  • Evergreen Newspapers’...

    As we get ready to say hello to 2009, I decided to drop one last surprise on you, the reader, in 2008.

    Typically, the last paper of the year features a look back at the top stories of the past 12 months. Personally, I find that angle to be stale, so I thought it would be fresh and fun to try something new.

  • Melton rose to the occasion

    One of the better football players in the state would rather be playing baseball.

    Andrew Melton isn’t afraid to admit that. And a lot of opposing coaches in Class 4A probably wished he never ran the ball this year for the Dakota Ridge Eagles.

  • Fortunate bounce carries Eagles...

    Sometimes, the best goal in a hockey game is not always the one that is remembered.

  • Conifer upsets Widefield

    The Conifer boys just might be on to something.

    A season after graduating an iconic group of talent, the "new" Lobos are on their way to establishing their own identity. Just keep that program handy as you learn their names.

    Behind the steady dribble penetration of sophomore guard Gus Womeldorph, the rebounding of Stephen Theiss and C.J. Danks, the hustle of Kalvin Winter and the all around play of the Tadlock brothers, the Lobos rolled Widefield 57-53 in a Class 4A nonleague game Dec. 19.

  • Rebels take third at invite

    Depending on whom you ask, the enthusiasm among Columbine’s wrestling team members can waiver.

    The team did take third place in its own Columbine Invitational, which they hosted on Dec. 13. But, some of the wrestlers’ youth does show through when they are questioned individually.

  • Effort is there; points still...

    The effort is most certainly there.

    In the absence of 6-foot-8 senior center Connor Osborne, Columbine’s boys basketball team has compensated for the loss of their stud player by playing ultra-aggressive defense, hustling to loose balls and running an efficient offense.

    Only one element is missing – and it’s a big one.

  • Falcons fly to first-ever state...

    In the beginning, the smile didn’t come easy.

    Abbie Daurio is by no means an evil girl; quite the contrary, she’s very polite and nice when you talk to her.

    But, when she decided to take up cheerleading three years ago, it was the smile that always seemed to trip her up.

    “I was focusing so much on getting the routines down that I would always have a hard time with it,” Daurio said.

    The smile comes much easier now for Daurio, and, most likely, for the rest of the Front Range Christian School cheer team.

  • Rebels fall to Falcons

    The effort is most certainly there.

  • Chargers topple Rebels

    Jeffrey Harris had one person to thank for his hat trick Dec. 3 against rival Columbine.

    "My dad," the Chatfield junior said with a hint of a grin.

    Harris got crossways with his father, who implemented a one-period suspension for his son. When Harris made bail he needed a little more than six minutes to score his first goal and spark Chatfield to a 6-2 season-opening victory over the Rebels before a standing-room-only crowd at The Edge Ice Arena.

  • Chatfield runs past Chaparral

    Try on this logic for size: The Chatfield Chargers whipped the Chaparral Wolverines on Dec. 4, just two days after the Wolverines took the two-time Class 5A defending champion East Angels into overtime.

    So that must mean the Chargers are way better than the top-ranked Angels, right?

    Welcome to prep hoops in early December.
