Cindy Nikkel is into her second season as the head coach of the Pella Christian volleyball team, and while the Lady Eagles’ roster will look much different, the staff that is molding them into a team has remained a constant. Nikkel says she’s fortunate to have a skilled and passionate coaching staff returning to help her again this fall.

Coach [Audra] Faber is back at the freshman level. She’s just so technically sound – and that’s where we need to get the fundamentals down – and she just does a great job with them. KB [Kristin Brouwer] has been a college player, she knows the game well, and has a heart for the girls – and she’s back. And Kim Gritters – my assistant – is back,” said Nikkel.

“I can’t be more than thrilled about that, because when your staff is back and your staff is committed to your players as people – and as players – you can’t ask for more than that.”

On Thursday, August 23rd, Pella Christian opens the varsity schedule with a home match against Johnston.
