    By Seth Kahn

    It was a packed Golddigger Stadium as all of Idaho Springs was in the house Friday night, it seemed, for Clear Creek High School’s homecoming game against the Bulldogs of Byers High School. The Golddiggers entered the contest 2-0, having beaten their opponents by an average score of 35-plus points, and continued their success against the 0-2 Bulldogs with an easy 38-14 victory.

    There’s no denying that Clear Creek High School cross country has been dominant all season long, but with the Davies siblings ready to roll, they’re even more lethal.

    Although the season is still young for the Golddiggers, with just five meets under their belts — including their own meet on Sept. 12 — they’ve shown incredible strength in both the boys and the girls teams.

    And that’s with a weakened roster, as two of the boys are out for now with a knee injury and bronchitis.

    For the past eight years, Clear Creek High School’s football coach Brian Inman has been the big man on campus. Now, with his wife Dana taking over the poms team as a first-time coach, they’re the power couple behind the school’s home football games this year.

    Although the Golddiggers made it official when they hired Dana to take over the program at the beginning of the season, football games have long been family affairs for the Inmans, ever since Brian began coaching 21 years ago.

    ENGLEWOOD — There’s something different about this year’s Clear Creek High School volleyball team. Be it the senior-heavy roster or the heightened level of confidence, but one thing’s for sure: this Golddiggers team has what it takes to make some noise in league play this season.

    On Thursday night at Kent Denver School, the Golddiggers’ match against the Sun Devils spurred the perfect metaphor for their season thus far after bouncing back from a competitive first game to sweep Kent, 3-0.

    BAILEY — Aside from a small lightning delay to start the cross country meet, the Platte Canyon Husky Invitational on Thursday went off without a hitch as visiting Clear Creek High School stole the show, for the most part.

    Overall, the Golddiggers fared well as the girls took first place in the meet, with the boys right behind them in second place. Their top runner on each team, senior Samantha O’Brien and junior Wes Davies, both finished second in their respective races.

    After making waves in last year’s Colorado State Spirit competition, the Clear Creek High School Golddigger poms team is ready to work harder than ever before to get back to the state championship this year.

    In 2016, the Golddiggers finished runner-up in the statewide 2A competition, falling a mere 8.8 points behind Vail Christian for the title. This year, however, they’ll be making another run under the tutelage of first-year head coach Dana Inman.

    After coming off of a successful 7-2 season last year, Clear Creek High School’s football team is running with high confidence heading into the upcoming season.
    “They’ve gotten faster, they’re bigger and they’re stronger,” head coach Brian Inman said. “We’re faster than we’ve ever been as a team. A lot of our team is seniors, and a lot of them started as freshmen or got a lot of playing time when they were freshmen.”
