  • Evergreen defeats Conifer after...

    EVERGREEN — The eighth-ranked Evergreen volleyball team wasn’t expecting Conifer to come into it game with high ferocity.

    But, in contrast to last year’s matchup between the two schools, the Lobos came out swinging and gave the Cougars a run for their money. In the end, however, the Cougars won in three sets to put their rivals away.

    LITTLETON — Evergreen may have been one of the smallest teams at Columbine’s big 10-team meet on Saturday, but that didn’t stop the Cougars from giving it their all and making some noise in the competition.

    With 162.100 points, the Cougars took third place behind Pomona (179.750) and Chatfield (164.575). Senior Jackie Fritsche led the charge with a 33.025 all-around score, placing third behind two Pomona gymnasts.

    LITTLETON — The home court advantage favored Chatfield’s volleyball team on Aug. 30 as the Chargers downed Evergreen, 3-1.
    Despite the loss, the Cougars kept their chins up and vowed to push forward.
    “I’m really proud of them,” Evergreen coach Gail Andrews said. “They never gave up, which I’m really proud of them for. There’s a lot of heart in this team.”

  • Conifer football upstages...

    CONIFER — A year ago, Conifer’s football team epitomized the Babes in the Wood tale.
    With eight sophomore starters, the Lobos were sort of like children being led to slaughter, and it was reflected in a 3-7 record.
    They’re not all grown up yet. But after opening the 2018 season with a convincing 35-12 win over Woodland Park on Friday, the Lobos are alive and well — and convinced they’re poised to return Conifer football to its usual lofty status.

  • Evergreen boys golf wins Jeffco...

    ARVADA — Evergreen golf has been rolling this season, and Friday’s Jeffco meet at the Indian Tree Golf Club was no different.

    With an overall score of 317, the Cougars placed first in the 4A competition, led by senior Nolan Miller and junior Clayton Whitton, who both shot a 78 on a par-70 course and tied for third in 4A.

    The course conditions, Whitton said, weren’t the best, and that contributed to a few of the Cougars’ struggles.

  • Conifer takes eighth at the...

    ARVADA — Conifer freshman Cade Rummell, who shot an 82 (11th) enjoyed the Indian Tree course and played it well.

    “(The course) was OK,” Rummell said. “It was fun. It wasn’t like it was too wet or too dry, too fast or really slow.”

    He was five strokes behind the team leader, senior Dakota Dolph (second), who beat out even Evergreen with a 77.

    “I performed pretty well,” Rummel said. “I wish I would have putted better, but I still played pretty good, so I’m happy.”

  • Graziano, Cougars come out...

    CONIFER — By Nick Graziano’s account, his role is to help the Evergreen Cougars score as many goals as possible. The left-footed Evergreen junior did more than his fair share of that in the Cougars’ 7-0 season-opening win over rival Conifer on Aug. 28 at Lobo Field.

    Graziano, a midfielder/forward, scored four goals — three in the first half, including a penalty kick — as Evergreen continued its dominance against its longtime rival.

  • Husky girls win their own cross...

    Throughout much of last season, the Platte Canyon cross country team had a very small, yet talented, team.

    On Thursday at their own home course off of Rosalie Road at the Platte Canyon Husky Invitational, they flexed their muscles as the girls won their race and the boys finished third behind DSST: Stapleton and Clear Creek. Despite a tough course, the girls dominated with 35 team points and the boys scored 73.

    By Levi Waddell

    CONIFER — With multiple momentum shifts, lead changes and a rain delay, there was no shortage of excitement during the top-10 match-up between the Conifer Lobos and Golden Demons softball teams on Aug. 22 at Conifer High School.

    In the end, the No. 7 Lobos weathered the storm and escaped with a 9-8 walk-off win against the No. 2 Demons.

    The Lobos dug themselves in quite a hole early against the Demons. After taking a 4-0 lead after the top of the first, it seemed as if the Demons were going to run away with the game.

  • Tigers were the cooler cats in...

    EVERGREEN — Evergreen football brought the fire and the fury in its first game of the 2018 season, but it was too little, too late.

    On their home field under the Friday night lights, the Cougars fell to 3A’s second-ranked Erie 35-7 after coming out strong against the Tigers in the second half.
