A Special Team - 27 East

A Special Team

It has been an amazing varsity volleyball season for the Pierson/Bridgehampton girls, and it is a bittersweet feeling now that our season has come to an end.

Our league season record was 9-3, and the overall record was 11-3. The most exciting time was postseason, when the rotations are finalized and practices are intensified, and the girls do “whatever it takes” to keep moving ahead.

Playing against our biggest rival — the Mattituck Tuckers — for the Suffolk County Championship was an incredible match, and the victory really propelled the girls to keep pushing hard to prepare for regionals. They went on to beat Oyster Bay at “The Battle of the Counties” to send us back to the state finals for the second time in Pierson history!

I am overwhelmed by the amount of support the community of Sag Harbor has shown during our season. Thank you to the administrators, the Board of Education, my Sag Harbor Elementary School and Pierson school family, from students to teachers to scorekeepers to the parents; to the photographers and sportswriters; to Goldberg’s, Sag Pizza and Jeff Peters, for helping to feed the girls; and to the Sag Harbor Fire Department, for escorting the team in their victory parade downtown.

The athletes love and appreciate all that everyone has done to support them. I am honored to be a part of such a special team in such a special community — the Team of Sag Harbor Village.

Yours in volleyball,

Donna Fischer
