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.

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

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).

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.

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.
