  •     The East Hampton High School boys and girls track teams lost to their Amityville peers this past week, though there were good things to say even though the margins of victory were considerable.
        “We were holding our own until the scores from the throwers and jumpers came in,” said the girls’ coach, Diane O’Donnell. “Their girl who won the shot-put just stood there and tossed it 34 feet.”

  •     Ed Bahns, whose baseball team was 5-6 as of Tuesday morning, having dropped all three games in a series with Mount Sinai, by scores of 9-1, 11-1, and 4-1, professed some concern Friday when asked about the team’s chances of making the playoffs.

  •    The other night Mary realized she was missing the news.  “That’s good news,” I said, knowing that for her but to think is to be full of sorrow.
        (Keats said that by the way, not me, but I like it.)

  •     When Zivile Ngo first came here from Lithuania eight summers ago to work at the Golden Pear, she was, the competitive bodybuilder said during a recent conversation at The Star, a shy, skinny kid.

  •     The East Hampton High School baseball team swept a three-game series with Amityville last week, improving its record to 5-3 before losing 9-1 at Mount Sinai on Monday.
        As of Tuesday, the Bonackers were tied with Mount Sinai for third place in League VII, behind 9-0 Bayport-Blue Point and 6-3 Shoreham-Wading River.

  •    Lou Reale, who coaches East Hampton High School’s softball team, said Tuesday morning that the past week’s spring training trip to Orlando, Fla., had indeed been memorable.

  •    The East Hampton High School girls lacrosse team, which was in 10th place among Division II’s 21 power-rated teams as of Tuesday, lost 15-13 at Kings Park Friday after having earlier in the month defeated Bayport-Blue Point 10-9 and, in a nonleaguer, Lindenhurst 11-8.

  •    I was trying to persuade Mary to look at the big picture during a recent late-afternoon ritual at the Campbell Apartment in Grand Central, but she, whose compassion can be worrisome, demurred.
        “Of course it’s not so hard for me,” I said, “because I don’t care as much as you do.”
        “I wish I could be like that,” she said.

  •    On the eve of his team’s departure for 10 days of scrimmages and practice sessions at Disney World’s sports complex in Orlando, Lou Reale, who coaches East Hampton High’s softball team, said things were looking pretty good given the young team’s early season wins over Shoreham-Wading River, Rocky Point, and Miller Place, and a close loss to Sayville, the top-ranked Class A school and one of the best teams over all in the county.

  •     On the eve of a three-game series with Amityville, the East Hampton High School baseball team had played single games with all of its league opponents, winning two games and losing three.
        But for a tendency to blow leads, a tendency that Bonac’s coaches, Ed Bahns and Will Collins, hope to correct, “we could be 5-0 at this point rather than 2-3,” Collins said following the spring break’s first practice session.
