  • First snowflakes herald the...

    When I was in fifth grade, we were required to learn a poem and present it before our class. The poem I chose to learn and recite was the one printed below.

    The First Snowfall
    The snow had begun in the gloaming,
    And busily all the night
    Had been heaping field and highway
    With a silence deep and white.
    Every pine and fir and hemlock
    Wore ermine too dear for an earl,
    And the poorest twig on the elm tree
    Was ridged inch deep with pearl.
    From sheds new-roofed with Carrara

  • Cougars pummel Ridgeview

    The Evergreen Cougars won their third straight game, celebrating homecoming with a 49-0 win over Ridgeview Academy on Oct. 28 at Evergreen High School.
    It also marked Evergreen’s sixth straight win at EHS over the past two seasons.
    The Cougars improved to 8-1 overall, 4-1 in the 3A Metro South heading into their Nov. 4 game against rival Conifer (6-3, 5-0). The winner of that game will lock up the conference championship, an automatic berth in this year’s 16-team 3A football playoffs and a home postseason game next week.

  • Evergreen comes up one win short...

    LONGMONT — It didn’t take Evergreen volleyball coach Katie Ryan long to pinpoint where her Lady Cougars’ volleyball team missed its chance to get into this weekend’s regional volleyball tournament.

  • Jackson’s goal, assist lift...

    Ethan Jackson scored one goal and assisted on another as the Evergreen Cougars advanced to the 4A state quarterfinals with a 4-1 win over 15th-seeded Durango on Oct. 29 at Evergreen High School.
    Sam Hamilton, Scott Boland and Brian Grieve also scored for the Cougars, who played 10th-seeded Battle Mountain (14-1-2), a 7-1 winner over Sand Creek, in the quarterfinals on Nov. 1. Results of that game weren’t available at press time, but can be found online at www.canyoncourier.com.
    Kevin Schulte and Jared Cochran added an assist against Durango.
     

  • Cougars kick off playoffs in...

    There may have been snow pushed off to the side of the field. There was certainly a chill in the air. But Evergreen’s boys soccer team was more than a little warmed up for its 4A state playoff opener on Oct. 27 against Vista Ridge.
    The Cougars, the No. 2 seed in this year’s 32-team tournament, already led by two goals when they exploded for six more scores in the game’s final 33 minutes for an 8-0 rout. Six players scored for Evergreen, including two goals each from Colton Cavey and Jared Cochran.

  • Cougars struggle to hang on

    AURORA — It was the second mile of the 3.1-mile 4A state cross country championship at Arapahoe County Fairgrounds and there was Jackson Sayler out front in the lead. No other runner was in front of the Evergreen junior.
    It was though, unfortunately, just the second mile.
    Sayler, who admitted mentally he gave up, faltered back to a 58th-place finish in 17 minutes, 52.32 seconds in the 187-runner field on Oct. 29.

  • Solitaires stay around and stake...

    The first Townsend’s solitaire that I ever saw was shortly after we moved to Colorado in April 1965. I was looking around our new yard and saw a strange gray bird just across the road, clinging to a giant mullein stalk in the open valley above Little Cub Creek. I watched it digging insects out of the dead mullein stalk and thought how often I had seen downy woodpeckers acting in the same manner.

  • Evergreen out in quarterfinals

    AURORA — Breeze Phillips walked off the field and let out a sigh of relief.
    The Evergreen ace pitcher had held Broomfield in check for six innings, allowing just two early runs. But the ninth-seeded Lady Eagles, with their backs up against the wall, scored three runs in the top of the seventh and had the tying run on second with one out.

  • O’Brien rolls on, captures...

    DENVER — Maura O’Brien, on the heels of winning the 4A Jeffco League championship, ran a time of 19 minutes, 40 seconds and won the 4A Region 1 championship on Oct. 21 at Denver’s City Park.
