Bill Herzog, who coaches East Hampton High’s boys track team, was singing the spring vacation blues this past week, bemoaning the fact that of a squad of 36 only 11 had showed up for Saturday’s invitational at Westhampton Beach.
The East Hampton Football Club remains in third place in the Long Island Soccer Football League’s premier division with recent wins over Oceanside United, Forest Park, and Real New York.

The East Hampton High School boys tennis team clinched the league title — and remained undefeated in league play — in a 4-3 squeaker over Westhampton Beach here on April 20.
Noah Avallone, 8, who recently became a national champion in the sport, first snowboarded, his father, Mike, said, “at the age of 18 or 20 months, at Third House here in Montauk. We strapped him in and pushed him down the hill and he stayed on, and he had a big smile on his face.”
Mountaineering is not something to be undertaken idly, and so Lisa Ruiz, who is soon to climb Denali (formerly Mount McKinley) in Alaska, the highest peak in North America, climbed Mount Rainier last month to reacclimate herself to the sport, and has been training on treadmills and stairs this past year toting a 60-pound backpack.
Theresa Roden’s I-Tri (transformation through triathlon) program for teenage girls in schools that span William Floyd and Montauk is to benefit from a spin with Roland Walker at the Sag Harbor Gym on May 15.
