  • Diamond Lady Rebs grab 2 wins, improve to 5-3

    After a tough loss at home to Wayne County, the Casey County Lady Rebels took care of business in a big way to bounce back with wins over McCreary County and Prestonsburg.
    “We showed improvement after the Wayne loss,” coach Ashley Dean said. “I’m pushing for growth and coming off the big Danville win last week to the Wayne loss I didn’t see the same effort and drive from the girls. As soon as we started having errors, you could see the girls tensing up and their heads dropping which caused more errors.”

    The other wins in the stretch came at Somerset Thursday as Casey downed the Lady Briar Jumpers 8-1 and on Monday, the Lady Rebels hosted East Jessamine and edged out one of the best teams in the 12th Region, 3-2.
