  • Boys 4x800 highlights state meet for Casey

    In a season of record-breaking performances, it is only fitting that Casey County track and field saw another school record fall en route to bringing four State medals home to Liberty from the KHSAA 2A State Track and Field Championships in Lexington over the weekend.

    “This team made me proud once again,”coach Jon Vaughn said. “Their dedication and effort was very prevalent at State.”

    The girl’s team was highlighted in the field events as Brenna Hayes medalled in both of her events.

  • Historic season ends in state’s first round for girls tennis

    Coach Marvetta Overstreet had a little trouble getting started putting the first 20-win season in Casey County girl’s tennis into perspective, but was able to sum it up very nicely ahead of talking about how her top single’s and double’s players finished up at the KHSAA State Championships last weekend.

    “Normally, my words flow freely,”Overstreet said. “This week, however, I'm struggling. I don't know if I'm somehow trying to hold onto these senior players, or if I'm just so tired because it has been a long season.”

  • Casey takes runner-up at 12th Region tourney

    As the 12th Region Girls Tennis Tournament entered semi-final play, three Casey County Lady Racket Rebels were still in the field.
    With State Tournament bids secured, it was all about Region hardware. Casey would take runner up as a team and play some very competitive tennis in the final two days of the event.
    Amber Pierce dominated her way through the first three rounds at Regionals setting up a date with the number-two seed in the tourney from Boyle County, Anna Duncan.
    Pierce gave Duncan all she wanted in a heavily-contested, semi-final match.

  • Lady Diamond Rebs fall in back-to-back games

    The offense has looked good at times, the defense has looked good at times.
    In 10 games they looked good together, but in three-of-the-last-four it has been tough.
    The last two games saw the Lady Diamond Rebs come out and take early leads only to lose in both by run rule.
    Despite the tough outings, coach Ashley Dean is sure of what her young team needs to get back to notching some wins with just a handful of games remaining before districts.

  • Casey baseball wins two of last four

    It has been an up-and-down season for Casey Baseball as coach Brandon Hillard has tried to change the culture of the program and try to get some wins to build momentum toward the District Tournament.
    Sloppy play, at times, has been the achilles heel and it reared its ugly head more times than not this season.
    However, the Rebels were just a run away on Monday night of winning three-of-four, but the defense tensed up at the wrong time.

  • Football shows strong defense in spring game

    On May 5, coach Steve Stonebraker shared an early look at the 2017 Rebels with Casey football fans during the annual spring game.
    The weather didn’t cooperate, but football isn’t a sport that worries too much about that.
    The night was broken down into three sections to give fans a good look as there was 30 minutes of first and second-team offense versus scout defense, 30 minutes of first and second-team defense against scout offense, and 45 minutes of a Blue versus Gray game.
