The journey back to Des Moines for the Pella Christian Eagles’ girls basketball team begins tonight on the road at Albia. These two teams were very familiar with one another last year, with the Eagles getting the best of Albia, winning both games by 50 or more points. Albia finished last season with a 5 – 17 record and in the process, lost just four seniors, compared to the Eagles’ seven. The Eagles have the height advantage, but what Pella Christian head coach, Kevin Van Maanen, will be looking for, is to see if his girls can finish games late. The varsity teams tip-off their regular seasons tonight at Albia at 7:30 p.m.
