    It wasn’t that the first quarter was bad. Everyone just seemed to think it could have been better. Well, it got better quickly for the Evergreen boys basketball team on Jan. 11 in a 59-47 home win over Green Mountain.
    Leading 11-9 after the opening period, Evergreen used a swarming defense to go on a 12-0 run at the start of the second quarter and eventually take a 27-13 lead into the break.

  • Cougars conquer Jeffco Relays

    LAKEWOOD — Fifteen teams from all over Jeffco converged at Carmody Pool, a tiny pool not typically used for high school meets except for the occasional dual meet. But due to structural issues at Arvada’s Meyers Pool, all Jeffco invites, as well as the league championships, will be held at Carmody.
    But as soon as the relays started Jan. 14, the Evergreen Lady Cougars eased into the water and let the waves tell the rest of the story.

    If the competition that Jake Kay has lost to during the 2012-13 season is any indication than the Evergreen senior wrestler is right there knocking on the door of being one of 4A’s best grapplers come state tournament time. And he knows it.
    “I’m close. I’m real close. My time will come. I’m getting close,” Kay said.

    DENVER — Evergreen girls basketball coach Amy Mohr kept her emotions in check after the Lady Cougars’ 39-33 loss at George Washington on Jan. 4. The first-year coach laid the blame on her team’s defeat with its play and precarious shooting. But it would’ve been so easy to have looked at the questionable officiating and foul-shooting discrepancy, especially in the fourth quarter, that turned a close game into one Evergreen was fighting an uphill battle to win.

    Emotion on the court can be a double-edged sword — the catalyst to defeat a tough opponent or the key to a team’s undoing. For the Littleton Lions’ boys basketball team on Jan. 4, it was the key to their undoing.
    The Lions let their emotions get the better of them in the fourth quarter, giving up their third-period lead in allowing the Evergreen Cougars to score a 68-57 win.

    Kya Perez had no previous athletic background other than an interrupted season at the Pee Wee level, yet the Evergreen freshman was looking toward doing sports in high school. But not any sport, and especially not, in her words, a “girly sport.”
