  • Ryan Fowkes ran the fastest mile that’s been run here in 30 years at the St. Anthony’s invitational track meet Saturday, and on Monday the baseball team snapped what its coach, Vinny Alversa, said was a 51-game losing streak at Amityville, a school whose program has also been struggling in the past few years.
  • Spring began for me over the weekend of April 21 and 22. The weather was the best it’s been in six months, it seemed, and athletic things, all of a sudden, abounded — the Katy’s Courage 5K in Sag Harbor, baseball, youth lacrosse, and youth soccer games at East Hampton High School, and, at the Pantigo fields, Little League’s opening ceremonies — all in one day.
  • Sydney Salamy, an East Hampton High School junior who runs cross-country, came upon the idea not long ago, given the fact that she and her siblings, Drew, a baseball player, and Sienna, a softball player, were going through lots of sports gear, to pass this equipment on to needier kids on Long Island.
  • The East Hampton High School boys tennis team, as expected, assured itself of a share of the League VII title by virtue of a 6-1 win here Saturday over Rocky Point, thus finishing the regular season at 9-1, though — through no fault of his own — Kevin McConville, East Hampton’s first-year coach, flirted with a possible forfeit before the match began given the fact that he could not readily come up with seven cans of new tennis balls.
  • The men’s rugby team here, the Montauk Sharks, may be having a numbers problem, but the youth teams aren’t, according to Kevin Bunce, who coaches a high school-age side that’s playing a 15-on-a-side season now versus metropolitan area opponents.
  • The East Hampton High School softball team headed into the second half of the season on a warm — if not a hot — streak, having belayed Pierson 22-1 and pulled the rug out from Southold-Greenport 3-2 this past week, on the way to a third-straight win at Amityville on Friday.
  • “I dreamt I’d won a Peace prize. . . .” “No, no, that was my Peace prize,” corrected Mary, who recently had spent hours straightening out one of my bill-paying gaffes with State Farm, had painstakingly laid the groundwork for a tax grievance, and had raked leaves and edged until she was a physical wreck.
  • The weather was, at long last, spring-like when more than 600 runners set forth from Sag Harbor’s West Water Street in the eighth running of the Katy’s Courage 5K Saturday morning. It was the first road race here of the season.
  • A showdown between East Hampton and Westhampton Beach High Schools' second doubles teams with a league tennis championship hanging in the balance was played before a rapt crowd at Westhampton Monday afternoon.
  • As the East Hampton High School and Ross School boys tennis teams were playing in Ross’s bubble Monday, a question remained hanging as to whether a protest filed earlier that day with Section XI on behalf of Bonac’s coach, Kevin McConville, would be upheld or rejected.
