The end of any athletic season is often bittersweet, but perhaps none more than those in the summer. For the senior leaders of those teams, not only are they finished competing with their teammates, but it is also the last time they’ll don their school colors for a sanctioned contest. Such was the case Tuesday night when the Pella Christian baseball team saw their season ended in the Class 2A District Semifinals.
Eagles’ head coach Brad Rolffs said he was proud of the effort by his leaders in their final game. Pella Christian graduates five seniors from this year’s varsity line-up – Derek Ambroson, Dan Hessing, Jordan Rossler, Leighton Schnedler and Will VandeVoort. The Eagles finished the 2012 season at 12-23 overall.
