With the season over a little sooner than they had hoped, it’s time to reflect back on the many accomplishments made by the Pella softball team this season. Just two seasons ago, this same group of girls, mostly freshman won only three games the entire season, this season, that all changed as they won 20 games, earned a co-Little Hawkeye Conference championship, and won their first post season game since 2002 and came up just one run short of advancing to the Regional Final. Coach Krista Demeulenaere says these girls have worked so hard and put the time in and it’s now finally paying off. Pella finished the season 20-10 overall and saw their season end last week with a 1-0 loss to 6th ranked Keokuk in the Regional Semifinals.
