Going winless in Iowa City, Pella Christian’s volleyball team returns to Little Hawkeye Conference play tonight when they head to Newton. The Eagles’ 2 – 10 record is very deceiving; they are 2 – 4 against Class 5A schools, with other losses coming to Dallas Center-Grimes twice, highly-touted Eddyville-Blakesburg, and Davenport North, just to name a few. The Cardinals come in 8 – 4 overall with a 1 – 0 mark in the conference. Newton brings several seniors to the table, seven of them seniors, and Coach Cindy Nikkel says they have some offensive weapons. The conference varsity match will start at around 7:15 p.m. this evening.
