After a sporadic start to the season, the Little Hawkeye Conference schedule is in full swing for the Pella High boys basketball team, once the Little Dutch return from break.  

Pella High head coach Mark Core says while the start of the conference slate was good for his team, he knows it’s about to get a lot harder.

“We’re situated pretty nicely right now with three wins in the conference, but we have some pretty tough games [coming up],” says Core.

“We go from the kind of slow pace of December where we only played five games, and now all of the sudden we’re going to have 16 games in a hurry. So we’re not only going to be playing a lot of games, but we’re going to be playing against some pretty tough opponents.”

The Little Dutch are 3-2 overall and resume conference play on Tuesday against Oskaloosa.
