  • VolleyRebs go 3-4 during busy...

    Casey got a district win and claimed a pair of victories during a tournament as part of its busiest week of the season.

    The VolleyRebs defeated Lincoln at home on Thursday night, won two of five at the Lafayette Invitational over the weekend, and then lost at home to Wayne on Monday night.

    “After we play Garrard on Tuesday, we will have played eight matches in six days,” said Coach Rachel Taylor. “We have a heavy schedule now, but it will get lighter as we get close to the district tournament.”

  • Several take trophies in Liberty...

    Despite a three-hour rain delay, the third annual “Liberty Open” ended successfully Saturday as many local Casey County citizens walked away with trophies.

    The tennis tournament is part of the Central Kentucky Tennis Series, being held each summer in eight different counties. This is Casey County’s third year with the series. The tournament is hosted by 2006 Casey County High graduate Justin Martin, now a third-year student at Lindsey Wilson College. It is sponsored by Casey County Bank and Monticello Bank.

  • VolleyRebs lose thriller at Boyle

    The VolleyRebs lost a pair of matches last week as their season record dropped to 3-7. Casey dropped a 2-1 thriller (25-17, 25-22, 23-25) at Boyle County on Thursday after being soundly defeated 2-0 at Rockcastle on Aug. 26.


    Casey has struggled to serve the ball consistently at times this year, but that turned out to be the VolleyRebs’ strong suit at Boyle on Thursday night. Casey was trailing 14-11 in the second game when they rallied behind the serving of Danielle Marples to make a comeback and force a third game.

  • Casey falls to trimble in Henry...

    Trimble County ran for 208 yards and threw for another 158 as they defeated Casey 50-7 in the Henry County Dairy Queen Bowl on Saturday. The Rebels managed just 33 yards of offense on the ground, but threw for 104 yards, including a 65-yard pass play for their only score.

    “We are young and are going to have a lot of growing pains,” said Coach Andy Stephens. “You look out there at times and we have five freshmen on the offensive line.”

  • Friday Morning Quarterback 9-5-08

    It’s good to be back. I haven’t really been anywhere, but have been out of commission for a couple of weeks due to some minor surgery. It seems like ages since I sat down at the computer and banged out a few paragraphs of my opinion.

    A lot has happened in the last couple of weeks and I have made several observations about a lot of things, but I will try to stay on subject here and stick to sports.

  • Casey boys play well at...

    The Rebel golfers lost two close matches last week, but continued to lower their scores. Casey fell 177-172 to Danville at Hickory Hills Aug. 26 and then lost 172-164 to East Jessamine at Connemara in Nicholasville on Thursday.

    “We had a really productive week,” said Coach Audrey Rousey. “I would like to see us play better at home, but we are improving.”

    Luke Beard and Taylor Rousey each had a 41 at Connemara followed by 43 for Kyle Jeffries and 47 for Kyle Weddle. Brad Jeffries had 51, Tyler Sims 54, Justin Underwood 56, and Eric Livengood 57.

  • Lee, Weddle in top 10 at first...

    The Casey Cross Country teams got their respective seasons under way Saturday at the Pulaski-Southwestern Invitational at GE Field in Somerset. The Rebels had male and female runners in the elementary, middle school, and high school events.

    The varsity race was only 3.2 kilometers instead of the normal 5K and the shorter course threw the Casey runners off their normal pace. Jenna Lee still managed a top ten finish for the girls while Nolan Weddle finished in the top ten for the boys.

  • Cross country runners open...

    The good news for first-year cross country coach Matt Willoughby is that he’ll have the top two runners from last season back to anchor the team this year, and both have qualified for the state meet the last four years.

    The bad news is one of those is the lone senior on the team, and the numbers are small for the Rebels this year.

    “It looks like we are going to have about 20 athletes competing this year, but we still have some coming out. This number could go up,” Willoughby said.

  • Boys 7 strokes better in win...

     The Rebels went 1-1 on the links last week, notching a home course win against East Jessamine Aug. 19 and falling on the road Thursday at Lincoln County.

  • Delk wins 2008 Hickory Hills...

     Mike Delk captured the Hickory Hills Country Club 2008 Senior Championship on Aug. 16. Delk finished the 18-hole tournament with a 2-over-par 74.
