The Pella High volleyball team was an explosive group of girls that brought new challenges to the table with each opponent they faced this season. The Lady Dutch were not blessed with a lot of height at the net, but with talented athletes such as Jessica Holterhaus, Shannon Ewing and Anna Van Roekel, just to name a few, flying up and down the net, it helped expand their offensive and defensive horizons quite a bit. Coach Catie Brand adds that in their season-ending loss to Indianola in the Class 4A regional final, the Indians did come prepared to defend against the several weapons her team brought to the court. Brand says that’s a credit to her team; Indianola knew they had to prepare for Pella, which means her squad was worth being ready for.
