Pella Christian’s volleyball team had several injuries in the beginning of the year that they had to deal with. The first of them came during a training camp at Central College. Morgan De Ruiter had been having several issues with her shoulder, but felt like she was finally ready to contribute this fall. Unfortunately, De Ruiter had more problems arise at the Dutch volleyball camp and was sidelined for the entire year. Coach Cindy Nikkel says having De Ruiter in the starting rotation could have opened up some opportunities for her team this season and made them a little more dangerous. The Eagles also lost two key players during their game with Johnston in late August, which mostly led to their 2 – 11 start.
