  • Tenney leads Lady Cougars charge

    LAKEWOOD — It wasn’t the way Madison Tenney wanted to start her round, but the Evergreen sophomore more than showed composure advanced for her years in closing it.
    Thinking she had to score better the Lady Cougars’ No. 1 girls golfer, after firing 4-over on the Par-4, 298-yard first hole, settled into a groove to finish with a 10-over 42 at The Homestead Golf Course on April 12.

  • Sayler outruns field at Pasadena

    Evergreen junior Jackson Sayler ran a personal-best time of 4 minutes, 23.55 seconds to capture first place at the South Pasadena Tiger Invitational in Pasadena, Calif., on April 6.
    Sayler broke free from the pack on the final lap en route to shattering his previous one-mile mark by 12 seconds. His previous personal best of 4:33 was set earlier this year in Pocatello, Idaho.

  • Red-hot Cougars thump Chargers

    LAKEWOOD — One look at the Evergreen boys’ lacrosse team’s 8-0 record and it’s easy to see that they are having a red-hot season. So when they defeated the Chatfield Chargers 12-5 on April 4 at Trailblazer Stadium, the only thing that was shocking was that it was the first time the Cougars had beat the Chargers.

  • EHS finds rhythm to blank Conifer

    On the back of Katherine Hardy’s racket the word rythm is written. It is her motto to keep every tennis match going. And even though Evergreen’s No. 2 girls singles player lost some of that rhythm in her match with Conifer’s Kirsten Hafemen momentarily on April 5 she found enough of it when it mattered most.

  • Western red squirrels begin...

    March has been an interesting month with weather zig-zagging between record highs, record lows, exceptional spring-like weather along with exceptional drought with which came a serious forest fire near Conifer. All of this brought a great deal of uncertainty.
    April has already greeted us with a rain and a snowstorm, and we can’t help but wonder what else it will bring before the month is up. April has a reputation of being unable to make up its mind as to whether she will spring or put on her parka and dive back into winter.

  • Spring sports look ahead

    With spring break over, the Canyon Courier takes a look back at the initial part of the spring season for some of our area teams as they resume play for the remainder of the 2012 season:

    GIRLS SOCCER: SIZZLING OUT OF THE GATE
    Evergreen’s girls soccer team is off to a flying start, having won four of its first five games and come out of spring break with an undefeated 4-0-1 record.
    The Lady Cougars have given up just three goals this season behind 18 saves from freshman goalkeeper Natalie Ulfig.

  • Cougars sophomore Englehart...

    Sophomore hurler Jake Englehart hurled a no-hitter, finishing one batter shy of a perfect game, as Evergreen capped a three-game spring break trip to Arizona with a 5-0 victory over Cactus (Ariz.) on March 29 in the Greenway Festival.
    The complete game  was Englehart’s third win of the season. He walked one, while striking out three in facing just one batter over the minimum.

  • GETTING BACK ON THE MOUND

    Eric Castillo felt the pain. He saw the swelling on his left knee. But no matter what the pain wouldn’t go away. And, unfortunately, there was an all-too-real reasoning for that.
    The now-Clear Creek High School freshman was suffering from Ewing’s Sarcoma, a form of bone cancer that was hindering not only his knee but the tibia bone. The diagnosis came in January 2011 and all but threatened to end his baseball career, even before it truthfully got started.

  • Fascinating great-horned owls...

    The great spring weather has miraculously continued through another full week of late March. In fact, March has been so unusually mild, I am beginning to worry about what April and May will bring.
