Spirit Is Alive

On January 24, the Sag Harbor Booster Foundation hosted the ninth annual Spirit Night. It is an evening designed to showcase and celebrate the wonderful talents of our students.

The Sag Harbor Youth Hoopers showed their basketball skills in scrimmages and had a parade in front of the packed gym. Congratulations to John Cottrell and his team of volunteers for building up the basketball program and coaching 200-plus children, in grades K to six, every week.

The amazing performances of the national anthem by the Middle School and High School Chorus were led by Suzanne Nicoletti, Pierson’s choral teacher. They also filled the gym with the spirited singing of the school song.

The Pierson Robotics Team entertained the crowd during halftime with a robotic slam dunk.

And, last but not least, our talented varsity girls and boys basketball teams both came away with wins!

It takes many hands to make Spirit Night happen, and we appreciate each and every person who volunteered their time.

The Sag Harbor Booster Foundation would like to thank: Tammie Wilson, Fran Nill, Meg Kinney, Jill Kelsey, Kristen Schiavoni, Barbara Federico, Susan Schaefer, Jody Miller, Suzanne Nicoletti, Sue Duff, J.R. Wilson, Schiavoni IGA, the custodial staff, Principal Jeff Nichols, the security staff, and, of course, Athletic Director Eric Bramoff, who kept things on schedule and emceed the night’s event.

We also would like to extend a special thank you to Sag Pizza and East Hampton Clubhouse, who donated prizes for the Half-Court Shot Contest, which is held at every home varsity game. And we are always grateful for the Sag Harbor Fire Department and Sag Harbor Police Department, who continually support our students and community.
