It has been a banner year so far for boys athletics at Pella High School winning a state championship in Cross Country as well as state runner up finishes in both football and basketball. Now, many of those same athletes hope to continue the success in track and field this spring. The Little Dutch graduated a lot of their field event athletes from last season which leaves them some holes to fill in those events, however their running events top to bottom look to be very strong according to head coach Brent Van Hauen. Pella has competed in three indoor events so far this season and as expected have seen good results especially in the sprints and relays. Van Hauen also notes they look forward to being able to compete on their new track at the newly renovated Pella Athletics Facility.
