  • Evergreen golfers on the prowl

    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.
    He could have, but Theil knew what the 4A boys golf state tournament truly takes.

    Over the years, my late husband, Bill, and I drove the highway to the summit of Mount Evans many, many times. It was one of our favorite places. We loved the high mountains, and Mount Evans was one of the good guys because he wore a white hat (of snow).

    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.”

  • SHOCKER: COUGARS UPSET LOBOS

    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.
    And why not. He was doing what he does to pump up his team.

    September is such an unpredictable month. It is a lovely end of summer with warm sunny days and cool nights. It is gray cold days with scattered showers. It often brings the first snow, which usually melts the next day, as well as our first frost. It wants to be summer, but winter is pushing at the door so hard that it will soon be in, whether we like it or not.

  • Golub, Cougars overpower rival...

    CONIFER — Skylar Budd’s game was fairly consistent. But as his match with Evergreen’s Matt Golub went along the Cougars’ No. 1 singles player’s confidence grew. Golub started hitting more ground strokes into the corner. He started taking more chances. And he was getting a lot of winners because of that.
    It all added up to a 6-0, 6-1 win for Golub in Evergreen’s eventual 6-1 team victory Sept. 13 at Conifer High School’s tennis courts.
