Exactly one week away from opening up the 2013 season, the Pella High volleyball team is bearing down in their final week of practice in preparation for Ballard. This year, the Lady Dutch showcase six senior members on the team, each with their own strengths. Coach Catie Brand says that with all of those strengths together, her team is a force to be reckoned with this season. Brand adds they set the tone and set the example for what they want the rest of the program to look like. The debut of Pella High volleyball in 2013 will be next Thursday on the road against the Bombers of Ballard.
