  • Roundup: Murphy, Maroney lead...

    DENVER — Ethan Murphy went 4-for-6 with a homer and four RBIs and Evergreen jumped out to an 11-run lead in the first inning and never looked back en route to a 23-1 baseball win over Denver South on April 9.

    James Maroney also homered and scored three runs, while Cody Jess was 3-for-4 with a double, triple, four RBIs and four runs scored.

    In all, the Cougars (7-2) collected 25 hits.

  • All-conference girls swimming

    Following is a list of the all-conference selections in girls swimming in the 4A Jeffco League for the winter sports season:

  • New book details bird migration...

    The next two months are the most exciting time of the year to all birders. They are the months of spring migration, when thousands of birds move from South and Central America to their breeding grounds in the United States and Canada.
    It is not quite clear why birds make this journey of thousands of miles twice a year, but they do. Many of them migrate at night. Unseen, they pass overhead with no one the wiser except for hearing their call notes. Call notes are short chirps that birds use to keep their flocks together in flight.

  • A game on the rise

    Sam Soell, like his teammates, braved a chilly Friday night at Marshdale Elementary School for the hour-and-half lacrosse practice for the sixth- and seventh-grade team. The Mountain Lacrosse league season-opener was right around the corner and Soell and his teammates needed to be ready.

  • For Evergreen graduate Adams it’...

    Danielle Adams has always been an athletic-type. She played soccer and she was a gymnast. And the 2010 Evergreen High School graduate always pictured herself using one of those sports as a springboard into college. Then snowboarding came along.

    “My senior year I was into snowboarding more than anything. It was something that I was more passionate about,” Adams said. 

  • Winter sports all-conference...

    Following is a list of all-conference selections in the 4A Jeffco League for the winter sports season:

    The vernal equinox occurs when the tilt of the Earth and angle of the sun is directly overhead at the Equator at noon, thus causing equal hours of daylight and darkness. This occurs annually between March 20 and March 22. Thus, this year, the first day of spring was officially on March 20. From that day forward, the days get longer and the hours of darkness decrease until June when the summer solstice marks the longest day of the year, also known as midsummerís eve.

  • Short-handed Cougars no match

    LAKEWOOD — After a disappointing 2010 season in which Chatfield went just 5-10, the Lady Chargers are looking like a force to be reckoned with in 2011. Already sporting big victories over Cherokee Trail and Cherry Creek‘s No. 2 team, Chatfield showed Evergreen it’s ready for a big year with a 24-4 victory over the Lady Cougars on March 24 at Trailblazer Stadium. 

  • Aafedt jumps in winner’s lane

    LAKEWOOD — You’ll have to forgive Allison Aafedt. It’s the Evergreen junior’s first year of running track. So when she cut in from her lane — lane four — to the far inside lane, albeit briefly, during the girls’ 400-meter run on March 24 at the 4A Jeffco Pre-Qualifier it was just a sign on her inexperience.

  • Pitching, big innings lift...

    DENVER — Lute Moss struck out nine and Evergreen had a pair of four-run innings early en route to a 9-2 win over John F. Kennedy on March 26.

    The Cougars (3-1) swept the doubleheader with a 13-3 win in the nightcap.

    James Maroney went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored for Evergreen in the opener. 

    In game two, Evergreen scored nine runs in the first inning and rolled from there. Seth Purkey fanned four to score the win. Sam Grise doubled and scored two runs for the Cougars.
