A closely-contested match-up at No. 4 doubles is all that kept the Pella Christian girls tennis team from sweeping their Tulip City rivals yesterday afternoon, as the Lady Eagles powered past Pella
The Lady Eagles took all but one of their wins in straight sets, while Pella’s tandem of Morgan Ernst and Diana Zabrudora battled their way to a 7-5, 6-4 victory for the Lady Dutch’s only victory.
The Pella girls return to conference action tomorrow at Knoxville; while Pella Christian will use the remainder of the week to prepare for Monday’s Little Hawkeye Conference meet.
