Pella High girls’ basketball head coach, Jerod Garland is pleased with how practices have gone over the first week-and-a-half of their preseason preparations. The Lady Dutch return three starters this year, and after that remains a mystery. Garland says depth will be an issue at least early on this season, and hopes one of the younger girls will step up and show some consistency. The Lady Dutch will tip off their 2013-14 season at home this Monday night against Des Moines North. The opening tip for that game has just recently been pushed back; the two schools will now begin play at 7:30 p.m.
