Pella High will once again be very well represented at the State Track Meet next week. The Lady Dutch qualified 13 events for the state meet, and walloped their nearest competitor, Grinnell, by 93 points en route to a district championship with 191 team points. Among the highlights include first place finishes in the 4 x 200 and 400 meter relays and in seven other events. Pella’s boys finished second as a team; the Little Dutch automatically qualified seven different events, including the 4 x 800 meter relay, 400 meter hurdles and the shot put. A full list of results can be found below. Both squads could get more to the state meet based on how the other teams finished in Class 3A.
