  • Galilean boys pass two tough...

    The Galilean Eagles are beginning to settle in as the season hums along. Thursday night, they hosted a highly touted Glasgow squad anchored by a big front line while on Monday night at LIGHT they faced a pair of skilled guards.

    “It really was two different types of tests for us,” coach Scott Jones pointed out. “We hadn’t faced a team with that much length (against Glasgow) this season and LIGHT has a great young guard to go with some veteran front-court play. My boys rose to the challenge, but we showed some things we need to work on too.”

  • Rebels drop Pulaski game, trying...

    During the Pulaski County game Dec. 8, the Casey County Rebels (0-4) were visibly frustrated.

    Players on the bench, along with Coach Jason Price, were disturbed by what they were seeing. The team was overwhelmed by the Pulaski starting lineup, who scored nine points to zero before Price called a timeout. At the end of the first quarter the score was 25-10.

    Pulaski forced turnovers and limited Casey to single digit scores in the second quarter, with the Rebels facing a 57-14 deficit at the half.

  • Lady Rebels undefeated through...

    The Lady Rebels have begun the season undefeated (6-0) after dominating Pulaski County at home 69-20 and at Knox Central 63-36.

    Coach Tara Weddle, in an interview after the Pulaski game, said that the key so far to the young team’s success has been its ability to share playing time.

    When a starting player comes off the court, a bench player picks up right where the starter left off.

    “There’s no decline in the gameplay,” she said.

  • Galilean girls lose two at KCAA...

    This last weekend, the Galilean Lady Eagles opened league play after nearly a month since opening the season at home against CEC.

    “The way that the schedule worked out, we had that first game and then several weeks before getting to the league season,” coach Scott Jones said. “We were able to work on some things and have a little break after the volleyball season. We don’t normally get much chance to do that.”

    That break is over as league play got into full swing at the KCAA Holiday Tournament in Louisville last Friday and Saturday.

  • Galilean Eagles go 2-1 in last...

    In a home game and two match ups on the road in the last seven days, Galilean boys basketball cruised to a pair of wins and lost a tough test in Louisville.

    “I see that we are growing in some areas,” coach Scott Jones said. “I know that we have a lot to fix between now and February, but if we can come together this team can do some big things.”

    Last Tuesday, Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg came to town and GCA had little trouble taking care of business at home in a 97-62 win.

  • Casey boys fall to North Laurel...

    The Casey County Rebel boy’s basketball team traveled over to London last Friday evening to take part in one of the State’s best basketball showcases - the Legacy Nissan Classic. The Rebels squared off with host North Laurel.

    “It is a prestigious event,” coach Jason Price said. “We got to play there last year and It was an honor to be invited again. It is always good to go to an event of that caliber.”

    The Jaguars boast a much more experienced roster this season while Casey has quite a bit of growing to do.

  • 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.”
