    SHERIDAN — For the second year in a row, the Clear Creek Lady Golddiggers pom squad took first place in the 3A/2A Frontier League championships in dance, besting both Middle Park, as well as host Sheridan with a choreographed dance to the song “We can’t stop,” by Miley Cyrus. The win allows them a bid for another state title on Dec. 10 at the Denver Coliseum.

  • Lady Diggers eyeing continued...

    It’s been a couple of seasons since a group of four seniors — Anna Schwecke, Kaela Kalabany, Katie Vieweg and Claire Werlin — paved the way for Clear Creek’s girls’ basketball program to reach the Sweet 16 of the 2A tournament field. But more than what they did on the scoreboard, that group laid the foundation for this year’s junior class.

  • Golddiggers looking to right the...

    When you’ve won just three games combined the past two seasons — going 3-37 to be exact — and 1-19 a year ago in John Onago’s first year at the helm, there wouldn’t seem to be much in the way of optimism. That’s not what Clear Creek’s boys’ basketball is thinking, however.

  • Diggers fighting the numbers game

    Stan Gould doesn’t have to mince his words. He can look around at wrestling practice and can tell that this year’s Clear Creek team is bare. 

    The numbers validate that. But it’s not the size of the team that will identify the Golddiggers in 2016-17, but the impact on the mat of those on the squad.

    Hugh Miller has never backed down from a challenge since he relocated to the Bailey/Conifer area in 1999. A social studies teacher at Platte Canyon High School, Miller brought with him a strong background in rugby, which he used to found Bailey Youth Rugby.

  • CCHS poms team feeling the beat

    Arms out, left foot forward, a spin to the left that was later altered to one to the right. The practice repetitions are aplenty. 

    Over and over again, the eight team members of the Clear Creek poms squad — there are nine total, but one was sidelined — go over the routine.

  • Trio of Evergreen High swimmers...

    Since they were 7 years old, Kate McDonald, Katelyn Kenchel and Kara Coughlin have been swimming together. They’ve been part of a journey together. College will take them in a different direction, but one more time they were brought together to embrace their future.

  • Building a foundation for the...

    Standing off to the side, crutches keeping him upright as he nursed a broken femur, it was hard for Kiefer Zabel to watch practice. The 13-year-old eighth-grader at Clear Creek Middle School will miss the season — his final season with the Gold Dusters — due to the injury.
    Still, on Nov. 3, his first day back at practice, Zabel was watching the sport that he loves, and he planned on being a part in some capacity or another.

  • Column: CHSAA’s flawed RPI ...

    I’ve got to get this off my chest, and I’m not going to mince my words: CHSAA’s RPI system is flawed. It’s broken. It needs to be tweaked, if not just outright fixed — and fast.
    The system with its calculated setup to account for a team’s winning percentage, its opponents’ winning percentage and that of the opponents’ opponents is noble, but too much weight is put on how well one’s opponents play and that of their own opponents and not nearly enough on how a team does in the win-loss column.
