  • Lady Cougars rally late to stun...

    It featured three lead changes and two ties, and that was just in the first five minutes of the fourth quarter.
    Evergreen and Conifer girls basketball teams played a classic back-and-forth affair Feb. 22, and it was the Lady Cougars who used a late run to earn a 42-35 win.

  • Kay finally finds his place at...

    DENVER — Jake Kay was running the mat, shaking his arms loose just like all the other competitors preparing for the opening night session of the 4A state wrestling tournament at the Pepsi Center. With his Evergreen Cougars’ warm-up jacket on and his first match of the three-day tournament still more than 90 minutes away, Kay showed the focus that has identified him in his senior season.

  • Box elder trees add character to...

    If you are lucky enough to live in one of the stream valleys, you may have some box elder trees growing near your house. I hope you will make time to really watch them for at least a few minutes every day.

     

    Not only are box elder trees interesting in their own right, but they also seem to attract many birds, especially when they have many seeds hanging on their branches. Box elder is the name by which most of us know this tree, but botanically, it is known as Acer negundo.

  • Hardy species hang around...

    Snowy February has fairly well lived up to its name. We have not had deep snow here, but frequent light snow and cold weather have kept the ground carpeted in white. Of course, more lies ahead for us for spring snows are usually deeper although less frequent.

     

    March snows are usually deep, wet and heavy. Even April, our second snowiest month, brings this same kind of snow with nice spring days in between. Spring can’t come too soon for me for I have cabin fever and just can’t wait to get outside.

    The Evergreen High School ski team reached the podium for the first time in school history after the boys’ slalom and giant slalom teams, as well as the girls’ slalom team, took first place at the Colorado High School state skiing championships Feb. 14-15 in Winter Park. Evergreen posted its highest overall score in alpine and was runner-up in the overall competition.

  • EHS’ Kay focused on state from...

    DENVER — Jake Kay, if nothing else, has tunnel vision. The Evergreen senior has been focused since the 2012-13 season began on getting back to the 4A state wrestling championships. Nothing else would be satisfying.
    Guess what, that’s where he’s headed.

  • Cougars escape Golden, but just...

    GOLDEN — Chase Kelly never knew otherwise if he was to hold the ball out for a potential last-second shot or not. All he saw was an opportunity and he took it.
    “I don’t know. I didn’t hear coach say one shot or anything,” Kelly said. “I was wide open. I felt like it was the best shot we would get on the possession. I took it and it ended up good.”

  • Slow start dooms Lady Cougars

    GOLDEN — Be it the 16 rebounds in the first half — 12 on the defensive glass — or Golden’s 14-3 run late in the second quarter there’s little question that the Lady Demons came out ready to play.
    Even though the team is on restrictions via CHSAA for superseding varsity and junior varsity playing time, as  reported by the Denver Post, Golden played early in its 47-40 home victory over Evergreen on Feb.14 like a team on a mission.

    DENVER — It was billed as the rematch and a chance for the Evergreen boys basketball team to stake its claim as an equal with D’Evelyn atop the 4A Jeffco League.
    Unfortunately for the Cougars, that didn’t happen. Evergreen lost 72-45 at D’Evelyn on  Feb 8 and fell to 8-2 in league play while the Jaguars remained perfect, moving to 10-0.
