  • Evergreen All-Conference Lists

    With fall sports wrapping up, many of the Jeffco All-Conference lists are being released, with the exception of football. For Evergreen High School, kids from six sports made the All-Conference lists this fall.

    Evergreen’s football season ended Saturday in the playoff loss to Rifle, but Jeffco will not release the All-Conference list until all Jeffco teams have exited the playoffs. Volleyball lists have not yet been released.

  • Evergreen overcomes injuries,...

    THORNTON — While the 4A state gymnastics championship offered encouragement for Evergreen’s young and injury/illness-riddled team, it also presented second-year coach Tabor Cowden with a point of emphasis for next season.


    The Cougars, and junior standout Jackie Fritsche in particular, couldn’t close the deal on Nov. 3, the first day of competition at Thornton High School.

  • Cougars lose to Mullen in upset...

    EVERGREEN — All year long, the Evergreen volleyball team has been rolling through one of its most successful seasons in the past few years, but it all came to an end in the high school’s gym on Saturday afternoon as the Cougars fell to Mullen in a huge upset in the regional tournament.

    In the round-robin style tourney, the ninth-seeded Cougars hosted Thompson Valley (No. 16) and Mullen (No. 28). Everybody played each other, and the team who won both of its matches would advance to the state tournament on Friday and Saturday at the Denver Coliseum.

  • Officials: EHS didn’t use...

    Officials from the Colorado High School Activities Association, Evergreen High School and Jeffco Public Schools found that EHS didn’t use an ineligible player during its 10-9 varsity football victory over Skyview on Oct. 6. CHSAA received material — phone call correspondence and letters – last month from Skyview officials about the possible infraction by Evergreen High School.

    Bert Borgmann, an assistant commissioner for CHSAA, which oversees high school athletics in Colorado, said via e-mail that the issue is a matter between the schools.

  • Lobos fizzle out at the finish...

    CONIFER — For a half, the Conifer Lobos — at least on the scoreboard — showed they could hang with Skyview on Friday night at Lobo Field.

    It didn’t hurt that Conifer stopped Wolverines quarterback Michael Vigil short of the goal line as time expired in the first half.

    The second half, however, was a different story.

    Skyview took the opening drive 59 yards in just over three minutes for the first of three Deyvon Butler second-half touchdowns, and the Wolverines rolled to a 20-0 shutout of Conifer.

  • Dikken completes stellar...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — At the beginning of this school year, with Platte Canyon’s cross country team extremely thin in number of runners, it didn’t look as though the Huskies would send anyone to state. But, after a strong individual season, they were able to send some talent in superstar freshman, Emma Dikken.

    “It was good,” she said. “I’m glad I know how it’s going to be because it was hard, and I didn’t know how many people would be here.”

  • Conifer boys cross country ends...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Conifer cross country has been strong all season long, and it all came to an end at the Norris Penrose Center on Saturday in a metaphorical fashion, as juniors Sean Sands and Will Toppin crossed the finish line as a team, just 0.1 seconds apart.

  • After state, Cougars’ XC looks...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — All throughout this season, it seemed as though the Evergreen cross country team had been building its way up to state. The Cougars started off the year a bit slow, then slowly but surely, worked its way up to regional dominance.

    After qualifying their full boys and girls teams for the state competition at regionals, the Cougars fared well at the end-all meet on Saturday at the Norris Penrose Center as the girls’ team took 14th out of 20 squads, and the boys took 19th.

  • Conifer volleyball ends season...

    CONIFER — After building its way up from a rough start to the year, Conifer volleyball ended its season on a high note as it defeated Arvada in a 3-0 beat down on Oct. 24 on senior night, then returned to defeat Alameda two days later.

    After a strong start, during which the Lobos won 25-10 over the Bulldogs, Arvada slowly crept back into the competition in the next two games to gives Conifer a run for its money. In the end, however, the Lobos got the job done: 25-20 and 25-17.

  • Cougars dust Lobos in annual...

    EVERGREEN — The Evergreen Cougars dismissed the distractions of the hoopla surrounding its rivalry game on Oct. 20 and beat Conifer Lobos 38-13 in the Mountain Bowl Friday.

    The Cougars won their second straight game under interim coach Dave Leek, who had been the special teams coordinator, and fifth in a row overall and third in league play. The Cougars improved to 7-1 overall and can clinch the 3A West Metro title with a win this week against Green Mountain.
