  • Casey boys XC hopes to continue...

    When the Running Rebels of Casey County cross country broke into the top 20 two years ago, it surprised their coach.
    Last season, taking ninth in the state was a “feather in the cap” of a boys program that struggled to reach the state meet just two years prior. Now, senior Noah Brown will try to lead this edition of runners back to another chance to be one of the best in the state.

  • Girls XC hungry for hardware in...

    The last four years have been very successful for the ladies of Casey County cross country with four trips to state and a fourth-place finish in 2015.
    Two runners have been part of all four state teams while others have multiple appearances as well.
    Coach Jon Vaughn has been saying for years that 2017 and 2018 will be the years he expects this team to really make some noise.
    With the success of the last four years in tow, get out a decibel meter, it’s about to get loud.

  • Expectations high for Casey...

    It was historic, it was amazing, but it’s over.
    2016 will be a football season talked about for a long time in Casey County, until one day some hardware gives folks a more historic season to talk about.
    As for the 2017 Rebels, they will play with something few, if any, Casey teams before them have ever had to play with — a top 10 ranking.

  • Senior-led Volley Rebs look to...

    A four-match winning streak that led to a district championship appearance at the end of a 16-10 campaign in 2016 highlighted a year in which Casey County volleyball posted the second-most wins in the 12th region.
    2017 will go as far as this experienced group of seniors will take them.
    “I have six seniors this year and all of them will have a major impact,” coach Angie McQueary said. “They can do great things, and expectations are high with this group.”

  • Girls soccer expects to overcome...

    The decision was made months ago to have coach Loren Pennington step down as the Lady Rebels soccer coach to focus on building the young boys program after coaching both squads last season.
    Denise Baier was named the head coach and began working with the girls. At the end of last week, Baier stepped down.

  • In year two, boys soccer wants...

    2016 was the first season of boys soccer at Casey County High School.
    Gone from that team are seven seniors and a foreign exchange student. Five of the nine goals last season came from that group.
    In year two, goal one for the Rebels will be to get the program’s first win as coach Loren Pennington gets to focus on just one team this time instead of having to juggle coaching both the girls and boys squads as he did last season.

  • Summer Slam a hit for Casey...

    The heat of summer is synonymous with many things. Swimming, cookouts and of course, baseball and softball.
    The two teams at Casey County High School came together to host a fundraising event Saturday, July 15, and Summer Slam was an instant hit.
    “We had a great turnout,” Casey softball coach Ashley Dean said. “It was an awesome day spent at Gateway Park. It was a fun fundraiser for both teams.”
    The event was a 10-and-under fast pitch softball tournament that included a homerun derby. There were two pool-play games for each team.
