  • Cross country teams perform on and off the course

    The Running Rebels have qualified for State a school record three years in a row while the Lady Rebels have their own school-record streak of five years going, but the most recent accolades for these teams only slightly have to do with that success.

    The KHSAA and the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association (KTCCCA) have released their State All Academic Teams for the 2017 season - there are a bunch of Casey County names.

  • Rebels football turns in another historic season

    While the second-round, 44-41 loss to Powell County still stings, there is plenty to help the Casey County Rebel Football team keep their heads held high like finishing a Casey record 6th in the AP poll.

    This is a team that had just come off a historically magical season in 2016 and, outside of those associated with the program, there weren’t many lining up to say that the 2017 installment would be knocking on the record book door.

    Instead, before the ink could dry on records by the 2016 team, the 2017 squad made their own adjustments.

  • Tucker, Rebels run over Jackson County, 49-14

    On senior night, after a few mishaps, the football Rebels took control and never looked back against Jackson County.
    Though Casey struck first, it took a couple drives to get going.

  • Rebels blank 6A Jtown 36-0 on the road

    In the Steve Stonebraker era, the Casey County Rebels offense has been all over the state rankings whether it be individuals or the team, but in the school’s first win over a 6A football program, it was the defense that took top billing.
    On the road Friday night, the Rebel defense held the Chargers of Jeffersontown to a big zero on their scoreboard as Casey got their fourth win of the season, 36-0.

    Hickory Hills Country Club is the home course for Lady Rebels Golf and last weekend Casey kept the hardware at home finishing first overall out of eight teams at the Lady Rebel Invitational.

  • Casey looking to make history in J-town

    After a bye week, the Casey County football Rebels will be traveling to the Louisville area to take on a 6-A football school in the Jeffersontown Chargers.

  • CCHS seniors 4-0 against rival Russell County

    The Casey/Russell rivalry had to play a day early this year due to weather conditions and for the first time this season the Rebels' opponent struck first.
    It only took a Russell County score and a quarter of game play for Casey to shake off the change in routine, but once the nine-yard touchdown from Austin Campbell to Dustin Richards put the Rebels on the board almost half-way through the second quarter, coach Steve Stonebraker’s crew never looked back.

  • Lady Rebels soccer looking for first win

    The Lady Rebels had a tough couple of games on the pitch in the last week.
    On Thursday night, at Wayne County, Casey dropped a close one to the Cardinals 3-0, but it was an improvement to last year’s match.
    “We did step up our game,” acting coach Mike Fair pointed out. “Last year the game ended up a 7-1 loss, this year the game ended 3-0. Sounds to me like we are improving. As a team, every player has stepped up their defense.”
    At Lincoln County, Monday night, the defense had a tough match, falling 10-0 to the Lady Patriots.
