    On a night that saw the Evergreen football team potentially playing its last game of the season, the Cougars were firing on all cylinders. With a strong effort from start to finish, they easily put away the Kennedy Commanders, 46-6.

    After a tough loss to Green Mountain three weeks back, the Cougars weren’t in the best position to secure a playoff spot. The Cougars knew they’d have to bring the intensity the final two games to have a chance at the playoffs.

    EVERGREEN — There is almost no greater feeling than finishing the regional volleyball season with a win. Just ask the Evergreen Cougars. 

    The Cougars emerged victorious after going to battle against the Thompson Valley Eagles and the Titans of The Classical Academy in the postseason volleyball tournament.

    The Cougars went undefeated in their two matches, winning three sets in a row to best the Titans (25-19, 25-14, 25-21) and later repeating the feat to put down the Eagles (25-14, 25-22, 25-14).

  • Fritsche shines for EHS...

    THORNTON — Going into her final gymnastics meet with the Evergreen High program, senior Jackie Fritsche feared she would finish her high school career flat.

    After all, she could barely talk with the cold that had plagued her for the few days leading up to and including the 4A state gymnastics meet at Thornton High School.

    But on Friday and Saturday, she didn’t act like she was sick.

  • Husky XC girls earn runner-up at...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Oh what a difference a classification makes.

    Last year, as a 3A team in Colorado cross country, Platte Canyon was barely a blip on the state meet’s radar as only freshman Emma Dikken qualified for the big meet at the Norris Penrose Events Center.

    This year, in 2A, the Huskies not only qualified their full girls team, but they finished runner-up in the team competition on Saturday.

    In a dominant performance, the Evergreen Cougars jumped on the Conifer Lobos early on in the annual Mountain Bowl and never looked back.

    With big contributions from running backs Ben Haefeli and Phillip Yaro and wide receiver/safety Gavan Foote, the Cougars secured their biggest win of the year, 48-26.

    Evergreen wasted no time getting on the board as Yaro ripped off a 37-yard touchdown run on the opening drive, the first of his three touchdowns.

    BAILEY — Platte Canyon left nothing to chance — or, to be more specific, RPI.

    Instead of having to rely on the Ratings Percentage Index to extend their season, the Huskies pounded Manual 43-6 on Oct. 27 to win the 1A Foothills League football title and its automatic spot in the state playoffs. The seven league champions advance along with the next nine highest in RPI.

  • Evergreen and Conifer XC...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Evergreen and Conifer may not have sent too many kids to the 4A state cross country meet last weekend, but that didn’t stop the Cougars and Lobos from giving it their all.

    At the Norris Penrose Event Center on Saturday afternoon, the Cougars and Lobos competed in difficult 4A races.


  • Cougar soccer ends comeback...

    BROOMFIELD — Following a rough start to its 2018 season, Evergreen’s boys soccer team had to fight tooth and nail to make it to the 4A state tournament. But the Cougars did it.

    On Oct. 24 at 10-seeded Holy Family High School, their turnaround campaign ended with a thriller as they fell to the Tigers 2-1 in double overtime in the first round of the tourney.

  • Cougar volleyball tops a tough...

    EVERGREEN — All season long, Evergreen volleyball has been a dominant force. D’Evelyn has been one of the only teams to challenge the Cougars.

    On Thursday at home, that trend was no different. The Cougars pounced on the Jaguars and won the exotic cat fight 3-1 behind the offensive efforts of the Dillon sisters. Earlier in the season, Evergreen beat D’Evelyn 3-2.

  • Cougars end rebuilding season...

    By Craig Harper

    AURORA — Disregard Evergreen’s 10-1 loss to second-seeded Silver Creek in the first round of the 4A state softball tournament.

    Just getting there for the first time in eight years was a monumental accomplishment for the Cougars.
