  • Rebels looking to improve after...

    The Casey County High School Rebels opened their season with a frustrating home loss to the Clinton County Bulldogs Nov. 27, by a score of 75-58.

    The young team returns just one starter from its district championship team a year ago, senor Ryan Luna, and Coach Jason Price said that turnovers and small things made all the difference in the loss.

    “It’s a lack of execution, not a lack of effort,” he said. “They played their butts off out there.”

  • Lady Rebels dominate Clinton...

    After a slow start, the Lady Rebels clicked, and then shut down Clinton County in a blowout win 57-18.

    Coach Tara Weddle hopes that the team can continue with this type of win all season, minus the slow start.

    “They scored the same amount of points in the third quarter that they did in the first half,” she said.

    The team returns four starters: senior Myla McGowan, along with sophomores Lauren Lee, Gena Beth Cravens and Natalie Duggins.

  • GCA girls have long road back to...

    In year four (last season), Galilean girl’s basketball took a big stride in winning their first KCAA Region 4 Championship. In the time since, it has felt like a very distant memory.

  • Galilean boys basketball on hunt...

    At the beginning of the 2016-17 season, a third KCSAA State Championship didn’t seem likely for Galilean. The Eagles were off to an 0-4 start and only got back to .500 at the Christmas break. When February came around, the GCA boys who had won the last two State Crowns were a 10-seed that needed a play-in game for even a shot in the KCSAA’s top bracket - the rest is history as the Eagles claimed their third-straight State Title with a historic run.

  • Cross country teams perform on...

    The Running Rebels have qualified for State a school record three years in a row while the Lady Rebels have their own school-record streak of five years going, but the most recent accolades for these teams only slightly have to do with that success.

    The KHSAA and the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association (KTCCCA) have released their State All Academic Teams for the 2017 season - there are a bunch of Casey County names.

  • Rebels football turns in another...

    While the second-round, 44-41 loss to Powell County still stings, there is plenty to help the Casey County Rebel Football team keep their heads held high like finishing a Casey record 6th in the AP poll.

    This is a team that had just come off a historically magical season in 2016 and, outside of those associated with the program, there weren’t many lining up to say that the 2017 installment would be knocking on the record book door.

    Instead, before the ink could dry on records by the 2016 team, the 2017 squad made their own adjustments.

  • GCA boys basketball moves to 3-1...

    After a loss in the home opener put Galilean at 1-1 to start the season, the Eagles took to the road last week.

    It was an important league match up in Somerset with Cumberland Christian Home Educators (CCHE) on Thursday for Galilean. The last time the two teams met, CCHE beat GCA for the first time in recent memory 69-58 (Dec. 8, 2016).

  • Rebel Madness throwing it back...

  • Galilean falls in State...

    The three-time defending KCSAA State Champion Galilean Eagles opened their 2017-18 title defense at home Friday night with a very tough opponent.

    Home school co-op, Christian Education Consortium (CEC), from Louisville lost to Galilean by three in the State Title Game last season and GCA head coach Scott Jones doesn’t shy away from bringing in top teams to face his Eagles.
