Pella Christian’s girls’ basketball team picked up where they left off last year, defeating Martensdale – St. Mary’s last night, 59 – 48 to open up their season. Coach Kevin Van Maanen tells KNIA/KRLS Sports that her girls played well for their first game, but had troubles breaking the press. Lauren Jungling led the Eagles with 23 points, Hannah Beltman had a double-double with ten points and ten rebounds, and Tessa Howerzyl bucketed 11. Van Maanen also said he will be working on his team’s man-on-man defense before their next game, which is this Tuesday against Albia.
