  • Conifer softball wards off the...

    EVERGREEN — Not many teams have given Conifer softball a run for its money this year.

    And after last year’s 20-9 victory over Evergreen, the Lobos didn’t really expect the Cougars to bring their A-game.

    But they did.

    After going down early on their home field on Sept. 12, the Cougars honed in on their offense mid-game, even though it wasn’t enough in the end. The No. 6 Lobos (per Monday’s CHSAANow.com poll) won 8-4.

  • Evergreen squeaks out victory at...

    WHEAT RIDGE — The Evergreen tennis team is off to a hot start.

    Following a 4-3 victory against Wheat Ridge at Everitt Middle School on Thursday and a subsequent loss at Steamboat Springs, the Cougars sat at 4-2 on the season.

    Much of that talent comes from freshmen, a far cry from the norm in varsity sports.

    GLENWOOD SPRINGS — On a warm Friday evening that felt more like summer than fall, the Glenwood Springs Demons took care of their football business by defeating the Conifer Lobos 41-20 to garner the first win of the 2018 football season.

     “I told the kids on Monday that I just wanted to hear them sing that Demon fight song,” said head coach Pat Engle following the game. “I got to hear the fight song tonight. This is a special place to coach football.”

  • Platte Canyon girls XC wins...

    EVERGREEN — The weather and course conditions may not have been ideal on Sept. 11, but that didn’t stop the Platte Canyon girls cross country team from blowing away the competition.

    During the Golddigger invite at Clear Creek High School, the lady Huskies scored a 28 through the top four finishers and won. The closest team, Middle Park, earned a 37.

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen’s boys golf team clinched the Class 4A Jeffco team conference title and the individual medalist crown on Thursday at Fox Hollow Golf Course at the final regular-season tournament of the season.

    The Cougars, the 4A state team runner-up last year, won five of six league tournaments this season in cruising to the team title.

  • Evergreen football upsets Mead

    By Michael Kelly

    EVERGREEN — When Mead’s first field-goal try was short and wide, the Evergreen football fans went crazy and the bench started to celebrate.

    But a technical issue with the clock gave the Mavericks another chance. Then another. Like the movie “Groundhog Day,” the Cougars had to replay the ending repeatedly.

  • Platte Canyon football hangs on...

    BAILEY — After a tough opening-week loss to Buena Vista the week before, the Platte Canyon Huskies bounced back in a big way this past Saturday. 

    In a back-and-forth contest that saw both teams fighting for every yard, the Huskies came away with the 12-0 victory over the Wiggins Tigers. Although the Huskies defense pitched a shutout, it looked as if it was going to be in a hole early on.

  • Evergreen defeats Conifer after...

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

    But, in contrast to last year’s matchup between the two schools, the Lobos came out swinging and gave the Cougars a run for their money. In the end, however, the Cougars won in three sets to put their rivals away.

  • EHS gymnastics earns 3rd at...

    LITTLETON — Evergreen may have been one of the smallest teams at Columbine’s big 10-team meet on Saturday, but that didn’t stop the Cougars from giving it their all and making some noise in the competition.

    With 162.100 points, the Cougars took third place behind Pomona (179.750) and Chatfield (164.575). Senior Jackie Fritsche led the charge with a 33.025 all-around score, placing third behind two Pomona gymnasts.

  • Graziano, Cougars come out...

    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.
