  • Evergreen comes up one win short...

    LONGMONT — It didn’t take Evergreen volleyball coach Katie Ryan long to pinpoint where her Lady Cougars’ volleyball team missed its chance to get into this weekend’s regional volleyball tournament.

  • Jackson’s goal, assist lift...

    Ethan Jackson scored one goal and assisted on another as the Evergreen Cougars advanced to the 4A state quarterfinals with a 4-1 win over 15th-seeded Durango on Oct. 29 at Evergreen High School.
    Sam Hamilton, Scott Boland and Brian Grieve also scored for the Cougars, who played 10th-seeded Battle Mountain (14-1-2), a 7-1 winner over Sand Creek, in the quarterfinals on Nov. 1. Results of that game weren’t available at press time, but can be found online at www.canyoncourier.com.
    Kevin Schulte and Jared Cochran added an assist against Durango.
     

  • Cougars kick off playoffs in...

    There may have been snow pushed off to the side of the field. There was certainly a chill in the air. But Evergreen’s boys soccer team was more than a little warmed up for its 4A state playoff opener on Oct. 27 against Vista Ridge.
    The Cougars, the No. 2 seed in this year’s 32-team tournament, already led by two goals when they exploded for six more scores in the game’s final 33 minutes for an 8-0 rout. Six players scored for Evergreen, including two goals each from Colton Cavey and Jared Cochran.

  • Cougars struggle to hang on

    AURORA — It was the second mile of the 3.1-mile 4A state cross country championship at Arapahoe County Fairgrounds and there was Jackson Sayler out front in the lead. No other runner was in front of the Evergreen junior.
    It was though, unfortunately, just the second mile.
    Sayler, who admitted mentally he gave up, faltered back to a 58th-place finish in 17 minutes, 52.32 seconds in the 187-runner field on Oct. 29.

  • Solitaires stay around and stake...

    The first Townsend’s solitaire that I ever saw was shortly after we moved to Colorado in April 1965. I was looking around our new yard and saw a strange gray bird just across the road, clinging to a giant mullein stalk in the open valley above Little Cub Creek. I watched it digging insects out of the dead mullein stalk and thought how often I had seen downy woodpeckers acting in the same manner.

  • Evergreen out in quarterfinals

    AURORA — Breeze Phillips walked off the field and let out a sigh of relief.
    The Evergreen ace pitcher had held Broomfield in check for six innings, allowing just two early runs. But the ninth-seeded Lady Eagles, with their backs up against the wall, scored three runs in the top of the seventh and had the tying run on second with one out.

  • O’Brien rolls on, captures...

    DENVER — Maura O’Brien, on the heels of winning the 4A Jeffco League championship, ran a time of 19 minutes, 40 seconds and won the 4A Region 1 championship on Oct. 21 at Denver’s City Park.

  • Sayler places second at regionals

    DENVER — Evergreen’s Jackson Sayler finished in 16 minutes, 47 seconds, placing second at the 4A Region 1 cross country championships on Oct. 21 at Denver’s City Park. He finished just three seconds back of Centaurus’ Chandler Reid.
    Evergreen, as a team, placed fifth with 116 points, qualifying for the 4A state championships on Oct. 29 at Aurora’s Arapahoe County Fairgrounds.
    Other finishers were Sam Sahli (14th), Jeff Sahli (27th), Nick Marti (32nd), George Clark (41st), Thomas Warren (43rd), and Daniel Holmes (46th).

  • Lady Cougars rally past Green...

    LAKEWOOD — In a back-and-forth match Oct. 20, the Evergreen Lady Cougars collected a 3-2, fifth-game win against Green Mountain.
    Evergreen, a straight-set winner over Thomas Jefferson in its regular-season finale one day later, has won 10 of it last 12 entering postseason play. The Lady Cougars (14-5, 8-2 4A Jeffco) are the third seed of the Jeffco League and will play in the District 1 tournament Oct. 28-29 at Longmont High School. Evergreen is joined in the district by Longmont, Denver South, Frederick, Niwot and Elizabeth.
