A former Lady Whaler has proven to be a thorn in the side of the Pierson/Bridgehampton girls volleyball team.

Liz Robbins, a Stony Brook sophomore and Sag Harbor native who once patrolled the court for Pierson as an eighth-grader, led the Lady Bears to a 3-0 victory at Pierson on Monday. Stony Brook, which came from behind to beat Pierson in the Suffolk County Class C final last winter, won the first two games in convincing fashion (25-16, 25-17) before holding on to win the deciding third game, 25-21.

After starting the season 3-0 in League VIII, the defending league champion Lady Whalers got all they could handle against Stony Brook on Monday and in Pierson’s third annual Varsity Volleyball Tournament held at the high school on Saturday morning. After playing two preliminary matches, Pierson faced Stony Brook to determine who would face Southampton in the final match. Stony Brook won and went on to defeat Southampton in the final, as Pierson finished third.

A total of seven teams competed with Hampton Bays, Greenport/Southold, Mercy and Port Jefferson joining Stony Brook, Southampton and Pierson.
