Richie Daunt’s right thumb and hand, injured a little over a year ago in a Pure Breed boxing tournament in the Bronx during a bout he won — an injury that kept him out of last winter’s Golden Gloves — is healed now, and the 141-pounder from Montauk is ready to go.
“I’ll either be fighting a Golden Gloves match at the B.B. King Blues Club in Times Square on Jan. 28 or on the 30th,” he said during a conversation this week at The Star. “They don’t tell you when you’re fighting until a week before.”
The East Hampton High School boys swimming team won two meets this week, improving its league mark to 2-1.
A meet at the Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter on Jan. 13 with North Babylon was a walkover. The visitors, whose team had reportedly been depleted by illness, brought only a half dozen swimmers. Craig Brierley, East Hampton’s coach, gave the score as 62-56, but he was generous in doing so, “exhibitioning” his entrants in a number of events.
