Only having two seniors on the team this past season, the Pella Christian softball squad had more than enough leadership with their two twelfth-graders that donned the Eagles’ jersey in 2014. Lauren Jungling and Lydia Bandstra were the two seniors for the Eagles that had different roles on the team this season, but both accomplished the same goal of setting examples and leading the rest of the ladies out onto the diamond. Coach Karen Harrill says she’s going to miss them both because of how they bonded the team closer together and how they were the definition of team players. The Eagles will still be young the next several years; the team had just five juniors, and the rest were freshmen, sophomores or eighth-graders.
