  • Journey for four EHS tennis...

    By Anthony Sandstrom

    PUEBLO — The Evergreen girls tennis team may have found itself at the 4A girls tennis state tournament at Pueblo City Park Thursday, but it felt a bit like a fancy dual against Durango.

    The Evergreen state qualifiers — No. 1-singles player Zoe Love, Alexa Endsley at No. 2 singles, and the No. 1 doubles team of Saphie Potts and Jen Lawrence — each dropped first-round matches to Durango, prematurely ending the Cougars’ showing at the state tournament.

    LAKEWOOD — The Evergreen and Wheat Ridge girls soccer teams had been here before.

    The Class 4A Jeffco League teams faced off in the Class 4A state tournament quarterfinals a year ago with Evergreen hanging on to a 2-1 victory that led to an eventual state runner-up finish. The two conference rivals met up again in the postseason on Saturday at Lakewood Memorial Field, this time in the second round.

  • Sailors sink Conifer boys

    By Joel Reichenberger

    STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Conifer High School boys lacrosse coach Dak Riecke said his team had studied Steamboat Springs on film, and when the Lobos and Sailors met Wednesday evening in Steamboat, they knew what to stop: the most skilled Sailors from curling around the back of the net to work in the alleys in front of the goal.

    “We talked about it all week,” Riecke said. “We saw it on film. We knew they’d run with that, but they ran it perfectly.”

  • At state, Conifer girls gain...

    For Conifer girls tennis, the Class 3A state tournament was a learning experience.

    The Lobos may have finished with zero points, but what they lacked in results, they more than made up for in experience.

    Of the four qualifiers — Hattie Dahlin and Ava Dalton at No. 1 doubles and Jessie Levesque-Etling and Marissa Rocconova at No. 2 doubles — none had ever played in a state match.

    None of them are not seniors, and Dalton is just a freshman.

  • Aspen boys finish off Evergreen

    By Austin Colbert

    ASPEN — The Aspen High School boys lacrosse team used a strong second-half push in the nightcap of Wednesday’s AHS playoff trifecta to beat visiting Evergreen, 10-5, in the first round of the Class 4A state tournament.

  • Evergreen girls lacrosse defeats...

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen girls lacrosse is having itself a great year.

    Not only is the team much improved from last year with a slew of youth talent, but it’s defeated teams it couldn’t have dreamed of a season ago.

    Those performances, along with an 11-7 decision over Conifer at Trailblazer Stadium on May 2, helped them get tantalizingly close to earning a spot in the state tournament.

    But no cigar.

  • Conifer baseball takes 4th at...

    While this season has not always been kind to the 9-10 Conifer baseball team, the Lobos were able to earn a fourth-place finish at the Colorado 7 tournament in Fort Morgan last week despite the rainy weather.

    After dropping a 12-2 decision to Fort Morgan on the first day, they bounced back to defeat Fort Lupton 12-8 and decimate Weld Central 13-0.

  • Evergreen baseball falters in...

    GOLDEN — The way the regular season ended, a second straight appearance in the 4A championship game should be the last thing on the minds of the Evergreen baseball team.

    The Cougars know the way they played down the stretch doesn’t even augur well for a return to the eight-team, double-elimination state finals.

  • Amy Bahl steps down as Evergreen...

    For the past six years, Evergreen girls basketball has been a state powerhouse, winning the state title two years in a row and playing in the title games three times.

    But that era, led by stellar head coach Amy Bahl, has come to an end. Bahl recently announced her resignation from the team, citing a third pregnancy as her reasoning behind the decision. She and her husband are expecting this November.

  • EHS names Conifer alum Jeff...

    Jeff Dolan has jumped to the other side of the fence.

    The 2007 Conifer High School graduate announced on Twitter Monday afternoon that he has been named the new boys basketball coach at Evergreen High School. Dolan, 29, replaces Scott Haebe, who stepped down last month. Haebe will be the head basketball coach at Clear Creek High School.
