The Pella Christian girls tennis team kicked off their season at home with a clean sweep of Centerville 11-0.

Senior Andrea Carballo tells KNIA/KRLS Sports she was glad the younger players on the team got a taste of varsity action after so many seniors graduated last year.

“It’s a great start for the season, and I definitely think it’s a morale booster for all the young girls that are now on the team,” she says.

The Eagles are 1-0 and host conference newcomer Indianola Thursday.
