The Pella High School boys and girls cross country teams go into today’s Little Hawkeye Conference meet ranked 4th and 8th, respectively in Class 3A and both sides are hoping to come away with conference titles. Little Dutch Coach Doug Cutler says it’s been his athletes’ goal all season to win conference, and says his veteran leaders have kept the squads on track.

“We’ve got a real experienced team. I don’t have to do as much as people would imagine.
