The Pella Christian cross country team had just one senior on its team and dealt with a lot of youth during the 2013 season. Coach Jocelyn Meinders had first-time runners, athletes that had run in middle school, and even some foreign exchange students that wanted to try the sport out. Being the supporting coach that she is, Meinders kept telling her runners how much they had improved from meet-to-meet, but for the runners themselves, they had to see those results for themselves to believe them. Coach Meinders tells KNIA/KRLS Sports that she expects most of her varsity team to be back next year plus some very talented eighth graders to have an immediate impact as freshmen.
