Local Sports Notes

Dock Race

The revived Dock Race, from the post office in downtown Montauk to George and Chris Watson’s Dock bar and restaurant on Lake Montauk, will be held Sunday at 11:30 a.m. “Everyone will get a T-shirt and free beer afterward,” said George Watson, adding that the entry fee would be $20.

Last year’s race attracted 188 entrants and was won by Ryan Fowkes, East Hampton High’s top cross-country runner, in 20 minutes and 4 seconds. The distance is 3.3 miles give or take.

 

Denison Wins

Alyssa Bahel, who plays left wing on Denison University’s field hockey team, celebrated with her teammates Denison’s 2-1 win over Wittenberg in the North Coast Athletic Conference championship game Saturday. The team was to have played a first-round N.C.A.A. Division III game at Washington and Lee in Lexington, Va., yesterday. The winner will play at Messiah College, in Mechanicsburg, Pa., this Saturday.

Denison, in Glanville, Ohio, brought a 15-game winning streak into yesterday’s matchup with Washington and Lee, a team that it had defeated in the regular season.

 

Going Upstate

Pierson (Sag Harbor) High School’s teams have been prominent in the playoffs, especially boys soccer, which this week — for the first time — advanced to the state’s Final Four as the result of defeating S.S. Seward 3-1 in a regional final.

Sam Warne scored two of the Whalers’ goals, the second, which clinched it, a header that converted a chipped pass from Luis Padilla with about six minutes to go. Jorge Alvarado tacked on the third goal in the final two minutes. Grady Burton got the assist.

Pierson had won the county Class C title by defeating Southold 1-0 on a goal by Alvarado in the first half.

The Whalers’ field hockey team, also a county champion, by a score of 4-0 over Babylon, lost 2-0 to Carle Place in the Long Island Class C championship game. It was the second year in a row that the Frogs had eaten the Whalers’ dreams of going upstate.

Pierson’s girls volleyball team was to have played Stony Brook in the county Class C championship match Tuesday. Stony Brook defeated the Whalers twice, by 3-0 scores, during the regular season.

 

Ultimate Champ

Sas Peters of Amagansett last weekend played on the Minneapolis-based team that won the world great grandmasters (over-50) Ultimate disc championship in Sarasota, Fla.

Peters, who is 61, has been in demand lately, having been invited not only to play with the Surly Boys — the team that just won the great grandmasters title — but also with an all-star team, Currier Island, that competed in the world beach Ultimate great grandmasters championships in Meco, Portugal, last June, and with a team that competed in the North American grandmasters (over-40) mixed division in Montreal in September.

Asked how he trained to keep up with the fast-paced sport, Peters said he pedals a stationary bike, lifts weights, and does plyometrics exercises originally designed for East German sprinters.
