Posted: Sunday, March 14th, 2010 at 6:29 am

The Pella High School boys basketball finished an impressive run through the postseason as State Runner-Up, as the Little Dutch fell to Sioux City Bishop Heelan 50-45 in last night’s Class 3-A State Championship game. Senior Nathan Buchheit was named to the All-Tournament Team. Pella finishes the season with an overall record of 22-4.

Sioux City Heelan’s win, which was followed by a victory for Ames in the late game, means that three of the defending champions (Rock Valley in 1-A, Bishop Heelan in 3-A and Ames in 4-A) repeated as state champions.
