  • Lady Diggers run the table

    The girls’ basketball banner hanging in the gymnasium at Clear Creek High School doesn’t have an asterisk next to the 2016 Frontier League championship recognition, but it could. 

    After all, the Lady Golddiggers shared last year’s title with Bennett and Middle Park. This year, there is no sharing.

  • Golddiggers forced to hit reset...

    A season low in points scored and a fifth loss in seven games were good enough reasons, if any, for the Clear Creek Golddiggers to need a reset to the 2016-17 season. 

    Granted, the reset was coming no matter what following the Diggers’ 52-37 regular-season ending loss to Academy on Feb. 14. After all CCHS had a week between that game and its 2A District 7 tournament opener at Dayspring Christian. But if CCHS wanted its season to continue, a change in direction was needed.

  • Mercer verbally commits to ...

    Isaiah Mercer might be headed home.

    The Clear Creek High School senior, who transferred from Rockcastle High in Mount Vernon, Ky., this school year, has verbally committed to play football for the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Ky. 

  • Diggers suffer a defensive...

    Coach John Onago admitted after the game that Clear Creek’s focal point was to slow down Middle Park outside threat Jordan Ehlert. Try as they may, however, the Golddiggers had little success in doing that on Friday night in a 90-80 loss at Clear Creek High School.

  • Lucas, Lady Golddiggers pull...

    As soon as Rachel Lucas snagged the defensive rebound and took off in a full sprint toward the other basket, dropping in a layup with 22.4 seconds remaining, it gave Clear Creek head coach Marc Gorenstein the comfort he needed.

    “They let me breathe,” Gorenstein said.

  • Diggers fail to qualify for ...

    Clear Creek High School failed to qualify a wrestler for this week’s 2A state championships.

    The Golddiggers placed last out of 15 schools at the 2A Region 3 tournament in Sterling on Friday and Saturday. CCHS finished with five points.

    Clear Creek had four wrestlers in the competition — juniors Daniel Mathew (126 pounds) and George Gothman (195) and sophomores Dakota Wollet (132) and Deyon Wickham (220).

  • Letter of intent signing worth...

    One won’t find C.J. Kelly atop the statistics. That was not the Clear Creek senior’s role as one of two team captains for the volleyball program in 2016. She was, however, respected and looked up to by her peers. Now they have another reason to look up to her — she’s off to play college volleyball.

    Clear Creek High honored Kelly on Feb. 1 — National Signing Day — at a ceremony announcing her intentions to play for New England College in Henniker, N.H., in the fall.

  • Conditioning is key for Jessup ...

    SHERIDAN — Matt Jessup is fully aware that his conditioning isn’t where it needs to be if wants to move forward, and, truthfully, it shouldn’t be. After all the Clear Creek senior, who transferred in from Golden High School, just started wrestling the week prior.

  • Lady Diggers come back in the...

    “What is going on?!” echoed Clear Creek girls basketball coach Marc Gorenstein throughout a packed gymnasium as he slammed his clipboard down against the hardwood court. It was during a timeout with  1 minute, 21 seconds left in first period of Lady Diggers’ highly-anticipated game against the Bennett on Jan. 27.

    “We are better than that,” Gorenstein said.

    With the sour taste of their 89-49 road loss to Pinnacle High School on Jan. 23 still fresh in their mouths, the Clear Creek Golddiggers’ boys basketball team and head coach John Onago looked to get off to a better start than the 28-7 first-period hole they dug for themselves just four days earlier.
