Despite solid efforts at the plate and in the pitcher’s circle, the Pella Christian softball team was unable to keep pace with a skilled Newton squad, as they fell 5-1 on the road Wednesday night.  Catcher Tessa Howerzyl scored the only run for the Lady Eagles, going 2-for-3 at the plate with a single and a double; while Lauren Jungling, Jenna Roose and Sami Veenstra each added a hit.  In the circle, Shannon Fynaardt took the complete game loss.  The Pella Christian softball team is now 3-8 overall and 1-2 in the Little Hawkeye Conference.
