  • Journey for four EHS tennis...

    By Anthony Sandstrom

    PUEBLO — The Evergreen girls tennis team may have found itself at the 4A girls tennis state tournament at Pueblo City Park Thursday, but it felt a bit like a fancy dual against Durango.

    The Evergreen state qualifiers — No. 1-singles player Zoe Love, Alexa Endsley at No. 2 singles, and the No. 1 doubles team of Saphie Potts and Jen Lawrence — each dropped first-round matches to Durango, prematurely ending the Cougars’ showing at the state tournament.

    For the past six years, Evergreen girls basketball has been a state powerhouse, winning the state title two years in a row and playing in the title games three times.

    But that era, led by stellar head coach Amy Bahl, has come to an end. Bahl recently announced her resignation from the team, citing a third pregnancy as her reasoning behind the decision. She and her husband are expecting this November.

    After strong seasons on the court, Evergreen will be sending five athletes to 4A state tennis in Pueblo this weekend: Zoe Love (No. 1 singles), Alexa Endsley (No. 2 singles), Grace Gordon-McGlone (No. 3 singles) and Jennifer Lawrence/Saphie Potts (No. 1 doubles).

    Conifer will send four girls on two doubles teams to the 3A tournament in Greeley: Hattie Dahlin/Ava Dalton (No. 1 doubles) and Jesse Levesque-Etling/Marissa Rocconova.

    Jeff Dolan has jumped to the other side of the fence.

    The 2007 Conifer High School graduate announced on Twitter Monday afternoon that he has been named the new boys basketball coach at Evergreen High School. Dolan, 29, replaces Scott Haebe, who stepped down last month. Haebe will be the head basketball coach at Clear Creek High School.

  • Evergreen Cougar girls shine at...

    LAKEWOOD — Following a strong season, the Evergreen track team showed up strong at the Jeffco League track meet at Jeffco Stadium over the weekend, especially on the girls’ side.

    The team enjoyed first-place finishes from its 4 x 400 girls relay and 4 x 200 girls relay. Senior Kristina Schreiber also won second in the 400-meter dash with a 57.97-second time. Bailee Jones took second in the girls discus with a 109-6 distance.

    Although the boys saw no first-place wins, Carter Hudson snagged second in the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 40.24.

  • Evergreen baseball falters in...

    GOLDEN — The way the regular season ended, a second straight appearance in the 4A championship game should be the last thing on the minds of the Evergreen baseball team.

    The Cougars know the way they played down the stretch doesn’t even augur well for a return to the eight-team, double-elimination state finals.

  • Conifer baseball takes 4th at...

    While this season has not always been kind to the 9-10 Conifer baseball team, the Lobos were able to earn a fourth-place finish at the Colorado 7 tournament in Fort Morgan last week despite the rainy weather.

    After dropping a 12-2 decision to Fort Morgan on the first day, they bounced back to defeat Fort Lupton 12-8 and decimate Weld Central 13-0.

  • Evergreen girls lacrosse defeats...

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen girls lacrosse is having itself a great year.

    Not only is the team much improved from last year with a slew of youth talent, but it’s defeated teams it couldn’t have dreamed of a season ago.

    Those performances, along with an 11-7 decision over Conifer at Trailblazer Stadium on May 2, helped them get tantalizingly close to earning a spot in the state tournament.

    But no cigar.

  • D’Evelyn beats Evergreen in...

    LAKEWOOD — As then-No. 4 Evergreen and No. 8 D’Evelyn faced off April 25 at Lakewood Memorial Field, it felt very much like a showdown in an old Western movie — who would shoot first and whose shot would hit?

    After 80 minutes of regulation and 2:46 of overtime, the answer was D’Evelyn’s freshman forward Lauren Cook.

    On a breakaway possession, teammate Anna Pampalone found Cook near the top of the 18-yard perimeter, and Cook’s attempt hit soared into the net.

  • EHS lacrosse takes down Diggers...

    EVERGREEN — Coming out of the weekend, the Evergreen boys lacrosse team had to win to make the playoffs.

    After an 18-5 beat down at Clear Creek High School on Monday, they’re off to a good start.

    “Clear Creek, they’re our neighbors, so we appreciate and we love the character that they play with,” head coach Jay Egger said. “Those guys come out and play hard all the time, and they never give up. I respect Coach Jamey over there for what he’s done, and the character that his team shows.”
