With their first competition now less than a week away, the Pella Christian girls tennis team is putting the remaining pieces in place this week as they eagerly await the 2012 season. Last year’s Little Hawkeye Conference champions have 25 girls out this season, which head coach Faith Bliss says will give the team great depth and will mix the line-up around throughout the season.

“They’ve improved since last year. That makes my thought process move a little quicker along the lines of us being a tough team again this year,” said Bliss.

“We have a bunch of new kids as well, and they’re not too far behind them [our veterans], so we should have a nice, deep team as well.”

Pella Christian opens the spring season on April 2nd with a home meet against Albia.
