Coach Nate Van Wyk had a three-person pitching staff, his team had to deal with injuries and everything a typical softball season entails. One huge part of this 2013 Pella Christian softball season for the Eagles was their youth. Van Wyk says that his team grew before him as the season wore on. Pella Christian had the third fewest strikeouts in the league on offense, and were third in the league in home runs with a team total of nine. They finished the year with a 13 – 18 – 1 record.
