Pella Girls Coach Encouraged by Early Season Game

The Pella girls basketball team is in the middle of a week away from competition after opening the 2009-10 campaign on Tuesday night. Though the Lady Dutch were handed a 62-46 defeat by defending 3-A State Champion Ballard, Head Coach Jared Garland says what he saw from the team was encouraging.

“I feel like we saw that there’s possibilities of us having a good game,” said Garland. “You know, it’s still early and we are just getting our feet wet with a lot of the girls, but they definitely showed some potential.”

The Pella girls are back in action Tuesday at Newton when they open Little Hawkeye Conference play.
