  • Cougars prep for playoffs with...

    The Evergreen Cougars decided to save their best for last. They played their best game in their final home game of the regular season, beating the 2010 Jefferson County 4A league champion Green Mountain Rams, 25-21, 19-25, 25-19, 25-21 on Oct. 21.

    The Cougars’ win ruined what was a perfect season in the league for the Rams (17-2, 9-1), who looked overmatched most of the game, only narrowly taking Game 2 and trailing throughout the rest of the games.

  • Roundup: Chart, Kerry receive 4A...

    Evergreen’s No. 1 singles player Nate Chart and head coach Bruce Kerry were named the boys tennis MVP and coach of the year for 2010 by the 4A Jeffco League.

    Chart was one of five players to be named first-team, all-conference, joined by Stephen Hardy (No. 2 singles), Brian Repko (No. 3 singles) and the team of Cameron Sadler and Garrett Smith (No. 3 doubles).  The No. 4 doubles team of Steve Jensen and Brad Lindsay were named second-team, all-conference.

  • Cougars running toward postseason

    Rob Molholm wasn’t surprised that the Evergreen Cougars ran the ball so effectively. He wasn’t surprised that his team even defeated previously unbeaten Englewood. But the 45-13 score that resulted in the Cougars’ sixth win of the season, well, that was a little shocking. Almost as much as the Gatorade bath the head coach took in the post game.

  • Evergreen rules cross country...

    LITTLETON — It’s not like Evergreen needed to strike fear in the competition or build on its own confidence any more than it has already this season, but the Cougars’ cross country team did so anyway at the 4A Jeffco League championships on Oct. 15 at Clement Park.

  • Cougars headed to state

    Just how much does Evergreen head softball coach Scott Haebe believe in Breeze Phillips? He didn’t pitch her in the first game of the 4A Region 5 softball tournament on Oct. 16 at Four Diamonds Complex in Colorado Springs. But there’s a method to his madness.

  • Roundup: Jensen, Lindsay team up...

    PUEBLO — Steve Jensen and Brad Lindsay did something Oct. 16 that they weren’t able to do a week earlier at the 4A Region 1 tennis tournament — that’s beat Colorado Academy’s No. 4 doubles team.

    The 7-6, 7-6 win at the 4A state championship at Pueblo City Park sewed up third place for the Evergreen duo, the only members of the Cougars to medal at this year’s meet.

  • Remember, raccoons are wild...

    Well, I’ve done it again. Once a klutz, always a klutz. Seems like every few years, lately, I have to go tumbling around, either spraining or breaking something.

    This time it’s a broken right wrist. How these things happen so quickly amazes me, but of course, if you had time to think about it, they wouldn’t happen.

  • Take advantage of the changing...

    From Oct. 1, 2008

     

    It is a warm “summer” day, even if fall has arrived. While out on the patio enjoying the warm temperature, I noticed several patches of pine resin that were gathering the fallen scales of pine cones in their viscous, gooey puddles.

  • Cougars’ miscues prove to be...

    DENVER — The Evergreen Cougars’ volleyball team had the talent to beat D’Evelyn in their house on Oct. 7, but may have lacked the experience necessary as it fell to the host Jaguars in four sets, 25-16, 19-25, 25-17, 25-23.

    The Cougars, who only play two seniors, had opportunities to win, especially in the fourth set, as they led 20-16. But they let it slip away as the Jaguars won nine of the next 12 points to seal the match.

  • Evergreen takes 2nd at tennis...

    DENVER — Evergreen’s boys tennis team qualified five of its seven slots for the Oct. 14-16 4A state tennis championship with a second-place finish at the Region 1 tournament on Oct. 8 at Colorado Academy.
    Advancing to state, set for Oct 14-16 in Pueblo, with a second-place finish were Nate Chart (No. 1 singles), Stephen Hardy (No. 2 singles), Bryan Repko (No. 3 singles), Cameron Sadler and Garrett Smith (No. 3 doubles) and Steve Jensen and Brad Lindsay (No. 4 doubles).
