  • Amid tragedy, Sarria excels on...

    On senior day at Golddigger Stadium, as the Clear Creek football seniors were greeted on the field by their parents at halftime, one young man, Noah Sarria, was greeted only by his younger sister, Christine. Together, they wept for what that moment meant not only for Noah’s accomplishments, but for what they had lost.

  • Clear Creek ski team looking...

    Clear Creek skiing has always been a beast on the mountain, but this year, the Golddiggers are looking to improve their standings as they prep for their upcoming season.

    After Conradt Fredell stepped down as head coach earlier this year, Brian Inman is taking over the team. He’s got some lofty goals for his skiers in both the alpine and Nordic competitions as the season approaches.

  • Golddiggers fall in first round...

    IDAHO SPRINGS — This season hasn’t always been easy on the Clear Creek football team, but the Golddiggers are still proud of the strides they made. On Saturday afternoon at Golddigger Stadium, it all came to an end when they fell to visiting Monte Vista in the first round of the 1A playoffs, 39-34.

  • All around, in every way

    In his three years at Clear Creek High School, junior Lucas Gerding has learned what it means to be an ideal student-athlete, excelling in both academics and on the field, court and track.

    His love for competition has catapulted him to take on multiple leadership roles in the three high school sports he takes part in, from serving as a point guard in basketball to being a vocal and physical leader in football and in track.

    It all started in grade school on a recreational basketball team.

  • Three Diggers place top 20 at...

    COLORADO SPRINGS — After a long, successful autumn, Clear Creek’s cross country season came to an end on Saturday at the Norris Penrose Center as the Golddiggers boys and girls came out strong in the state competition.

    The Golddigger girls finished eighth out of 14 competing teams, and senior Samantha O’Brien finished in 15th place, improving on her 18th place from last year. The boys team finished 12th of 14 after a long, hard-fought season wrought with injuries, and junior Wes Davies led the effort with a 16th-place mark.

  • Golddiggers erupt in second half...

    LITTLETON — Lucas Gerding would’ve played quarterback if he had to. After all, the junior is Clear Creek’s backup signal-caller. Fortunately, for the Golddiggers on Saturday, he wasn’t asked to until the outcome wasn’t in doubt. Instead, Gerding made his presence — as he has all year long — catching passes from Ty Judge.

  • After ending season, CCHS...

    After a successful year — during which Clear Creek volleyball took a huge step forward from previous seasons — the Golddiggers ended their season on Oct. 24 with a 3-0 loss to Dayspring Christian Academy in the Class 2A District 7 tournament in Greeley.

    But, after finishing with a 12-8 record, there’s plenty to smile about.

  • CCHS XC qualifies boys and girls...

    LYONS — All season long, the Clear Creek cross country team has dominated on the girls’ side and fared well on the boys’ side.

    After a dramatic Colorado 2A Region 1 race on Thursday at Lyons High School, the Golddiggers’ hard work and determination paid dividends as both the boys and girls teams qualified for the state meet this upcoming weekend.

    It’s the first time both teams have qualified in the same year in a long time.

  • Golddiggers take down fumbling...

    IDAHO SPRINGS — In a football battle that had the combined score topping 100, the Clear Creek Golddiggers defeated the undefeated Platte Canyon Huskies 62-42 during Friday night’s senior game.

    With the win, the Diggers (7-1) not only bested the Huskies for the first time since 1998, but they handed Platte Canyon (6-1) its first loss of a very successful season. If anything, they proved just how good they are this year, with their only loss coming against the always-formidable Bennett.
