  • Songs of spring heard in the...

    Reprinted from March 15, 2006

     

    March came in like a lamb, but it was a very frisky one. The day was warm, blue and spring-like, but that little lamb kicked up its heels, creating a considerable amount of wind. Since then, March has been as fickle as usual, with warm near-70-degree days spiced with spring snow and typical wind.

  • Eighth-grader McCarty dusting...

    DENVER — There’s no flashy ring jacket. Just a red mouthpiece, a little shadow boxing on the side and a picture of concentration. That’s Garrett McCarty.

    A 13-year-old Evergreen Middle School seventh-grader, McCarty hasn’t always emphasized those characteristics. He boxed for two years, in the fourth and fifth grade, before he just stopped for a variety of reasons. He, as Clear Creek boxing coach Beau Campbell said, forgot just how close the boxing community truly is.

  • Finches flock to the tundra

    Reprinted from March 6, 2008

     

    For many years when winter visitors to Colorado called us to inquire about where they could see rosy-finches, we would either take them or send them to the top of Squaw Mountain to visit the Swanlunds.

    When we were faced with this request recently, we didn’t know a really “sure spot” to send these visitors.

  • Graebel, Cougars conquer slalom

    It’s not that Kirk Petrik doesn’t have confidence in the Evergreen Cougars ski team. He does. But what it was able to accomplish Feb. 24-25 as Aspen Highlands during the 2011 state skiing championships, well, that was unexpected.

  • Cougars' upset of Indians...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — The No. 6 seed in the state isn’t supposed to struggle to beat the No. 27 seed, but they Cheyenne Mountain Lady Indians’ girls basketball team knew they were in for a tough one against Evergreen.

    In fact, the Lady Cougars played even with the bigger and deeper Lady Indians for a while. And even though they trailed 37-32 at the half, they quickly tied the game at 37 early in the third quarter.

  • Gorrell, foul trouble irk EHS

    CONIFER — Ali Meyers wasn’t sure about playing Emily Elmgreen in such a situation. But the freshman guard rose to the occasion. So did starter Taylor Rauch and the rest of Evergreen’s defense.

  • Unfortunate head injury ends Kay...

    DENVER — Jake Kay knows all too well what injuries can do to you. It was a shoulder injury that cut short his freshman season, keeping him from reaching the 4A state tournament. But the Evergreen 103-pound sophomore wasn’t about to let that happen again.

    And he didn’t.

  • Illness, psyche can’t keep...

    DENVER — His voice is barely vocal. He could barely stand up much less wrestle more than a week ago. And the lingering effects of a week-long flu could still be felt when Josh Karnath talked. But it didn’t stop the Evergreen wrestler from competing at the 4A state wrestling tournament last week.
