    Blue and gold cloths adorned the table and an NCAA basketball sat between them as Katie Vieweg and Anna Schwecke, Clear Creek High School teammates for the past four years, signed their letters of intent to play collegiate basketball — Vieweg to Colorado Christian University and Schwecke to the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs.

  • Diggers’ Sarria already among...

    For Clear Creek freshman Noah Sarria, just the thought of being one of the state’s top 100-meter runners this early in his high school career is exhilarating. It’s also a challenge to get even better.

    In Clear Creek’s lone home meet of the season on April 14, Sarria ran a time of 11.94 seconds to place third in the 3A/2A Frontier League meet at Clear Creek High School. Bennett scored a one-two finish led by Danny Warner’s winning time of 11.50. Sarria attributed a slow start to his third-place finish.

    “Moral victories’’ are acceptable up to a point. But the winless Clear Creek boys lacrosse team has had it up to here with them.

    The Golddiggers fell to 0-6 with their third one-goal loss in four games, the latest an 8-7 non-league setback to visiting Vail Mountain on April 11. Previously, Clear Creek had come oh-so-close in double overtime to John F. Kennedy and overtime to Englewood.

    DENVER — A tough defenseman is assessed by how aggressively they cover their man, how closely they walk the line between rough play and personal foul. Clear Creek sophomore Samantha O’Brien — the team’s leading scorer — can attest to that fact after she and her fellow Lady Golddiggers defeated host Kipp Denver 2-1 on April 9.

  • CCHS track & field off and...

    Noah Sarria is going to be pretty good. That’s what Clear Creek track and field coach Brian Inman thinks and for good reason.

    The freshman just may qualify for the 2A state meet this season in the 100 meters considering he’s already running 11.6 in practice, which is 0.3 of a second faster than he was timed at as an eighth-grader. Those times are just as fast as what Tevin Lucas, the school’s last state qualifier in the 100, was posting in 2013.

    The following are the all-conference teams for the 3A/2A Frontier League in boys basketball, girls basketball and wrestling for the 2014-15 season:


    Josh Brown, Pinnacle; Sam Allen, Pinnacle; Seth Rodriguez, Bennett; Karl Giessleman, Bennett; Brandon Gonzales, Sheridan; Daniel Martinez, Sheridan; Devan Caswell, The Academy; Maximo Medina, DSST; Mike Robinson, Bruce Randolph; Kenny Michel, Platte Canyon

  • Diggers get in the win column

    The drought ended one game too late to count in Frontier League play. But Clear Creek’s young baseball team wasn’t complaining after Matt McNeil pitched the Golddiggers to their first win of 2015 in a March 28 home doubleheader split with Jefferson.

  • Lady Diggers get on track in the...

    There’s never a good time for an injury, even one that hopefully is as minor as the right ankle sprain that hampered freshman Samantha O’Brien late in Clear Creek’s March 28 game against Arrupe Jesuit. 

    But with spring break on the horizon and the Lady Golddiggers not reliant on their top scorer in the final 11-plus minutes, Clear Creek made the most of the 5-foot-4 freshman’s absence to pull away for a 3-0 victory at CCHS.

    The win snapped a three-game losing streak and sent Clear Creek into the break with a 4-3 record.

    DENVER — It almost seemed unfair.

    The Clear Creek lacrosse team came within 27.1 seconds of winning its first game of 2015 and 5 seconds of sending the March 26 Metro League game against John F. Kennedy into a third overtime.

    Behind the scoring of the brothers Hawkins and stout second-half defense anchored by freshman goalkeeper Chris Burtschi, the Diggers deserved a better fate than the 8-7 loss to the Commanders at All-City Stadium.
