Anne Bair #24

Name: Anne Bair
Height: 5’7
Graduation Year: 2022

Father’s Name: Jeff Bair
Mother’s Name: Sarah Bair

Anne Bair was the catalyst of the 2019-20 Gettysburg High School team that was one of the remaining eight 5A schools in the PIAA tournament when play was suspended.  A bonafide winner in every aspect of the game, she has the physical tools, basketball skills, and intangibles to thrive at the next level.  This was recognized as she was selected to the PIAA 5A All State team as a sophomore.  

Offensively, Anne fits the mold of a traditional pass first point guard.  She thrives in the open floor, really looking for opportunities to push the ball or hit ahead and attack the defense before they are set.  Bair is constantly surveying the floor for her teammates, putting them in positions to score.  Her quick first step in conjunction with her deceptive handle often leads to penetrating the defense where she finishes, gets fouled, or finds open teammates.  Her ability to shoot the ball off the catch with range forces defenses into difficult closeouts which she happily exploits.  As a freshman and sophomore Bair was a low turnover player at the varsity level anchoring her team to back to back district title games and two trips to the state playoffs.  

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Anne is going to bring it every possession looking for the challenge of guarding the opponent’s top player.  She has shown both a willingness and effectiveness in locking down perimeter players.  On the ball, she shows exceptional quickness and anticipation as she often can disrupt the opposition’s timing simply by keeping their best player under duress.  Off the ball, she demonstrates her high IQ by reading steals from the weak side and being in position to draw charges.  Her endless motor and ability to carry the load on both offense and defense is reflective of her running success in track and cross country.
