  • Lady Rebs return most of the team, expecting big things

    The Lady Rebels are gearing up for another successful season under the direction of Head Coach Randy Salyers as Casey lost only one player to graduation, Amanda Johnson. The Lady Rebs will be returning 95 percent of their scoring from last year’s campaign that finished 17-13 and were the 47th District runner-up.
    With most of the team returning, the Lady Rebels have high expectations for this team, but getting and staying healthy may be the biggest obstacle for this group.

  • Rebels looking to capitalize on size and experience with taller, ‘thicker’ team

    The Casey County Rebel basketball team will be looking to improve from last year’s 8-23 effort starting with the Nov. 30 season-opener when the Rebels host Anderson County.
    The Rebels did enjoy some post-season success last year, knocking off top-seeded Rockcastle County in the district tournament and were runners-up for the district title. Casey also made a trip to the 12th Region tournament before falling in the first round.

  • Historic season ends as Rebs fall in round two of playoffs

    “All good things must come to an end.”
    This popular saying was synonymous with Friday night for the Casey County Rebel football team. Casey’s remarkable season, which was highlighted with unprecedented heights and numerous milestones, came to an end as the Rebels (8-4) lost in the second round of Class 3A playoffs, falling 54-34 to Breathitt County.
    The Rebs made the three-hour trip to the mountains of eastern Kentucky to do battle with the three-time state champions as Breathitt County went into the game at 7-4.
