It’s another day and another tough road trip for Pella Christian’s volleyball squad to begin 2013. After defeating Marshalltown in four sets on Monday, the Eagles will look to topple Johnston later tonight to move to 2 – 0 on the year. Eagles’ coach, Cindy Nikkel said after their win Monday, that her girls looked a little tentative on the court, and hopes that they’ll be a little more confident for tonight’s game now that the first contest is out of the way. Johnston is also trying to stay undefeated, after they beat Des Moines North in three straight sets this past Tuesday. The Dragons also made the state tournament last season, with a 26 – 9 record, and are ranked second in the state in Class 5A in the preseason polls. The Eagles and Dragons get going tonight at 7:30.
