    A few weeks ago while visiting the Evergreen Library, I noticed a female red fox curled up asleep in one of the landscape areas. Everyone was asking, “Why is she asleep in broad daylight” and “What is she doing there?”

  • Evergreen can’t keep up in 2nd...

    LAKEWOOD — Casey Kopchik just might be the first one to tell you that winning the season opener, which Chatfield did with a 7-4 victory over Evergreen on March 11 at Trailblazer Stadium, is huge, but you’ve got to keep pushing.

    The Chargers, ironically, made their first push in the second half. Chatfield, a state quarterfinalist a year ago, scored the game’s final four goals — two from Kopchik — to erase a brief second-half deficit.    

  • Cougars’ offense comes out firing

    LAFAYETTE — You can’t win them all if you don’t win the first one.

    The Evergreen Cougars’ girls soccer team can still have that hope as they opened their season in style, beating Centaurus, 5-2, on March 10 at Warriors Stadium.

    “It’s always good to start with a win,” senior Haley Stading said.

    Stading was a big part of it, putting in her first two goals of the season. But it was teammate Hailey Davey that got the team going, netting a hat trick.

  • Girls golf: Jagels paces Lady...

    AURORA — Somin Lee of Overland shot a 65 to take top honors at the Grandview Invitational on March 14 at Heritage Eagle Bend.

    Lauren Jagels led Evergreen with a 96, while Rachel Bechtholdt shot a 99. Maddie Moran (112) and Jennifer Butler (121), dealing with an ankle injury, also competed.

    Patricia Lee of Highlands Ranch came in second with a 67, followed by Valor Christian’s Lindsey McGetrick with a 69 and Katy Dachova of Arapahoe with a 70.

  • 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

    Reprinted from March 6, 2008

     

    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.
