Pella Christian Hosts Newton in Conference Play

The Pella Christian volleyball team hosts Newton tonight in a match that the Eagles need to win to keep their hopes of winning the Little Hawkeye Conference alive. Pella Christian Coach John Evenhouse says he would like to have the team in position to challenge Pella for the conference title when they meet the Little Dutch at the end of the conference schedule, but first they’ll have to win contests against Newton and Grinnell. Evenhouse adds that several teams in the conference, including Knoxville and Oskaloosa are also playing well, so things could be tight going down the stretch. Freshman play between the Eagles and Cardinals starts at 5:30 p.m. tonight, followed by the JV and then the Varsity match.
