  • Nick West, a former East Hampton High School soccer star, scored his 25th and 26th goals of the season Sunday as Messiah College, for which he plays, defeated Johns Hopkins 2-0 in a second-round National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III playoff game.
  • The Old Montauk Athletic Club was expected to receive about $5,000 from the proceeds of Saturday’s Brewathlon relay race in Montauk, a rowing, biking, running, rowing contest that originally was to have taken place at the Montauk Brewery on Oct. 27.
  • The Day of the Dead was lively and bright. The sun streamed through the trees in the early morning, and in the afternoon it was so warm that the tennis lesson to which I’d taken our granddaughter was held outside. I couldn’t recall a First of November being so gentle.
  • The second leg of what has come to be known as Montauk’s Grand Prix, the 3.3-mile Dock race, attracted more than 220 entrants Sunday, a record. The entries included scooters, skateboards, baby strollers, bicycles of all sizes, and dogs of all sizes.
  • 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.
