  •  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.

  • East Hampton High’s boys cross-country team vied for a league championship at Sunken Meadow State Park on Oct. 13, coming up a bit short, losing 20-39 to Bayport-Blue Point, the state’s seventh-ranked team, while defeating Westhampton Beach 23-39 and Shoreham-Wading River, last year’s league champ, 25-37.

    East Hampton’s Erik Engstrom, a junior, won the League VI race outright, in a school-record time of 16 minutes and 9 seconds, “though Bayport had the next five kids,” said Kevin Barry, East Hampton’s veteran coach.

  • Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel has said that when you hit 75 you ought not to bother with any medical intervention, the statistics showing plainly that our body’s inevitable decline begins then.

    My ears perked up when I heard this — one is glad that anything perks up at my age — given that my 75th birthday looms in February.

    “Well, perhaps I’ll begin refusing medical assistance when I reach 85,” I said to Mary, who, bless her, says she wants to keep me around for a while longer.

  • A 2-1 win here over Forest Park on Sunday combined with Port Jefferson’s 3-2 loss to A.C. Glen Cove that day enabled East Hampton to climb into a first-place tie with Port Jeff at the top of the Long Island Soccer Football League’s top division at 12 points each.
        East Hampton, which had defeated Glen Cove 3-1 at the Ross School field on Oct. 5, found Forest Park, which has only won one game thus far, to be a tough opponent.

  • The East Hampton High School boys cross-country team was to have run for the league championship at Sunken Meadow State Park Tuesday in a meet in which all seven of League VI’s schools were entered.
