  • Evergreen boys golf wins Jeffco...

    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...

    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.”

    Despite the loss, the Cougars kept their chins up and vowed to push forward.
    “I’m really proud of them,” Evergreen coach Gail Andrews said. “They never gave up, which I’m really proud of them for. There’s a lot of heart in this team.”

    CONIFER — With multiple momentum shifts, lead changes and a rain delay, there was no shortage of excitement during the top-10 match-up between the Conifer Lobos and Golden Demons softball teams on Aug. 22 at Conifer High School.

    In the end, the No. 7 Lobos weathered the storm and escaped with a 9-8 walk-off win against the No. 2 Demons.

    The Lobos dug themselves in quite a hole early against the Demons. After taking a 4-0 lead after the top of the first, it seemed as if the Demons were going to run away with the game.

  • Tigers were the cooler cats in...

    EVERGREEN — Evergreen football brought the fire and the fury in its first game of the 2018 season, but it was too little, too late.

    On their home field under the Friday night lights, the Cougars fell to 3A’s second-ranked Erie 35-7 after coming out strong against the Tigers in the second half.

  • On Parr: Evergreen sisters win...

    For years, a pair of sisters out of Evergreen Middle School, Katie and Sophie Parr, have been competing at a high level in various intermountain sectional tennis tournaments, including competition from Colorado, Nevada, Wyoming, Montana and Utah.

    Last month at the small, 30-player Ardene R. Bullard Memorial District Cup in Salt Lake City, 14-year-old Katie and 11-year-old Sophie flexed their tennis muscles when, in playing 14 doubles together for the first time, they won the level 5 tournament.

    By Alex Purcell

    EVERGREEN — The season-opening softball tournament game didn’t pan out how the Evergreen Cougars might’ve liked, but despite the setback, the team remains optimistic about the future. 

    In the first game of a tournament they hosted, the Cougars went head-to-head against Arvada West’s Wildcats on Friday but lost 5-3.

    The Cougars finished out the tournament with a 2-2 record, losing to Ponderosa, beating Mesa Ridge and defeating Falcon in the final game.

  • ‘I guarantee we’re going to make...

    After an appearance in the state playoffs last year and having only lost a few of its top guns, the Platte Canyon football team is looking ahead to what it hopes will be another successful season.

    However, some of those top guns were huge offensive producers for the rush-minded Huskies.

    “We lost a few hard-nose kids like Trevor Sander and Colton Carson, (and) a couple of other guys,” head coach Mike Schmidt said. “Returning-wise, we have a pretty good core coming back.”

  • Miller wins opening 4A golf...

    ARVADA — After finishing second at state last year and losing two top guns on the roster, the Evergreen boys golf team had high expectations heading into this season.

    The Cougars answered the call.

    At West Woods Golf Course on Monday, the Cougars, led by senior standout Nolan Miller, earned a second-place team finish with a collective 317 score, narrowly losing out to first-place Golden, who shot a 315.

    Miller shot a 71, one-under par, to earn an individual first-place finish.

  • Lobos take fourth at Jeffco...

    ARVADA — After the first tournament of the 2018 season, Conifer boys golf has some work to do, but head coach Jeremy Barnett believes the Lobos have what it takes to finish out the year strong.

    In the 4A/5A Jeffco League tournament at West Woods Golf Course on Monday, the Lobos finished 11th overall as a team and fourth in 4A.
