Eleven events between the Pella High boys’ and girls’ track teams qualified for the Drake Relays that took place two weeks ago, and both Dutch squads will be trying to get right back to the Blue Oval today when they head to Grinnell for the State Qualifying Meet. Coach Brent Van Hauen for the Little Dutch said that their success so far this season can be attributed to the level of competition they see every day during practice. Both the Pella boys’ and girls’ teams have plenty of competition to deal with, as joining them in Grinnell will be perennial powerhouses Solon, Williamsburg, and South Tama has also been strong this season. The state qualifying meet is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. this afternoon.
