  • Platte Canyon has showing at...

     BRIGHTON — Platte Canyon showed strength as a team during the Mercury Classic in Brighton on Thursday.

    On the girls side, Hayley Rayburn led Platte Canyon with a second-place finish as she cleared 9 feet, 6 inches with her highest jump. Kaylynn MacGill placed fourth while Kenny Thomas finished ninth.

  • Conifer girls blank Wheat Ridge

    The Conifer girls lacrosse team showed perfection on defense Thursday night in a 12-0 victory over Wheat Ridge.

    Junior goalkeeper Caitlin Estill faced little adversity in the win as Wheat Ridge took just two shots on goal, both stopped by Estill.

  • Evergreen swimming wins...

    LITTLETON — In the believe-it-or-not category, Jack Moranetz and Josh Gauvain, the star junior swimmers for D’Evelyn and Evergreen, who competed in the 200-yard freestyle at last year’s 4A Jeffco and state meets, have never met formally and say they are, at the most, only vaguely familiar with each other’s accomplishments.

  • Evergreen girls find success...

    In sports, success often comes after years of building a strong program. For the Evergreen girls lacrosse team, winning is becoming a familar thing and the program is only in year one.

    On March 22, the Cougars picked up its second win of the season with a 20-2 victory over Rangeview.

    “I thought the girls played good,” said Evergreen head coach Kevin Krum. “It is early in the season so we still have quite a bit to work on.”

  • No. 5 Conifer lacrosse ends...

    LAKEWOOD — Scoring goals shouldn’t be much of a problem for Conifer’s boys lacrosse team this spring.

    The Lobos, No. 5 in last week’s CHSAANow.com Class 4A boys lacrosse poll, showed off their offensive skill March 24 at Trailblazer Stadium scoring a season-high 16 goals in the non-league victory over 5A’s Ralston Valley. The 16-5 win ended a 3-game losing streak for Conifer, a 4A state quarterfinalist last season.

  • Bears springing into action...

    By Christie Greene

    Last fall, as the days grew shorter and the sun moved lower in the sky, the bears listened to their instincts and began eating, really eating, up to 20,000 calories a day. As their foods sources dwindled and the temperatures began to sink, they ambled into the woods to make a den.

    In the meantime, we adjusted our clocks, made soup and readied the snowblowers. While we settled in front of the fire with a book, the thick-coated, fat-laden bruins curled up inside cozy dens and began living off their acquired fat stores. 

  • Evergreen tops Eagle Valley in...

    LAKEWOOD — For the fourth consecutive game, the Evergreen baseball team eclipsed the 10-run mark, and for the fourth consecutive game, the Cougars were victorious.

    Powered by 14 hits, Evergreen defeated Eagle Valley 15-0 Saturday afternoon at All-Star Park.

  • Lobos drop third straight

    GOLDEN — After winning its season opener, the Conifer baseball team dropped its third-straight game in a 10-0 loss to Golden on Thursday night.

    Trailing 1-0 entering the bottom half of the third inning, Golden delivered the dagger as Noah Mitchell hit a grand slam to give Golden a 6-0 lead.

    Six Lobos were able to record a hit, but that would be all the momentum Conifer could muster.

  • Aqua Cougars win big in Arvada

    Two meets against three Jeffco opponents to start the 2017 boys swimming season, and Evergreen coach Damon Garrison has no idea where his team stands in league competition.
