  • Boys lacrosse sees growth as...

    DENVER — In a season of growth in a relatively new sport to many players, the Clear Creek lacrosse team has seen “tremendous” improvement in just a short time.

    On Saturday afternoon at Bishop Machebeuf High School, some of those improvements shone through early in the Golddiggers’ 15-4 loss.

    Throughout the first frame, the Diggers enjoyed strong ball movement, good ground ball control and solid communication. After the Buffaloes went on a run, however, their efforts were deflated.

    A string of unfortunate injuries left the Clear Creek girls soccer team looking to their freshmen for answers as they went into their first-ever game against the Cornerstone Christian Academy Bulldogs at home on Thursday. 

    The Golddiggers had several good scoring opportunities, but the Bulldogs’ staunch defense held together, and combined with a high-pressure offense, led to a 7-1 defeat for CCHS.

    LONGMONT — Longmont Christian may be one of the best teams in 1A baseball, but they were no match for visiting Clear Creek on Thursday afternoon.

    At Sandstone Ranch, the Golddiggers relied on a strong offense, weakened somewhat by their defense, to knock out the eighth-ranked Warriors (per CHSAANow.com) 9-4 despite a late-game scare.

    LAKEWOOD — Although Clear Creek’s Duncan Emmons has been excelling in the discus competition so far this year, Saturday just wasn’t his meet.

    At Denver Christian School, the Golddiggers sophomore finished 33rd by throwing the disc as far as 67 feet, 6 inches. His season record is 81 feet, which he set the meet before.

    “I’m feeling like I could work on my form a bit more and I could get my chest up while I’m throwing a bit more,” he said after his throws.

    EVERGREEN — Tyler Robertson, with a brace protecting his already hampered right knee, limped off the field at game’s end.

    The Clear Creek tri-captain was unable to play in the final three quarters of the Golddiggers’ home match with perennial state power Dawson School on April 9 after the battered extremity locked up on him early on.

    EVERGREEN — Clear Creek’s bats came to play on Saturday morning.

    On their home field, the Golddigger baseball players entered their rivalry game against Platte Canyon with a fiery offense as they toppled the Huskies in four and a half innings 15-1 to invoke the mercy rule.

    Optimistic may not be a word you’d expect to describe the Clear Creek girls soccer team after its game against Denver Christian High School on April 2, but the Golddiggers exited the field with their heads high and eyes forward.

    The game was cut short after Denver Christian’s Thunder scored 10 goals over the Golddiggers’ zero, but the girls were pleased with their performance despite the final score.

    “Honestly, it went better than I thought,” said Abbey Gothman, a senior at CCHS.

    Clear Creek High School’s wait for a new football coach is over.

    Landon Wright, a 31-year-old offensive coordinator from Texas, will fill the position, replacing head coach Brian Inman who left following the end of last season.

    This will be his first head coaching role as he doubles as a middle school math teacher.

    The 2019 Clear Creek High School boys’ lacrosse team’s 14-1 season-opening loss to Rangeview on Friday shows how the Golddiggers are somewhat unrefined this season, but they might have the most heart, and that goes a long way in sports.

    Head coach Jamey Kittelberger, a former lacrosse player at the University of North Carolina, has been coaching the team since 2017, and he believes the Golddiggers have embarked on the long road to success, and that trek starts with finding the right players.

  • Onago coming into her own as...

    When it comes to high school track and field, Clear Creek’s Crystal Onago seems to be the girl who can do it all.

    Whether she’s flexing her strength in shot put and discus or running 200-meter sprints, the senior leader, who is now in her fourth year in the sport, can always be counted on, according to head coach Brian Inman.

    Onago’s leadership doubles as a contagion for the Golddiggers.
