  • Clear Creek starts off league...

    EVERGREEN — From start to finish on Jan. 9, the Clear Creek boys basketball team battled for its first game of league play against Sheridan at home as it walked away victorious, 68-54.

    After a slow start and early deficit to overcome, the Golddiggers found the fire they needed as junior point guard Lucas Gerding caught fire from beyond the arc, only to be fueled even more when senior guard Noah Sarria checked in for the first time near the end of the first quarter. He had been benched to start the game for missing practice.

    By Levi Waddell

Sarria’s layup with 12.9 seconds left gave the Goldiggers a 70-68 lead, which wound up being the final score, as the Falcons’ Ethan Fisher’s game-winning 3-point attempt barely missed the mark.
