  • Rebels golf gets a ‘W’

    It is still early in the season, but after a pair of losses got things started, Casey boys golf got off the goose egg and snagged a win over Garrard County despite not having their best day on the course. Benjamin McDonald (44, +8) and Josh Underwood (49) were the only Rebels to shoot in the 40s during the nine-hole match.

    Still finding their stride, the Lady Rebels took the course last weekend in Lawrenceburg to compete against 24 teams at the Joy of Golf Tournament.

  • Lady Rebels soccer takes two...

    It is now year five for the Lady Rebels soccer program at Casey County, but this year is different with several seniors now gone along with a ton of offense from years past.
    This team is also facing a challenge in finding a coach after a change at the top just before the season started.
    “The girls had worked hard all summer,” said interim coach Mike Fair. “They have continued to work hard even after having to adjust. As we continue moving forward we will be successful as a team and improving throughout the rest of the season.”

  • Boys soccer scores three goals,...

    In year two for the program, boys soccer has started with three-straight road games. The Rebels nearly put together their first win in school history in the first match of the year, but a late goal by Clinton County gave the Bulldogs a 4-3 win sending the Rebels back to Liberty still waiting.
    “Getting the season started with three goals was fantastic,” coach Loren Pennington said. “The boys played fair in their first match up. Finding a rhythm together is going to be key.”

    With all the football he watches on the practice field or in the film room, Kentucky secondary coach Steve Clinkscale doesn’t always want to watch football on TV when he gets home.

    Often, though, his wife, Jasena, has a different idea.

    “My wife watches more football at home than I do. I come home and I don’t want to watch football and she wants to watch football all day Saturday and Sunday. I just want to watch TV and relax. But not her. She loves watching football,” said Clinkscale.

    The Lady Rebels golf team had a decent start to the season grabbing third in three-of-four events, but last weekend at Barren County, Casey struggled.

    Expectations are just that, what you think could happen.
    When the Rebels of Casey County golf took to the course Aug. 8 the scores were not what coach Marshall Forbes expected, but despite the lose in match two to Boyle County, he likes where his boys are.

  • Rebels golf will be young in 2017

    The 2017 campaign for boys golf at Casey County High School will have one major theme — youth.
    “This is probably the youngest team that I have coached in my seven years,” coach Marshall Forbes said. “It’s just a young, young team. I am excited about the progress we have made through the preseason work. They have made some strides toward some good things, I am really excited about it.”
    The lone senior is even young, so to speak.

  • Lady Rebels golf holds out hope...

    Compete. It’s a simple message.
    With four young ladies taking to the golf course for Casey County High School this season, that is what coach Brad Vaughn expects as well as opportunities to win some tournaments and, with improvement, a chance at state.
    “Anytime out, we go to compete,” Vaughn said. “We don’t do it for any other reason. We have gotten third in three out of the four tournaments we have played so far. We are doing well, and even at that, we are doing better than what I expected so far.”
