Sophia Peppers, a former standout for Exira-EHK now playing at Morningside College in Sioux City, was named the Great Plains Athletic Conference Player Of the Week in women’s basketball. Peppers averaged 23 points, six rebounds, three assists, a blocked shot and a half, and two steals per contest in leading the Mustangs to two wins, and extend their winning streak to five. Her back-to-back 20-point-plus efforts ran a personal string of such outings to three. Peppers was pivotal down the stretch in a win over Dordt Dec. 2, as she hit four straight free throw attempts and tallied eight points in the final seven minutes.
