    The 9th Region Girl’s Golf Tournament, held at Burnside State Resort, was the last week of September and the Casey County girls golf team was able to finish fifth. The top two teams advance to state.

    “I thought we were one of the top three teams there,” coach Brad Vaughn said. “But, we didn’t finish where we should have.”

    Over the weekend, Casey County Cross Country runners traveled to Owensboro for the Fast Cats Classic at Yellow Creek Park hosted by Daviess County and Kentucky Wesleyan University. It was another very large, multi-state event as coach Jon Vaughn continues to put his runners in tough early-season events to see what work remains ahead of the post season races later in the year.

    The Lady Rebels finished fourth of 23 teams despite hot and windy conditions while the Rebels finished 17th of 27 teams.

    The Casey County Middle School football Rebels brought home some first-time hardware to Liberty last Tuesday night. The Rebels were able to win the Central Kentucky Middle School Athletic Conference championship game. Coach Darren Summers had a unique way of pointing out how long it had been since the middle school team had been in the conference championship game.

    “The last time they were in the conference championship game was 1989, losing to Campbellsville with a score of 8-6,” the coach said, “when head coach Darren Summers was in eighth grade.”

    The last two came in the last week taking care of Somerset 3-0 (25-11, 25-22, 27-25) on the road and Lincoln County 2-1 (20-25, 25-20, 25-20) at the friendly confines.

    The Greater Louisville Classic at Tom Sawyer State Park hosted by Eastern High School had more than 5,000 entries across the different levels of competition during the rather large cross country event.

    The Casey County runners represented Liberty well with their times.

    “This was a huge varsity multi-state meet,” said coach Jon Vaughn. “The girl’s team did well overall. One of our top five had a very off day, while a few others had personal bests.”

    After he was asked about joining Christi Thomas on the two-hour Countdown to Kickoff on the UK Radio Network, former Kentucky quarterback Freddie Maggard wasn’t sure what to expect.

    He had never met her and knew she would be the first female to host a pregame radio show for any Southeastern Conference football program if the idea worked.
