  • Lee and Weddle represent Casey...

    It was a cold, blustery day in Lexington on Saturday, but that didn’t stop Jenna Lee and Nolan Weddle. The pair represented Casey County High School in the Kentucky State Cross Country Meet held at the Kentucky Horse Park. Lee finished 72nd in the Class AA girls’ meet while Weddle was 74th in the boys’ meet.

  • CCHS golf teams hold season...

    The Casey County golf teams held their season-ending awards banquet at the Hickory Hills Country Club Nov. 11. Five girls and 12 boys were honored by family, coaches, and boosters.

    Boys coach Audrey Rousey opened the awards portion of the banquet by thanking the parents, boosters, administration, and athletics director Victor Black for their support. Rousey added that she was also very appreciative of the help from the staff of the country club.

  • Friday Morning Quarterback 11-21...

    I suppose some people think I am an ostrich. I have been accused on occasion of burying my head in the sand without any real knowledge of what really goes on inside Casey County sports. Just because I often choose not to dignify hearsay and rumors with an answer, I am sometimes perceived as either not knowing what goes on or listening too much to coaches and administrators.

  • Bobbie Vest knows how to make...

    The 41-year-old mother of two and grandmother of one has been hunting deer for the past seven seasons and has taken six animals with six shots. This year, Bobbie Vest harvested her largest buck yet, a 14-pointer on family property on Goose Creek.

    “We didn’t have it measured, but it is probably in the 140s at least,” said Vest’s husband, Tommy. “I killed a small 7-pointer. Its whole rack was about the same size as one side of hers. She has outdone me on the last two.”

  • Rebels end season with 58-6 loss...

    Mercer County took advantage of a short field for most of the first half to build a 38-0 halftime lead en route to a 58-6 victory over Casey on Friday night. The Titans’ average starting field position for the first two quarters was the Rebel 29 yard line.

    “We killed ourselves early with field position,” Coach Andy Stephens said. “Our special teams have not played well for us this year and that was evident in the first half.”

  • Friday Morning Quarterback 11-14...

    Last Friday night marked the end to one of the most enjoyable football seasons I have had since working for the Casey News. Besides the 2002 and '03 seasons, I cannot remember any that have brought me more pleasure. The Rebels might have only won two games, but they leave us plenty about which to be excited.

    First and foremost, we have not had a team to win more than three games since 2003. During that span, Casey football teams have compiled a record of 11-40, so why would a two win season be reason for elation?

  • Sports Talk

    I have been covering high school sports for seven years now and for five of those seven years senior Jenna Lee and junior Nolan Weddle have been the face of the Casey cross country team. There have been some other good runners, but as the old saying goes, “The proof is in the pudding.” On Saturday, the duo qualified for their fifth consecutive Kentucky State Cross Country meet.

  • Lee and Weddle qualify for state...

    For the fifth time in five years, Jenna Lee and Nolan Weddle have earned berths to the Kentucky state cross country meet. Both runners qualified as individuals in Saturday’s regional meet at Anderson Dean Park in Harrodsburg.

    The duo each qualified for the first time in 2004 and have been back every year since. They will be running at the state meet this Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.
