Three Class D boys basketball teams — Shelter Island, Greenport, and Bridgehampton — were battling for playoff spots as of this week.
Bridgehampton’s Killer Bees, whose record was 6-7 as of Tuesday morning, needed to win two of their final three regular-season games to make it. Ditto Greenport, which also was 6-7 as of Tuesday morning. Shelter Island, which was at 7-6 going into its Tuesday afternoon game at home with the Bees, needed to win one of its final three.
Lucas Escobar, the East Hampton High School senior who wrestles at 120 pounds, improved his record to 30-2, defeating five opponents, four of them in Saturday’s invitational tournament at Port Jefferson.
These wins give him 93 for his career, seven short of joining Eric Kaufman, who’s in East Hampton’s Hall of Fame, in “the century club.”
