Linnea Peckham corrals the ball

On this day 6 years ago, the volleyball team electrified the home crowd with a thrilling win over Pierson in a Suffolk County Class C semifinal.

The Bears took the opening game by a narrow 27-25 margin, then grabbed the match’s momentum with a 25-15 game two win. The Lady Whalers bounced back in the third game, dominating it 25-14, then matched the Bears point-for-point in the next game. Buoyed by the raucous crowd in Swanson Gymnasium, the Bears won a tight fourth game, 28-26 to avoid a winner-take-all fifth game.

Natalie Istrati led the way for the second-seeded Bears with five kills and 6 blocks while Linnea Peckham added six kills.
