  • Evergreen baseball shuts down...

    LAKEWOOD — Hitting can be contagious when it comes to high school baseball, and the Evergreen Cougars utilized that strategy to win out during their first league game at Green Mountain on April 9.

    From start to finish, the Cougars put on a clinic as they defeated the Rams 16-5. The game ended after six innings after the mercy rule was implemented.

    STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — There were chances, Evergreen boy lacrosse coach Jay Eggar said on Saturday, letting  loose a sigh as the crowd and players cleared out from Gardner Field on Saturday.

    There had been chances all week, but those slipped away, and so did Saturday’s.

    The Cougars couldn’t slow Steamboat Springs in the fourth quarter, and a tight game slipped away. Evergreen lost on the road against the Sailors, 10-2.

  • Cougar tennis nearly shuts out...

    LAKEWOOD — So far, the 2019 season has not been kind to the foothills high school tennis teams, but Evergreen and Conifer are making the best of what little court time they’ve seen this year.

    On Friday at Lakewood Park, the Cougars outlasted the Lobos as they won in commanding fashion, 6-1.

    Of the six classifications that competed (Conifer defaulted in No. 1 singles), the Lobos’ only victory came from sophomore Ava Dalton at No. 3 singles, who defeated Evergreen’s Alexa Endsley 6-2, 6-2.

  • Conifer grad Payer prepping for...

    Brandon Payer, a standout at Colorado State University-Pueblo and a Conifer High School graduate, might soon be headed to the NFL.

    With the draft April 25-27, the inside linebacker and Pine native was recently invited to the Denver Broncos pro day training camp, where he showcased his skills for the local professional team’s coaches and staff.

  • Cougar girls soccer defeats...

    CONIFER — The Evergreen girls soccer team may have been favored to win heading into its April 2 game at Conifer High, but the Lobos sure didn’t play like it.

    After coming out hot on the pitch, Conifer earned the early 2-0 advantage over its mountain foes, but Evergreen coach Peter Jeans and the rest of the Cougars were playing the long game. Senior Luisa Weiner netted the equalizer with 1:44 left in regulation, and then she played hero for her team when she sunk the golden goal in a sudden-death overtime, earning the Cougars a 3-2 victory.

  • Husky baseball falls to Clear...

    EVERGREEN — Platte Canyon baseball’s Saturday game at Clear Creek may not have gone the way it wanted, but it saw some positives the team can lean on as the 2019 season gets into full swing.

    At their rival’s home field, the Huskies fell to the Golddiggers 15-1 after just four and a half innings. Their bats couldn’t keep up with Clear Creek nor the hot pitching from Golddigger ace Reese Onago.

  • Evergreen’s Urbas sinks an eagle...

    BROOMFIELD — The season may still be young for girls golf, but Evergreen is already getting off to a great start.

    At the Broadlands Golf Course on April 3, the Cougars finished second in 4A of the 10 teams in attendance. Their high placement with a collective 390 score was bolstered by the stellar performance of senior Kate Lisle, who finished second with 88 strokes on the par-72 course.

  • Conifer girls lax takes out...

    LAKEWOOD — Conifer girls lacrosse cannot be stopped.

    In starting out the 2019 season with a stellar 8-0 record, the Lobo girls added to their resume on Thursday when they faced a lacrosse giant in Columbine and won 20-14. It was one of the closest games they’ve had all season.

  • Chatfield girls lax disrupts...

    LAKEWOOD — The Chatfield girls lacrosse team wasn’t messing around when it came to play against Evergreen on Thursday.

    At Trailblazer Stadium, the Chargers took the early lead and shook off the offensive drive from the Cougars, eventually winning 15-6. It was Evergreen’s first loss of the season and Chatfield’s fourth win.

  • Conifer baseball spends spring...

    When it comes to Conifer baseball, springtime can be the most unforgiving season. The team rarely gets the chance to practice outdoors given adverse field conditions at 8,277 feet.

    That’s why, every year, head coach Justin DeBerry leads the Lobos on a spring break expedition to Florida to practice and play. This year was no different.

    Last week, the Lobos went to Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, where the team got some reps on the field. That’s something they haven’t been able to do in Colorado yet other than during games.
