Jordan Roozeboom defeated two-time state qualifier Caleb Hamerlinck, and Jack Edwards and Carter Briggs each won in singles as well. The Pella boys head to the Johnston Invitational Saturday.
Pella’s girls tennis team lost for the first time this year against the Bombers of Ballard on the road, falling 9-2.
