  • Evergreen mountain bike club...

    It may not be CHSAA-sanctioned, but the Evergreen High School mountain biking club team provides one of the biggest squads in all of EHS athletics with nearly 40 members.

    It would seem many-a-teenager has a passion for the mountainside.

    “I already loved biking and I figured that because the school already had a mountain biking team, I might as well sign up for it,” sophomore Zach Footer said. “It was a really good decision. Just the general attitude on the team with everybody is super fun.”

  • Alex Kim highlights Evergreen...

    The conditions may not have been perfect on Friday at Loveland Ski Resort, but the Evergreen ski team still came out strong with a major victory from its top man.

    Senior Alex Kim, perhaps one of the top competitors among Colorado high school skiers, barely edged out a first-place finish in the giant slalom over his teammate, Cam Woodland. The two completed their runs in 38.37 seconds and 38.95 seconds, respectively.

  • Charger hoops edges out Rebels

    LITTLETON — The Chatfield girls basketball team achieved a feat it hadn’t accomplished in nearly three years.

    On Jan. 16 at Columbine High School, the Chargers defeated their rivals in 41-38 defensive battle. The last time they beat the Rebels was Jan. 22, 2016.

    “This is so awesome,” Chatfield senior guard/forward Tedy Reed said. “We haven’t won since the first time we played them my freshman year. It’s been, I think, like eight years since we beat them at (their) home, so I’m ecstatic.”

    Who knew that the large tawny cat with the distinctive tail would win a place in the Guinness Book of World Records? Unbeknownst to the mountain lion, she has been anointed with more than 40 names, like puma, panther, catamount and cougar.

  • Evergreen grad Dorsey drafted by...

    When Griffin Dorsey was growing up, kicking the soccer ball against a wooden wall his father built on the family’s Evergreen property, he always had the dream of someday playing Major League Soccer.

    On Friday in Chicago, that dream became a reality when Dorsey’s name was called as the sixth-overall pick of the 2019 MLS SuperDraft. He went to Toronto FC.

    The 2017 Evergreen High School graduate was in the Windy City for the big day.

  • Dishing it out: Conifer’s Landon...

    When it comes to basketball, selflessness is sometimes hard to come by. For Conifer junior Landon Wallace, it’s second nature.

    A born leader, Wallace has always been a true point guard who plays only with the interest of his teammates in mind. That’s earned him national-level marks in the assist category, where, as of Tuesday, he was ranked eighth in the entire country across all classifications in assists per game, according to Maxpreps.com.

    Just a couple weeks ago, he was ranked sixth. He’s also No. 1 in Colorado.

  • Evergreen wrestlers deny...

    LITTLETON — Evergreen wrestling has been on fire this season.

    This season, the Cougar wrestlers are enjoying their biggest team in head coach Luke Burrier’s tenure with nearly 30 boys, but that’s not all.

    “It’s the most success Evergreen’s had since I’ve been here,” Burrier said. “This is our fourth season, this coaching staff, with them. We’re finding ways to medal. We’re finding ways to find not only individual success, but successful outcomes as a team.”

  • Evergreen girls basketball stuns...

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen girls basketball doesn’t know how to quit.

    On Monday night at Bear Creek High School, the Cougars took down the Bears in a show of stamina, outlasting the home team 55-29.

    Throughout the matchup, seven Cougars connected with the nylon as senior forward Claudia Dillon led with 20 points. Sophomore guard Nicole Levine and junior guard/forward Hayley Dillon trailed behind her with 14 and 12 points, respectively.

  • Legend shoots lights out against...

    LITTLETON — Sometimes the shots just don’t fall the way a team wants them to.

    On Jan. 8 against Legend on its own home court, Chatfield couldn’t hit its shots while at times it seemed like the Titans couldn’t miss. The Chargers fell 78-36.

    “They shot the ball really well, and they just came out with more intensity than we did,” sophomore Nate Jacobson said. “It shows that we’ve got to come out with more intensity, we’ve got to come out with more confidence.”
