Pella Christian Boys Will Return Strong Core Next Basketball Season

A loss to Albia in the Class 2-A District Tournament ended the Pella Christian boys’ season earlier than the Eagles had hoped, but a line-up dominated by juniors could be the silver lining on the cloud of an earlier-than-anticipated exit.  

Pella Christian Head Coach Larry Hessing says that the team will no doubt miss the leadership of seniors Jon Holwerda, and James and Joe Blom; but says they’re looking forward to returning a strong nucleus that will be seniors next season.  

Hessing adds that he hopes the combination of offseason workouts and team camps will have the Eagles ready for a successful season next winter.  The Pella Christian boys finished this past season with a record of 15-7.
