  • Evergreen skiers earn their shot

    Zach Strande wasn’t supposed to be here. The Evergreen sophomore was on the outside looking in as one of 10 alternates for the 2011 Freestyle Junior Olympics in Steamboat Springs.

    The United State Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) only takes the top 60 skiers in moguls for the week-long event, which kicks off competition on March 9 and runs through the 13. Strande, however, was 64th in the standings. But one by one participants started to drop out and the next thing the 15-year-old knew was that not only was he going to Steamboat Springs, but he was competing.

  • Songs of spring heard in the...

    March came in like a lamb, but it was a very frisky one. The day was warm, blue and spring-like, but that little lamb kicked up its heels, creating a considerable amount of wind. Since then, March has been as fickle as usual, with warm near-70-degree days spiced with spring snow and typical wind.

  • Eighth-grader McCarty dusting...

    DENVER — There’s no flashy ring jacket. Just a red mouthpiece, a little shadow boxing on the side and a picture of concentration. That’s Garrett McCarty.

    A 13-year-old Evergreen Middle School seventh-grader, McCarty hasn’t always emphasized those characteristics. He boxed for two years, in the fourth and fifth grade, before he just stopped for a variety of reasons. He, as Clear Creek boxing coach Beau Campbell said, forgot just how close the boxing community truly is.

  • Finches flock to the tundra

    For many years when winter visitors to Colorado called us to inquire about where they could see rosy-finches, we would either take them or send them to the top of Squaw Mountain to visit the Swanlunds.

    When we were faced with this request recently, we didn’t know a really “sure spot” to send these visitors.

  • Graebel, Cougars conquer slalom

    It’s not that Kirk Petrik doesn’t have confidence in the Evergreen Cougars ski team. He does. But what it was able to accomplish Feb. 24-25 as Aspen Highlands during the 2011 state skiing championships, well, that was unexpected.

  • Cougars' upset of Indians...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — The No. 6 seed in the state isn’t supposed to struggle to beat the No. 27 seed, but they Cheyenne Mountain Lady Indians’ girls basketball team knew they were in for a tough one against Evergreen.

    In fact, the Lady Cougars played even with the bigger and deeper Lady Indians for a while. And even though they trailed 37-32 at the half, they quickly tied the game at 37 early in the third quarter.

  • Gorrell, foul trouble irk EHS

    CONIFER — Ali Meyers wasn’t sure about playing Emily Elmgreen in such a situation. But the freshman guard rose to the occasion. So did starter Taylor Rauch and the rest of Evergreen’s defense.

  • Unfortunate head injury ends Kay...

    DENVER — Jake Kay knows all too well what injuries can do to you. It was a shoulder injury that cut short his freshman season, keeping him from reaching the 4A state tournament. But the Evergreen 103-pound sophomore wasn’t about to let that happen again.

    And he didn’t.
