  • Town Race welcomes all in...

    People rang cowbells and cheered wildly at the Lake House as runners crossed the finish line in the Evergreen Town Race on Sunday.

    The 5- and 10K races were a beacon for Colorado’s elite runners, as well as for those who just enjoy running for fun, to come and sprint to the finish.

  • Evergreen juniors may be class...

    Kyle Peterson may be the face of the foursome. After all, as a sophomore in 2011, he shot a 1-over-par 145 at Windsor's Pelican Lakes Golf Course to tie for seventh at the 4A boys golf state championship.

  • EHS boys golf tryouts set for...

    The Evergreen High School boys golf team will be holding tryouts Aug. 6-7 at Deer Creek Golf Club in Littleton and Indian Tree Golf Course in Arvada, respectively.
    Players need to shoot a 95 or better at Deer Creek to be invited back for Day 2 unless otherwise notified by coaches.
    The top four players after both days will make the team with another six to eight players to be selected.
    If you have questions, contact coach Mike Kuzava at 303-887-4736 or via e-mail at mkuzava@jeffco.k12.co.com. For more information, visit www.ehscougarsgolf.com.

  • Paddleboarding hits the Rockies

    John (J.B.) Bridenbaugh thought he was too late. His friends said he was too early, but from the looks of it his timing is just right.
    J.B., 54, and his wife Nancy, 50, of Bow Mar, opened Altitude Paddleboards, an unassuming paddleboard shop in downtown Littleton on June 8. Although it’s a relatively new sport to Colorado, the Bridenbaughs knew that they had to do something to help build a paddleboarding community.

  • Cougars leave room to improve

    ARVADA — For Evergreen baseball coach Matt Erholtz, the Cougars’ 11-3 loss to top-seeded Mountain Range on July 28 at Bart Mapps Field at Pomona High School was what it was.
    It represented what the summer season was as a whole for EHS in some ways. There were some positives, but there were some negatives as well. That’s why the first-year varsity head coach sees room for improvement after his team was bounced from the seven-team double-elimination North Metro League tournament.

  • Gymnast Pettitt-Kenney turning...

    She may only be 11 years old, but there’s little doubt that Teresa Pettitt-Kenney is grounded for her age. The petite adolescent is supremely structured. She likes having an organized list of things to do, especially when it comes to school work.
    “I like how you just turn the computer on and see what you have to do. I know what I have to do to get that done. I feel it’s less stressful,” Teresa said. “It’s easier for me.”

  • Staunton State Park prepares to...

    Staunton State Park is on track to open to the public in October, as volunteer recruitment, partner development and construction progress.

    A firm date for the opening of Colorado’s newest state park — on 3,500 acres north of Shaffers Crossing — will be set sometime in August, said park manager Jennifer Marten.

    Community partners and volunteers

    The Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife hosted two open houses in April to recruit volunteers to help build and maintain the park and partners to raise money for it.

  • Cormorants at Evergreen Lake a...

    One of the most prominent and therefore most asked-about bird at Evergreen Lake is the double-crested cormorant. This big bird often is seen sitting on the dam or on the sandbar that accumulates at the inlet. They are big black birds that people cannot fail to see, especially when they have their wings spread out to dry.

  • Visiting Chargers steal...

    The Evergreen Cougars dropped a home doubleheader to the the Chatfield Chargers on July 22, losing 7-4 and 11-10.
    In Game 1, Evergreen got off to an early lead, scoring all of its runs in the first inning. But fortune smiled on Chatfield in the fourth inning when it scored three runs — one of which on a balk by Evergreen sophomore pitcher Jackson Grise.
    After a brief rain delay in the second inning of Game 2, Chatfield was up to bat with the Cougars leading 6-4.

  • Courage Classic ride is all...

    Michael Elmquist was looking for a team. For two years the Houston, Texas, resident had ridden in the Courage Classic, a three-day, 157-mile bike ride through Summit County to raise funds for Children’s Hospital Colorado. But he was looking to join a group. A specific team — the Slalom Gates Rubber Duckies.
    Elmquist e-mailed ride organizers to get him on the team, but team captain Robert Meek never received the notification. Elmquist figured he would come up to Colorado and visit his sister’s in-laws. He would fly it by ear in his quest to find a team.
