Eagles’ Runners Head to Montezuma Tonight

One final tune-up is awaiting Pella Christian’s cross country teams this afternoon as the Eagles head to Montezuma for a varsity meet. This will be the final race for the Eagles before Monday’s Little Hawkeye Conference meet in Grinnell. With such a young and small team playing in a very good and big conference, Pella Christian coach Jocelyn Meinders says that there have been several pleasant surprises from her ninth graders at this point in the season. Meinders also tells KNIA/KRLS Sports that with deep and talented varsity teams in attendance at the conference meet on Monday, her teams will just be out there and focused on running their best time of the season and getting ready for the state qualifying meet in a couple weeks. Twin Cedars will be in attendance as well this afternoon, and the racing is scheduled to start at 4:30.
