  • Lobo volleyball falls to rivals...

    ENGLEWOOD — Conifer volleyball had to field a lot of challenges in its 3-1 loss to Englewood on Oct. 9.

    Already down two starting setters due to injury, the Lobos were forced to start two JV setters in their places. Then one of the JV setters hit her head on the court in the second game.

    “We had so much thrown at us,” senior outside hitter Jessica King said. “... We had to be thrown into multiple different things that we’ve never done before, and it was really difficult. Somehow, we got some points on the board.”

  • Evergreen volleyball continues...

    EVERGREEN — Evergreen volleyball cannot be stopped.

    Going into Thursday’s big victory over Golden, the eighth-ranked Cougars (per CHSAANow.com) had been on a six-match win streak, most of which ended 3-0. Naturally, the Golden contest wasn’t any different as Evergreen took the Demons down easily after a sketchy first set, 3-0.

    “Tonight, it was just a big game because Golden’s really high in our rankings for our league, so it’s definitely an important game that we took the win,” senior outside hitter Gabby Clark said.

    COLORADO SPRINGS — Going into the 4A state golf tournament at the Club at Flying Horse, Evergreen’s Nolan Miller was poised to lead his team.

    But, after spraining his ankle just before the big day while roller skating, Miller decided he couldn’t sufficiently swing his club during practice on the morning of Oct. 1. Senior Justin Sneed, who had made the trip to support his teammates, stepped up and stepped in to play in his spot.

  • EHS soccer holds off D’Evelyn

    ARVADA — Going into its game on Oct. 3 at the North Area Athletic Complex, D’Evelyn soccer had yet to score a goal.

    For the first time all season, the Jaguars found their offense and gave Evergreen quite the game as the Cougars pulled out the 4-3 win thanks to some key late saves by sophomore keeper Keaton Gressman.

    Evergreen wasn’t expecting D’Evelyn to come out and play the way it did.

  • Huskies pull out big win against...

    BAILEY — A big, late-game rally couldn’t save Clear Creek from past mistakes that haunted it earlier in the game.

    With 42 seconds left in the contest, the Golddiggers scored on a 1-yard QB sneak from Lucas Gerding to pull them within two at Platte Canyon, 30-28. All they needed was a 2-point conversion to ensure overtime, during which they could redeem themselves after a rough first half.

    But Platte Canyon’s senior quarterback/free safety Liam Murphy had other plans.

    CONIFER — When Sam Dunivan capped “one of my best (offensive) games ever’’ by carrying a pitch out from J.T. Hart for a 2-yard touchdown run with 2:21 left against SkyView, the Conifer football team and its fans thought they finally could breathe easy.

    The senior’s third touchdown of the night gave the Lobos a 27-13 lead as they strove to snap a two-game losing streak and enter 3A Mountain Metro League play this week against Green Mountain on a positive note.

  • Platte Canyon girls continue to...

    BRIGHTON — Last year, the Platte Canyon girls were already rocking the cross country course. This year, the team is finally getting the recognition it deserves.

    In moving down a classification this year and gaining more runners, the Huskies finally have enough girls to score as a team — a luxury they didn’t have last season.
