The Pella Christian girls basketball team is off to a solid start this season, and helping the Lady Eagles get off the ground quickly has been a commitment to high-energy defense.  Pella Christian Head Coach Kevin Van Maanen says that while his squad is not the type that will wear down opponents through brute force, they do have a lot of quickness and athleticism that will force teams to work hard for the entire distance of the court throughout all four quarters of play. 

Another key element of this year’s Lady Eagles’ squad is depth, which Van Maanen says will allow him to consistently rotate ten players to keep fresh legs on the floor.  The Pella Christian girls basketball team is 2-0 after wins this past week against PCM and Albia.
