Following Saturday’s thrilling buzzer-beater victory over ADM, the Pella boys basketball team are now the winners of two straight games and have continued to see significant contributions from multiple players each night. One of the latest players to step into one of those roles has been junior forward Kyle Newendorp. Newendorp’s minutes increased when teammate Travis Ewing went down with an injury, and Head Coach Mark Core says even though the circumstances are unfortunate, he’s been impressed with the way Newendorp has seized the opportunity and improved dramatically. Pella is 9-2 overall and 7-1 in the Little Hawkeye Conference.
