Frustrating was the word in the Pella Christian gym on Tuesday, as the Eagles’ volleyball team had chances to beat visiting Dallas Center-Grimes, but couldn’t quite get the job done, as they lost in five sets, 25 – 23, 21 – 25, 25 – 23, 15 – 25 and 10 – 15. Coach Cindy Nikkel had a couple of girls back in the rotation last night, but they just couldn’t find the momentum in the late going. Becca Gritters had 13 kills to lead her team and Logan De Graaf had seven. Pella Christian is now 2 – 6 on the season and 0 – 1 in conference play. The Eagles are off until Saturday to play in a tournament in Iowa City.
