Pella Christian Hosts Big Track Meet Tonight

Pella, PCM, Melcher-Dallas, Pleasantville and the host Pella Christian Eagles will be in attendance for tonight’s co-ed invitational track meet. The Pella High squads are coming off of a pair of victories in Oskaloosa on Saturday, and with time winding down to qualify for Drake Relays, teams will be trying to post faster times, further throws and longer and higher jumps. The Little Dutch will have a split squad today; some will be at Pella Christian competing, and another group will go to Chariton to race there. Coach Brent Van Hauen says so far this season there really haven’t been too many surprises, but there are still things to work on. Eagles’ girls’ coach, Kevin Herdegen says they will try to mix the line-ups a bit for today, but all of the girls are excited to race in front of their home crowd. Events get going at Pella Christian High this afternoon at 4:45 p.m.
