“I knew Andy Neidnig well,” John Conner said during the awards ceremony following the inaugural 5-kilometer Andy’s Run in Sag Harbor Saturday morning. “I ran with him for 30 years or so. Indubitably, he was a world-class runner.”
“He ran in masters world championships in Rome; in Melbourne, Australia; Japan; Turku, Finland; Puerto Rico; in Durban, South Africa. . . . And, whenever he could, he ran against the best.”
The Harborfields High School girls swimming team proved to be too powerful for East Hampton’s in Monday’s league opener at the Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter, though there was plenty of good news for the young Bonackers, who were led by Marina Preiss, one of the state’s best swimmers.
On Monday, Preiss won the 50-yard freestyle, in 24.92 seconds, won the 100 free, in 54.02, and anchored the winning 400 free relay in 53.44.
