Eagles Preparing for Quarterfinals Game Tonight

Posted By Sports On October 23, 2012 @ 6:00 am In Today’s Local Sports | Comments Disabled

The 16 – 17 Pella Christian Eagles volleyball team is looking to advance to the Class 2A regional semifinals tonight against Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont. The Eagles are just three wins from reaching the state tournament in Cedar Rapids, but they’ll be facing a familiar foe this evening. The Rockets are 27 – 8 on the year, and at one point, had a 17-match winning streak, during which they won 39 of 42 sets, including two-out-of-three against Pella Christian. Despite the difference in records, head volleyball coach, Cindy Nikkel, said that their match earlier in the year against Sacred Heart Dowling Catholic, a highly-ranked team in Class 5A, gave them the mindset that they could hang with anyone. Tonight’s match is at Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont and starts at 7:00 p.m.
