The Newton volleyball team did something that no other team in the Little Hawkeye Conference had been able to do up until yesterday: beat Pella. The Cardinals won in three straight sets, 25 – 20, 26 – 24 and 26 – 24. Makenna Bogaard led the team with seven kills, Taelor Rempe had 24 digs, and Jessica Holterhaus had five blocks to highlight Pella’s night. Both Pella and Newton finished with 6 – 1 records in the conference, and the Lady Dutch end their regular season 20 – 15 overall. Pella is off until next Thursday to play either Knoxville or Carlisle in the semifinals of the Class 4A regional tournament.
