For the second straight year, tonight, Pella Christian and Eddyville-Blakesburg’s volleyball teams meet up in the second round of the Class 2A regional volleyball tournament. The Rockets have been sitting on a bye waiting for who they would be facing. The Eagles swept Cardinal of Eldon exactly one week ago, and tonight are hoping to avenge last year’s loss to the Rockets, where they won the first two games of the set but lost the next three to drop the match. Coach Cindy Nikkel says there are still players on the team and former Eagles on the coaching staff that remember last year’s heartbreak, and she hopes, a little bit at least, that they use it as motivation for tonight. Tonight’s second round match is scheduled to begin at seven.
