Following their third straight state tournament appearance, the Pella Christian girls’ basketball team will be losing four starters that saw a significant amount of playing time in the playoffs. Two of those athletes are Paige Engbers and Cori Uitermarkt. Head coach, Kevin Van Maanen said that both Engbers and Uitermarkt will leave a lasting impression on the program with the amount of leadership and experience they brought with them. Van Maanen also talked about all of the summer workouts that they headed during the offseason. Engbers said that she will be looking to continue her basketball career at Dordt College, and Uitermarkt said she is looking perhaps to play at Central.
