Keys for Pella
Limit self-inflicted mistakes and take care of business. Grinnell played Pella tough earlier this season despite the sweep. The Lady Dutch still have to show up but they are in great form coming off of last week’s conference tournament title. They have won nine of their last 10 matches. Look for them to grab another one on Tuesday and advance to the semifinals.
