  • Depth is a concern for Clear Creek girls, boys in 2014

    The tears literally flowed from Jeff Miller when the Clear Creek cross country coach learned that Katie Sullivan was relocating to Summit. It wasn’t just because she was expected to be the Lady Golddiggers’ third best returning runner, but because she is a great kid in general.

    But Sullivan isn’t back and neither is Grace Diekman, a 2014 graduate who was the team’s No. 3 runner in 2013, leaving some uncertainty in Clear Creek’s pecking order with the cross country season around the corner.

    “We did Disney movies. … We were like the Hollywood version of the Vienna Boys Choir,” Nichols said.
