  • Richie Daunt, who has won two matches thus far in the Road to the Garden tournament (what used to be known as the Golden Gloves), is to fight tomorrow night in the Bronx. Daunt’s 152-pound novice quarterfinal-round opponent will be Patrick Gough. They are to meet at International Boxing, 1630 Weirfield Street, the Bronx, as part of a fight card that is scheduled to begin at 7:45.
  • Ulf Nilsson, the Swedish Paralympics’ sled hockey team’s 53-year-old goalie, said, when questioned by a Times sportswriter, Ben Shpigel, that “the best would be to combine the speed I had when I was young and the knowledge I have now . . . that’s the problem with everything.”
  • The Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter youth swim team, the Hurricanes, placed third among 39 entries — and in runner-up positions in the separate boys and girls divisions — in the state Y meet in Buffalo this past weekend, a showing that convinced the coach, Tom Cohill, that this was the most balanced team he’s ever taken to the states.
  • Vinny Alversa, East Hampton High’s varsity baseball coach, said Monday he wished his team were heading south on Tuesday for the Tampa Bay Spring Training complex in St. Petersburg, given the uncertain weather here, but he could be thankful at the same time that the Bonackers got in a scrimmage over the weekend in Moriches — a scrimmage with Hampton Bays that went very well.
  • Golden gloves are no longer the prize for winning what used to be The New York Daily News’s boxing tournament, though Richie Daunt, who won his second-round match Friday, will take whatever U.S.A. Boxing wants to give him. The organization oversees the tourney now, under the “The Road to the Garden” banner.
  • “It’s going to be so good this year,” Kathy Amicucci, coach of East Hampton High’s softball team, said at Friday’s indoor practice session when asked if the playoffs were in the offing.
  • Not long ago, during an idyll in Palm Desert, Calif., I was doing the crossword puzzle and the first clue I came across was: “ ‘Serial’ podcast host Sarah.”
  • Spring sprang this past week sportswise, and for the most part the teams — namely baseball, softball, boys tennis, boys and girls lacrosse, and boys and girls track — have been practicing outside, though a foot of wet snow was predicted for Tuesday.
  • There are ways to beat a 2-3 zone, though the Bridgehampton High School boys basketball team wasn’t very good at employing them in the state Class D regional final played at Center Moriches High School Friday evening.
  • Richie Daunt’s boxing record, thanks to a “Golden Gloves” win in Yonkers on March 1, is all even at 4-4. He hopes to make it 5-4 tomorrow night, in another 152-pound novice bout in Flushing.
