  • Evergreen swimming stays perfect...

    EVERGREEN — Class 3A looks good on the Evergreen girls swim and dive team.

    The Cougars have won every single one of their first five meets of the 2018-19 season. On Dec. 21 at Wulf Rec Center, Evergreen took down Conifer 104-20, winning every single event save the junior varsity 50-yard freestyle, which the Lobos’ Paige Naku won by just 0.04 seconds.

    The move down from 4A has certainly benefited the Cougars early on.

    These days, it seems like only the fortunate few get to attend Denver Broncos games. Even fewer are the ones who perform during the local National Football League team’s 10 home games each year.

    On Dec. 15 at Broncos Stadium at Mile High, 10 athletes from Pinnacle Gymnastics in Evergreen joined the ranks of the halftime elites as they tumbled and sprang in front of a sold-out crowd. Their performance turned out better than that of the Broncos, who ended up losing to the visiting Cleveland Browns 17-16.

  • Seize the Prey: Looking for the...

    Quietly biding their time behind nature’s curtain of leaves, needles and darkness perch the fierce birds of prey. These raptors were named for the Latin word, “rapere,” meaning “to seize.”

    Raptors incorporate exceptional weapons of hooked beaks, strong talons and extraordinary hearing to catch prey. There are almost 450 species of raptors, including falcons, osprey, hawks, eagles, vultures and owls.

    A lot has changed since Nicole Levine first stepped on the varsity basketball court three months ago.

    In that short time, the Evergreen sophomore guard has blossomed into a player the Cougars can trust on both sides of the ball, and she’s become someone they’ve learned to rely on when needed.

  • Evergreen wrestling wins Jeffco...

    WHEAT RIDGE — Amid a season chock-full of both individual and team accomplishments for the Evergreen wrestling team, the Cougars earned a higher-caliber victory on Friday night: 4A Jeffco league champions.

    In the round robin tournament at Wheat Ridge High School — which also featured Golden, Standley Lake, Littleton and Wheat Ridge — the Cougars not only won the league title with 115 team points, but they also had five individual league champions in Ryan Weber (113 pounds), Rylie Sharp (120), Gabe Benton (145), Liam Osborn (170) and Reese Gibson (220).

    WINTER PARK — It seems the Evergreen ski team cannot be slowed.

    On Friday at the Winter Park ski resort, 12 Cougars — seven girls and five boys — finished their slalom races in the top 33 percent of their respective gender fields, meaning all of them qualified for state in the event.

    LITTLETON — Dakota Ridge sophomore Alexis Thornton's 3-point shots looked like beautiful rainbows to Eagles girls basketball fans on Friday.

    "I was just praying that they all go in," Thornton said of her making a trio of 3-pointers on her way to a season-high 16 points. "I think that really got the team some energy and got us riled up."

  • Hardwood heart attack: FRCS boys...

    LITTLETON — The Front Range Christian boys basketball team knows how to keep an audience on the edge of its seat.

    On Jan. 29 at Front Range Christian School, Clear Creek barely squeaked out a 63-61 victory thanks in large part to a missed last-second shot from the Falcons.

    The win perfectly epitomized the Golddiggers’ upward trend over the past couple weeks.

  • Platte Canyon skiers narrowly...

    WINTER PARK — In a growing season, the Platte Canyon ski team has been seeing great improvement as of late.

    Although Michael Dean is the Huskies’ only state qualifier to date, five skiers just barely missed the mark during Friday’s slalom competition at Winter Park.

    Dean and Palmer Lyons, the Huskies’ top male skiers, both crashed on the steep and narrow course. Twenty-eight male skiers crashed out of 63.

    Head coach Bob Feroldi has enjoyed watching his kids work their way up the pecking order as the season progresses.
