  • Lady Cougars hang with...

    BROOMFIELD — A frustrated Amy Mohr called timeout with 6 minutes, 38 seconds left in the third quarter with her Evergreen Lady Cougars down 13 points. The fact that she showed such emotion with her team playing a perennial powerhouse in Broomfield though may have been a good sign.
    History would suggest that Evergreen had no business even being in the game with the Lady Eagles, considering Broomfield won five straight 4A state championships from 2007-11. But there the Lady Cougars were for most of the first half.

  • Cougars encouraged despite loss

    LAKEWOOD — Are there any plays more dramatic in basketball than a buzzer-beater? Like mid-court buzzer-beating 3-pointers that gives a team its first lead of the game, such as the one Evergreen senior Colin Elmgreen made as the clock ran out in the first half of the finals of the Paul Davis Classic  on Dec. 8 at Green Mountain High School.

  • Snowberries make an appearance...

    This has been an exceptionally warm, dry fall. We often have nice weather on Thanksgiving, but to have 60-degree days in December is unusual. Moist air coming in from the Pacific Ocean has soaked the West Coast with rain.

  • Mohr picks up first win at...

    DENVER — Freshman Samantha Kisiel scored a team-high 13 points, while senior Blair Bokelman scored 12 on 6-of-10 shooting as Evergreen won its first game of the season 47-31 over host Montbello on Dec. 1.
    Kisiel added 14 rebounds.
    The win was the first for head coach Amy Mohr, who took over this season.
    Evergreen held the Lady Warriors without a field goal in the first quarter to take an early 8-1 lead. The advantage was 21-13 at halftime and 33-23 after three quarters.

  • Lane, Cougars thump Eagles

    The Evergreen Cougars, quite simply, couldn’t have started the 2012-13 season off much better than they did Nov. 28.
    Behind a 22-2 outburst in the first quarter, the Cougars rolled to a 78-15 thrashing of 3A William Smith at Evergreen High School.
    Evergreen led 46-6 at halftime and 64-10 after three quarters.

  • EHS’ 200 freestyle relay sets...

    For the Courier
    You never want to call a race too early, especially if there’s a chance you could be wrong. But sometimes you know pretty quickly that it’s over. That was the case in the 200-yard freestyle relay Nov. 30 at the Wulf Recreation Center for the Evergreen girls ‘A’ team.

  • Cougars’ Kay gets season off on...

    CONIFER — Jake Kay walked off the mat exhausted. He knew that his opponent — Conifer’s Hunter Shively — was just as tired.
    “Both of us were going really hard that whole match maybe up to the last 10 seconds. By then both of us knew that it was pretty much over,” Kay said. “That was a tough one.”

  • Senior point guard embraces role...

    When Evergreen head boys basketball coach Scott Haebe sees Colin Elmgreen out on the floor he sees a little of himself. Maybe not so much literally, but figuratively.
    Elmgreen, as Evergreen’s point guard, has to be that captain every time the Cougars run up and down the court and Haebe knows that. He is the catalyst who makes Evergreen’s offense run.

  • Junior Elmgreen stands to be EHS...

    Erin Dobey. Graduated. Hailey Newhall. Graduated. Kylee Russell. Graduated.
    Right there is three-fourth of Evergreen’s top four scorers from the 2011-12 season. Then there’s Emily Elmgreen. The lone returning scorer of the bunch has a bull’s-eye on her as the Lady Cougars’ leader-in-waiting entering the 2012-13 season.
    Elmgreen, unquestionably, is expected to be the catalyst of Evergreen’s program this season, first-year head coach Amy Mohr said.
