It has been a whale of a high school baseball season for Pierson/Bridgehampton. At the same time, it wasn’t a bad season for Southold, either.
In Southold’s case, it was a matter of entering the season with only three returning players from last year in Luke Hansen, Billy Burns and Joe Hayes.

Jem Sisco added an interesting chapter to that history Saturday when the Southampton pitcher threw a two-hit shutout with 13 strikeouts on his home field. The senior righthander with a dramatically high leg kick, had a no-hitter going through 4 1/3 innings before turning in his first complete game of the season, a 3-0 Suffolk County League VIII triumph.
