    DENVER —The Evergreen tennis team doubled up at last week’s Class 4A Region 1 tournament.
    After qualifying one doubles team for last year’s state tournament, the Cougars advanced a pair of their four tandems to this week’s championship at Pueblo City Park — Evan Bauer and Lucas Weidner at No. 3 and Peter Fellows and Teddy Evans at No. 4.

  • Tourney leaves EHS wanting more

    Kyle Malazdrewicz’s voice quivered with disappointment. Kyle Peterson’s too. The Evergreen boys golf team’s top two seniors, along with freshman Liam Short, had the perfect setting. Beautiful, sunny weather and their home course — Hiwan Golf Club — serving as the backdrop for the 2013 4A state tournament.

  • Repairs to flood-damaged parks...

    Extensive damage to Lair O’ the Bear and other Jeffco Open Space parks caused by recent flooding will take several months to repair, said Stanton LaBreche, Jeffco parks operations manager.

    During his presentation to the Jeffco Open Space Advisory Committee last Thursday night, LaBreche said that heavily damaged parks in the system will be closed until the first or second quarter of 2014.

    In addition to Lair O’ the Bear in Bear Creek Canyon, trails at Apex and White Ranch parks are closed indefinitely.

  • Harmless Mexican woodrats...

    This past week brought two interesting events to my attention: a letter from a reader of this column asing for helpin in identifying a bird was forwarded to me from the newspaper and another reader called me to ask about a critter in her yard.

    While the homecoming festivities last week made for some late nights for students at Evergreen High School, the Lady Cougars’ gymnasts didn’t slow down. In fact, they seemed to thrive under pressure.
    For the seniors, Sept. 26 was the last chance for a victory in their home gym during the regular season, and they didn’t buckle under the pressure. In fact, the Cougars had the highest scoring  meet of the 2013 season.

  • Cougars unload on Lobos

    CONIFER — The Evergreen Cougars were clicking in every phase of the game. And that was just in the first half. Evergreen scored the game’s first four goals and added seven more after that to befuddle host Conifer 11-1 on Sept. 30 at Lobo Field. The game was called with 6 minutes, 46 seconds left in the second half due to the 10-goal mercy rule.

  • Evergreen front line blocks CHS

    CONIFER — For the most part, the difference between Evergreen’s volleyball program and Conifer’s is minuscule. But if one wants to find a decisive advantage, it would have to be the Lady Cougars’ strength on the front line, especially with players such as Andrea Eddy.
    Only a sophomore, Eddy is an imposing figure on the court. She was a major factor in Evergreen’s attack, recording a match-high 13 kills in a 26-24, 25-21, 25-18 win over host Conifer on Sept. 26 at Conifer High School.

  • Pack leads EHS to top runs

    LITTLETON — Being from New England — Connecticut to be exact — Caitlin Schmitt didn’t mind the persistent rain that fell Sept. 27 at the Dave Sanders Invitational. It was her kind of weather. It suited the Evergreen Lady Cougars just fine as well.
    Led by Schmitt’s sixth-place finish in 19 minutes, 46 seconds, the Evergreen girls took first place in the Division 2 varsity race at Clement Park with 56 points. The Lady Cougars, who had four runners in the top 23, edged second-place Coronado by a point.

  • Health focus in open space...

    The relationship between open space and public health gets an inordinate amount of attention in a second draft of the master plan for Jeffco Parks and Open Space, according to some members of the advisory committee.

    “I think there is an inordinate amount of text devoted to community health,” Jan Wilkins said while reviewing the second draft of the plan with other committee members last Thursday night.

    “There are so many aspects of open space,” Wilkins said. “There should be a more comprehensive description of what we do.”
