Meanwhile the Raiders took advantage of the extra attention given to Bair to set up open 3-point opportunities. Lauren Cohen, Rocky LaPonte, and Alex Wilharm combined for four 3-pointers in the first quarter as Glenbard South surged to a 22-15 lead.
Sterling then failed to convert a field goal until the final possession of the second quarter and went to half trailing 33-18.
“I am still a little bit shocked by them,” Sterling coach Taylor Jackson said. “They [Glenbard South] can come at you from a lot of different directions. The effort and hustle was great tonight, but we didn’t execute some of the little things at times and that cost us against a team like that.
“It was a great effort, and we hope that the girls that are coming back can build off this and continue to move this program forward.”
Brooklyn Borum added six points, six rebounds, and three steals for Sterling, while Gretchen Gould had seven points and four rebounds.
Cohen scored 15 for Glenbard South, hit three 3-pointers and dished out three assists.
