    Inertia, the property that tends to keep a body in motion, emanated throughout Evergreen High School’s gym Sept. 27 as the Lady Cougars defeated rival Conifer 27-25, 20-25, 25-23, 25-21.
    With the sound system blasting feet-twitching tunes that made officials and coaches bust some dance moves in front of a packed house, the girls on the court fed off the energy creating a dynamic game of attack and defend.

    LITTLETON — It was starting to become a regular occurrence. Three times this season, Sammy Skold placed third – at the season-opening Cheyenne Mountain Stampede, the Joe Vigil Open and the Liberty Bell. Her last win seemed like a distant memory.
    But she doesn’t have to worry about that any longer. Skold, who last won at the 2011 Liberty Bell, captured the annual Dave Sanders Invitational at Clement Park on Sept. 28 in a time of 19 minutes, 52 seconds.

    Sam Theil could’ve reflected back on his 3-over-par 75 at the 4A Metro Regionals and saw how it motivated him into the state tournament for a third consecutive year. He could also look back at his previous two trips and offer invaluable advice to his younger teammates, Kyle Peterson and Kyle Malazdrewicz.

    A broken bat and broken hearts were all that the Conifer Lady Lobos’ softball team left with after being defeated by the Evergreen Lady Cougars, 6-3, on Sept. 22 at Evegreen High School.
    “We didn’t execute,” Conifer head coach Carrie Oletski said. “We had chances where we should have dropped a bunt and we couldn’t drop a bunt. We had runners on second with two outs and we didn’t go on the hit, so we didn’t score. It was all of the things that we have been working on (in practice) that just didn’t come together.”

    CONIFER — Before the game, at halftime after his defense made a goal-line stand late in the second quarter, and, shoot, probably during the week of preparation, Evergreen head coach Rob Molholm was his overly animated self.
