TERRE HAUTE — Two Terre Haute schools, two Terre Haute coaches and four Terre Haute All-Stars.

When it comes to the 21st Annual North-South All-Star Classic on April14 at Rose-Hulman, it would be hard to discern any North-South bias.

Both schools placed All-Stars on the girls and boys teams and each school will have a coach on the sideline for the games. Terre Haute South’s Cara Stuckey will coach the South team in the girls game at 2 p.m. Terre Haute North’s Todd Woelfle will coach the South team in the boys game at 4 p.m.

Each will have one of their own players and one from their cross-town rival.

Stuckey will have her own Brave — Tasia Brewer — as well as North’s Nicole Anderson. Woelfle will have Calvin Blank — a four-year player for the Patriots — as well as fellow four-year player Jeffrey Turner from the Braves.

Linton’s Austin Karazsia and Rockville’s Lane Mahurin and Gary Ulrich were three other Wabash Valley players named to the South boys squad.

Rockville’s Jenifer Lee and Sullivan’s Rhagen Smith — who will play at Indiana State — are also on the South team. North Vermillion’s Taylor Turchi is also playing for the North girls team.

Included on the North boys team are Brenton Scott of Fort Wayne Northrop and Alex Etherington of Hamilton Heights, both are ISU recruits.

-- Hawkins resigns at Casey — Casey boys basketball coach Steve Hawkins tendered his resignation in a letter sent to Casey-Westfield Schools and the local media on Friday.

Hawkins had been at Casey for three seasons. In the letter, he cited family obligations as his reason for resigning. Hawkins was  49-29 with the Warriors and Casey was 19-7 last season.


-- Wichita State 4, ISU 1 — At Wichita, Kan., Indiana State fell below .500 in the Missouri Valley Conference with a loss at Wichita State.

ISU ace Sean Manaea did not make his scheduled start. He missed the game with a hip injury. Devin Moore started in Manaea’s place and went 5 2/3 innings, allowing four earned runs.

ISU’s offense gave Moore little support. ISU could only muster four base hits against WSU starter Cale Elam. Koby Kraemer was 2-for-2 with a double, but he had the Sycamores only extra base hit.

The series resumes at 2 p.m. today.

-- Hanover 13, Rose-Hulman 7 — At Hanover, Hanover scored three times in the third inning and had an eight-run fourth inning to top Rose-Hulman in the opener of a Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference series Friday.

Senior Bobby Newman contributed a solo home run to the effort. Freshman Patrick Klima contributed a single, one run and one RBI.

Rose-Hulman (7-13, 4-3) and Hanover (13-8, 6-2) square off in a doubleheader today at noon.
