The No. 9 story from Pella High School takes us to the tennis courts in the spring, where an individual Dutch athlete has made a multiple year state tournament run. On May 10th, Emily Blom won her third consecutive Singles Regional title at the state qualifier held at Pella Christian High School. Blom set her sights higher after two appearances at state before, and finished in 4th this year, winning her way to the semifinals. Emily enters her senior year this fall. This also won’t be the last time the Pella girls tennis team appears on the countdown.
