Veteran leadership was certainly a real unknown for the Pella Christian boys basketball team in the onset of this season, but as the Eagles enjoy a 5-2 overall record at the holiday break, it appears that this year’s senior class is getting more comfortable in what is being asked of them by their coaches and teammates.

“That’s always a new role for seniors – no matter what sports team they’re on – and this group has really done a good job of being leaders,” said Pella Christian boys basketball coach Larry Hessing. “They really want to do well and they’re trying to do the things to ensure success.”

Hessing that the example his seniors set during practices for the remainder of the break will be important in establishing the tone for the remainder of the season.
