  •     I’ve just been afforded a welcome opportunity to listen to a concerned, and perceptive, citizen regarding the recent election — he making a good case that one-party rule, whether Democrat or Republican, often doesn’t make for good governance.

  •     For the first time in three years, the Pierson (Sag Harbor) High School field hockey team is returning to the state Final Four.

  •     This was to have been the year for the East Hampton High School girls volleyball team inasmuch as the perennial county Class B champion, John Glenn, was not supposed to be as strong as it had been in the past.

        Well, Glenn, which defeated the Bonackers in four at Bay Shore High School on Nov. 6 to win yet another county Class B title, was strong enough.

  •     While, as expected, the East Hampton High School varsity football team lost at Babylon Friday night in a first-round county playoff game, the news was pretty much all good insofar as the sixth, seventh, and eighth graders went.

        The seventh-and-eighth-grade team, coached by Dave Fioriello, with Nick Finazzo and Scott Abran, finished the season undefeated this past week by shutting out previously undefeated Center Moriches 12-0 on the Red Devils’ field.

  •     Marina Preiss qualified for the state meet in the 50 and 100-yard freestyle races at Saturday’s county swim meet, finishing second by a fraction of a second in both events.

        It is the fourth year in the past five that Preiss, who is to swim at San Diego State, a Division 1 school, come next fall, has qualified for the state meet, which this year is to be held at Ithaca College over the Nov. 22-23 weekend.

  •     “I hadn’t known there were real people in Palm Springs,” I said to Mary after we’d seen the Hampton Theatre Company’s riveting production of “Other Desert Cities.”

        There’s still much to learn no matter how old you get.

  •     There was no joy in Bonac as the sun went down Monday afternoon given the fact that John Glenn’s boys soccer team had outscored the Bonackers 4-2 in a penalty kick shootout that followed 80 minutes of regulation and 30 minutes of overtime play.

  •     The East Hampton High School girls volleyball team swept Bayport-Blue Point in three during the regular season and it did so again here Saturday in a county Class B playoff semifinal, but this time it wasn’t so easy.

        The Phantoms put up a good fight, almost pulling out the pivotal second set before a service ace by Katie Brierley, East Hampton’s libero, and a tip at the net over a double block by Carley Seekamp capped a 27-25 win.

  • East Hampton made the playoffs, with a 3-5 record, retaining the number-eight spot in Division IV that it held going into the game.
  •     Neither Dana Cebulski nor Erik Engstrom, East Hampton High’s chief candidates to go to the state meet in cross-country, made it, though, according to their coaches, not for lack of trying.
