  • Cougars’ pressure too much for...

    Hailey Newhall had a double-double to lead the Evergreen Lady Cougars to a 65-32 rout of Montbello in both teams’ season opener on Dec. 3 at Evergreen High School.
    The Lady Cougars avenged last year’s 50-49 loss at Montbello by applying full-court pressure in the first half that resulted in a 40-16 halftime lead. Evergreen was set to open the season two nights earlier vs. George Washington, but that game was rescheduled for Dec. 6 due to weather. Results weren’t available at presstime.

  • Evergreen's Kay, Karnath...

    CONIFER — To say that Don Fuller was a little wet behind the ears when it came to wrestling last season would probably be accurate. And to say that he’s grown from that experience by leaps and bounds is definitely accurate.

  • Cougar riding in the fast Lane

    For Andre Lane, playing basketball is something that he loves to do. It’s his passion.
    Sure the Evergreen junior is a three-sport star, playing tennis in the fall and running track in the spring, but basketball is his true calling. And he knows it.
    “This is definitely my favorite sport by far,” the modest 6-foot small forward said.
    That’s obvious by Lane’s play on the floor. As a sophomore last season, Lane displayed that passion with his play, and he certainly has his supporters.

  • Invasion of the destructive...

    Editor’s Note: Sylvia’s column will reappear next week. This column is reprinted from Dec. 10, 2008.

    Christmas is not far away, and as we do our shopping and baking, our thoughts turn to Christmas decorations. In England and in our Eastern states, mistletoe is an important part of Christmas. The mistletoe common throughout the South grows mainly on oaks. It forms huge clumps or balls, and the whole plant generally is cut from the tree. The sprigs with the white berries are usually sold for Christmas decorating.

  • Evergreen product Haebe wins D-...

    Ryan Haebe had never won a collegiate cross country race before. But now not only did he score his first career win, taking home the Division II national championship on Nov. 19 at Plantes Ferry Athletic Complex in Spokane, Wash., his school, Western State, won its first team championship since 2005 to boot.

  • Buckwalter nabs all-state honors

    Evergreen senior volleyball player Brenna Buckwalter was recently selected to play in both the Colorado Coaches of Girls Sports all-state volleyball game and the Colorado High School Coaches Association all-star game.
    The CCGS game, in which the 4A Blue team was coached by Evergreen’s Katie Ryan, was played Nov. 20 at Arvada West High School. Unfortunately, Buckwalter was unavailable to play due to family commitments. The CHSCA games will be played June 7-9, 2012 at Adams State College in Alamosa.

  • Body of steel

    For Glenn Vogel, it was a unique sensation. There was his son, 6-foot-2, 220-pound Cameron, standing on the stage at the Mr. Teen Colorado bodybuilding competition in Denver and Glenn’s long-time training partner Mondre Van Der Lee noted the irony of it all.
