The girls celebrate the 2009 County Championship

On this day nine years ago, the girls’ basketball team clinched their fifth consecutive League Championship with a 69-22 win over Pierson. It was also the Bears’ 49th win in their previous 50 league games.

The Bears finished the season undefeated and went on to win a fourth consecutive Suffolk County Championship, the program’s second Long Island Championship, and the program’s first Regional Championship and State Final Four berth.

Monday night Pierson played the toughest team in League VIII. The Lady Whalers lost to undefeated Stony Brook by 47 points.

Although the Lady Whalers are already in the playoffs, losing to the Lady Bears, gives them a 5-3 record in their league games.

Stony Brook took ownership of the Pierson court from the very beginning of the game, holding the Lady Whalers to just three points the first quarter. Approaching the half, the Lady Whalers only managed another three points, bringing the score to 6-42.

The third quarter was even worse for Pierson, as the Lady Bears held them to just two points —giving the Bears a near 50-point lead, 8-57.

During the fourth quarter, the Pierson Lady Whalers finally put double digits on the board, outscoring Stony Brook, with 14 points to Stony Brook’s 12 —but it wasn’t enough for the win.
