  • 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.

  • House wrens working their way...

    The little brown house wren has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. They always nested in a box in our yard on the farm where I grew up, and they were common nesting birds in most every yard in the village.

  • Gifted Tenney gets taste of state

    Madison Tenney is a naturally-gifted athlete, says Evergreen girls golf coach Mike Kuzava. That in itself had a lot to do with the Evergreen sophomore qualifying for the 2012 4A state girls golf championship.

  • Rare Lewis’ woodpecker sighted...

    May has had its usual fling of one last snowstorm. Fortunately, this year it was just about four inches, not the four feet it brought us a few years ago. Now that it has succeeded in ruining Mother’s Day for a good many people, it seems to be clearing up and the coming week’s forecast looks like we will be having not just spring, but summer weather.
