Pella Girls Coach says Defense Needs to be Brought up to Speed

The Pella girls basketball team gets their first taste of Little Hawkeye Conference action tomorrow, as the Lady Dutch travel to Newton. Following a loss to Ballard last week to open the season, Pella Head Coach Jared Garland says he’s been trying to focus more on defense in practice.

“I feel like we’ve been focused on offense to get these girls caught-up from volleyball, and maybe at the expense of defense a little bit. Now we know and can get back to the drawing board there.”

Following tomorrow night’s contest against the Cardinals, the Lady Dutch will play in their first home game of the season, when they host Oskaloosa on Friday night.
