  • The Dock Race, revived these past few years by George Watson’s son, Chris, a fitting warm-up for the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot, drew a large multigenerational crowd of runners, cyclists, skateboarders, baby strollers, walkers, and dogs to the starting line at the Montauk Post Office Sunday morning.
  • The Montauk rugby team continued to prove it can win at home (though rarely away) by defeating Rockaway, a team that had bested the Sharks earlier in the season, by a score of 25-15 here at Herrick Park on Saturday.
  • For the second time in the past three years East Hampton High’s boys cross-country team won a county championship at Sunken Meadow State Park, besting Class B’s field of eight teams on Friday.
  • East Hampton High School’s girls volleyball team, which proved compelling this season what with the strong all-around play of Mikela Junemann (especially at the net), the setting of Elle Johnson, and the grit of its defenders, Molly Mamay and — until she got hurt — Zoe Leach chief among them, lost a quarterfinal county playoff match in five here on Halloween after dropping the first two sets.
  • Recently, I listened for eight of 11 waking hours, sitting in on a Killer Bee reunion on a Friday night and, the following morning, attending an equally long Hall of Fame induction ceremony at East Hampton High School.
  • When Maureen Bluedorn, whose love of horses is evidenced in the fact that she bought a horse before she bought a house here, first spoke with Wick Hotchkiss some half-dozen years ago about setting up a not-for-profit foundation to provide local youngsters with scholarships so they could ride at Stony Hill Stables, she wasn’t sure the idea would fly.
  • The perennially strong Maidstone Market men’s soccer team, which has won back-to-back titles in the 7-on-7 league, whose games are played at East Hampton’s Herrick Park, trailed Hampton F.C.-Bill Miller, Bateman Painting, and F.C. Tuxpan in the standings this week, though that’s not unusual: Whether it winds up the regular season in first or fourth place, the Market always shows up in force for the playoffs.
  • I just know that this so-called tax reform plan, if what’s been intimated comes to be, will gore my ox, and probably will gore the oxen of numerous other members of the middle class here, this being a high-tax state where middle classers itemize.
  • The East Hampton High School boys cross-country team was a winner in the division meet’s championship race contested by 20 teams at Sunken Meadow State Park.
  • Hampton United, the over-30 men’s team that plays in the Suffolk Men’s Soccer League, ascended to first place in the Division I standings Sunday by virtue of a 6-2 win over previously undefeated Sporting America at Hampton Bays High School, H.U.’s home field.
