Pella Christian’s basketball teams each have three games on the docket this week, starting tonight with a visit from Dallas Center-Grimes.

The girls game features two teams who are in the middle of the pack in the Little Hawkeye Conference, with the Fillies at 3-2 and the Eagles at 2-3. Pella Christian coach Kevin Van Maanen is hoping his team can build on a good performance in a losing effort last Friday against Grinnell.

“It’s two winnable games this week, hopefully three with Des Moines Christian. We have to just take it one game at a time, get back on the winning track, get some confidence and keep moving forward.”

The Pella Christian boys are hoping to make it two league wins in a row. The Eagles are 1-4 in the LHC while DC-G is 2-3.

Andrew Schneider and Wynne Veenstra will have the play-by-play of the doubleheader on KRLS2 at Pregame starts at 6:00 with the opening tip set for 6:15.
