    EVERGREEN — Evergreen’s girls basketball team has already accomplished something this season that last year’s Class 4A state championship squad didn’t do.

    The Cougars officially wrapped up the 4A Jeffco League title Feb. 13 with a victory over Valor Christian. It’s actually the first conference title for the program since the 2002-03 season.

    EVERGREEN — The Class 4A Jeffco League boys basketball title is heading back to Golden after the Demons, No. 3 seed, won the conference title outright Thursday with a 58-48 road victory against No. 8-seeded Evergreen.

    “Obviously, we didn’t play as well as we would have liked,” Evergreen coach Scott Haebe said. “We just seemed a step slow defensively, and we really never got into a rhythm offensively.”

    CONIFER — The Conifer boys basketball team could have packed it in after its horrendous start: The Lobos lost eight of their first nine games and entered the 2018 calendar year having lost seven straight.

    But through it all, the team never gave into the losing, and it paid off. Conifer (12-11, 8-2) can call itself conference champions after beating Alameda 65-49 on Feb. 14, capping a turnaround that will continue in the Class 4A state tournament.

    ENGLEWOOD — Cayden Condit walked off the mat and fell into the embrace of her older brother, Zander, as the two shared a hug.
    This wasn’t just a simple show of support between a brother and sister. It was a teammate, a fellow wrestler recognizing the work that has been put in since Cayden was 6 years old.
    “It’s just amazing to see her succeed. It’s well-deserved,” said Zander Condit, a Conifer High School sophomore, and 132-pounder.

    THORNTON — Especially after overcoming illnesses, the Evergreen and Conifer girls’ swim and dive teams exceeded expectations last weekend at the 4A and 3A state meets at the Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center.

    At the 3A finals on Friday, Conifer placed 19th out of 26 teams with 34 points, and Evergreen placed 10th with 126 points after being seeded 18th prior to the meet.

    ENGLEWOOD — One was methodical, taking what was given to him; the other a furious scramble late to take back what was temporarily taken away from him. No matter, the end result was the same: regional wrestling championships for Conifer’s Zander Condit and Captain Payne on Saturday at Englewood High School.

    GOLDEN — Not long after advancing to the third-place match at 120 pounds in the 4A Region 4 wrestling tournament on Saturday at Golden High School, Rylie Sharp could breathe a sigh of relief. Win or lose, he had become Evergreen’s first state qualifier for 2018.
