The Pella High boys’ and girls’ track and field teams have been nothing short of impressive so far this season, and they’ll each continue their outdoor season with a trip to the Panther Relays today. The Little Dutch won last year’s event by 38 points over Knoxville, while the Lady Dutch came in second to Oskaloosa even with a team that had several girls leave early because of Prom. Coach Brent Van Hauen and Dak Rasmussen hope for stronger efforts from their teams as the season really gets going for all teams after this weekend. First events start racing at 11.
