Ten seniors will lead a very potent Pella High volleyball team into it’s fifth consecutive trip to the State Volleyball Tournament next week, and head coach Bob Fessler is hoping that his veterans will be a difference-maker in how far the team will go.  Fessler says the atmosphere at the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids is hard to prepare for, but thinks that the collective experience of his team will be key in helping the Lady Dutch make a deeper run in the tournament than in years past.  Pella will have a week to ready themselves for the opening round, which will see the Lady Dutch begin their State Tournament run against Sioux City Bishop Heelan on Wednesday afternoon in Cedar Rapids.
