  • Postseason unfamiliar to Cougars

    Nobody, I mean nobody, saw this coming. After all Evergreen was 3-7 in 2009. For the Cougars, even with all the experience returning, to make the playoffs in 2010 was, in head coach Rob Molholm’s words, magical.

  • Evergreen keeper staying near...

    Not that it matters now, but Matt Hoff does have a passport.

    It would’ve come in handy had the Evergreen senior lacrosse goalkeeper chose to sign his letter of intent to play collegiately at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. 

    It was certainly in the running. But, instead, he chose to stay a little closer to home, signing on with Mesa State in Grand Junction on Nov. 17 — the final day of the early signing period.

  • Jeepers, brown creepers are here

    Reprinted from Nov. 19, 2008

    Many people have asked recently about a little brown mottled bird with a white breast and a curved beak that they have seen circling around the trunks of their trees.

    The bird is a brown creeper, a fairly common resident in our woodlands. Why they have become so obvious recently probably has several causes.

  • Cougars’ magical year comes to...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — In the words of head coach Rob Molholm, 2010 was a magical season as his Evergreen Cougars’ football team rebounded from a 3-7 record in 2009 to go 8-2 in the regular season and reach the 3A state playoffs for the first time since 2004.

    But like 2004, the first round would be as far as the Cougars would make it as they fell to Vista Ridge, 26-10, on Nov. 13 at Sand Creek High School.

  • Conifer trio turns attention...

    Ashley Phelps and Molly Walton had a similar path in mind. It’s not that they don’t mind Colorado, but the Conifer seniors had warmer pastures in mind for their immediate future. Add in Allison Gorrell and the Lobos trio all signed on to continue their athletic careers in college.

    On the first day of the early signing period, Phelps, Walton and Gorrell made official their quest to further their athletic careers at the next level.

  • Squirrels, catbirds are among...

    There has been very little new at the feeder this week. This is because it is empty most of the time. The maintenance man here at Elk Run is very kind and he tries to keep it up and filled. However, some critter or critters seem to knock it down as fast as he can put it up. Since I hope to be going home in about 10 days, it is not worth the expense of an elaborate pulley system, so I must give up even though the birds bring me much joy.

  • Evergreen girls bring home 2nd

    AURORA — No, Bryn Haebe didn’t win the 4A state cross country championship. She didn’t make Top 15, just missing that cut. But what the Evergreen senior did was lead a pack of Lady Cougars who showed that their team as a whole is a bigger deal than one individual runner.

    The Jeffco League and regional champion Cougars bunched together to give Evergreen its highest finish in 4A and its highest overall since the school finished second in the state as a 5A school in 1991.

  • Cougars squeeze out win

    The Evergreen Cougars knew they got a tough draw when they had to face Centaurus in the first round of the 4A state boys soccer playoffs. But the Cougars were up for the challenge, prevailing 1-0 at Evergreen High School on Oct. 27.

    The Warriors (8-6-2) were in the bottom half of the bracket, but had beaten some good teams and Cougars coach Peter Jeans knew that.

  • Cougars tune up for Conifer with...

    WATKINS — Trent Tosetti rushed for two touchdowns, and Quinn O’Neill and Jake Hutcherson added a score each as the Evergreen Cougars won their fourth straight game, 32-0 over Ridge View Academy on Oct. 30.

    The Cougars (7-2, 4-1 3A Metro South) rushed for 355 yards. The loss dropped Ridge View Academy to 2-7 overall, 1-4 in league play.
