Whalers Golf Comes Up Short with Title on the Line

Posted on 15 October 2014

Arnold Palmer once called the sport of golf both rewarding and maddening at the same time, words that might have resonated in the minds of the Pierson golf team late Tuesday afternoon.

After notching one of the biggest wins in program history—a 7-2 pounding of the previously unbeaten Southampton Mariners on their own home course—Pierson suffered one of the more painful defeats in recent memory, a 6.5-2.5 loss to East Hampton that might cost the program its first league title in 51 years.

Some grew up learning to putt alongside their dads and granddads on the sand greens at the Sag Harbor Golf Club, while others learned to play on the manicured fairways at the Noyac Golf Club. Despite their various backgrounds or how they came to love the game of golf, one thing is common among this current group of Pierson Whalers.

These boys have serious game.

Pierson Boys Soccer Nets Key Victory

Posted on 01 October 2014

Going into Tuesday’s game against second-place Smithtown Christian, Pierson boys soccer coach Peter Solow was concerned about his team’s defensive presence. Despite winning the first six games of the League VIII season, Solow said the team’s opponents to date have been unable to capitalize on “too many mistakes” committed by the Whalers as a team.

Solow’s concerns were quieted, at least for a day on Tuesday, as the Whalers escaped with a key 1-0 victory over the visiting Crusaders to improve to a perfect 7-0 atop the league standings.
