  • Technology help for the outdoors

    Surrounded by rugged peaks, wildflower meadows and trout-laden rivers, people living in Colorado revel in the breathtaking — sometimes quite literally — vistas and accompanying recreational choices. Even so, adversity may arise in the high country. Getting lost or injured in remote areas, dodging wildlife on highways or having animal encounters, possibly dangerous, are not uncommon.

  • Evergreen girls stun No. 3...

    GOLDEN — In perhaps its biggest road game of the season thus far, the Evergreen girls basketball team brought the fire at Golden High School in the top-five matchup on Wednesday night, and the Demons got burned.

    Following a strong defensive first half and excellent play across the board, the No. 4 Cougars (per CHSAANow.com) buried the No. 3 Demons, 50-40, improving their overall standing to 14-1.

  • Evergreen boys lose heartbreaker...

    GOLDEN — Sometimes the shots don’t fall your way.

    That’s what happened when the Evergreen boys’ basketball team, ranked No. 8 last week in the CHSAANow.com 4A poll and now No. 9, visited No. 4 Golden (now No. 3) on Jan. 24. Despite opportunity after opportunity to sink the game-winner in the final seconds of the matchup, the Cougars just couldn’t get a shot to fall as they eventually lost, 58-57.

  • Cougar swimmers victorious...

    EVERGREEN — Following suit in its dominating season in the water, the Evergreen girls’ swim team defeated the visiting Conifer Lobos at the Wulf Rec Center on Jan. 23 during senior night, 120-54.

    With league competition just around the corner, that’s the best the Cougars could ask for.

    ARVADA — Conifer’s boys basketball team found its scoring touch in the nick of time on Jan. 23 at Arvada High School.

    Holding on to a 39-37 lead after three quarters against an improved Arvada squad, the Lobos scored 27 points in the final eight minutes to take a 66-48 road victory in the Class 4A/3A Colorado 7 league game.

    Despite Brush’s dominant performance against the Conifer Lobos wrestling team last Tuesday, Conifer’s Zander and Cayden Condit both showed they’re worthy of their top-15 rankings in their respective weight classes.

    Although Brush came out on top 60-12, the Condit siblings both notched pins in impressive fashion.

  • Evergreen skiers, Jeffco...

    WINTER PARK — In a show of force on Thursday at the Winter Park Resort, the Evergreen High School ski team dominated on the mountain in its first slalom race of the season.

    The girls’ team won the race, and the boys finished second.

    The team, which represents members from all Jeffco high schools, saw immense success from a wide range of skiers, as four girls finished in the top 10 and three boys followed suit. In all, 19 skiers qualified for state in that discipline.

  • Amid rebuilding year, Husky...

    WINTER PARK — The Platte Canyon ski team fared well on the slalom course at a meet featuring eight schools at Winter Park Resort on Thursday.

    On the more difficult-than-normal course, the Huskies boys and girls both finished seventh.

  • No. 4 Evergreen devours Eagles

    HIGHLANDS RANCH — Going into Wednesday’s game at No. 3 Golden, the fourth-ranked (per CHSAANow.com) Evergreen girls basketball team needs all the momentum it can get.

    On Friday night at then-No. 6 Valor Christian, it got just that as it defeated the Eagles handily, 52-33, to advance to 13-1 on the season.

  • Depleted Huskies take their...

    EVERGREEN — For Ruger Bixler, the start to the wrestling season was difficult. After all, the Platte Canyon junior was coming back to the team after taking a year off. He needed to knock the rust off, you could say.

    So getting two matches in the Huskies’ double dual with Battle Mountain and Byers on Thursday night at Clear Creek High School was crucial.

    “You can learn from anything I guess, any match,” Bixler said. “Whether it’s a win or a loss, it’s good to have that experience to build off of.”
