    While the homecoming festivities last week made for some late nights for students at Evergreen High School, the Lady Cougars’ gymnasts didn’t slow down. In fact, they seemed to thrive under pressure.
    For the seniors, Sept. 26 was the last chance for a victory in their home gym during the regular season, and they didn’t buckle under the pressure. In fact, the Cougars had the highest scoring  meet of the 2013 season.

  • Cougars unload on Lobos

    CONIFER — The Evergreen Cougars were clicking in every phase of the game. And that was just in the first half. Evergreen scored the game’s first four goals and added seven more after that to befuddle host Conifer 11-1 on Sept. 30 at Lobo Field. The game was called with 6 minutes, 46 seconds left in the second half due to the 10-goal mercy rule.

  • Evergreen front line blocks CHS

    CONIFER — For the most part, the difference between Evergreen’s volleyball program and Conifer’s is minuscule. But if one wants to find a decisive advantage, it would have to be the Lady Cougars’ strength on the front line, especially with players such as Andrea Eddy.
    Only a sophomore, Eddy is an imposing figure on the court. She was a major factor in Evergreen’s attack, recording a match-high 13 kills in a 26-24, 25-21, 25-18 win over host Conifer on Sept. 26 at Conifer High School.

  • Pack leads EHS to top runs

    LITTLETON — Being from New England — Connecticut to be exact — Caitlin Schmitt didn’t mind the persistent rain that fell Sept. 27 at the Dave Sanders Invitational. It was her kind of weather. It suited the Evergreen Lady Cougars just fine as well.
    Led by Schmitt’s sixth-place finish in 19 minutes, 46 seconds, the Evergreen girls took first place in the Division 2 varsity race at Clement Park with 56 points. The Lady Cougars, who had four runners in the top 23, edged second-place Coronado by a point.

  • Health focus in open space...

    The relationship between open space and public health gets an inordinate amount of attention in a second draft of the master plan for Jeffco Parks and Open Space, according to some members of the advisory committee.

    “I think there is an inordinate amount of text devoted to community health,” Jan Wilkins said while reviewing the second draft of the plan with other committee members last Thursday night.

    “There are so many aspects of open space,” Wilkins said. “There should be a more comprehensive description of what we do.”

  • Aspen leaves begin to turn gold...

    The aspen just below our house have turned yellow in just two days. As I write, they have changed from a sickly yellowish-green to a sickly greenish-yellow.

  • Conifer grants wish for birthday

    CONIFER — Carrie Oletski wanted one thing more than anything else for her birthday. And on Sept. 19, the Conifer Lady Lobos granted their coach her wish.
    Behind a seven-run offensive outburst in the second inning and three insurance runs in the sixth, host Conifer, on a blustery afternoon, held off a feisty Evergreen squad for an 11-8 victory.

  • EHS qualifies three for state;...

    It was mission accomplished and déjà vu for Evergreen at the Sept. 16 4A Metro golf regional.
    For the second straight year the Cougars failed to land one of the two automatic four-player team berths for the state tournament but managed to qualify three individuals, making them eligible for the team race at the 4A state tournament.

  • Cougars pull off another late...

    Rob Molholm was exasperated. And, yet, the Evergreen High football coach was just walking the sidelines. But the Mountain Bowl has a way of doing that to one, especially after the latest chapter.
    The Evergreen-Conifer rivalry may be one-sided in the final results the past four years, but each time, the game has been riveting. That was again the case Sept. 20 at Evergreen High School. The host Cougars, who trailed for the entire first half, rallied in the fourth quarter with a Joe Danni 20-yard TD run with 5 minutes, 57 seconds remaining for a 23-22 victory.

  • Curtis, defense come up big as...

    Senior Jack Curtis rushed 20 times for 144 yards and three touchdowns, and Evergreen, as a team, rushed for 329 yards en route to a 27-20 win over Northridge on Sept. 12 at Evergreen High School.
    The Cougars (2-1) built a 20-6 halftime lead on the heels of two Curtis TD runs, a Kip Nilson two-point conversion, a Greyson Lincoln safety and a 27-yard Matt Hornbecker field goal.
    Joe Danni ran 10 times for 92 yards and Tanner Cassin added 56 yards on 14 carries.
