  • Theil leads Evergreen trio to 4A...

    LITTLETON — It would be easy for the Evergreen Cougars’ glass to be half-full considering Sam Theil, Kyle Peterson and Kyle Malazdrewicz qualified for the 4A boys state golf tournament. But there was also a half-empty feel to the team in the aftermath of the 4A Metro Regionals on Sept. 17 at Raccoon Creek Golf Course.
    Evergreen, a year after qualifying a four-man team to state in 2011, was one shot away from doing it again. But for a second straight year, the Cougars had to settle for third place at regionals behind Valor Christian and Mullen.

  • Skold, Sahli lead Cougars’ pack

    LITTLETON — Sammy Skold sat on the grass just outside of the Evergreen team tent. The discouraging look that crossed her face was undeniable.
    Even though the Evergreen senior placed third at the 35th running of the Liberty Bell Invitational on Sept. 14 at Heritage High School it wasn’t enough. After all, she’d won the race in 2011.

  • Yellow wildflowers herald the...

    Driving into town last week, I was amazed by the least chipmunk activity. Darting back and forth across the road with cheeks bulging, they were carrying great quantities of seeds and berries into their dens for winter food.

  • Errors aplenty spoil EHS’ home...

    Pinpointing where things went wrong for the Evergreen Cougars was virtually impossible, senior quarterback John Cassell said. There were too many possibilities.

  • Cougars have win slip out of...

    LAKEWOOD — It was the only clear shot Bear Creek had on Matthew Hornbecker. And, as it would turn out, it would be the one shot the Evergreen goalkeeper wish he could have back.
    Tyler Kipp’s boot left of the sun-shielded keeper bounced off Hornbecker’s hands into the wide-open net in the opening minutes. It would be the game’s lone goal as Bear Creek handed Evergreen its first loss of the season 1-0 in the finals of the 5A/4A South Jeffco Invitational on Sept. 8 at Lakewood Memorial Field.

  • EHS cooks up straight-set victory

    Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. It’s advise that any farmer or coach will tell you. It’s also advise that the Evergreen girls’ volleyball team heeded when it almost celebrated a pancake-play victory against Dakota Ridge before the point was overturned forcing a replay.
    In their 25-20, 25-23, 25-22 win over host Dakota Ridge on Sept. 5, the Lady Cougars managed to hold the ball and regain the serve when it counted, maintaining a low profile and never letting the Lady Eagles to get too much of a lead.

  • Evergreen runs table, wins Jeffco

    Evergreen boys golf coach Mike Kuzava was optimistic about his Cougars chances in the 4A Jeffco League even before the 2012 season got under way. But his players, saving their best for last, reaffirmed that belief Sept. 10 at Willis Case Golf Course in Denver.
    The Cougars carded a season-best team score of 295 in the regular-season finale to run the table in league play. In the process, Evergreen sewed up its first 4A Jeffco League championship since 1998. For the season, the Cougars won the league title by 68 strokes over second-place D’Evelyn.

  • Time to prepare feeders to help...

    I can’t believe it’s September already. But Labor Day is past, yellow school buses roll along our roads, and yellow wildflowers bloom along the shoulders of the road to my house.

  • Evergreen shows youth, lack of...

    WESTMINSTER — In the first regular-season gymnastics meet of the season, Chatfield, Evergreen and host Standley Lake faced off Aug. 30. The home gym advantage seemed to prove the added edge for Standley Lake, which took first place with 172.275 points. Chatfield was second with 165.975, and Evergreen placed third with 158.725 points.
    The competition was tough, especially for Evergreen, which has a largely young team that lacks depth.
