  • Galilean Eagles take third in...

    Galilean packed up their 10-2 record and took it all the way to Arthur, Illinois over the semester break. The 13th Annual AOC Classic was full of talented teams from several states.

    “This is an event we had been invited to for a few years after meeting the host team at our National Tournament. We decided to take the trip this year to get an early look at how we stack up against teams from outside of our league,” coach Scott Jones said. “I am always looking for ways to keep preparing our team for February and this event seemed like a good fit.”

  • Casey’s Lady Rebs go 2-1 in...

    Facing a top 15 team is tough enough, but facing a top 15 team with a top 70 nationally ranked player will make an already difficult game that much more challenging. That’s what the Casey County Lady Rebels faced on Dec. 27 as they took on future Kentucky Wildcat Blair Green and Harlan County (9-0).

  • Casey boys drop two at KY Bank...

    By Zach Johnson

    The struggles continue for the Casey County boys, as they dropped both games this past week.

    Playing in the Kentucky Bank Challenge at Rowan County, the Rebels played the tournament host Rowan County (7-3) on Dec 22 losing 71-58.

    The next day they faced another tough opponent in Robertson County (6-3) fighting hard but falling short with a 77-65 defeat.

    Information and statistics for both games were not available before press time.

  • Casey girls finish runners up at...

    By Zach Johnson

    The Casey County girls have gotten off to a red-hot start this season (11-1) and that continued this past week. They played in a challenging tournament at the Food Pantry Holiday Classic held at Campbellsville.

  • Undefeated Lady Rebels to attend...

    The 9-0 Casey County High School Lady Rebels had a few hiccups this last week, but were still able to come out with wins versus Rockcastle 59-48 and Allen County-Scottsville 53-49.

    Coach Tara Weddle said in an interview that she is disappointed in how the team played, and that their undefeated record won’t mean much if they can’t get past the first game in the District tournament like last year.

  • Putting up a shot
  • Rough start leads to two losses...

    With limited numbers for girls basketball this season, Galilean was expected to struggle. It was common knowledge that there wouldn’t be any easy games, but what wasn’t known was that most of the struggles would come in the early minutes of recent games.

  • Despite speed bumps, Galilean...

    Expectations are always an interesting part of any sports season. Three-straight State Championships will compound that issue for any team and the Galilean boy’s basketball team is dealing with a bit of that early in the 2017-18 campaign.

    “We will always get everyone’s best game,” coach Scott Jones said. “Every minute of every game, they are going to keep coming and we can’t underestimate anyone.”

  • 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 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.”
