Despite Lack of Championships, Pella Christian Senior Class Among Best in School History

Posted: Saturday, March 18th, 2017 at 5:57 am

While the goal this summer was to claim state titles in football and basketball, the lack of first-place trophies coming to the Pella Christian trophy case does not reflect the incredible Class of 2017 athletes that finished their high school careers on Eagle Lane.

Pella Christian’s boys basketball team features eight athletes who made significant contributions not only on the hardwood, but on the gridiron and baseball diamond.

Beyond All-State stars Levi Jungling and David Kacmarynski, the remaining six seniors were key players on the 2nd place finishers in class 2A. 

Head Coach Larry Hessing says it’s rare to have a single class contribute what they did to the basketball team in 2017, especially from the type of bench they had.

Caleb Roose was second on the team with 20 three-pointers made, Jackson Flagel was second on the team with 32 offensive rebounds, and Scott Haveman was 15-of-32 from beyond the arc. 

Among the starters, Graham Howerzyl battled injuries in his career, but finished as the top perimeter defender for the Eagles; Alex Pringle finished with 6.6 points per game and was second on the team with 67 assists, and Kenden Veenstra was the rim defender, blocking 30 shots and collecting three rebounds per contest. 

Levi Jungling and David Kacmarynski finished as All-State basketball players, the third such honor for Jungling in his storied dual-sport career. 

Pella Christian finished 22-5 and 2nd place in Class 2A.
