Through their losses, the Pella Christian boys’ basketball team has been making strides forward. They may be baby steps, but it is still progress. Coach Larry Hessing and his team all know that they are playing in an extremely tough conference than perhaps it was a year ago. Hessing stresses that despite the increase in intensity in the Little Hawkeye Conference this season, as long as his guys continue to improve, it’ll do more help than harm. Pella Christian and Pella will play for the second time this season this Tuesday inside of the Eagles’ gym.
