  •     On a beautiful windy fall day, the East Hampton High School boys soccer team took Shoreham-Wading River to school here by a score of 4-0.
        Saturday’s was as good a game as the team has played this season — smooth sailing for the entire 80 minutes, leaving only superlatives in its wake.

  •     John McGeehan had promised the meet between the East Hampton and Harborfields High School girls swimming teams last week would be a barn burner, and it was.
        So, as a matter of fact, had been the last two meets between these teams, though this time instead of the Tornadoes winning, the Bonackers did.

  •     Kathy McGeehan, who coaches East Hampton High School’s girls volleyball team, had circled Oct. 12 on her calendar — the date of a return match with one of Bonac’s chief rivals, Westhampton Beach.

  •     Well, the East Hampton High School football team lost the game, and by a lopsided score, but its opening drive at Rocky Point Friday night was a thing of beauty.
        Following the kickoff into Bonac’s end zone, Dan Barros was hit behind the line, but then, on second-and-12, Cortland Heneveld, the sophomore quarterback, drove up the middle for 5 yards, and, on third down, Heneveld hit Sergio Betancur with a pass for a first down at the 31.

  • East Hampton High School’s golf coach, Claude Beudert, wasn’t sure when the fall began that his squad would repeat as the League VIII champion.
  •     “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” I said to Mary the other morning. “Nay, nay, thou art more lovely, e’en more pissed off at me. . . .”
        And with reason.

  •     A beautiful day, some of the best trails out here, and the recent untimely death of Andrew Walsh, a 45-year-old Irish-born outdoorsman and gifted landscape designer known to many of them, brought some 70 mountain-bikers and runners to the Edward V. Ecker Preserve in Montauk Sunday to contest, following silent moments of remembrance, the Serpent’s Back Duathlon overseen by Mike Bahel, the 12-mile mountain-bike leg bracketed by two-and-a-half-mile trail runs.

  •     East Hampton High’s girls swimming and boys soccer teams enjoyed big wins this past week. The swimmers swamped Huntington in a meet at the Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter, evening its record at 1-1, and the soccer team, playing away, bested Elwood-John Glenn 3-1 to gain a share of the league lead.

  •     The Ross School’s Tennis Academy, the first of its kind on the East Coast inasmuch as its students play and study at a school — their 12-hour day being pretty much evenly divided between sport and studies — has six members, all boys between the ages of 11 and 15, in its first class.

  •     The East Hampton Police Athletic League football program, now in its fourth year, will hold a fund-raiser tomorrow at the Beachhouse restaurant on Route 27 from 6 to 9 p.m.
        There will be food, drinks, a D.J., raffles, and a silent auction of more than 100 donated items.
        Money raised will go toward new equipment, said Don Reese, who heads the program and coaches its 11-year-old traveling team, which is ranked among the Island’s top 20.
