  • EHS’ Tenney, Holley soak in...

    This year’s 4A state girls golf tournament on May 19 and 20 could be viewed as a changing of the guard for the Evergreen Lady Cougars. Senior Madison Tenney left one final impression before moving on to college, while freshman Natalie Holley is just getting her feet wet.
    Tenney carded a 35-over-par 179 to tie for 27th place, while Holley tied for 51st with a 50-over 194 at the Country Club of Colorado Springs.


    Nick Kapande has a wish. He wants to see more pitching prospects developed in Colorado so that they can make it to the pros. That, as much as anything else, is why the owner of Nick’s Pro Fitness brought Randy Sullivan’s ARMory Power Pitching Academy boot camp to Evergreen on May 24-25 for a camp about injury prevention and increasing velocity.
    “It’s about throwing correctly so that you can throw harder,” Kapande said.

  • Walking into springtime at...

    Winding along the road to Reynolds Park in Conifer, bright green leaves popping out of aspen branches are a welcome sight after a long, cold winter that didn't want to quit. After arriving at Reynolds and heading onto Oxen Draw Trail, you notice that the woodland park is alive with springtime activity. Birds perched in high trees call to each other, and delicate wildflowers are blossoming brightly on the forest floor.

    Spring has returned!

  • It’s difficult to discern the...

    Two weeks ago, we had a small group of 15 glossy ibis at the lake, and I promised to write about them this week. The glossy ibis is usually divided into two subspecies: the glossy ibis in the East and the white-faced glossy ibis in the West.

    However, the problem lies in the fact that the birds are identical except for the white feathers at the base of the bill in the white-faced glossy ibis. Sometimes this is present in western birds but only in small amounts, and sometimes not at all. Therefore, it is difficult to positively name the western birds.

    AURORA — It doesn’t matter which sport you are competing in It is always difficult to beat the same team three times in the same season. Evergreen’s varsity baseball season came to an abrupt end May 17 as the Cougars failed to defeat Green Mountain for a third time this year.
    The Rams won 8-2 as part of the double-elimination 4A state tournament at Cherokee Trail High School. This season was special for the Cougars (18-5).

    COLORADO SPRINGS — For all of the first half and most of the second, the Evergreen Lady Cougars proved they belonged in the 4A state girls soccer quarterfinals, even if their No. 24 seeding may have indicated otherwise. But, eventually, all good things do come to an end.

    ARVADA — The last time Madison Tenney played at Indian Tree Golf Club she posted her highest score of the 2014 season. She topped that score four days later at The Club of Rolling Hills. But in the week prior to the 4A Metro West Regional on May 8 she prepared herself for what Indian Tree had to offer. Whatever she did it worked.
    The Evergreen senior carded a 5-over 79 to finish third, earning her third straight trip to the 4A girls golf state tournament.
