  • Graebel, Cougars conquer slalom

    It’s not that Kirk Petrik doesn’t have confidence in the Evergreen Cougars ski team. He does. But what it was able to accomplish Feb. 24-25 as Aspen Highlands during the 2011 state skiing championships, well, that was unexpected.

  • Cougars' upset of Indians...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — The No. 6 seed in the state isn’t supposed to struggle to beat the No. 27 seed, but they Cheyenne Mountain Lady Indians’ girls basketball team knew they were in for a tough one against Evergreen.

    In fact, the Lady Cougars played even with the bigger and deeper Lady Indians for a while. And even though they trailed 37-32 at the half, they quickly tied the game at 37 early in the third quarter.

  • Gorrell, foul trouble irk EHS

    CONIFER — Ali Meyers wasn’t sure about playing Emily Elmgreen in such a situation. But the freshman guard rose to the occasion. So did starter Taylor Rauch and the rest of Evergreen’s defense.

  • Unfortunate head injury ends Kay...

    DENVER — Jake Kay knows all too well what injuries can do to you. It was a shoulder injury that cut short his freshman season, keeping him from reaching the 4A state tournament. But the Evergreen 103-pound sophomore wasn’t about to let that happen again.

    And he didn’t.

  • Illness, psyche can’t keep...

    DENVER — His voice is barely vocal. He could barely stand up much less wrestle more than a week ago. And the lingering effects of a week-long flu could still be felt when Josh Karnath talked. But it didn’t stop the Evergreen wrestler from competing at the 4A state wrestling tournament last week.

  • Special trees hold deep meaning...

    Deep winter is rather a quiet time in the out of doors in this area. Black or near black seems to be the predominant color. Even the endless forest seems to be more black than green against the white of winter snow.

    The bitter cold of early February brought a stark black-and-white panorama as cold and sterile as an operating room. However, color is present in small amounts, and the first warms days of March bring forth to welcome spring. The buds and bark of deciduous tree twigs are often quite brilliant and announce the coming of spring long before it finally arrives.

  • Cougars can't hold early...

    Konnor Propst and Andre Lane scored 17 points each, but it wasn't enough as Green Mountain bounced the Cougars from the championship bracket of the 4A Jeffco League tournament, 50-49, in overtime on Feb. 14.

    Trevor Van Tassel scored 14 points and Ryan Stephan added 13 for the Rams, who rallied from 17 points down at halftime to reach the semifinals.

     

    Evergreen dropped to 10-11 with the defeat.

  • Cougars’ defense sends team to...

    The layups weren’t falling. Neither were the free throws. It must’ve been a Monday game. But as Evergreen head coach Ali Meyers said, at least her team played defense.

    That was the Lady Cougars’ saving grace in a 38-30 home win over Green Mountain in the quarterfinals of the 4A Jeffco League tournament on Feb. 14. 

    “Thank God we played defense. We played defense really, really well,” Meyers said.

  • Malazdrewicz wins state

    LOVELAND — Lexie Malazdrewicz, although she felt pretty good, was a little tired. But you couldn’t tell that on Feb. 12 at the Mountain View Aquatics Center.

  • Cougars’ little man comes up big

    ELIZABETH — The excited look of a first-time state qualifier is hard to forget. Evergreen’s Jake Kay had that look.

    After a shoulder injury sidelined Kay for the last part of his freshman year, the sophomore was determined to make a run at state and trounced his 103-pound bracket at the 4A Region 1 wrestling tournament on Feb. 11-12 at Elizabeth High School to head to state in style.
