All - Every couple years or so I send one of these emails out, and it is my pleasure to do so again tonight! The Evergreen High School Girls Soccer team is on a playoff run and we want your support! We are into the semi-finals of the state playoff this Saturday at 1:30 PM at Shea Stadium in Highlands Ranch, playing against Windsor HS. If we advance to the final, we play the winner of the 11AM semifinal between D’evelyn and Valor Christian. The Championship match would be next Wednesday the 24th, at 5PM at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City.
This is such an easy team to support. They have worked hard and improved so much as the year progressed, have been dedicated to each other and have exhibited terrific sportsmanship. We are led by an awesome group of 11 seniors, and by our three captains, Kate Athenour, McKenna Norton, and Sofia Weiner. Below is a picture of the team, followed by the names of the players who want to get their names etched on that state championship trophy!
The team has played better in each round of the playoffs, beginning with a 4-0 win over Discovery Canyon, then beating Standley Lake 5-1, and Wednesday we beat the #2 seeded Wheat Ridge Farmers by a score of 2-1. It was a fun (and cold and wet) night that propelled us to the state semifinals.
Community support means so much to a team in a playoff run! I hope you all can be our "12th player" over the next week! And…please share this with others and make some noise this Saturday and next Wednesday!
Thanks, and….Go Cougars!

The annual optional winter camp completed on Saturday (2/25) with over 30 girls attending. Multiple parents and players also came early to clear the EHS turf field of snow so that the camp could be put on. Special thanks to Coach Jeans and Kelly Alvis who showed up 3 hours early to get started on the field. Great dedication and tenacity were shown in the shoveling. The metaphor for prepping for a soccer season and clearing the field of snow wasn't missed by any of the participants.

The EHS Girls Soccer team pulled off the first annual mid-winter soccer lock-in Feb 3-4, 2017 and bonded as a team during the process. The team brought in three different groups (D'Evelyn HS, Wheat Ridge HS, and Altitude FC) to scrimmage in the gym over 6 hours on Friday night.
The theme of the night was play, fun, bonding, and Futsal and over 30 girls from the program took part. This is a great turnout for the team considering that basketball, club soccer, jobs, and other events are competing for the girls' time.
The Soccer Boosters would like to especially thank some of the sponsors for the event -- Papa Murphy's Pizza in Evergreen, The Smiling Moose Deli in Evergreen, The Bagelry, and the Muddy Buck for their contributions. Please support our local business sponsors.
