ADRIAN, Mich.--Adrian College Athletics was featured prominently yesterday on "Drive Time with Mike Miller" as Bulldogs men's hockey coach Adam Krug and Toledo Blade outdoors editor Matt Markey appeared with Miller on 106.5 FM The Ticket ESPN Toledo.
Markey was there to discuss Adrian's nationally-ranked bass fishing team that ended its season ranked No. 1 in the Association of Collegiate Anglers (ACA) poll, explaining a piece he wrote about the program in Sunday's edition of The Blade.
Normally the popular radio show is hosted in the Monroe Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM Superstore, but the location was moved right here to the Cotton Brewing Company.

The Bulldogs hockey squad is the three-time defending Northern Collegiate Hockey Association Peters Cup champion, coming off a seventh NCAA Division III Men's Ice Hockey Championship appearance and reaching their second national semifinals game in three years. Adrian enters the 2017-18 season returning 87.7 percent of its goal-scoring and 89.9 percent of the assist production from the 2016-17 team that went 20-7-2 overall and 17-3 with a NCHA South Division title. The senior class has gone 68-15-6 (.798), won 87.9 of its conference games, captured five NCHA regular-season and Harris Cup crowns, and made three trips to the NCAA Tournament.
Fans can catch their first glimpse of the Adrian men's hockey team on Sunday, Oct. 22, in the annual Bulldog Black & Gold intrasquad game at 2 p.m. in Arrington Ice Arena. Arrington also will serve as the site for when the Bulldogs entertain the U.S. Under-18 team in an exhibition on Saturday, Oct. 28, at 7:30 p.m. (Ticket information). The season starts in earnest on Friday, Nov. 3 at Lawrence, before the Bulldogs have their home opener against NCAA newcomer Trine University on Saturday, Nov. 18 (7:05 p.m.).
