The 31st Mighty Hamptons Triathlon (.93-mile bay swim, 23.8-mile bike, and 6.2-mile run) is to be held at Long Beach, Sag Harbor, on Sunday beginning at 6:40 a.m.
Tom Eickelberg, a 23-year-old pro from Babylon, was last year’s winner, in 1 hour, 57 minutes, and 18 seconds. It was his first time at this race. At the time, Eickelberg said he didn’t think he’d been beaten on Long Island in the past couple of years. The women’s winner, and seventh over all, was Amy Bevilacqua, 37, of Wilton, Conn., in 2:07:32.
Hall of Fame
Joe Vas, School District Number One’s athletic director, has said that tickets to the Sept. 22 breakfast at which East Hampton High’s first Hall of Fame class is to be inducted are available to the public at $10 per ticket. Those who want to attend should make reservations with the high school’s athletic office (329-4143) by Sept. 15, he said.
The Hall of Fame inductees, Vas added, are to be honored at the 9 a.m. breakfast and at halftime of that night’s homecoming football game with Southampton.
