  • Cougars keep even keel, win...

    ARVADA — It was only the first hole, but Sam Theil didn’t do himself any favors. The Evergreen senior co-captain, starting on No. 18 at the Jefferson Academy Invitational on Aug. 16, fired a double bogey. It was a tough start for a player who struggles more with golf’s mental game than with the physical side.

  • Berggren has passion for game of...

    It’s not like Julia Berggren, then 6 years old, didn’t like gymnastics. She loved it. So did her brother, Victor. For their parents, Erik and Karin, both avid outdoor athletes in their native Sweden, it wasn’t their cup of tea. So they encouraged, or as Erik would say tricked, them into trying other sports for a couple of months just to see if they’d like something else.

  • Deer Creek Challenge ride...

    Race director Pat Downing, in an e-mail sent to participants last week, announced that the Deer Creek Challenge bicycle ride, scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 19, has been canceled because of low registration numbers.

  • Migrating nighthawks fill the...

    There is a small order of birds known as goatsuckers. The scientific name is the Caprimulgiformes, which comes from the Latin Caprimulgus, a milker of goats and forma or form.

  • Crippler lives up to its name

    Few have shed the blood, sweat and tears required to claim a Rocky Mountain Cycling Club (RMCC) Triple Crown title to their list of achievements, but on Aug. 11 five people did just that when they finished the inaugural Cripple Creek Crippler Bike Race, bringing the total number of 2012 Triple Crown achievers to 16.

  • Barn swallows are another...

    Two weeks ago, I wrote about the tree and violet-green swallows that nest in this area. They are the swallows that have dark blue-black backs and white under parts as they flash by.

  • 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.

    He even shot a 2-under 70 on the first day of the two-day competition, including five birdies. So he more than proved his worth.

  • 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.
