Pierson basketball star Katie Kneeland is learning how to fly

Whether Katie Kneeland is soaring through the lane on the basketball court or flying high over Long Island’s East End, the senior at Pierson High School in Sag Harbor manages to keep herself grounded — even with lofty goals. Kneeland stars on the Pierson/Bridgehampton/Shelter Island girls basketball team, averaging 19.4 points per game in the regular season. The 17-year-old also has taken to the skies in pursuit of her private pilot’s license and has logged about 15 hours of flight time. She spoke about it on Jan. 27. (Credit: Gordon Grant)
