  • The Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter youth swim team, the Hurricanes, placed third among 39 entries — and in runner-up positions in the separate boys and girls divisions — in the state Y meet in Buffalo this past weekend, a showing that convinced the coach, Tom Cohill, that this was the most balanced team he’s ever taken to the states.
  • Vinny Alversa, East Hampton High’s varsity baseball coach, said Monday he wished his team were heading south on Tuesday for the Tampa Bay Spring Training complex in St. Petersburg, given the uncertain weather here, but he could be thankful at the same time that the Bonackers got in a scrimmage over the weekend in Moriches — a scrimmage with Hampton Bays that went very well.
  • Golden gloves are no longer the prize for winning what used to be The New York Daily News’s boxing tournament, though Richie Daunt, who won his second-round match Friday, will take whatever U.S.A. Boxing wants to give him. The organization oversees the tourney now, under the “The Road to the Garden” banner.
  • “It’s going to be so good this year,” Kathy Amicucci, coach of East Hampton High’s softball team, said at Friday’s indoor practice session when asked if the playoffs were in the offing.

  • Richie Daunt’s boxing record, thanks to a “Golden Gloves” win in Yonkers on March 1, is all even at 4-4. He hopes to make it 5-4 tomorrow night, in another 152-pound novice bout in Flushing.
  • “It’s sooo nice,” the young woman behind the counter at Trish Franey’s liquor store said last Wednesday evening.
  • Despite frequent offensive hiccups, Bridgehampton’s Killer Bees ate Livingston Manor’s dreams at Suffolk Community College-Brentwood Monday night, ultimately prevailing 50-48 in a state Class D regional semifinal that seemed in the early going as if it would go the Rockland County champion’s way.
