Congratulations to junior Gylia Dryden for being named Athlete of the Month. In her first year on varsity, Gylia has been a starting forward for the Pierson/Bridgehampton girls basketball team. In the team’s most recent playoff victory, Gylia led all scorers with 18 points while grabbing 12 boards as they routed Port Jefferson 47-32. Her presence was felt more on the defensive end as she controlled the paint by either blocking or altering numerous shots. Gylia has had great individual and team success this year in both volleyball and basketball. Even with all of her success, Gylia has remained humble and a great teammate. Prepare to hear more about Gylia in the future, as she has only scratched the surface of her full potential!
