Pella High tennis teams on Thursday, as the boys were able to beat Oskaloosa, 9 – 2, while the Lady Dutch also beat the Indians 9 – 2 in their contests. The Little Dutch won the singles’ matches, 4 – 2, and Coach Nick Seipel had some JV kids playing in the five and six slot. His guys played some strong doubles matches to finish the night with a sweep, including an incredible third set tiebreaker won by Pella, 14 – 12. The Lady Dutch fought hard in every match, and only dropped one singles and one doubles contest. Pella’s girls will next play Saturday, as they’ll be hosting a high school invitational with Knoxville, Pella Chrsitian, Oskaloosa and Indianola in attendance, and the boys will next head to Norwalk this Monday.
