    On the State Championships course at the University of Kentucky during the Kentucky Relays this past weekend, the girl’s 4x800 relay made school history for a second-straight season.

    “It was the highlight of the meet for the Casey County runners,” said coach Jon Vaughn. “They had broken a very old record last year and I had told them that it would be very tough to re-break it. But, again, they like to surprise me. Their 10:16 effort was good enough to set a new standard.”
