The Pella High Little Dutch boys’ basketball team is going into a tough game Friday, Feb. 14, at Grinnell after a 71-66 loss to Dallas Center-Grimes.

Indianola and Norwalk are tied for first place in the Little Hawkeye Conference at 15-3. The Dutch and Mustangs are tied for third at 14-5 apiece.

Logan Shetterly led the way for the Dutch in the DC-G game with 26 points, a rebound, two assists and two steals. Treyton Sturgeon had 15 points, six rebounds, a steal and an assist.
