South is making its first quarterfinals appearance in the program’s 25-year history, and the Lady War Eagles proved it isn’t afraid of the state’s juggernaut programs after knocking off defending champion Norcross in a 62-50 overtime win Monday on the road. South sophomore guard Sarah Myers led the way with 22 points, but the Lady War Eagles’ tough defense and clutch free throw shooting (15-for-19 in overtime) really stood out.
