The Pella Christian girls basketball team is aiming to start the conference season strong when they travel to Oskaloosa tomorrow.

Head Coach Kevin Van Maanen was impressed with his 2-1 team’s overall effort Tuesday against ADM in their 52-28 victory, especially after an uneven start the season before Thanksgiving.

Van Maanen is still seeking slight improvements this week at practice after the solid performance–especially on defense, which he says is the biggest key to success for the season.
