Following a pair of big losses to Dallas Center-Grimes on Friday, Pella Christian’s ball clubs regained their footing over the weekend, winning a pair of games on Saturday. The Eagles’ girls defeated Roland-Story, 48 – 36. Tessa Howerzyl dumped in a game-high 16 points while Brooke Mitrisin and Lauren Jungling each added ten points. Coach Kevin Van Maanen tells KNIA/KRLS Sports that it was a good bounce back for his girls. Down in Washington, the Eagles’ boys took care of the Demons in a close affair, 61 – 57. The game was tied down the stretch of the fourth quarter, but Pella Christian hit a big bucket and some clutch free throws to seal the win. The Pella Christian girls are now 3 – 2 on the season, while the boys improve to 2 – 1, and they are each back in action tonight on the road against PCM.
