  • Kai Costanzo had been planning to do the Serpent’s Back Duathlon’s relay with his cousin, but the latter was a no-show at Ed Ecker County Park in Montauk Sunday morning, so Costanzo ran, biked, and ran his way to the win in 1 hour, 25 minutes, and 36 seconds
  • Nick West, who, had he not suffered a broken foot in a semifinal win, would have provided East Hampton High School’s boys soccer team with considerably more firepower in its 2014 state final versus Rochester’s Greece Athena, which the Bonackers lost 4-2, has been the collegiate men’s soccer scoring leader — that’s D-III, D-II, and D-I — in the nation this fall.
  • East Hampton High’s girls volleyball and swimming teams continued undefeated in league competition this past week, one in which the field hockey team won three in a row, the boys and girls soccer teams won twice, the golf team, avenging itself on Westhampton Beach at the South Fork Country Club, might have played itself into a three-way share of the League VIII title, and the boys volleyball team won for the first time this season.
  • When a woman with whom we were talking one night at Cittanuova said she had never felt she was any better or any less than anyone else, I said, “That’s it.”
  • A month from now we’ll know if there will be a course correction politically, as many hope, though how many will back up that hope by voting — presumably for a more evenhanded, more thoughtful, less lacerating society — remains to be seen. I hope there’ll be a record midterm turnout.
  • More than 1,500 athletes competed in long-distance road races and triathlons here this past weekend, a good one weather-wise.
  • James Bradley, a seventh grader who was a welcome addition to East Hampton High School’s golf team this fall, recently advanced, through a regional qualifier on the Winged Foot course in Mamaroneck, to the national Drive, Chip, and Putt finals at the Augusta National Golf Club next April.
  • East Hampton High’s junior varsity football team gave pretty much as well as it got in Monday’s game here with Port Jefferson, which wound up a 28-20 winner as night was about to fall.
  • Theresa Roden’s “transformation through triathlon” empowerment program for adolescent girls took its first steps at the Springs School in 2010, and now, on the verge of its 10th anniversary, I-Tri’s stride has greatly lengthened and strengthened.
  • They say “The Bookshop” is boring, which, of course, quickened my pulse. I have loved boring movies for years, and, in fact, once suggested that a new studio, M.B.M. (More Boring Movies), be formed to market them.
