With a school population of less than 250 and only one state tournament banner on the wall it might be easy to bypass Cowan on the list of must see basketball programs. And that, would be a big mistake. Located between the mammoth gyms of New Castle & Muncie, the home of the Blackhawks may be the most inviting court we've visited. Bathed in a golden glow, with daylight streaming in windows above the home crowd and trimmed in black - the setting seems almost suitable for framing. Add to the picture the Winchester Golden Falcons, dressed to match, and the color palette was complete. Although the Lady Blackhawks were defeated 69-37, we understand full well why "Blackhawk Pride" is emblazoned on their walls. Walls well worth visiting. CGS.
