  • The East Hampton High School boys basketball team has been seeded third in the county tournament’s Class A bracket, setting up a home game with sixth-seeded Islip Tuesday at 6 p.m.

    Bayport-Blue Point, the League VI champion, was awarded the A’s top seed; Harborfields was seeded second.

    Bill McKee, East Hampton’s coach, said his team’s seeding was about what he had expected. “It will be nice to play at home,” he said. “Islip has the county’s high-scorer, a guard, so it should be interesting.”

  • The East Hampton High School wrestling team, as the result of high finishes in Saturday’s League VI tournament, which was held here, is sending five competitors to the county meet, which is to be held this weekend at Hofstra University.

    Colton Kalbacher, a 152-pound senior, got the furthest, finishing as the runner-up to the top seed, John Glenn’s Matt Porrello, by a score of 12-8.

  • The East Hampton High School boys basketball team, thanks to the lights-out long-range shooting of its three guards, Kyle McKee, Brandon Kennedy-Gay, and Kevin Fee, has largely lived — nay, thrived — by the 3 this season, though the Bonackers died by the 3 in the regular-season finale at Bayport-Blue Point last Thursday.

  • Nine members of East Hampton High School’s boys swimming team have qualified for the county meet that is to be held at Suffolk Community College-Brentwood Saturday, beginning at 10:30 a.m.

    The nine — Robert Anderson, Alex Astilean, Christian Brierley, T.J. Calabrese, Chasen Dubs, Chris Kalbacher, Tyler Menold, Rob Rewinski, and Harrison Kennedy — made the county cut at last Thursday’s league meet at Hauppauge High School.

  • I’ve been reading about Zen Buddhism lately, and was reminded of the Yogi Berra koans I’d seen at the Artists-Writers Game last August.

        Here are some:
        “The future ain’t what it used to be.”
        “It gets late early out here.”
        “We made too many wrong mistakes.”
        “Baseball is 90 percent mental — the other half is physical.”

  • I’ve been in recovery — clean — for almost a full month now, 29 days as a matter of fact, and while of course one always should be wary of a relapse, I think I’ve kicked the Facebook habit.

    I haven’t formally resigned — I doubt frankly that they let you — but I swear I have not clicked on it since we returned from a vacation at the end of December.

  • With two of its better performers, Chasen Dubs, the talented eighth grader, and Rob Rewinski, one of six seniors acknowledged that day by their coach, Craig Brierley, absent, the East Hampton High School boys swimming team lost 88-80 to West Islip at the Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter Saturday afternoon.

  • Greer Costello, a 5-foot powerhouse who’s a sixth grader at East Hampton’s middle school, is on a path to possibly making the national 11-to-12-year-old synchronized swimming team, which would be a first here.

  • Though as of this writing it was, because of the foul weather, difficult to say when the East Hampton High School boys basketball team’s last three regular-season games would be played, a share of the league title appeared to be in the offing should the Bonackers win out.

    They won their seventh straight at Mount Sinai on Friday, by a score of 64-45, though, according to Bill McKee, East Hampton’s coach, his players were “flat in the early going, falling behind 9-0 right away.”

  • Carl Johnson, who coaches Bridgehampton High’s boys basketball team, the Killer Bees, said on his return here that the trip to Syracuse last weekend had gone well, and that in the near future his players hope to go upstate again, to Glens Falls this time, to compete in the State Class D Final Four.

    Undefeated in league play, at 11-0, the Bees played two Class B teams in Syracuse, where Bridgehampton’s new athletic director, Eric Bramoff, who set the trip up, had taught for a decade before returning here.
