    EVERGREEN — The eighth-ranked Evergreen volleyball team wasn’t expecting Conifer to come into it game with high ferocity.

  • Evergreen boys golf wins Jeffco league tournament

    ARVADA — Evergreen golf has been rolling this season, and Friday’s Jeffco meet at the Indian Tree Golf Club was no different.

    With an overall score of 317, the Cougars placed first in the 4A competition, led by senior Nolan Miller and junior Clayton Whitton, who both shot a 78 on a par-70 course and tied for third in 4A.

    The course conditions, Whitton said, weren’t the best, and that contributed to a few of the Cougars’ struggles.

  • Conifer takes eighth at the tourney

    ARVADA — Conifer freshman Cade Rummell, who shot an 82 (11th) enjoyed the Indian Tree course and played it well.

    “(The course) was OK,” Rummell said. “It was fun. It wasn’t like it was too wet or too dry, too fast or really slow.”

    He was five strokes behind the team leader, senior Dakota Dolph (second), who beat out even Evergreen with a 77.

    “I performed pretty well,” Rummel said. “I wish I would have putted better, but I still played pretty good, so I’m happy.”

  • Graziano, Cougars come out firing on all cylinders

    CONIFER — By Nick Graziano’s account, his role is to help the Evergreen Cougars score as many goals as possible. The left-footed Evergreen junior did more than his fair share of that in the Cougars’ 7-0 season-opening win over rival Conifer on Aug. 28 at Lobo Field.

    Graziano, a midfielder/forward, scored four goals — three in the first half, including a penalty kick — as Evergreen continued its dominance against its longtime rival.
