  • Skold, Evergreen win league...

    LAKEWOOD — Samantha Skold probably wouldn’t have ran the pace that she did if not for teammate Maura O’Brien being right there with her. As it turns out, O’Brien’s presence helped fuel Skold to a 4A Jeffco League championship in the 1,600 meters on May 14.

  • Cougars falter in playoff opener

    This was not the way Evergreen wanted the season to end, losing five straight. But at the least the Cougars went down swinging.

    The No. 22 seed in the 32-team 4A district baseball tournament, Evergreen (13-7) saw its season come to a close with a 3-2 loss to 11th-seeded Air Academy on May 14 in Durango.

  • No. 2 duo didn’t go quietly

    Christian Feagans and Genieve Degrandchamp didn’t win, but, boy, did Evergreen’s No. 2 doubles team make their presence felt at the 4A state girls tennis championships last week.

    The regional runner-ups faced Broomfield’s Bailey Schnoor and Shivaun Wood in the opening round of the three-day tournament and, for a brief moment, appeared ready to end the Lady Eagles’ shot at placing in the 16-team field before the event got rolling.

     But Schnoor and Wood persevered to score a 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 win on May 12 at Pueblo City Park.

  • Spring birds make their...

    Spring has finally arrived with days hovering around 70 degrees and nights only just freezing. Here in the foothills, I don’t trust the night temperatures until after June 1, and even then we have a frost occasionally. Most of our summer birds arrive during the first week of May, and many of them came in as usual last week.

  • Conifer boots Evergreen

    Concerns, what concerns. The sharp-dressed, cool-as-can-be Matthew Guglielmo said he didn’t have any, not with his Conifer Lady Lobos clinging to a one-goal lead over an intense final 14 minutes May 5 at Evergreen High School.

    Not even after Hailey Davey pulled host Evergreen to within a goal with 14 minutes, 12 seconds left or when the Lady Cougars pelted the Conifer goal with a pair of corner kick opportunities in the closing 40 seconds did he worry. But it would take the final buzzer before Conifer could exhale after a crucial 3-2 win.

  • Cougars’ dedicated season ends...

    LOUISVILLE — Toby Plank was looking down on the Evergreen Cougars’ boys lacrosse team on May 6 no doubt about it.

    While Plank, the former Evergreen head coach who passed away last December at the age of 36 due to complications from carcenoid cancer, wasn’t with the team literally his presence has been felt all season long.

  • EHS’ No. 2 doubles team going to...

    DENVER — Christian Feagans and Genevieve DeGrandchamp didn’t have a choice. The Evergreen duo knew that if it wanted to go to this week’s 4A state girls tennis tournament in Pueblo it would have to beat either the No. 2 doubles team from Colorado Academy or Regis Jesuit to get there. Maybe both.

  • Cougars leave chances on base

    LAKEWOOD — It’s probably not the way the Evergreen Cougars, especially head coach Terry Hensley, would’ve liked to have been heading into the postseason. But, rest assured, Evergreen hasn’t exactly been playing slouch competition of late.

  • Teal, gulls plentiful at...

    There have been many species of birds on Evergreen Lake during April. Despite the cool weather, the ice has remained out and with open water, many birds stop just long enough to rest and feed as they continue to move northward for the summer.

    One day last week, we had a thunderstorm in the early afternoon that started with a loud clap of thunder followed by a heavy rain, then sleet, then wet snow, followed by hail and more thunder and lightning. As weird as that seems, I can only say that is more or less typical of spring weather in the mountains.

  • Fate, luck not on Evergreen’s...

    LAKEWOOD — Hailey Davey, make no bones about it, thought that Evergreen was the better team. 

    And though the flow of the game, the teams’ records and Green Mountain’s No. 2 ranking in 4A would say otherwise, the Lady Cougars more than held their own on April 28 at Lakewood Memorial Field. But one unfortunate play off one way too many corner kicks allowed the Jeffco League’s top team to escape with a 3-2 double overtime victory.
