  • 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.

  • “It seems like nothing much has changed,” I said to Mary as we were watching “To Kill a Mockingbird” the other night, though I know it is frequently said in connection with Martin Luther King’s birthday that we have come a long way.

    For the young people who pro­tested in cities throughout the country on Jan. 19, and who claim­ed that the import of the holiday was being hijacked, it was not just a day off.

  • Forfeits continued to hamper the East Hampton High School wrestling team this past week, but the heavier half of the lineup by the same token continued to impress.

    At the Port Jefferson invitational tournament Saturday, Steve Tseperkas, Bonac’s coach, for the first time, he thought, in more than a decade, had three competitors — Colton Kalbacher, at 152 pounds, Axel Alanis, at 195, and Josh King, at 285 — make the finals.

  • Despite having lost by 14 points here to Amityville on Dec. 15, Bill McKee, who coaches East Hampton High School’s boys basketball team, was fairly confident on the eve of the teams’ second meeting, in Amityville’s rather dark and forbidding gym, that the Bonackers could redeem themselves.

    And, indeed, they did, emerging, thanks to Brandon Kennedy-Gay’s 4-for-4 foul-shooting in the final seconds, as a 61-59 winner last Thursday night.

  • The East Hampton High School boys track team, thanks in part to T.J. Paradiso and Erik Engstrom’s school-record performances in the 1,000-meter and 3,200-meter races, finished third among the eight teams vying in the League V meet at Suffolk Community College-Brentwood Sunday night.

  • How we react to suffering is one of the questions raised in David Margulies’s arresting play, “Time Stands Still.”

    That it is a fact of life we know, something we all must endure, to varying extents. Should we embrace it? Should we avert our gaze inasmuch as we are able? Should we accept beauty and suffering as the opposite sides of the same coin?

  • Talk about burning the nets: East Hampton High’s three guards, Kyle McKee, Brandon Kennedy-Gay, and Kevin Fee, put on a show at Bonac’s gym last Thursday night, making good on 17 of the 26 shots they took from beyond the 3-point arc in a 76-51 rout of Bayport-Blue Point, which had come into the game undefeated.
