Adams County crowns Pee-Wee champions

Another successful season of Pee-Wee Basketball in Adams County recently came to a conclusion with the completion of the post-season tournaments. A combined effort of many volunteers came together to host 40 games in numerous sites around the county, culminating in all of the tournament champions being crowned on March 19 and 20.

In the third grade boys tourney, 12 teams began play and in the end it was North Adams #4 taking the title with a championship game victory over West Union #2.

Six third grade girls teams began tournament play on March 16 and in the title contest, it was North Adams #1 taking the crown with a victory over runner-up West Union.

In the fourth grade boys division, eight teams began tournament play and in the championship game it was North Adams #1 winning the title with a victory over Manchester.

Only four teams battled it out in the fourth grade girls division and in the final it was North Adams topping Peebles for the title.

Eight fifth grade boys teams began tournament action and the ending to this one was rather unique. Both Peebles #1 and Peebles #2, both coached by Jason Kremin, reached the championship round and instead of playing each other, the two decided to declare themselves as co-champions.

The fifth grade girls title, after a tourney involving six teams, went to North Adams #2, who topped Manchester in the championship game.

In the sixth grade boys division, eight teams began action on March 15 and when the smoke cleared, it was Manchester defeating Ripley in the title contest.

Finally, in the sixth grade girls division, six teams entered the tournament and in the championship contest, it was North Adams defeating Manchester.

The 40 tournament games were hosted by the elementary schools in West Union, Manchester, North Adams, and Peebles.
