Tiger Cubs from Adrian Cub Scouts Pack 238 visted The Adrian Journal on Thursday, January 29, 2015. They took a tour, watched a demonstration on how The Journal is put together each week and helped place their picture on this week’s front page. Along with scout leader Kris Saathoff, the Tiger Cubs toured The Journal because they are learning about the town they live in.

The Adrian Blackhawks varsity girls and boys participated in the 85th Annual Archie Tournament January 26-31. The boys were seeded 5th and came home with Consolation as they defeated the Drexel Bobcats. The Lady Blackhawks, who were seeded 2nd, defeated Midway for a third place finish.
In first round action for the boys on Monday night, they took on a very impressive Metro Academy team. The Blackhawks fell to Metro 70 to 49. Coach Basore commented, “We got off to a slow start, but our boys really fought hard to get back into the game. We just ran out of gas down the stretch.”
Saturday, January 31 the Adrian Blackhawks wrestling teams traveled to Richmond for tournament action. In the 1st Place Match of the Championship Bracket, Zachary Shannon (Adrian) won by fall over Milo Henry (North Callaway). In the Consolation Bracket Jesse Graham placed 2nd.
