EWING — Senior Stephanie Bode set a Wolfpack record Saturday, scoring 40 points to help lead EPPJ to a 75 to 73 overtime victory over Niobrara-Verdigre in the opening round of the NVC Girls Basketball Tournament.
No one ever wearing a Wolfpack uniform has ever ripped the nets quite like the 5’9” senior did on this occasion. And the Wolfpack needed every single point to hold off the Lady Cougars who rallied from a 15-point deficit in the second half, then led in overtime before EPPJ rallied for the victory.
