  • Volley Rebs bounce back after Boyle County Invitational

    Before heading off to Danville for the Boyle County Invitational, the Casey County volleyball team had a rough District match on the road with Pulaski County, losing 0-3 (23-25, 16-25, 12-25).
    “They never connected as a team,” said coach Angie McQueary. “We had service errors and PC scored a lot of points off of our errors. I think they let them get in their heads. It’s a mind thing. We had more service errors, we didn’t cover the back row as we needed and didn’t put the ball down when we had it in possession.”

  • Lady Rebels soccer takes two losses to start season

    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.

    “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.”
