A win over Norwalk gave the Pella Christian softball team its second win in as many days, as the Lady Eagles downed the Warriors 7-2 in Pella on Wednesday night.  

The Lady Eagles’ Paige Blom set the tone in the pitcher’s circle, scattering seven hits and striking out six Norwalk batters, while giving up just one walk after allowing nine the previous game.  

Morgan Blom was 3-for-4 at the plate for Pella Christian, scoring twice; while Ashley Van Kooten and Shelby Weaver each picked up a pair of hits, with Van Kooten scoring twice and batting in two runs and Weaver crossing the plate once in the win.  

The Pella Christian softball team is now 10-4 overall and 5-2 in the Little Hawkeye Conference, with a home game against Knoxville on Friday up next on the schedule.
