North's Rachel Gutish to compete Thursday in Global X Games

TERRE HAUTE — Versatile teenage athlete Rachel Gutish of Terre Haute said she will be one of 12 females competing in Thursday’s “invitation only” women’s endurocross during the nationally televised Global X Games in the city of Foz do Iguaeu in Brazil, South America.

A junior at Terre Haute North High School, Gutish told the Tribune-Star that the event will be shown live on ESPN. The sports network advertises that its Global X Games telecast will begin at 7 p.m. EDT Thursday and Gutish estimated that the indoor women’s endurocross should come on at about 8.

Gutish, 17, said she would miss four days of classes at North, but she added that she would be bringing homework to study during her down time on the road.

An IHSAA state finalist in the girls pole vault as a sophomore last year, Gutish also expects to miss two track and field meets while she’s away.

Gutish said she’ll be riding a Yamaha YZ 250S during the women’s endurocross main event, which she estimated will last about 15 minutes.


Butler-ISU matchup called off — Tuesday’s game between Indiana State and Butler at Bob Warn Field was cancelled because of rain in the Wabash Valley.

No date has been set for a rescheduling of the game. Tuesday’s contest also was “Terre Haute Boys & Girls Club Night,” which has been moved to May 11 against Alcorn State.

The Sycamores will host Southern Illinois Edwardsville at 6 p.m. today to wrap up their homestand. This weekend, ISU will play its final road Missouri Valley Conference series, traveling to Normal, Ill., for three games against Illinois State.


Valley athletes compete — At Indianapolis, at least three athletes with Wabash Valley connections fared well in the National Physique Committee’s Natural Indiana Bodybuilding, Physique, Figure and Bikini Championships on Saturday in the Madame Walker Theatre.

Clay County resident Brian Boyce, 37, placed third in the men’s open welterweight division for bodybuilding. Phil Chatman, 49, of Terre Haute finished sixth in the men’s open middleweight division for bodybuilding. Indianapolis resident Charity Stewart, a 2001 graduate of Terre Haute South High School, came in sixth in Figure Class C.
