The Athletic Office will be working over the next several months toward the goal of providing our student-athletes with interscholastic athletics at the start of the new year.

At 8:20pm (coincidently 2020 military time), the scoreboard behind Pierson High School will show all 20’s as a tribute to our senior athletes, especially the spring athletes who lost their season. This is our way of saying thank you from the athletic department and Section XI. The scoreboard will be on for twenty minutes. You will be able to drive around the school in a clockwise manner to view the scoreboard from the Montauk Avenue parking Lot. We request that everyone practice social distancing and remain in your cars. Thank you for your support of Pierson Athletics, Lets Go Whalers!!
