The weather is definitely changing. Winter is in the air as the temps are dropping and we are having plenty of wind. Most of the boats have been pulled and covered for their winter hibernation.
The wind hampered the scalloping effort with only a few boats out everyday. Scalloping has not been as good as everyone predicted. But the good news is that there seems to be a good number of bugs (young scallops) for next year.

Here we are in November. Weather hasn’t been bad except for some frosty mornings and a few cool days. It still remains dry and it’s been that way most of the fall. We can just keep enjoying this great weather for as long as it lasts! The big news is that the much awaited scallop season has finally arrived. Rumors had circulated that here were many scallops while other predictions were not as positive. Monday, November 4 dawned to a miserable windy day. The northeast wind kept many ashore. For those of us who braved the elements, scallops weren’t plentiful.

Katherine Matthers, it seems, has a flair for the dramatic. And now she and her Lady Whalers teammates are taking their show on the road to Syracuse.
Pierson’s senior co-captain scored the game-winning goal with 5:36 remaining in double overtime to win a New York State Southeast Regional Class C field hockey final against Pawling High School in White Plains on Saturday.
Pierson-Bridgehampton will continue its run toward a state title starting next Saturday, November 16, with a semifinal game at Cicero-North Syracuse High School at 1:30 p.m. against either Whitney Point from Section IV or Pine Plains from Section IX.

What a week for the Pierson-Bridgehampton field hockey team. Three games, three wins, all against programs with New York State championship banners hanging in their gyms back home.
And now it’s the Lady Whalers turn to make a run at the ultimate prize.
Senior Katherine Matthers scored the game-winning goal, Kasey Gilbride had two goals and the Lady Whalers (13-4) claimed the Long Island Class C Championship with a 3-2 win over the Carle Place Lady Frogs Wednesday at Dowling College.

The Pierson-Bridgehampton girls volleyball team went from having one win all of last season to nine this year, including a 3-0 playoff victory over Stony Brook last Friday. The turnaround, led by a core of six seniors and first-year head coach Donna Fischer, has been nothing short of remarkable.
But the Lady Whalers’ party parade was brought to a halt on Monday at Patchogue-Medford High School, where top-ranked Shelter Island cruised in straight sets (25-15, 25-14, 25-21) to win the Suffolk County Class D Championship.

The Pierson girls cross country team lost, 26-38, to Stony Brook in the Suffolk County Class D Championship at Sunken Meadow State Park on Saturday. While Stony Brook was the favorite to win the race, the result was somewhat disappointing for the Lady Whalers, who lost to the Lady Bears by just a single point earlier this season

The Pierson-Bridgehampton boys soccer team lost, 5-2, to Southold in the Suffolk County Class C Championship at Diamond in the Pines Park in Coram on Saturday afternoon. It was the second consecutive year that Pierson had its season come to an end on the same field, in the same championship game.

As May Evjen tells it, it was all about the Halloween candy.
Jacked up on sugar, school spirit and a desire to reverse the trend of losing to the top two Class D schools in Suffolk County this year, the Lady Whalers on Friday went on the road and beat Stony Brook in straight sets (25-20, 26-24, 25-23) to advance to the Suffolk County final against Shelter Island on Monday.

Kasey Gilbride is a patient player, but only to a point.
Pierson’s senior field hockey star was kept in check for the first 30 minutes of the Suffolk County Class C final against Southampton at Dowling College on Thursday night. Once play resumed after a scoreless first half, however, the Lady Whalers and their senior star clicked into overdrive.

Todd Gulluscio toured the bumpy and beat-up grass field behind the Pierson Middle-High School Tuesday afternoon, kicking up chunks of dirt and dead grass while he spoke about a proposed new synthetic turf field that would “serve the entire community” and replace an area where approximately 500 students between the 6th and 12th grades recreate on a daily basis.
