A gymnasium full of talented wrestling squads from around the area made for a tough Saturday for the Little Dutch, as they finished in ninth place in the Pella Invitational.  Levi Azinger finished in 5th place at 103 pounds, and Kyle Langstraat placed 6th at 125 to give Pella its only points in the tournament.  Norwalk was the overall team winner with 186.5 points; edging out second-place Albia by a mere 3.5 points.  The Pella wrestling team is now off until after the holiday break.
