The Adrian community stands strong, stands proud, and comes together for the common good time and time again. We all know that Blackhawk Pride runs rampant in Adrian. We feel it, we breathe it, we live it. At the forefront of that pride is Yoss Thriftway. After 40 years, this family-owned grocery store continues to be an integral part of the community.
The Adrian Lady Blackhawks participated in the annual Archie volleyball tournament on Saturday, September 11. Adrian came away with a third place finish. Coach Huckaby stated, “The girls did a great job in this tournament. We played a total of five matches and ended up taking third place overall. I’m pretty happy with the way they played. They looked pretty good. We even had some great plays come from the bench. Overall, we have a very well rounded team and I am very excited about it.”
