MORRISON, Colorado – Lawrenceburg's J.R. Todd earned his first Top Fuel win of the season and first since 2008 Sunday at the Mopar Mile-High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway.

Todd, driver of the Team Optima Batteries dragster, trailed Brittany Force at the start of the final elimination run.

Winner of the 2006 Auto Club Road to the Future award, as the NHRA's top-performing rookie driver, he was able to defeat the driver of the Castrol Edge dragster with a run of 3.878 seconds at 317.87 miles per hour, besting Force's 3.968 at 297.35.

It was the second career win at Bandimere Speedway for Todd, who claimed his first career NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series win at the facility in 2006.

His last previous NHRA Top Fuel division championship came at Dallas, Texas, in 2008, ending a record-breaking win streak by Tony Schumacher.

BROOKVILLE – Hanover College cross country and track and field recruit Joe Rector, of Aurora, won his second consecutive Southeast Indiana Racing Circuit (SIRC-it) title in Saturday's Lakeside 5K Run event at Franklin County High School.

So did women's division 5K Run winner Lisa Andi, as well as 5K Walk overall winner Bill Cannon, both of West Harrison.

Rector, 18, a May graduate of South Dearborn High School, clocked the winning time of 17:42 on a perfect cool, overcast morning for running on Lakeside 5K's second year of following its 3.1-mile Brookville street course.

The lanky blond youngster won the 2013 Southeast Indiana Racing Circuit overall leaderboard title with a combined time of 1:27.08 for all five 5K races.

Runner-up Justin Noppert, 38, of Lawrenceburg, third finisher in the previous weekend's Trojan Trot 5K SIRC-it series kickoff, came in at 18:12 Saturday.

Working mom Lisa Andi, 32, women's 5K Run champion in four of the five SIRC-it races in a breakout season a year ago, followed last week's 19:08 winning time at St. Leon with a 19:03, finishing fifth overall among a field of 114 runners at Brookville.

Cannon, 48, topped a slim field of eight race walkers with a 31:43 effort. Cannon swept all five SIRC-it 5K walk races in 2012.

Written by Staff Report   
Monday, July 21, 2014 11:47 AM

YORKVILLE – The Catholic parish, which dates back to 1852, may now be part of the All Saints Church consolidation.

But Yorkville's St. Martin's 5K Country Run - part of the popular St. Martin Church Festival - will extend its tradition for a 34th consecutive year Sunday.

Dearborn County's longest-running road race is scheduled for a 9:30 a.m. start Sunday, rain or shine.

The 3.1-mile course starts in front of St. Martin's Church, proceeding north on York Ridge Road and doubling back. The fast course completely follows asphalt roads, with some small hills.

Race day registration will be $10. Official race t-shirts will be available for an extra $10.

Awards will be presented to the overall men's and women's winners, plus the top three finishers in each age group for men and women, including 14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and over.

St. Martin's signature Most Improved Runner award also will be presented. Candidates must have completed the 2013 race and be pre-registered to qualify. An award for the top Masters runner also will be given.

Modern restroom facilities will be available in the parish hall before and after the race. Water will be available at the start-finish line and on the course during the race. Split times will be given at each mile.

Defending St. Martin's Country Run winners from 2013 include men's overall champion Jordan Brown (18:15) and women's winner Alexandra Stevens (20:25).

Top Masters runner a year ago was Aurora's Jim Rector, with the Most Improved Runner award going to Tony Mapes.

SOUTH ALL-STARS BEAT NORTH IN 48TH GRID CLASSIC -GAME COULD MOVE TO DEC. IN FUTURE
Written by Staff Report   
Monday, July 21, 2014 11:45 AM

INDIANAPOLIS – While there were rumblings about moving the game to a December date, Friday night's 48th annual Grange Insurance North-South All-Star Football Classic saw the South reassert its dominance, 30-2.

Led by 131 rushing yards on 24 carries by Southport's Christian Perry, voted game MVP by the media, South All-Stars marked their fourth consecutive win in the long-running Classic, moving their all-time record to 27-21 over the North.

The annual Indiana Football Coaches Association All-Star game, a benefit for Camp Riley, was played before a crowd of 5,389 at North Central High School.

The 6'1”, 205-pound Perry, who also scored on a two-yard touchdown run with 8:21 remaining in the game, staking the South to a 23-2 lead, came off the field fuming.

 
TOUTED PROSPECT GORDON'S TRANSFER DENIED BY IHSAA
Written by Staff Report   
Monday, July 21, 2014 11:43 AM

INDIANAPOLIS – In a rare move than may challenge the interpretation of “open enrollment” for athletes, the Indiana High School Athletic Association ruled high-profile high school basketball player Eron Gordon ineligible for the upcoming season Friday.

Gordon, a 6'2” junior-to-be is attempting to transfer from Indy North Central to Cathedral this fall.

He averaged 14.7 points and 4.4 rebounds as a sophomore at North Central and was named third team Super Team by the Star.

IHSAA commissioner Bobby Cox said in a message to The Indianapolis Star Friday that Gordon was deemed ineligible due to a transfer “primarily for athletic reasons,” as stated under Rule 19-4 of the IHSAA by-laws.

Trivia

Q: Twenty-five year old Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland won the British Open championship by two strokes over Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia Sunday, making him only the third PGA golf professional since 1934 to win his third major title before the age of 26. Name the first two.

A: Jack Nicklaus (1963 PGA Championship) and Tiger Woods (2000 British Open) both won their third major golf tournament championship before the age of 26.

 

Today in …

1884 – In a National League game at the Messer Street Gounds, in Providence, Rhode Island, Providence Grays pitcher Charlie Sweeney is ordered by manager Frank Bancroft to switch positions with right fielder Cyclone Miller in the ninth inning. The Grays hold a 6-2 lead over the Philadelphia Quakers (today's Phillies). Sweeney refuses, walking off the field. At the time, baseball's rules prohibited substitutions without the approval of the umpire, and the opposing team. So the Grays must play with eight men. Miller surrenders eight runs and the Grays lose 10-6. Sweeney is suspended and signs a contract with the St. Louis Maroons of the Union Association. Old Hoss Radbourn pitches nearly every game for the remainder of the season for Providence. He will finish with a 59-12 record, the most wins ever for a major league pitcher, as the Grays capture the NL pennant.

  

Birthdays

Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong, born 1977. Dodgers infielder Juan Uribe, born 1979.
