The girls basketball team is enjoying one of the most successful seasons in school history. They captured an undefeated regular season league title on senior night vs Mattituck. The Pierson Mattituck match up was highly anticipated and had enough buzz in the girls basketball community that News 12 sent a camera crew. Then they followed that up with victories in the county tournament over Smithtown Christian and Mattituck to clinch the B/C/D Suffolk County Title. In the B/C/D game Katie Kneeland scored her 1000th point, only the third female to accomplish this feat at Pierson. The girls fell to Mount Sinai in the Suffolk County Small Schools Championship.
With a successful regular season and County Tournament behind them the girls are preparing for the State Tournament. On March 9 they will be playing the winner of Section I/IX in the Southeastern Regional Championship game for the right to advance to the State Final Four at Hudson Valley Community College. The Southeastern Regional game will be played at SUNY New Paltz or Pace University depending on the outcome of the Section I/IX game.
The game time and venue for March 9 will be announced on March 5.
