  • Evergreen swim team dives into 2019 season

    On Friday at the Ridge Rec Center, the Evergreen freshman finished fifth in the 1-meter dive with a score of 146.55. It was the first meet of his career and the first meet of the year for Evergreen.

  • Conifer baseball gearing up for an exciting season

    The 2019 baseball season hasn’t had the greatest start, but Conifer is hoping it can overcome early setbacks to have a successful year.

    The Lobos were supposed to begin their campaign last week at Jefferson Academy, but the game was canceled due to snowy field conditions. Up to and including that point, the team hadn’t seen any field time in the spring season because of their own field-condition woes. Their first game now is scheduled for Saturday at home at 1 p.m. With the impending snowstorm this week, that doesn’t look promising either.
