  • 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.

  • Arrupe Jesuit beats Clear Creek...

    DENVER — It was only one game, according to Clear Creek senior tri-captain Abbigayle Gothman, but Saturday’s girls soccer season opener versus Arrupe Jesuit at Bruce Randolph High School was more than just that. It was the winds of change, sort of.

  • Coming back stronger: Baseball...

    With baseball season right around the corner, Clear Creek High School has plenty to look forward to, including a lot of changes.

    With the returning talent of former ace George Hogan — who sat out last season with a broken femur — the Golddiggers will look stronger on the mound than they did last year, a trend head coach Stan Gould hopes will continue through the end of their rigorous schedule.

  • Reaching new heights: Davies...

    Although Ceci Davies is young, she still can climb above the rest.

    During the last weekend of February, the Clear Creek sophomore won the girls’ title in her first ever state climbing competition through the American Interscholastic Climbing League, a club level sport.

    The ASCL held the competition at the Übergrippen in Denver this year.

  • Clear Creek boys hoops ends...

    Going into a year with a new coach and the loss of two key seniors, the Clear Creek boys basketball team faced great uncertainty about how this season would pan out.

    With a 66-49 loss to Fowler in the 2A Region 8 tournament on Friday night at Vail Christian, it all came to an end. But the Golddiggers still managed to finish with a winning record, 12-11, under first-year Clear Creek coach Scott Haebe.

    For senior standout Lucas Gerding, the heightened win percentage was all that mattered. After all, most of the team consisted of sophomores with just four seniors.

  • Digger girls hoops ends season ...

    EVERGREEN — In a season defined by a new team’s ability to adapt to a first-year head coach, Clear Creek girls basketball saw great growth from game one until its final matchup in the district tournament last week.

    On Feb. 19 on their own home court, the Golddiggers — seeded No. 6 in 2A District 4 — fell to No. 7 Front Range Christian 39-37 due to costly mistakes. They finished the season 7-16.

  • Clear Creek ski team ends season...

    Even in the most unfavorable conditions, the Clear Creek skiers proved they can hang with the best in the state.

    Through adverse conditions on Thursday and Friday, the Golddiggers competed in the Colorado state skiing competition in Durango and finished 12th out of 15 teams, scoring 244 points between the slalom, giant slalom, classic 5K and skate races.

  • Digger boys hoops qualifies for...

    EVERGREEN — Lucas Gerding wasn’t ready to play his final high school boys basketball game and with a loss on his home court at that.

    “I just came into the game with a mentality that it was them or us, them or us after tonight,” the Clear Creek senior said. “I’d much rather that it be them than us.”

  • Digger girls hoops drops senior...

    EVERGREEN — When it comes to streaky basketball, a dry spell can sometimes hurt a team enough that it’s hard to recover. On Thursday night at home, the Clear Creek girls basketball team felt the weight of its own offensive inefficiency in a 42-35 loss to Dayspring Christian on senior night.

    Although the Golddiggers managed to work their way back into contention by the third quarter, a 1-point first quarter proved too much of an obstacle to overcome.

  • Digger grapplers end season at...

    Amid a tough season for the Clear Creek wrestling team, two Golddiggers managed to make it all the way to the 2A Region 3 tournament last weekend in Akron.

    For head coach Stan Gould, that was a positive way to end the year.
