  • A gut-wrenching defeat:...

    EVERGREEN — The physical evidence of frustration was easy to see, according to first-year girls soccer coach Emma Phipps.

    Clear Creek players put their hands above their heads, and the grimace of agitation crossed their faces. But the Golddiggers kept fighting. They never lost hope, not until there was no hope left.

    For many of the Clear Creek track athletes, Thursday’s Joe Shields Invitational in Kremmling represented their final outing of the season.

    LITTLETON — The chances came in waves for the Clear Creek girls soccer team.
    Down 1-0 in the second half, the Golddiggers battled the weather as well as Front Range Christian, but neither deterred them as the clock ticked.
    “There’s an adrenaline rush. The whole team feels it,” Clear Creek senior Samantha O’Brien said. “When we get those chances, we think, ‘Get another one. Get another one.’”

  • With Judge, lacrosse finishes...

    EVERGREEN — Going into the April 30 game against Evergreen at home, the Clear Creek lacrosse team was coming off its first win of the season and looking to earn its second.
    Evergreen, though, was a formidable opponent. In the end, the Cougars downed the Golddiggers 18-5 as Clear Creek fought through a litany of injuries. The next win would have to wait one more day.

  • Digger soccer falls 10-1 against...

    EVERGREEN — Even with a powerful shooter in its arsenal, the Clear Creek girls soccer team was unable to stop Denver Christian’s offensive weapons Thursday afternoon. The team allowed eight goals in the first half.

    While the Golddiggers rallied in the second half — only allowing two more goals and scoring one of their own — Denver Christian left Clear Creek High School with a 10-1 win.

  • Gorenstein steps down as girls...

    For the past five years, Marc Gorenstein has built success in his Clear Creek girls basketball family, helping lead it to its first state championship appearance this year. But now, it’s time for him to start a family of his own.

    “They’ve been my family. They’ve been my family when we couldn’t have one of our own,” Gorenstein said. “As I told the girls (Thursday) night, I put my heart and soul every single day into trying to get better, and I enjoyed every moment that we had together.

    EVERGREEN — Saturday just wasn’t Clear Creek baseball’s day.

    After hitting the 70s earlier in the week, the temperature hovered in the low 40s for most of the day with a strong wind, making the air feel colder. The Golddiggers played two games in football weather, first to Front Range Christian (23-8 loss) and then to Platte Canyon (25-15), dropping both but not their spirits.

  • CCHS offers boys hoops position...

    After nearly three decades coaching the boys’ basketball team at Evergreen High School, head coach Scott Haebe has decided to take his talents to nearby Clear Creek High School.

  • Clear Creek taking 'pitch...

    The Clear Creek High School baseball team may be inexperienced, but the Golddiggers are confident they can make some noise as the season wears on.
    Starting off 2-4 may not seem ideal, but head coach Stan Gould is content with where his team is this early in the season.

  • With four sports, Zabel found...

    It seems like Sydney Zabel can do it all.

    In following suit with much of this year’s exceptional senior class at Clear Creek High School, Zabel has learned to juggle four sports with a high grade-point average and participates in multiple clubs.

    Most notably, Zabel helped make history this year for the girls basketball team just a few weeks ago. Prior to this season, no Golddigger basketball team, boys or girls, had ever made it past the Sweet 16 regional round.
