  • Cougars tune up for Conifer with...

    WATKINS — Trent Tosetti rushed for two touchdowns, and Quinn O’Neill and Jake Hutcherson added a score each as the Evergreen Cougars won their fourth straight game, 32-0 over Ridge View Academy on Oct. 30.

    The Cougars (7-2, 4-1 3A Metro South) rushed for 355 yards. The loss dropped Ridge View Academy to 2-7 overall, 1-4 in league play.

  • Cougars ousted in district...

    DENVER — The basic formula of volleyball is bump, set, spike. But when you get to the district tournament, as the Evergreen High School girls’ volleyball team did, the formula gets a little more complicated.

    The Cougars (11-10) were eliminated from the 4A District 4 tournament on Oct. 30 by the Mullen Mustangs at Denver South High School. Mullen advanced to the Region B tournament at Thompson Valley High School on Nov. 6. 

  • PLAYOFF-CLINCHING CATCH

    CONIFER — Not the crowd noise, the Fox Sports Net Rocky Mountain TV cameras or less than 30 seconds that remained on the clock. Nothing. As Kevin Cassell put it, he literally didn’t think about anything.

    He couldn’t other than making the catch.

  • Second place ‘awesome’ for...

    THORNTON — Micala Mitchek, sitting around waiting for the scores, wasn’t sure, Kelsey Valdez didn’t believe her team had won, and Evergreen head coach Marnie Bello was just trying to stay calm.

    Strong team performances on the vault, balance beam and uneven bars had the Evergreen Cougars in prime position to reclaim the 4A state gymnastics championship Nov. 6 at Thornton High School. And even a solid, if not spectacular, floor exercise would seemingly be enough.

  • Penalty kicks end Cougars’ season

    ENGLEWOOD — There are tough losses and then there are heartbreakers. Evergreen’s 1-1 (4-3 in penalty kicks) loss to eighth-seeded Broomfield in the 4A state semifinals certainly falls into the latter category.

    It was a game that took so long that even the penalty kicks couldn’t be decided in regulation. But, eventually, the Eagles (14-2-3) came out on top after two extra rounds of PKs.

  • Cougars advance to boys soccer...

    LAKEWOOD -- Danny Jensen’s ball skills and footwork were the key. The Evergreen sophomore didn’t score, but what he did do was pull the defense toward him. That set up Luke Adams to score the eventual game-winning goal as the fifth-seeded Cougars advanced to the 4A state semifinals on Nov. 3 with a 2-1 win over Jeffco League rival D’Evelyn at Lakewood Memorial Field.

  • Dark-eyed juncos bring color to...

    I am writing this on Sunday, Oct. 31. This has been a beautiful autumn Sunday with temperatures ranging from 60 this morning to the low 70s this afternoon.
    A light breeze is keeping it from being warmer, but the sky is at its best Colorado blue. I am still at Elk Run Assisted Living, disappointed that I need to stay a bit longer, but I now plan to be home with some of my family by Thanksgiving.

  • Mild fall brings out winged,...

    This has been a beautiful fall so far, with warm sunny days and blue skies.

    I am now getting physical therapy on my wrist and have enjoyed the warm, gold days as much as possible.

    I get outdoors for a bit most days to enjoy the fall weather while I can. Locally, some of the aspen are still green but other ones are in full color. From what I have seen on the TV news, many of the leaves have already been blown off in the high country.

  • Surprising state run a short stay

    AURORA — Time and time again Breeze Phillips threw the best pitch she could, and time and time again Mariah Peterson fouled it off. The Evergreen pitcher just couldn’t get the one pitch she needed. But Peterson got the one she wanted.

  • Evergreen takes third at league...

    LITTLETON — Twelve teams from all over Jefferson County, including Chatfield, Columbine and Evergreen High Schools, showed off their best gymnasts at the league championship on Oct. 23 at Chatfield High School.

    Bear Creek took top team honors, placing first with 182.150 points, Evergreen was third with 173.7 points, Chatfield took sixth with 164 points and Columbine was 10th with 152.475 points.
