The Pierson-Bridgehampton volleyball team, which is in the midst of one of its best seasons in the program’s short history, knocked off visiting Port Jefferson, 3-1, on Tuesday in the team’s “Dig Pink” game, which helps raise awareness about Breast Cancer. The win was a nice bounce back after the team lost a non-league match, 3-0 (25-10, 25-14, 25-20), to Hampton Bays on Friday.
“The girls played a tough game and really hustled,” head coach Donna Fischer said about the match against the Lady Baymen. “Hampton Bays was much scrappier than us and we were surprised when the ball came right back at us.”
Lily Kunzeman had 11 serves, Tatyana Dawson had seven serves and seven kills and Jenna Hochstedler had six serves and eight kills to lead the Lady Whalers against Hampton Bays.
May Evjen had 20 serves, 16 digs and 14 assists against Port Jeff, while Kunzeman had another big game with 36 digs and 20 kills. Bridget Canavan had 25 digs, 15 serves and 13 kills in the match, which Pierson won 25-22, 25-14, 22-25, 25-15.
