The Evergreen girls volleyball team lost a home game on April 23, but the players were all smiles afterwards.
The reason? After the game the team was awarded the Class 4A Jeffco League championship plaque.
In spite of the loss to Golden, the Cougars had already wrapped up the league title with a 7-1 league record. Even better, winning league guarentees the team (8-4) a ticket to the postseason.
Regional tournament play begins Saturday, May1.
It has been a rollercoaster season for Evergreen. Things started out with three straight losses, including a heartbreaker 3-2 defeat to rival Conifer. But the team followed that off by reeling off seven straight league wins, including a clutch 3-2 victory on the road against Golden on March 25.
Even though Golden won the April 23 game 3 sets to 1, it was the earlier meeting in March that counted toward league play.
The relatively young squad — only three seniors — will face Windsor and Thompson Valley in regional play. The Cougars are the lowest seed in their region, but if they manage to win, the team will advance to the 4A state tournament.
Golden also qualified for regional play. The Demons will compete in Region 4 Against Eagle Valley and The Classical Academy.
