  • Evergreen’s Chase rowing right...

    Kendall Chase looks back at the photos taken two years ago at the University of California-Berkley rowing camp and it’s downright atrocious. At least in her mind.
    “I was really bad,” Chase said.
    But, oh, how things have changed since 2010.

  • Evergreen Rodeo Notebook:...

    Tim Shirley’s fingerprints were all over the Evergreen Rodeo on June 17. The only problem with that for the 30-year-old Bailey resident was that they weren’t on what he’s become best known for the past 12 years.
    Shirley, a 2001 Colorado Pro Rodeo Association bareback champion, was scratched from this year’s bareback riding competition after doctors recommended that he didn’t ride due to a history of concussions. He’d ridden in every Evergreen Rodeo since getting his Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association card.

  • Living the cowboy life

    Make no bones about it, Zilla Lapp is a big man. His girth is what initially drove the burly cowboy into the sport of rodeo in the first place. He was told that he was too big to ride. So Lapp set out to prove his critics wrong.
    “My grandpa’s grandpa used to do it. I’m trying to keep the dream alive,” Lapp said. “Cowboys are a dying breed.”

  • Three basic rules to feed...

    Although many species of bird return to nest in this area at various times, the hummingbirds seem to be very regular in their arrival dates, and most everyone who lives here seems to agree that when the hummingbirds arrive, it is truly summer.
    Although they return at lower elevations a bit earlier than they do here, the broad-tailed hummingbirds that nest in our immediate area usually arrive between April 25 and April 27, and they have done so for close to the 50 years I have lived here.

  • 2011-12 Coach of the Year:...

    Gymnasts are notoriously perfectionist and hardworking. Evergreen head gymnastics coach Marnie Bello is no exception.
    Bello coached her team to the 4A state championship with a school-record 182 points in 2011, knocking off two-time defending champion Elizabeth in the process. The Lady Cougars did so by taking first-place in the vault and uneven bars. It was the school’s second state title since 2008.

  • 2011-12 Athlete of the Year:...

    Seventeen-year-old Lexie Malazdrewicz will tell you that she is “just a 17-year-old girl.” One that likes hanging out with her friends and going to the pool during the summer, but tanning is what Malazdrewicz does at the pool when she’s not setting records in the pool.
    For the past eight years, Malazdrewicz has been making waves in the swim world, setting records and capturing titles — both as a club and high school swimmer. But, according to her, she never sets out to shatter records. She just swims hard to beat her own time.

  • Q&A: Five questions with...

    Ryan Haebe had never won a collegiate cross country championship before winning the 2011 Division II national title. The former Evergreen High School standout and now Western State runner followed that up with a national steeplechase championship. The Canyon Courier catches up with Haebe and his growing collegiate accolades.

    1. Six months ago, you won the NCAA Division II national cross country championship. Your team was also a national title. What was that like to have such a highly-successful season?

  • ‘It’s all about having fun’ for...

    THORNTON — For spectators, swim meets can seem daunting. Especially when trying to decipher one swimmer from the next. After all they look the same with their team suits and caps.
    The trick is to find the one difference, such as goggles, or in the case of 10 year-old Faith Hellard, a smile as big and deep as the pool. Hellard swims year-round and summer league for the Evergreen Hurricanes.
