  • Pedersen, D’Evelyn edge Cougars

    DENVER — Anthony Pedersen carded a 1-under 71 along with Green Mountain’s Blake Kuzava to lead the way at the 4A Jeffco League golf tournament at Willis Case Golf Course on Aug.19.
    Evergreen’s Kyle Peterson carded a 1-over 73.
    D’Evelyn shot a 295 team total to top the Cougars by six strokes. Golden was a distant third with a 327. Conifer took sixth with a score of 366.

  • Peterson, Cougars off to a fast...

    WESTMINSTER — Kyle Peterson called it a shaky start. His swing wasn’t there and a feeling overcame the Evergreen senior golfer that this might not be his day. Then there was a birdie, then another and two more to follow on the back nine. The 4A Jeffco League opener at Hyland Hills Golf Course turned around just that quickly.

  • Swallows among last to leave...

    There were two swallows flying around the yard last evening. It was just before dark, and I was pleased to see them for the usual residents of one of my bird boxes, a pair of violet-green swallows, did not return this year, and I have sorely missed them.

  • First-time runners use...

    IDAHO SPRINGS — Matthew Kempton had heard a lot about the Georgetown to Idaho Springs Half Marathon, but the 28-year-old Denver resident had never run it — until Saturday.
    “It seemed like a good idea. I’ve heard good things about the race,” Kempton said. “I’ve wanted to come up and do it. It seemed like a good year to come up and do it.”

  • Senior Peterson prepared for...

    Kyle Peterson is committed to his trade. The Evergreen senior golfer played in so many tournaments this summer that there were, in his words, too many to count.
    Yet it should come as no surprise that he was in contention in quite a few of those tournaments, even winning a Rocky Mountain Junior golf tournament in Broomfield in May with a two-day total of 1-over-par 145. It is those experiences that Peterson hopes to benefit from when Evergreen High opens the 2013 season Aug. 14 at Hyland Hills Golf Course in Westminster.

  • Well-mannered waxwings are...
  • Column: Look here, fall sports...

    Have you looked around a bit lately? No? Than take a peek. Go by the nearest high school or golf course. Chances are you’ll see a golfer, a football player or a runner cross your path. It is August after all.
    You know what that means? With school on the horizon — hard to believe, I know — high school athletics are here again, too.
    It seems as if the summer just flew by. In a lot of ways, it did. I blinked and seemingly missed it. And though it’s still a wee bit warm out there, for me at least, there’s no better time of the year.

    Aug. 4 was a great day in the lives of the Szuch family of Evergreen.
    Caroline Szuch, 40, was the master’s female overall winner in the 5k portion of  the Evergreen Town Race which supports the Alpine Rescue Team.  She crossed the finish line near Evergreen Lake in 19 minutes, 26 seconds.  
    Nearly one minute earlier, 11-year-old Colin Szuch dominated the U-12 male division with a time of 18:19. Alayna Szuch, 9, took the U-12 female division in 19:49.
