  • Tie with Wheat Ridge leaves Lady...

    LAKEWOOD — A 2-2 double-overtime tie against Wheat Ridge left the Evergreen girls’ soccer team feeling a little raw and empty on April 13 at Lakewood Memorial Field. For nine years, the Lady Cougars (7-1-2, 4-0-1 4A Jeffco) have been unable to defeat Wheat Ridge, making the tie feel more like a loss than a draw.

  • Crews, Cougars thump Lobos

    Scott Crews had a goal and three assists, and host Evergreen had four players with two goals each in a 12-4 boys lacrosse victory over rival Conifer on April 13.
    The Cougars, off to the best start in school history, improved to 10-0 overall, 5-0 in the Foothills Conference following an 11-8 win over Golden on April 16. Conifer fell to 4-7, 1-4 in league play.

  • Tenney leads Lady Cougars charge

    LAKEWOOD — It wasn’t the way Madison Tenney wanted to start her round, but the Evergreen sophomore more than showed composure advanced for her years in closing it.
    Thinking she had to score better the Lady Cougars’ No. 1 girls golfer, after firing 4-over on the Par-4, 298-yard first hole, settled into a groove to finish with a 10-over 42 at The Homestead Golf Course on April 12.

    ARVADA

  • Sayler outruns field at Pasadena

    Evergreen junior Jackson Sayler ran a personal-best time of 4 minutes, 23.55 seconds to capture first place at the South Pasadena Tiger Invitational in Pasadena, Calif., on April 6.
    Sayler broke free from the pack on the final lap en route to shattering his previous one-mile mark by 12 seconds. His previous personal best of 4:33 was set earlier this year in Pocatello, Idaho.

  • Red-hot Cougars thump Chargers

    LAKEWOOD — One look at the Evergreen boys’ lacrosse team’s 8-0 record and it’s easy to see that they are having a red-hot season. So when they defeated the Chatfield Chargers 12-5 on April 4 at Trailblazer Stadium, the only thing that was shocking was that it was the first time the Cougars had beat the Chargers.

  • EHS finds rhythm to blank Conifer

    On the back of Katherine Hardy’s racket the word rythm is written. It is her motto to keep every tennis match going. And even though Evergreen’s No. 2 girls singles player lost some of that rhythm in her match with Conifer’s Kirsten Hafemen momentarily on April 5 she found enough of it when it mattered most.

  • Western red squirrels begin...

    March has been an interesting month with weather zig-zagging between record highs, record lows, exceptional spring-like weather along with exceptional drought with which came a serious forest fire near Conifer. All of this brought a great deal of uncertainty.
    April has already greeted us with a rain and a snowstorm, and we can’t help but wonder what else it will bring before the month is up. April has a reputation of being unable to make up its mind as to whether she will spring or put on her parka and dive back into winter.

  • Spring sports look ahead

    The Lady Cougars have given up just three goals this season behind 18 saves from freshman goalkeeper Natalie Ulfig.
