Pella High Included in Field at Today’s Newton Volleyball Invitational

The Pella High volleyball team returns to competition today – their first since Tuesday’s reinvigorating 3-1 win over crosstown rival Pella Christian. The Lady Dutch begin tournament play this morning at Newton, and while the squad has some potentially valuable matches on their schedule today, head coach Catie Brand is trying to put much of the emphasis on what her own players do.

“It’s the first we’ll have seen Newton, and we play them in a couple weeks, so it’ll be good to see their team and where they’re at,” said Brand. “We have a couple other schools that aren’t in our pool, but we’ve played them before and we might come across them in the championship. We’re going to keep most of the focus on our side of the net and make sure we’re playing consistently.”

The Pella High volleyball team is 8-12 overall and begins pool play at 8:30 a.m. this morning in Newton.
