Creek is rising in Tiffin

TIFFIN— After a dismal 0-6 record as a start to the 2011-2012 season, Steve Ottoson’s Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clipper boys appear to be on a roll. The squad ended 2011 with a home win against Mid Prairie and carried that momentum into the new year with a pair of back-to-back wins.
The Creek boys pounded Independence on the road Tuesday, Jan. 3, and returned home for a visit from the West Branch Bears on Thursday, Jan. 5. CCA took the 59-47 non-conference win.
“It’s a good win against a very good team,” Coach Ottoson said, basking in the afterglow of victory.
