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.
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.”
