Excitement is building as 4th ranked Pella prepares to take on 5th ranked, defending state champions Marion tomorrow night in the opening round of the Class 3A State Volleyball Tournament. Pella enters the tournament with an all time best single season record of 39-5. Throughout the pre season and during the season Pella has went up against some of the best competition in the state and coach Bob Fessler says he believes that will benefit the Lady Dutch at the state tournament. Fessler says that’s why they travel to Iowa City and Dubuque Wahlert and compete in tough pre season camps because that experience will pay off at times like this. Pella is making their fourth straight appearance in the state volleyball tournament, but has yet to win a match. Fessler hopes to see that change tomorrow night. Pella will pay Marion at 7:15pm tomorrow at the US Cellular Center and you can hear the match live on 92.1 FM KRLS with Jamie Brockman and Wynne Veenstra, however due to state regulations the broadcast can not be streamed live or be made available for on demand or download on kniakrls.com.
