Suspended in the middle of doubles’ play over a week ago, the Pella Christian – Knoxville girls’ tennis meet picked up where they left off last night. The Eagles won the final four doubles’ matches to win the meet 9 – 2 over the Panthers. All but one of the matches were decided in consecutive sets, as the team of Jora Vander Hart and Anna Vander Molen defeated Kassie Griggs and Taylor Carter in the third set tiebreaker. The Little Hawkeye Conference meet is next for both teams on Monday at the tennis courts in Caldwell Park in Pella.
