Having returned from a singular spring training trip to Orlando, Fla., where it had won all eight of its scrimmages, the East Hampton High School softball team flirted with disaster in a crossover game here on April 18 with Eastport-South Manor, but Kathryn Hess, the senior catcher and cleanup hitter, saved the day.
As a result of Hess’s two-out single to right field in the bottom of the seventh inning, a hit that scored Casey Waleko from second base, the Bonackers went home happy on the long end of a 4-3 score.
The East Hampton Coaches Association’s coffers benefited to the tune of $10,000 from a golf outing Saturday at the South Fork Country Club in Amagansett.
Rain had been forecast, but it was, wonderful to tell, a sunny day, and spirits were bright.
“The last time here [two years ago], I hit a horse,” Lou Reale, East Hampton High’s softball coach, said before the golf cart brigade of foursomes set out.
