The Pella volleyball team is hoping to make their second consecutive trip to the state tournament a longer experience than last year’s when they take on Nevada today in the quarterfinals round.

The only losses this season for No. 1 rated Lady Dutch have come to three Class 5A state qualifiers. They take on a Nevada team that was last year’s 3A champion.

Senior Natalie Meyer says they look to perform better in round one action this year than a season ago based on having more knowledge of the environment heading into the tournament.

Pella will look to earn their first-ever state tournament win at 4 p.m. Pregame coverage with Andrew Schneider and Wynne Veenstra begins at 3:30 on 92.1 KRLS live from the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids.
