Today's Sports

  • Wrens arrive, making big noise...

    While out on the patio today, I was constantly serenaded by the boisterous song of a house wren.

    Later I noticed it was constantly busy carrying great mouthfuls of some stick-like material into a nest box. It is a strange nest box that a friend made some years ago and brought to me to try it out. It is supposed to attract swallows because the entrance hole is in the bottom of the box, but from the day I put it up, it has been used by house wrens every year.

  • Spinzig caps career with third...

     

    Christina Spinzig is the best golfer that Evergreen’s Mike Kuzava has ever coached in putting things together. Don’t take my word for it. Just look at the results.

  • Scott to continue playing career...

     

    While Christina Spinzig will continue her golfing career at Colorado State, she’s not the only Evergreen girls golfer who is continuing her playing days. Teammate Aslinn Scott has been offered a scholarship to play at Adams State in Alamosa.

    They are two of five varsity golfers for Evergreen who were named all-state academic golfers this past season.

  • Bascio makes career out of...

     

    If it really was her last hurrah, then Monica Bascio can go out with her head held high. Why not. By a lot of people’s accounts they’re surprised that she was even competing in the first place.

  • Native flax have come into bloom

    It seems that we have had our one day of spring, and now it is summer. At least I have been working in the garden a bit, and it has been really warm. Fortunately, I didn’t trust the weather, so I didn’t put out the bedding plants I had purchased.

    Instead, I have been carrying them in and out every day so they haven’t gotten too pale and leggy or frozen, so I think tomorrow will be the day when they actually go into the garden.

  • Prouty, Cougars show resiliency...

     

    LAKEWOOD — The anguish Nat Prouty felt was punishment enough. Just 24 hours earlier, the Evergreen sprinter made a mistake that cost him and his teammates a medal at the very least, if not a potential state championship.

  • O’Brien, 4x800 relay...

     

    LAKEWOOD — Maura O’Brien barely had time to look at the runners in front of her because of the ones nipping at her heels. But maybe that was a good thing.

  • Holland takes 12th at state in...

    LOVELAND — Freshman Ben Holland, an Evergreen High student, placed 12th in the 100 backstroke, while Conifer’s boys swimming team had three top-15 finishes in relays at the 4A state championship May 22 at the Mountain Viee Aquatic Center.

    The 400 freestyle squad finished ninth, the 200 medley team took 10th, and the 200 freestyle was 15th.

  • Wet weather may bring new birds...

    The snow falls in big fat globs of collected flakes. Wet and sticky, it is collecting rapidly on trees, shrubs and what few perennial herbaceous plants have had the nerve to put forth new shoots already.

    It is May, and one would expect to see May flowers blooming, but alas, they are not. At least they are not blooming in any numbers. This is our seventh month of winter, and I am not happy to see more snow falling. However, such weather is expected in springtime Colorado where cold arctic air bumps into warm Gulf Coast air fairly regularly.

  • Evergreen track team shattering...

     

          Bryn Haebe didn’t know why. Maybe it really was the running gods that told Rob Wright to alter what up to this point had been a pretty successful season for Evergreen High School’s girls 4x800 relay team.
