  • The East Hampton High School girls volleyball team, which had cruised through league play undefeated this fall, at 12-0, and which seemed poised to win the county’s Class A championship and possibly go upstate for the first time since 2009, was dealt a cruel blow here Monday by fifth-seeded Kings Park, a well-balanced team like the Bonackers, but one that in the end that afternoon made fewer mistakes.
  • So, is it to be AR-15s for all? One would think so given the shoulder-shrugging by officialdom that greets massacre after massacre. Oh well, there will always be crazies — a few bad eggs in the barrel. Can’t let them spoil it for everyone, this being a God-fearing and gun-loving country.
  • East Hampton High’s girls swimming team, which cruised through the league season undefeated, winning its second championship in a row, placed sixth among the 25 schools contending in the county championship meet at Suffolk Community College-Brentwood Saturday — in fourth place, its coach, Craig Brierley, noted, absent the points award for diving, an event in which the Bonackers do not compete.
  • A half dozen women in their 40s who train at Ed and Caroline Cashin’s Truth Training fitness studio in East Hampton ran in the New York City Marathon Sunday, and for most of them it was their first attempt at the grueling 26.2-mile distance.

  • East Hampton High’s girls swimming team, while not the official winner of the League III meet at Hauppauge High School on Oct. 24, finishing second over all to Sayville-Bayport, bested everyone in the swimming events.
  • Vinny Alversa, who has been a physical education teacher and boys soccer and baseball coach at the Springs School during the past 20 years, was the chief honoree at that school’s first-ever homecoming last Thursday, in a gym packed with about 300 students.
  • When, after her East Hampton High School girls volleyball team had swept through the Westhampton Beach Hurricanes 3-0, sealing an undefeated league season, Kathy McGeehan was asked how many undefeated teams she’d had in the past, she directed her questioner’s gaze upward. The first banner he saw was that of her 2002 team, which, indeed, had been undefeated.
  • My father used to say all I did was watch balls go back and forth, and so it has been — volleyballs, basketballs, soccer balls, tennis balls, baseballs, rugby balls, footballs . . . though, come to think of it, not so many footballs anymore.
