    The other match-up in the four-team regional pits third-seeded Lewis-Palmer (17-2) vs. No. 30 seed Vista Ridge (8-11), also at 10 a.m. The winners will play at 12:15 p.m. with a berth to the 4A state tournament at stake. The losers also play at 12:15, with the winner of that game to face the winner’s bracket loser at 2:30 p.m. for a second state tournament spot.

  • Zuckerman, Theil fall into the...

    Evergreen golfers Adam Zuckerman and Sam Theil struggled at the 4A boys state golf championships at The Club at Flying Horse in Colorado Springs on Oct. 4-5. Zuckerman shot a consistent 13-over 85 on both days to finish tied for 70th with a 170 total and Theil was one shot back at 171, tied for 72nd.

    John Ahern of D’Evelyn was the top medalist with a 7-under 137 and Valor Christian won the team title with a 433 total, 15 shots better than Cortez and D’Evelyn.

  • Cougars’ Hamilton captures...

    LITTLETON — Evergreen’s Jak Hamilton won the Division 2 boys race at the Dave Sanders Invitational at Clement Park on Oct. 1, and the girls team took top honors with three finishers in the top four.

    Hamilton won the boys race in a time of 16 minutes, 29 seconds, beating out Pomona’s Dezmin Rameriz by six seconds. Fellow Evergreen runners Jackson Sayler and Andre Lane finished in the top six, but Pomona placed six runners in the top 15 en route to team honors by three points over the Cougars.

  • Offensive-minded Cougars keep...

    CONIFER — The Conifer Lobos shouldn’t be offended if Evergreen comes off a little offensive. It’s just the Cougars’ style.

    On the soccer field, that is.

    The way Evergreen head coach Peter Jeans sees it is that if his Cougars can play a more offensive-style of game and play a ball-control attack then it only increases the likelihood his team will win. That’s exactly how Evergreen approached its Mountain Challenge Cup battle with the host Lobos on Sept. 30.

  • Cougars gymnasts look to improve...

    ARVADA — It wasn’t Evergreen’s best performance. Head coach Marnie Bello would tell you that. But there were numerous reasons for that.

    Mainly injuries, which have hampered the Cougars all season long, if not longer. Thus, the team’s 168.4-156.175 loss to Arvada West on Sept. 30 at Pomona High School didn’t serve as much of an indicator at what Evergreen is capable of doing. But, even still, the Cougars put their best foot forward and came away with some impressive performances.

  • Roundup: Cougars tennis team...

    Evergreen won every match in straight sets, led by Nate Chart’s 6-2, 6-1 victory at No. 1 singles, as the host Cougars shut out Green Mountain, 7-0, on Sept. 30. 

    The No. 4 doubles team of Brad Lindsay and Steve Jensen posted a 6-0, 6-0 win over Green Mountain’s Justin Olson and Trevor Olson.

    Other winners for Evergreen were No. 2 singles Stephen Hardy, No. 3 singles Bryan Repko, No. 1 doubles team of Peter Hassinger and Matt Golub, No. 2 doubles team of Seth Purkey and Jack Staebel and No 3 doubles squad of Cameron Sadler and Garrett Smith.

  • Beautiful fall presages winter’s...

    This has been a beautiful fall, with the best color being at lower elevations, such as around Evergreen. The aspen in Little Cub Creek Valley have been at their best for a week now, but strong breezes have begun to take their toll.

    October has brought some of the warm weather we looked for in September, and we have enjoyed the Indian summer days.

  • Cougars’ chance for victory...

    AURORA — Ethan Lederer had the ball and then he didn’t. Unfortunately for Evergreen that one miscue less than a minute into the second overtime proved to be the difference.
    Howie Samuel’s rocket shot from 30 yards out ricocheted off Lederer’s hands and trickled into the back of net, sending host Smoky Hill to a 2-1 double overtime victory over Evergreen on Sept. 25 at Legacy Stadium.

  • A view from Sylvia’s window

    As most of my friends know, I took a tumble in early August and broke my right wrist, so I have been confined to a nursing home ever since I got out of the hospital. That’s only because I can’t manage very well by myself with only one arm. However, it’s doing well and I’ll soon be out of a cast and then I can do a great deal more, I hope, even though it will still be stiff and sore.
