Following a rough stretch earlier this month that included losses to Pella High, Norwalk, Des Moines Christian and Grinnell in a relatively short span of time, the Pella Christian boys basketball team is hoping that a 19-point win at Gilbert in their last outing will help return the team to its winning ways.

Eagles’ head coach Larry Hessing acknowledges that his squad still has some difficult games remaining in the regular season, and says his team continues to strive for more consistency on the defensive end and to execute better in pressure situations on offense. The Eagles are 9-6 overall on the season and will face travel to Newton on Tuesday to face a much improved Cardinals squad than the one they beat handily in late December.
