The Pella boys track team is having a perfect season so far winning all seven meets they’ve competed in and continue to score points in just about every event. So far this season 38 different kids have scored points for the Little Dutch. This week, howver, most of their attention has been focused on the three events that will be running in the Drake Relays. Brett Bogaard will run in the 100 meter dash, Zach Wittenberg will compete in the 1600 and Pella’s 4×800 relays team also will compete this weekend in the Drake Relays. Coach Brent Van Hauen feels very confident that all three events have very good chances of medaling, something Pella hasn’t done since 2002.

Bogaard will run his preliminary race at 8:46am tomorrow morning and hopes to qualify for the finals which will run at 12:58pm Friday, the 4×800 team of Richie Bales, Zach Wittenberg, Grant Gustaffson and Todd Wegter will run at 11:06am Saturday and Wittenberg will run the 1600 at 2:20pm Saturday.
