Little Hawkeye Conference foes for the last time, Pella High and Knoxville collided on the tennis courts yesterday for the first time this season in a dual meet. The Little and Lady Dutch were able to handle Knoxville in both contests. Pella’s girls won 8 – 3; they took five of the six singles matches and won some very close doubles’ affairs to take the meet. Two of the doubles’ matched went to a third set tiebreaker. It wasn’t nearly as close on the boys’ side, as the Little Dutch went unscathed against the Panthers. Only the number five doubles’ team for Pella lost a set, but bounced back to win the next two. Full results for both Knoxville and Pella can be found below.
