  • Hamilton, Elmgreen ready for...

    Two seniors made their college choices official last week during signing ceremonies at Evergreen High School.
    Sam Hamilton signed with the University of Denver to play soccer and Colin Elmgreen will take his talents to Nebraska Wesleyan University to play basketball.

  • Petrik, Lady Cougars beat the...

    LAKEWOOD — Whether Kylee Petrik has a clock in her head or not can be debated. Literally, we know that she doesn’t, but figuratively, it certainly seems possible.

  • Winter’s return plays havoc with...

    The grass is green, flowers are blooming and the birds are chirping. Those are typically signs of spring. But not here. Not this year.
    Old Man Winter’s unwelcome return in recent weeks has played havoc with the high school sports schedule. Events have either been outright canceled or postponed multiple times. It’s causing a logistical nightmare for athletic directors to reschedule events for later in the season.

  • From the sounds of it, squirrels...

    During the past week, two different people requested information about the “baby” squirrels they have been seeing in their yard. From their description, I believe they have been seeing western red squirrels.

    Engelhart’s pitching, hot bats help Evergreen slam Alameda

    Josh Bellatti went 2-for-3 with three RBIs and Daniel Gibbins went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs driven in as Evergreen rolled to an 11-1 victory over Alameda on April 13.
    The game was called in the fifth inning due to the 10-run mercy rule.
    Evergreen belted out 10 hits, including two from Jake Englehart. Ryan Hays scored three runs.

  • Evergreen continues work on...

    LAKEWOOD — A look at the results might suggest a different story, but Evergreen track and field coach Scott Haebe knows better.
    The Cougars weren’t likely to be high on the leaderboard at the two-day Pomona Invitational, but Haebe knows that, considering the competition, his team was getting to where it needs to be.

  • Underdog Lobos don’t wilt under...

    CONIFER — Conifer boys lacrosse head coach Tyler Knauer has been waiting a long time to taking a win from Evergreen. He doesn’t have to wait any longer.
    A Conifer team that had lost seven straight and never beaten Evergreen came out with nothing to lose April 12 at Lobo Field. Behind the scoring of Connor Rankin and Blake Bannon, who combined for seven goals, Conifer posted a 12-7 win over rival Evergreen. It was as sweet a victory as a team could have, considering the Lobos are just 2-8 this season.

    Tenney cards course-low 77, wins at West Woods
    ARVADA
    — Evergreen junior Madison Tenney carded a 77 for medalist honors at the 4A Jeffco League golf tournament April 8 at West Woods Golf Course. Tenney overcame a quadruple bogey on her 11th hole to finish nine shots ahead of Karli Denk of Golden and Nicole Rooney of Green Mountain. Tenney shot even par on her front nine.
    Evergreen, as a team, placed third for a third consecutive tournament, finishing behind Golden and D’Evelyn.

  • Goal better late than never for...

    LAKEWOOD — Zoe Peterson knew how important the goal would be.
    After all, the Evergreen Lady Cougars were just 2-3, but a win over D’Evelyn on April 5 at Lakewood Memorial Field would do more than bring her team back to .500. It hopefully would go a long way in determining the pecking order in the 4A Jeffco League.

    CONIFER — Katherine Hardy didn’t want to play a third set. Up in sets 1-0, but facing double set point in a tiebreak of the second set, it looked like she might have to.
    Hardy, though, survived the two set points and came back to win the tiebreak 9-7, securing her match 6-2, 7-6 over Conifer’s Kirstin Hafeman in the No. 1 singles battle. The win helped propel the Lady Cougars to the team victory over host Conifer by a score of 6-1 on April 4.
