  • The turnouts were large, the coaches were sanguine, and the athletes were eager on Monday, the first day of spring practice at East Hampton High School.
  • Recently, I moved some of the Durants’ volumes, about 20 pounds’ worth, from my office bookcase to make room for others equally as edifying.
  • "It was a heartbreaker," said Bridgehampton's athletic director, Mike Miller.
  • Certainly had he had J.P. Harding, who has been averaging 21 points per game, available to him at Suffolk Community College-Selden Friday night, Carl Johnson would have given his Killer Bees a fighting chance at the tipoff.
  • Despite the fact that he has yet to reach his fourth birthday, Casey Jack Macnaughton can lay claim to being arguably — or perhaps inarguably — East Hampton Town’s best athlete.
  • David Brooks lamented the other day that Americans are tending to stay put, while in the past they moved about quite a bit, were more adventurous. The short answer to that, I think, is health care’s exigencies.
  • While it was raw and windy early Sunday morning, Vinny Alversa, East Hampton High’s new varsity baseball coach, had his charges — there were 17, a good number given that the winter break was not over — create a baseball diamond on the turf football field and begin catching fly balls, lofted into the outfield by a generator-operated machine, and fielding flies and grounders that he and the new junior varsity coach, Andrew Rodriguez, hit their way.
  • Numbers and safety concerns had prompted him to recently propose that the Bridgehampton School Board allow Bridgehampton to combine with South­ampton’s varsity while remaining with East Hampton at the junior varsity level, Mike Miller, the Bridgehampton athletic director, said last week. The board, he said, had approved his recommendation.
  • Asked by a colleague, with whom I share a birthday, how I’d spent mine, I said, “On the tarmac, in Houston — they couldn’t get us to a gate for the better part of an hour and kept thanking us for our patience.”
  • The Pierson High School girls basketball team went out in style this past week, avenging itself on Southold-Greenport, a feisty playoff semifinal foe that had bested it by 4 points in a recent regular-season clash, before being edged 46-43 in Saturday’s county Class C final by Port Jefferson, a team that had routed the Whalers the last time they had met, on Feb. 11.
