You lose a lot of experience when you have to depart with a lot of seniors that were able to get to a state tournament. For Pella boys’ soccer and their returning players, the experience and lessons they learned from those seniors last year is invaluable. Coach Mark Solomon says that one of the biggest lessons that his guys picked up was to keep their feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars, despite the success they were having throughout the season. The Little Dutch head coach also says that his now-departed seniors displayed an element of poise and confidence that represented the school well and did a great job of fighting through adversity throughout the year. They will start their season on April 2.
