It only took three sets for Pella’s volleyball team to take it to Ballard and open up the season with a win last night. The Lady Dutch won 25 – 23, 25 – 15, and 25 – 19. Coach Catie Brand tells KNIA/KRLS Sports that her girls looked a lot more experienced in just their first match. Regan Nelson had nine kills and three aces, and Shannon Ewing also contributed eight kills. Pella starts the year 1 – 0, and they next play in a varsity invitational at Bondurant-Farrar tomorrow morning, where they will face West Des Moines Valley, West Marshall and Davis County.
