The Pella High boys’ basketball team suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of Dallas Center-Grimes almost two weeks ago, but the Little Dutch “bounced back” against Carlisle with a narrow 64 – 61 win last Tuesday, but don’t tell head coach, Mark Core that.
“We’re on a journey, and some of the games aren’t going to turn out the way we want them to,” Core explained. “We had a good day of practice on (December 17), we played competitively (against Carlisle), and so, if your question is ‘Have we bounced back?’ Yeah, but I think we bounced back 15 minutes after we walked out of the gym at Grimes on (December 14).”
Core also explained that basketball is a game of runs, and they’ll be there to compete every single night. The Little Dutch are 5 – 1 right now with Pella Christian looming next on their schedule after the holiday break.
