  • Digger boys hoops gives Byers a...

    EVERGREEN — The Clear Creek boys basketball team had all the right chances to put away No. 7 Byers (per CHSAANow.com) on Saturday on its own home court, but the Golddiggers’ turnovers threw it away in a 48-42 loss.

    But the effort and intensity never faded from the Diggers’ game play.

  • Clear Creek poms finish ninth at...

    DENVER — The Clear Creek poms team may not have ended its year the way the girls wanted to, but with all the adversity they faced throughout the season, it was a “blessing” that they made it to the state spirit competition in the first place.

    On Saturday morning at the Denver Coliseum, the Golddiggers finished ninth out of 10 2A teams amid tough competition, scoring a 72.53. It was a long road just to make it there.

  • Golddigger boys basketball...

    EVERGREEN — After a sluggish start to the season, the Clear Creek boys basketball team bounced back in commanding fashion with a 72-49 win over Platte Canyon at home on Dec. 5.

    A season-opening 67-26 loss to DSST was just the wake-up call the Golddiggers needed.

  • Digger girls discover offense,...

    EVERGREEN — After rough first games for both the Clear Creek and Platte Canyon girls basketball programs, the Golddiggers bounced back with a 47-31 win over the Huskies on the Digger home court on Dec. 5.

    In Clear Creek’s first game, it lost 28-21 to DSST. Platte Canyon fell to Buena Vista 54-19.

  • Clear Creek girls fall to DSST...

    EVERGREEN — The Clear Creek girls basketball team may have lost a lot of talent after last year, but that doesn’t mean the girls won’t grow into their own as the current season gets into full swing.

    On Saturday afternoon at Clear Creek High School, they never gave up the fight as they fell to visiting DSST 28-21 in their season opener.

  • Knights win opening game against...

    EVERGREEN — The first game is always a good test for what the rest of the year will bring, but that evaluation isn’t always reliable when a team plays its best opponent to start the season.

    On Saturday afternoon at Clear Creek High School, the boys basketball team sparred with DSST Stapleton, a team with height and great talent. The Diggers lost 67-26.

  • Inman resigns as CCHS football...

    For the past nine years, Brian Inman has served as a mainstay for Clear Creek High School as its football coach. Last month, that came to an end when he resigned from the program.

    Just after concluding his final, 6-3 season with a high-scoring win at Jefferson on Oct. 26, and upon finding out that the Golddiggers did not make the cut for playoffs, Inman made the decision to step down.

    He was ready to put the most important thing in his life first.

  • Golddiggers boys hoops looking...

    The Clear Creek boys basketball program will look a lot different this year.

    The Golddiggers have a new coach, a new cast of leaders and a new league to round it out. Scott Haebe, who came over from Evergreen High School — where he coached for two and a half decades — took over the program from John Onago, who was fired mid-season last year.

    Already, he’s been enacting a new style of offense for the Diggers with the high-paced, well-distributed Princeton system.

  • Clear Creek wrestling looking...

    After just barely missing out on state last year, the Clear Creek wrestlers believe they have what it takes to send some kids far this upcoming season.

    Campbell Houston, who competes in the 170-pound weight class, finished fifth in regionals last year. That means he only needed one more win to make it to state. His teammate, 220-pound heavyweight Deyon Wickham, did the same. This year, they think they can finally get over that hump, thanks to their offseason training regimen.

  • Bobcat, lynx or blynx?

    Occasionally, local social media light up with animal-related posts, like elk entwined in netting, lost-and-found pets, and an injured owlet, generating dozens of comments (hopefully all with happy endings).

    Recently, a thread appeared concerning the identification of a “bobcat or lynx.” As it turns out, discerning the difference between the two cats is a bit tricky. First, bobcats and lynx are both of genus “Lynx.”
