  • 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.

    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?

    Following another stellar season in which the Evergreen girls basketball team won consecutive state championships, head coach Amy Bahl earned recognition from the Denver Post as their All-Colorado girls basketball coach of the year — something the paper has been recognizing since 1993.

    CONIFER — In its first match of the season on March 20 against its rivals, the Evergreen girls tennis team showed up in full force to earn a 7-0 victory over host Conifer.

    Led by junior No. 1 singles player Zoe Love, the Cougars secured a big victory for their first win of the season. In her match, Love took on Conifer (1-3) senior Hailey Janson and, after going down 6-1 in the first set, battled back to win the second and the subsequent tie-breaker.

    Nephologists get no respect.  Wikipedia has a complete meltdown about whether the term is still relevant, internet searches might provide, instead, links to “nephrology” (the study of kidneys), and even the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Admin-istration, that bastion of meteorology, gets it wrong, only producing a reference to how kidney disease is affected by climate change.

  • Cougars stay dominant over Lobos

    EVERGREEN — Whenever Conifer and Evergreen face off in any given sport, spectators can generally expect a heated, competitive game.

    That was the case on Saturday night at Evergreen High School as, despite a highly defensive effort from both soccer squads, the Cougars — ranked No. 9 in the CHSAANow.com 4A poll — emerged victorious for the sixth year in a row against their rivals, 2-0.

    DENVER — As the clock wound down at the Denver Coliseum on Saturday and Evergreen senior Baylee Galan-Browne dribbled the ball into the corner of the court, she couldn’t contain her excitement. When the final buzzer sounded, she jumped up and down out of pure joy.

    The Cougars had defeated Pueblo South 46-38 in the final game for the second year in a row to become state champions.

    For the past three years, winning hasn't just been a trend for the Evergreen girls basketball team. It's been a way of life.

    On Saturday afternoon at the Denver Coliseum, the Cougars amplified that theme as they secured the 4A state title for the second year in a row, defeating Pueblo South in the championship once more, 46-38.

    The state victory comes after the Cougars won a very competitive Jeffco league, a feat they couldn't achieve last year.
