  • Huskies decimate Pinnacle in a...

    BAILEY — It would seem the Platte Canyon volleyball team has turned a corner.

    Following a 2-6 start to the season, the Huskies have won all of their last four games to equalize their record with just a few games left to play. The turnaround started when they squeaked out a 3-2 win against Jefferson, and they’ve swept every team since in three games.

    That domination started at home against Pinnacle on Sept. 18 as Platte Canyon pinned down Pinnacle 3-0 and wouldn’t let the Timberwolves gain any traction.

  • Evergreen shuts out Conifer in...

     EVERGREEN — With its season nearly drawing to an end, the Evergreen tennis team has been rolling with a 5-3 record, and its match against Conifer was no different.

    Conifer, for its part, has been in transition mode this year since moving out of an incredibly easy Colorado 7 league and into a much more competitive 4A Region 3.

    On Thursday at Evergreen’s tennis courts, the Cougars outlasted the Lobos 7-0 while leaning on a young cast of freshmen and sophomores, though Conifer didn’t make it easy on them.

    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen’s boys golf team clinched the Class 4A Jeffco team conference title and the individual medalist crown on Thursday at Fox Hollow Golf Course at the final regular-season tournament of the season.

    The Cougars, the 4A state team runner-up last year, won five of six league tournaments this season in cruising to the team title.

  • Platte Canyon girls XC wins...

    EVERGREEN — The weather and course conditions may not have been ideal on Sept. 11, but that didn’t stop the Platte Canyon girls cross country team from blowing away the competition.

    During the Golddigger invite at Clear Creek High School, the lady Huskies scored a 28 through the top four finishers and won. The closest team, Middle Park, earned a 37.

  • Demon football outpaces Lobos

    By Mike Vidakovich

    GLENWOOD SPRINGS — On a warm Friday evening that felt more like summer than fall, the Glenwood Springs Demons took care of their football business by defeating the Conifer Lobos 41-20 to garner the first win of the 2018 football season.

     “I told the kids on Monday that I just wanted to hear them sing that Demon fight song,” said head coach Pat Engle following the game. “I got to hear the fight song tonight. This is a special place to coach football.”

  • Evergreen squeaks out victory at...

    WHEAT RIDGE — The Evergreen tennis team is off to a hot start.

    Following a 4-3 victory against Wheat Ridge at Everitt Middle School on Thursday and a subsequent loss at Steamboat Springs, the Cougars sat at 4-2 on the season.

    Much of that talent comes from freshmen, a far cry from the norm in varsity sports.

  • Conifer softball wards off the...

    EVERGREEN — Not many teams have given Conifer softball a run for its money this year.

    And after last year’s 20-9 victory over Evergreen, the Lobos didn’t really expect the Cougars to bring their A-game.

    But they did.

    After going down early on their home field on Sept. 12, the Cougars honed in on their offense mid-game, even though it wasn’t enough in the end. The No. 6 Lobos (per Monday’s CHSAANow.com poll) won 8-4.

  • Evergreen football upsets Mead

    By Michael Kelly

    EVERGREEN — When Mead’s first field-goal try was short and wide, the Evergreen football fans went crazy and the bench started to celebrate.

    But a technical issue with the clock gave the Mavericks another chance. Then another. Like the movie “Groundhog Day,” the Cougars had to replay the ending repeatedly.

  • Platte Canyon football hangs on...

    By Levi Waddell

    BAILEY — After a tough opening-week loss to Buena Vista the week before, the Platte Canyon Huskies bounced back in a big way this past Saturday. 

    In a back-and-forth contest that saw both teams fighting for every yard, the Huskies came away with the 12-0 victory over the Wiggins Tigers. Although the Huskies defense pitched a shutout, it looked as if it was going to be in a hole early on.
