Pella Christian enters the Little Hawkeye Conference volleyball schedule with a hot start to the regular season. The Lady Eagles are 6-1 overall, thanks to a well-rounded approach on both offense and defense, complimented by a great deal of athleticism.

Along with their obvious skill, head coach Cindy Nikkel says the overall team attitude has also been a key to their early success.

“Our overall attitude this year is huge. It’s upbeat; they’re fired up; they’re for each other; [and] they’re not about individuals. They’re really a true team,” says Nikkel. “That is what warms a coach’s heart to see and it really makes it fun to coach.”

The Lady Eagles open conference play tonight at home at 7:15 p.m. against Norwalk.
