DECA Competition  


At the end of April, 5 Evergreen students attended the International DECA competition in Orlando, Florida and competed against over 10,000 DECA members from all 50 states, Washington DC, Canada, China, Germany, Guam, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Spain. Throughout the 4 day competition, students took multiple choice tests, gave oral presentations, and participated in role-play competitive events. Students also had the opportunity to engage in the Emerging Leader Series which emphasizes 21st century skills in the areas of collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity and visit college and career exhibits. In their free-time, students visited Universal Studios, met the thousands of other DECA members, and enjoyed beautiful Orlando.

Weekly Sport Highlights

Girls Soccer

We are so proud of our lady cougars as they advanced to the state final championship game this past Wednesday.  Training hard all season, our lady cougars were well prepared and ready to battle Cheyenne Mountain. Cheyenne Mountain ended up winning 2-1.  There is no reason to be disappointed as our girls soccer team has had an incredible season. With great leadership from Coach Jeans and his staff, our girls soccer team had a lot of fun this season, while still competing at a top level.  Congratulations on a great season girls!!!


Baseball

Congratulations to our baseball team for a great season!  The team finished 3rd in the conference with an overall record of 14-10 this season.  They made it to the playoffs and battled Silver Creek last Saturday. They lost to Silver Creek, 8-2, but the positivity and morale coming out of this season was apparent as Coach Lipka and Mr. Ramaker addressed the boys in their post game huddle.  We are excited for what the future brings to our baseball program. Well done gentlemen! Also, thanks to the entire coaching staff and parents for their support throughout the season!


Girls Golf

Much thanks to Coach Malpass and her staff for a wonderful season!  Coach Malpass, in her first year as our girls golf coach, led our lady cougars to a 5th place tie at the CHSAA 4A State Girls Golf Championship at Pelican Lakes Golf Course in Windsor.  The Championship was shortened to a one-day 18 hole event due to several inches of snow and cold temperatures on Tuesday. Evergreen was led by Sophomore Riley Roberts, who shot 93 on the 5782 yard Par 72 course. Senior Kate Lisle shot 94 and Junior Lainey Urbas had a 105.
