    LAKEWOOD — As then-No. 4 Evergreen and No. 8 D’Evelyn faced off April 25 at Lakewood Memorial Field, it felt very much like a showdown in an old Western movie — who would shoot first and whose shot would hit?

    After 80 minutes of regulation and 2:46 of overtime, the answer was D’Evelyn’s freshman forward Lauren Cook.

    On a breakaway possession, teammate Anna Pampalone found Cook near the top of the 18-yard perimeter, and Cook’s attempt hit soared into the net.

    EVERGREEN — The Platte Canyon baseball team didn’t so much as beat Clear Creek on Saturday afternoon as survive against the Golddiggers.

    Falling temperatures, wind gusts that blew the ball around in unpredictable ways made life difficult for both teams. But thanks to some big hits and resiliency the Huskies prevailed, 25-15, at Clear Creek High School.

    THORNTON — The Conifer Lobos girls soccer team’s season didn’t get off to the start it had hoped. After starting off 0-3, the Lobos have won three of their last four, including a 2-0 shutout against the SkyView Academy Wolverines on Thursday.

  • Cougars stun Demons in first big...

    LAKEWOOD —The Evergreen girls lacrosse team is rolling early in the season.
    Following a strong start against relatively noncompetitive teams, the Cougars faced their first test on Thursday at Trailblazer Stadium against Golden, a team that beat them by 12 goals last year.
    The Cougars passed with flying colors.

  • Conifer, Evergreen girls golf...

    BROOMFIELD — Throughout the spring sports season, the weather can be a burden for teams that rely on it to allow their busy schedules.
    On April 14 at the Broadlands Golf Course, that weather got in the way early and hindered play for many in attendance at the Jeffco League 4A/5A tournament, which saw girls from 18 teams hit the links. Many girls cited the morning frost delay as a setback to their games.

  • Cougars can’t match Eagles

    LAKEWOOD — There’s nothing quite like a top-three baseball matchup. A fierce rivalry makes it all the more exciting.
    On Monday at All-Star Park, the Evergreen Cougars — ranked No. 3 in the latest CHSAANow.com poll — couldn’t stack up against No. 2 Valor, falling 18-6.
    Throughout the contest, errors and shaky pitching plagued the Cougars. After a second-inning, three-run bomb from Valor, Evergreen just couldn’t recover.

  • Running between the raindrops:...

    Few animals are as reviled as the unassuming night dweller, the beautifully coiffed, yet largely invisible skunk. Mostly identified by the telltale odor, the small mammals are hard to spot alive because of their nocturnal habits and shadowy excursions. And yet, there exist glimmers of appreciation of the animal.

  • Assists, academics and accolades

    Over the past three years, the Evergreen girls basketball team has become a powerhouse in the realm of high school hoops, winning two of three state title games and finishing runner-up.

    What, one may ask, is the recipe for all this success?
