  • East Hampton High School’s golf team, which recently finished in a three-way tie for the League VIII cham­pionship with Southampton and Pierson-Bridgehampton, won the league tournament at the Rock Hill Golf Club in Manorville last Thursday.

    The team was led by its number-two, Stephen Kane, who in finishing the tourney as the runner-up shot a 79. Turner Foster, the eighth grader who plays number-one for the Bonackers, and Jack Bistrian tied for fifth.

  • Monday was a wonderful one for Bonac sports — East Hampton High School's boys soccer and boys volleyball teams won playoff games here, advancing to county championship contests Thursday.
  • Returning from an ever so brief visit to D.C., where we — Mary, I should say — baby-sat two grandchildren, and I tended largely to the basic needs of a pug who had a heavily bandaged foot (the result of a torn, bleeding toenail), we listened with fascination to NPR’s “TED Radio Hour” as scientists traced (ever so briefly) what’s been going on for the past 13.8 billion years.

  • The Montauk Rugby Club capped its fall season with a hard-fought 32-29 win over the New York R.C. at East Hampton’s Herrick Park Saturday before an appreciative crowd that included a number of Montauk alums who had come out not only to see the finale, but also in memory of Ron Jensen, a popular former forward who died at the age of 44 this past week in Jupiter, Fla.

    “New York is a really good team, definitely the best we’ve played all season,” said Rich Brierley, one of Montauk’s coaches, during a conversation Monday.

  •  The East Hampton High School boys soccer team, which had, with a 1-0 victory over Elwood-John Glenn here on Columbus Day, clinched at least a share of the League VI title, claimed it outright on Oct. 21, defeating Amityville here by a like margin.

    The Bonackers, coached by Rich King and Don McGovern, thus finished the regular season undefeated, at 10-0-2. It is the school’s fourth consecutive league title, and its fifth in the past six years.

  • The East Hampton High School boys volleyball team, with an exciting come-from-behind win in five here over Eastport-South Manor Monday, put itself in position to grab the top seed in the county small schools tournament that is to begin next Monday.

    In any event, Josh Brussell, the team’s coach, said East Hampton, whether it were seeded one or two, would have a home game Monday at 4 p.m., after the Class A boys soccer semifinal, which is to begin on Bonac’s turf field at 2.

  • “Woody Hayes used to say that a tie was like kissing your sister,” Claude Beudert, East Hampton High School’s golf coach, said Monday in reviewing the Bonackers’ season. “Well, I have some wonderful sisters.”

  • I thought briefly of saying, “On my backhand” when asked the other day during our weekly editorial conference what I was working on, but demurred.

  • An expected win over West Babylon Tuesday would have assured the East Hampton High School girls swimming team another winning league record, at 3-2, and a 5-2 overall mark heading into the league and county championships.

    “Things have pretty much gone according to plan,” Craig Brierley, the team’s first-year coach, said following last Thursday’s 106-59 win at the Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter. Brierley, who also coaches the boys team, was drafted by the girls as their coach after John McGeehan had retired.

  • Two students from Japan, holding up floppy arrows, pointed the way to the finish line, a student from China was the winner, and an 11-year-old — an apparent record in road-racing here — topped the females in the five-kilometer Run for Ross in East Hampton Village Saturday morning.

    It was, in short, a day for celebrating diversity and possibility.
