  • Conifer boys take fourth at...

    Losing a two-time state champion diver figured to have quite an effect on the Conifer boys swim team.

    Fortunately for the Lobos, and unfortunately for the teams they competed against, the lack of a diver on this year’s squad only helped to fortify the rest of the ranks.

  • Mountain Lax Jam attracts...

    Dan Hesson came for the lacrosse, but he stayed for the pizza.

    Hesson, who coaches the varsity boys lacrosse team for Cheyenne Central High School in Wyoming, drove 127 miles this past weekend to lead his team against a host of unknown competition in the third annual Mountain Lax Jam.

  • In final meet, Berendzen leads...

    LAKEWOOD — You probably can’t run 1,600 meters without stopping.

  • Get ready for a lacrosse...

    The girls’ 4x800-meter relay team of Danielle Randolph, Kyla Berendzen, Bryn Haebe and Tayler Warren took first place with a time of 10 minutes, 13.56 seconds.

    Evergreen’s baseball season went beyond May 3, although it wasn’t because of victory.

  • Tennis team taking seven to state

    Evergreen girls tennis coach Radka Lacjak had a good feeling about her three singles players heading into last weekend’s regional tournament.

    When the dust settled, all three had punched a ticket to the Class 4A state tournament in Pueblo and the Cougars had a second-place finish in the team standings.

  • Lobos fly by Jaguars

    The hills were about to be alive with singing April 25. Dancing, too.

    With prom set for that evening or the next for many of the swimmers on the confederate Conifer squad, the dual meet with D’Evelyn was all about finishing as fast as possible.

  • Forbes ends regular season as...

    GOLDEN — There were suggestions April 28 that Chance Forbes was mentally at prom two days after the fact, while her body, meanwhile, was competing at the 14th annual Ashley Forey Invitational.

  • Cougars get best of rival
