    CONIFER — Despite starting off strong against D’Evelyn and keeping up its effort on Friday night, the Conifer boys basketball team was no match for the Jaguars as the Lobos fell 65-47.

    The Jaguars saw offensive action from each of their players, but there was no match on the court for senior Charles Dinegar, who netted 22 points and snagged 11 rebounds. Conifer’s closest competition to him was senior Mark Studer, who scored 15 and rebounded 12.

    EVERGREEN — The No. 1 Evergreen girls’ basketball team finally met its match.
    On Dec. 7 at Evergreen High School, visiting Holy Family — ranked No. 9 in the CHSAANow.com Class 4A preseason poll — beat the Cougars down the stretch to squeak out a win, 58-54. It was Evergreen’s first loss of the season.
    Throughout the matchup, junior Claudia Dillon led Evergreen with 16 points and was followed closely by senior Meriel Hahn, who added 11.

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen seniors Chase Rogers and Bridger Tenney proved to be the 1-2 punch the Cougars’ boys basketball team needed on Thursday.
    Evergreen (4-1) trailed early in the fourth quarter to Erie in the opening round of the Paul Davis Classic at Green Mountain High School. Rogers and Tenney took over in the fourth quarter, combing for 13 points as the Cougars pulled away for a 64-55 victory.

    CONIFER — Even a late-game surge from sophomore point guard Landon Wallace couldn’t save the Conifer boys basketball team from falling to visiting Golden.
    On Friday night at Conifer High School, the Lobos lost to the Demons 62-51, but it could have been much worse had Wallace not made four big shots at the end — three midrange jumpers and a three — to help bring a 21-point deficit down to 11.

    DENVER — All of the hard work that the Evergreen poms team put in for the past months finally paid off on Saturday in the 4A state spirit competition at the Denver Coliseum.
    The Cougars placed 12th in the pool of 24 teams, scoring a 74.4667.
    Their routine included a variety of moves, including a triple turn, six tours into a double turn and aerials.
    From the spectators’ viewpoint, they looked perfectly in-sync during a very energetic routine.

  • Cougar boys plagued by ball-...

    EVERGREEN — In its second game of the season, the Evergreen boys basketball team couldn’t get the job done on Friday night after a sluggish start on offense against visiting Silver Creek as it fell, 58-45.

    Silver Creek, ranked sixth in the CHSAANow.com Class 4A poll, outpaced the Cougars all night on the offensive end, and Evergreen’s defense didn’t do much to stop it on the other end of the court either — aside from the third quarter.

    The Conifer High School girls basketball team came up short against the Demons of Golden High School on Nov. 29, falling 63-32.

    Senior Casey Scheffer led the way with eights points and a steal for the Lobos in a game in which they seemed to find difficulty getting into a rhythm. Despite the result, coach Cara Walderman was positive about her team’s performance and attitude.

    The sun was warm as we gathered on Vail Pass last July. Paige Singer, a biologist for Rocky Mountain Wild, and Lisi Lohre, Citizen Science intern for the Denver Zoo, handed out hardhats and bright orange vests to the three volunteers before we piled into an SUV. We drove to a spot between Copper Mountain and Vail Pass, and parked on the shoulder along westbound Interstate 70, near where a number of motion-triggered cameras had been placed in the spring.

    It may be hard to improve on its 4A state championship from last year — the first in school history — but that won’t stop the Evergreen girls’ basketball team from likely dominating its competition on the hardwood this season.

    It certainly doesn’t hurt that they only lost one senior following the 2016 season.
