Five In The News

Local sports notes

   Five female athletes from East Hampton were in the news this past week.
   Maddie Minetree, a freshman at Rollins College in Florida, and her three 800-meter relay teammates broke the school record by 13 seconds at a regional meet in Fort Lauderdale over the weekend, qualifying for the National Collegiate Athletic Association meet that is to be held in Birmingham, Ala., in March. It’s the first time that a Rollins relay team has done so.
   Also, in Sunday’s Newsday, the following East Hampton High School juniors were cited as all-Long Island selections: Marina Preiss, second team girls swimming; Raya O’Neal, second team girls volleyball, and Gillian Neubert and Daniella Dunphy, second team girls tennis.
