The East Hampton High School wrestling team placed sixth among the eight schools that vied here Saturday in the Sprig Gardner tournament, an all-day tourney that officially opens Bonac’s wrestling season.
It was expected that Ward Melville and Hauppauge would fight it out for the top spot, and they did, with Hauppauge winding up the winner. Ward Melville, whose Nick Piccininni was voted the tournament’s most outstanding wrestler, placed second.
The East Hampton High School boys basketball team was to have played three games last week, but wound up playing just one, here with Shoreham-Wading River on Dec. 11.
That game went down to the wire, with East Hampton coming up on the short end of a 49-48 score.
