    That was the case on Saturday night at Evergreen High School as, despite a highly defensive effort from both soccer squads, the Cougars — ranked No. 9 in the CHSAANow.com 4A poll — emerged victorious for the sixth year in a row against their rivals, 2-0.

    For the past three years, winning hasn't just been a trend for the Evergreen girls basketball team. It's been a way of life.

    On Saturday afternoon at the Denver Coliseum, the Cougars amplified that theme as they secured the 4A state title for the second year in a row, defeating Pueblo South in the championship once more, 46-38.

    The state victory comes after the Cougars won a very competitive Jeffco league, a feat they couldn't achieve last year.

    With 15 hits, their bats were hot the whole game.

    COLORADO SPRINGS — In keeping course with the rest of their dominant season, the Evergreen Cougars (24-2) entered the 4A state tournament with their sights set on one thing: repeating as state champions.

  • Cougar boys bow out of...

    EVERGREEN — The Evergreen boys were never supposed to make it this far. 

    Going into the 2017-18 basketball season, few expected them to make much noise in a very strong Jeffco league. But the Cougars weren’t concerned with maintaining expectations.

    After finishing 18-5 in the regular season with a chance to secure the league title, the Cougars earned the No. 8 seed and a bye in the first round of the state tournament and won their first game.
