  • Skunks and their smell are a...

    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.

  • First-half flurry too much for...

    ARVADA — Caroline Jenkins scored a first-half hat trick and Faith Christian remained undefeated with a 5-2 win over Evergreen on March 24.

    Hannah Blum and Shelby Ward added second-half goals for the Lady Eagles (3-0), who’ve scored 20 goals this season.

    Jenny Ventimiglia and Haley Stading scored for Evergreen (4-2), which had its two-game winning streak snapped. Kendra Kullby assisted on Ventimiglia’s goal. Kara Turner made four saves for Evergreen. Aubri Swan had 11 saves for Faith Christian.

  • Thrilling doubles wins highlight...

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen’s No. 2 and No. 4 doubles teams scored thrilling three-set victories in the Lady Cougars’ 7-0 win over Alameda on March 24.

    At No. 2, Erika and Rachel Chado defeated Laura Montes and Amy Nguyen, 6-4, 4-6, 10-5. At No. 4, Laura Schenk and Sammie Sexton defeated Annalisa Vargas and Geniya Anshanova, 4-6, 6-4, 10-2. Also winning were Morgan Nielsen (No. 1 singles), Kristin Shirk (No. 2), Emilee Greagor (No. 3), Christian Feagans and Genevieve DeGrandchamp (No. 1 doubles) and Madison Rogers and Madi Slack (No. 3).

  • Feathered friends make a spring...

    Oh, how good the sweet fresh air feels. I am sitting in the yard at the Life Care Center, and I can’t begin to describe what a pleasure it is to get outside.
    Yesterday was Friday, March 18, and a small band of mule deer wandered through the yard. The band included one male, two females and one young.
    He was no longer spotted but was very small. I wondered if it would make it through the winter.

  • Lady Cougars thrash Raiders

    AURORA — Written on a dry-erase board beside the Evergreen bench were head coach Rich O’Connor’s do’s and don’t for the Lady Cougars. On one list there was run toward passes, double team the ball carrier and communicate. On the other, there were don’t get a three-second violation, turn the ball over and go offsides among other things.

  • Evergreen scores early, often in...

    LAKEWOOD — Haley Stading would tell you that it’s difficult to get motivated for an inferior opponent, such as Alameda. Sure, the Lady Pirates’ record entering their March 21 game at Lakewood Memorial Field would’ve said otherwise — Alameda was 2-1 prior to the contest — but Evergreen knew what it was truly up against.

    And the Lady Cougars, in particular Stading, wasted little time in putting the game out of reach.

  • Roundup: Cougars’ offense...

    PARKER — Reilly Fletcher scored five goals and 10 players scored in all as Evergreen rolled to a 20-1 boys lacrosse win over host Legend on March 19.

    Evan Dyba added four goals, Brenden Cecil and Christian Butler scored two each while Mike Rodgers, Evan Dreggors, Braden Olson, Jamison Schaffnit, Derek Hallman and Scott Crews also scored for the Cougars (3-1).

    Evergreen has won three straight.
