  • McFayden looks ahead to...

    As he finished his high school career last week at Platte Canyon High School, Devan McFayden also said goodbye to his time playing club rugby with Platte and Conifer, a team called PAC.

    But his rugby career is far from over.

    Now, he has his sights set on the All-State rugby club, and he’s off to a great start in that direction.

  • ‘It was like the course beat...

    Heading into the 4A state tournament in Colorado Springs last week, the Evergreen girls golfers were riding high off of a strong performance at regionals the week prior. But a difficult course at the Country Club of Colorado halted that progress.

    In the end, however, the Cougars were able to work toward a seventh-place team finish with the work of Brianna Bond, Kate Lisle, Madeline Gatt and Riley Roberts.

    DENVER — For the third time in four years, Evergreen’s baseball program was able to flip the switch come postseason time.

    The Cougars (15-8 record) qualified for yet another Class 4A eight-team, double-elimination state tournament after regional playoff victories against Falcon and Palmer Ridge on May 12. Three straight losses heading into the postseason didn’t faze Evergreen, who advanced all the way to the 4A title game last year before falling to 4A Jeffco League rival Valor Christian.

    PUEBLO — The leader boards from the Class 3A state girls golf tournament Monday and Tuesday showed Conifer High School’s Bailey Sessions and Jordan Griffin near the bottom of the field.

    Sessions carded a two-day total of 214 and finished 68th, and Griffin shot a 220, placing 75th at Elmwood Golf Course May 21 and 22.

    Not their best rounds, but they’ll leave the scores for everyone else to analyze.

    The Lobos understand what they achieved with their appearance: making it to the big stage their senior year.

  • Platte Canyon’s Rayburn vaults...

    LAKEWOOD — Platte Canyon’s Hayley Rayburn was having a phenomenal season at pole vault, winning every single track and field meet she attended.

    On Friday night at Jeffco Stadium, she finally met her match.

    Following more than two hours of lightning delays and a few other hiccups, it came down to a battle between the No. 1-seeded Husky senior and Classical Academy’s Erika Willis, who set the 3A pole vault state track meet record last year at 12 feet, 5 inches. The duel lasted until about 8:30 p.m., long after 99 percent of the fans had left.

  • Evergreen falls to Valor...

    Highlands Ranch — After the game was over, more than the players huddled around coach Peter Jeans.

    The entire Evergreen girls soccer family gathered together to conclude the season with a final sendoff as parents, siblings and friends embraced their players.

    “Playing with heart is a memory that holds out,” Jeans told the group. “... To watch us go down to the wire fighting — I’m very proud of you guys.”

  • At state, Conifer girls gain...

    For Conifer girls tennis, the Class 3A state tournament was a learning experience.

    The Lobos may have finished with zero points, but what they lacked in results, they more than made up for in experience.

    Of the four qualifiers — Hattie Dahlin and Ava Dalton at No. 1 doubles and Jessie Levesque-Etling and Marissa Rocconova at No. 2 doubles — none had ever played in a state match.

    None of them are not seniors, and Dalton is just a freshman.

  • Aspen boys finish off Evergreen

    ASPEN — The Aspen High School boys lacrosse team used a strong second-half push in the nightcap of Wednesday’s AHS playoff trifecta to beat visiting Evergreen, 10-5, in the first round of the Class 4A state tournament.

  • Sailors sink Conifer boys

    By Joel Reichenberger

    STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Conifer High School boys lacrosse coach Dak Riecke said his team had studied Steamboat Springs on film, and when the Lobos and Sailors met Wednesday evening in Steamboat, they knew what to stop: the most skilled Sailors from curling around the back of the net to work in the alleys in front of the goal.

    “We talked about it all week,” Riecke said. “We saw it on film. We knew they’d run with that, but they ran it perfectly.”

  • Evergreen soccer continues to...

    LAKEWOOD — The Evergreen and Wheat Ridge girls soccer teams had been here before.

    The Class 4A Jeffco League teams faced off in the Class 4A state tournament quarterfinals a year ago with Evergreen hanging on to a 2-1 victory that led to an eventual state runner-up finish. The two conference rivals met up again in the postseason on Saturday at Lakewood Memorial Field, this time in the second round.
