Several Pella and Pella Christian alumni competing at college in the NAIA will have to wait for their chances at championships this fall. According to announcements this week, the league overseeing schools including Dordt University, Northwestern College, Trinity Christian College, and Morningside College, will have all fall sports championship playoffs held in the spring, including football, volleyball, soccer, and cross country. Several Tulip City alumni are members of rosters in the NAIA, and some teams and conferences can elect to still have some fall competition, but the playoffs won’t begin until the new calendar year.
