on offense. We couldn’t dribble, we couldn’t shoot, we couldn’t pass. If you can’t do those things you’re not going to win too many games,” Meyers said.

  • Wood taking act to the extreme

    Walter Wood has been skiing since he was 4. That’s not too hard to comprehend when you consider that his parents were ski patrollers, But who knew then what turned into a passion would become a career.

    Well, maybe Wood did. His job is his love and he can go to work everyday with a pair of skis on.

  • Grise stays on course, takes 2nd...

    NEDERLAND — Sam Grise, admittedly, was skiing a little more conservative than he normally would on his second run down at Eldora Mountain Resort on Jan. 21. Partially, it may have had something to do with the icier conditions the Evergreen skier faced on a blistery afternoon. But mostly it had more to do with his own issues with finishing the giant slalom.

    He didn’t have any problems, despite the conditions, in doing that this time.
