  • Rabbits, hares not as abundant,...

    Winter is always a good time to look for rabbit tracks in the snow. There are two rabbits that can be seen in this area and a third that can be seen farther afield in Colorado.

  • Malazdrewicz overcomes Ralston...

    ARVADA — Everywhere Lexie Malazdrewicz looked there was a Ralston Valley swimmer. Two to her right, two to her left at Meyers Pool on Jan. 21. It was, as the Mustangs’ Maddie Myers proclaimed prior to the 500-yard freestyle finals, an Evergreen Oreo.
    “We talked about that. (Maddie) was joking around that it was going to be a lot of Ralston Valley people and one Evergreen in the middle. Then I looked at her and it actually was,” Malazdrewicz said.

  • Cougars exorcise Demons

    Erin Dobey scored 16 points, going 6-of-11 from the field, and Hailey Newhall added 14 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Evergreen Lady Cougars past visiting Golden 46-38 on Jan. 20 at Evergreen High School.
    Evergreen (9-6, 4-2 4A Jeffco League) led most of the game, holding the Lady Demons to just three points in the first quarter by keeping them off guard with their full-court press. Their dominance was short-lived, however, and the game wasn’t decided until the fourth quarter when the Lady Cougars were able to pull away.

  • Cougars fend off Demons

    Free throws proved to be the difference on Jan. 20 as host Evergreen edged rival Golden 53-49.
    The Cougars only went to the line once in the first three quarters, but ultimately the charity stripe proved to be the deciding factor. Up by two points with seven seconds left, senior Konnor Propst was fouled. Coach Scott Haebe opted to leave the rest of his team on the visiting side of the court while Propst took his shots as the Golden crowd attempted to distract him.

  • Insect-eating brown creepers...

    One of the most interesting winter birds found in our area is the little brown creeper. This delightful little bird is actually a permanent resident that lives in the area year-round.

    While they are not abundant, they are regularly found in their preferred habitat above 7,000 feet to timberline. The brown creeper is a rather solitary bird during much of the year. During the nesting season, a pair tends to stay by themselves in their territory, keeping their nest well hidden and not associating much with other birds or man.

  • Lemon leads EHS to victory

    Rae Lemon took first place in a time of 1 minute, 20.65 seconds and Evergreen’s ski team finished with 174 points to edge Nederland in the girls slalom at Loveland Ski Area on Jan. 13.
    Gillian Long took third in 1:33.53 and Ellie Petrik was fifth in 1:37.13.
    Jake Bender’s second-place finish in the boys race in 1:21.65 helped Evergreen take first place with 169 points.

  • Cougars take fast Lane to top...

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen head boys basketball coach Scott Haebe knows what kind of basketball player he has in Andre Lane. So simply advising the Cougars junior to shoot the ball when he has the opportunity would seem obvious.
    Besides, as evidence of Lane’s game-high 21 points in a 56-44 win at Green Mountain on Jan. 13, good things tend to happen when he lets the ball fly.
