  • Cougars still sitting atop throne

    The paint was everywhere. Blue on her left side, yellow on her right. Her face, arms and leg were covered. It looked as if Samantha Skold was right out of the movie Braveheart.

    And her teammates even got in the act here and there.

    “I’m a trendsetter. They just follow me,” Skold joked.

  • Zuckerman, Theil learn from...

    Evergreen golfers Adam Zuckerman and Sam Theil struggled at the 4A boys state golf championships at The Club at Flying Horse in Colorado Springs on Oct. 4-5. Zuckerman shot a consistent 13-over 85 on both days to finish tied for 70th with a 170 total and Theil was one shot back at 171, tied for 72nd.

    But just being there was a big step.

    “I think they gained valuable experience,” Evergreen head coach Mike Kuzava said. “The course was really difficult.”

  • 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.

  • Cougars keeps scoreboard...

     Eighty-two points. Yes, 82.

    That’s what the Evergreen Cougars’ varsity football team put on the scoreboard in a old-fashion butt-kicking of Jefferson, 82-0, on Oct. 7 at Lakewood’s Trailblazer Stadium. The 82 points is believed to be a school record, said head coach Rob Molholm, though records weren’t available for confirmation.

  • Evergreen boys tennis takes 2nd...

    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).

  • Roundup: Evergreen softball...

    The Evergreen Cougars (11-8), seeded 19th, will play No. 14 seed Pueblo Central (15-4) at 10 a.m. on Oct. 16 at the 4A Region 5 tournament at Four Diamonds Sports Complex in Colorado Springs.

    The other match-up in the four-team regional pits third-seeded Lewis-Palmer (17-2) vs. No. 30 seed Vista Ridge (8-11), also at 10 a.m. The winners will play at 12:15 p.m. with a berth to the 4A state tournament at stake. The losers also play at 12:15, with the winner of that game to face the winner’s bracket loser at 2:30 p.m. for a second state tournament spot.

  • Zuckerman, Theil fall into the...

    Evergreen golfers Adam Zuckerman and Sam Theil struggled at the 4A boys state golf championships at The Club at Flying Horse in Colorado Springs on Oct. 4-5. Zuckerman shot a consistent 13-over 85 on both days to finish tied for 70th with a 170 total and Theil was one shot back at 171, tied for 72nd.

    John Ahern of D’Evelyn was the top medalist with a 7-under 137 and Valor Christian won the team title with a 433 total, 15 shots better than Cortez and D’Evelyn.

  • Cougars’ Hamilton captures...

    LITTLETON — Evergreen’s Jak Hamilton won the Division 2 boys race at the Dave Sanders Invitational at Clement Park on Oct. 1, and the girls team took top honors with three finishers in the top four.

    Hamilton won the boys race in a time of 16 minutes, 29 seconds, beating out Pomona’s Dezmin Rameriz by six seconds. Fellow Evergreen runners Jackson Sayler and Andre Lane finished in the top six, but Pomona placed six runners in the top 15 en route to team honors by three points over the Cougars.

  • Offensive-minded Cougars keep...

    CONIFER — The Conifer Lobos shouldn’t be offended if Evergreen comes off a little offensive. It’s just the Cougars’ style.

    On the soccer field, that is.

    The way Evergreen head coach Peter Jeans sees it is that if his Cougars can play a more offensive-style of game and play a ball-control attack then it only increases the likelihood his team will win. That’s exactly how Evergreen approached its Mountain Challenge Cup battle with the host Lobos on Sept. 30.

  • Cougars gymnasts look to improve...

    ARVADA — It wasn’t Evergreen’s best performance. Head coach Marnie Bello would tell you that. But there were numerous reasons for that.

    Mainly injuries, which have hampered the Cougars all season long, if not longer. Thus, the team’s 168.4-156.175 loss to Arvada West on Sept. 30 at Pomona High School didn’t serve as much of an indicator at what Evergreen is capable of doing. But, even still, the Cougars put their best foot forward and came away with some impressive performances.
