    CONIFER — When it comes to rivalry games, such as one like Evergreen and Conifer, it’s tough for one to stay within themselves. Emotions are high, the adrenaline rush is maddening. But Evergreen’s boys basketball team, clearly the better team, had to find a way to do so.

    It wasn’t that the first quarter was bad. Everyone just seemed to think it could have been better. Well, it got better quickly for the Evergreen boys basketball team on Jan. 11 in a 59-47 home win over Green Mountain.

  • Cougars conquer Jeffco Relays

    LAKEWOOD — Fifteen teams from all over Jeffco converged at Carmody Pool, a tiny pool not typically used for high school meets except for the occasional dual meet.

    But as soon as the relays started Jan. 14, the Evergreen Lady Cougars eased into the water and let the waves tell the rest of the story.

    “I’m close. I’m real close. My time will come. I’m getting close,” Kay said.
