  • EHS qualifies handful for state...

    LAKEWOOD — Sometimes there is a thin line between superstition and just being prepared.
    At Evergreen’s girls swim meet against Green Mountain on Dec. 9, Jeannie Godaire, head swim coach for the Lady Cougars, was keeping her fingers crossed for as many state qualifiers as she could get during Evergreen’s 108-78 win.
    “There are a lot of things that can happen between now and state,” cautioned Godaire, “which is why we try to get these girls qualified as early in the season as we possibly can.”

  • Turnovers, foul trouble doom...

    LAKEWOOD — Andre Lane scored 28 points, including seven 3-pointers, but turnovers and foul trouble plagued Evergreen in a 70-55 loss to Mountain Vista on Dec. 8 in the opening round of the Paul Davis Classic at Green Mountain High School.
    Evergreen only trailed by two points heading into the second half before the Golden Eagles (4-3) took control by outscoring the Cougars (2-2) 45-32 over the final two periods.

  • Cougars’ rally comes up short

    CONIFER — It’s no secret that Hailey Newhall has been the offensive catalyst for the Evergreen Lady Cougars so far this girls basketball season. As she goes so does Evergreen.
    Falcon found that out in the first half of its crossover game of the second annual Conifer-Evergreen Mountain Classic on Dec. 10 at Conifer High School. But once the Lady Falcons figured that how to eliminate Newhall from Evergreen’s offensive equation they were able to put their own offensive spark together and hold off a fourth-quarter charge for a 56-53 win.

  • Elegant waxwings grace winter...

    Many people complain to me that they find winter birding dull because there are no pretty birds around.
    True, the winter residents at most feeders, pine siskins, chickadees, nuthatches, hairy and down woodpeckers, house sparrows, house finches, and the various forms of the dark-eyed junco are mostly gray, brown, and black-and-white birds. Not very exciting or colorful, but they are still interesting.

  • Early part of season all about...

    GOLDEN — The girls swimming season has officially kicked off with 16 teams from Jefferson County meeting for the D’Evelyn Sprint Pentathlon on Dec. 3 at Colorado School of Mines.
     “The girls are already exhausted. I don’t think they realized how much swimming happens this early in the season,” Evergreen assistant coach Angie Harrington said.

  • Cougars’ pressure too much for...

    Hailey Newhall had a double-double to lead the Evergreen Lady Cougars to a 65-32 rout of Montbello in both teams’ season opener on Dec. 3 at Evergreen High School.
    The Lady Cougars avenged last year’s 50-49 loss at Montbello by applying full-court pressure in the first half that resulted in a 40-16 halftime lead. Evergreen was set to open the season two nights earlier vs. George Washington, but that game was rescheduled for Dec. 6 due to weather. Results weren’t available at presstime.

  • Evergreen's Kay, Karnath...

    CONIFER — To say that Don Fuller was a little wet behind the ears when it came to wrestling last season would probably be accurate. And to say that he’s grown from that experience by leaps and bounds is definitely accurate.

  • Cougar riding in the fast Lane

    For Andre Lane, playing basketball is something that he loves to do. It’s his passion.
    Sure the Evergreen junior is a three-sport star, playing tennis in the fall and running track in the spring, but basketball is his true calling. And he knows it.
    “This is definitely my favorite sport by far,” the modest 6-foot small forward said.
    That’s obvious by Lane’s play on the floor. As a sophomore last season, Lane displayed that passion with his play, and he certainly has his supporters.
