After missing out last year, the Pella boys golf team is headed back to the Class 3A State Golf Tournament after finishing second at yesterday’s Class 3A District meet in Adel.
After finishing second to Pella at the Sectional Monday, Ballard was back in form shooting a 298 to win while Pella shot a 315 to finish runners up. Both teams advance to the State Tournament.
Lucas Boyd led Pella with a 75 which placed him fourth individually, Andy Vanderbroek shot a 78 and Conner Kelderman and Ben Fessler each shot an 81. This marks the 11th time in the last 13 years Pella had advanced to the State Golf Tournament. The State Meet will be held at The Harvester Golf Course in Ames next Friday and Saturday.
