  • Evergreen boys, girls rule...

    Courier staff
    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen High School won both the girls and boys 4A Jeffco League track and field championships on May 12 at Jefferson County Stadium.
    The girls won with a league-best 222 points, topping D’Evelyn for the 4A honors. The Lady Jaguars finished with 199 points. Lakewood was the top 5A school with 175.5.
    The EHS boys scored 193 points, just topping 5A Chatfield, which finished with 188.5. D’Evelyn was second among 4A schools with 159.

  • Lady Cougars lack poise in...

    MONUMENT — Blood, sweat and tears, Evergreen had a little bit of it all on May 10.
    First, the Lady Cougars had blood courtesy of the bitten tongue of freshman scoring machine Zoe Peterson in the first half. Then there’s the sweat. They are playing soccer after all. And, finally, the tears for a season that ended at Don Breese Stadium in the second round of the 4A state girls soccer playoffs.

  • Evergreen puts on a hitting...

    The Evergreen Cougars put on a hitting clinic May 4 against rival Conifer. And every time the Lobos answered, Evergreen answered right back.
    The home-standing Cougars scored four runs or more in four consecutive innings, capping the game with a Joe Danni game-ending RBI single in the fifth inning for a 17-7 win. And it’s wasn’t just one individual — it was a collective effort for the Cougars, as all nine guys contributed in some form or another.

  • EHS knocks on the door, but can’...

    DENVER — It was a recurring theme for the Evergreen Lady Cougars. In a Region 1 girls tennis tournament that featured the likes of host Colorado Academy, Valor Christian and Alexander Dawson, Evergreen was knocking on the door time and again to qualify someone for this week’s 4A state tournament in Pueblo. But it didn’t quite happen.

  • Bounce doesn’t go EHS’ way

    LAKEWOOD — No, Evergreen didn’t win the 4A Jeffco League girls soccer championship on May 3 at Lakewood Memorial Field. That honor was bestowed on preseason favorite Green Mountain, thanks to a Jenn Brunsdon rebounded goal in the 68th minute for a 1-0 victory.
    But while Evergreen was denied a league title, it may have gained something even more important — the confidence to play the state’s best with the 4A playoffs on the horizon.

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen’s Madison Tenney’s golf ball went swimming twice in the May 6 Class 4A Metro West Regional golf meet at Fox Hollow Golf Club. Had that not happened, she might have well finished fifth among the tournaments 76 contestants.

  • Hummingbird feeders need...

    Once more we have snow in May. This is a bit disturbing because we have just had some fine spring weather in April, and this seems like we are going backward. We don’t really want to see winter return, but it is not unusual. All of the ice was off Evergreen Lake by April 30.

  • Confounding phalaropes are...

    In last week’s article, I mentioned that many people had reported seeing phalaropes on Buchanan Pond on Sunday, April 21. Since then, I have had many inquiries about these birds such as: “What are they?” “Why haven’t we ever seen one?” “Where are they found?”

  • EHS pleased just to play

    GOLDEN — It hasn’t been the greatest of seasons for the Evergreen girls golf team. But for that matter, it hasn’t been all that great for the rest of the state either.

  • Lady Cougars stay on task,...

    The first half was a free-flowing offensive showcase, with both host Evergreen and Conifer pelting shots on goal from long distance.
    The second half was all about the Lady Cougars staying focused on the task at hand. That task was not only staying unbeaten in the 4A Jeffco League, but doing something they haven’t done in three years — and that’s beat Conifer.
