Facing a traditionally strong Grinnell squad, the Pella Christian boys tennis team battled to a pair of hard-earned victories, but ultimately fell to the Tigers 2-7 Tuesday evening. The Eagles’ Nick Van Beek earned a win at No. 4 singles by coming back from a 1-6 first set loss to claim the next two sets. The duo of Nick Dahm and Micah Zantingh added Pella Christian’s other victory, winning at No. 1 doubles. The Eagles are off until next Tuesday when they travel to Newton.
