August 29 is the debut of the Pella volleyball team in 2013, and they’ll be starting the season a little differently than they did in 2012. Instead of beginning with a tournament right out of the gate, the Lady Dutch will take on Ballard in a single match on the road that Thursday to open up regular season play. Coach Catie Brand says that all three of her teams get to play together that day, and it really helps the team harmony. She adds that when you start with a weekend tournament, it’s a lot of volleyball that you’re not used to. The Lady Dutch coach also said it should give them a fresh start and hopefully they can bring home a win.
