  •    The big news in East Hampton High School sports this past week was the girls volleyball team’s victory over a perennial rival, Westhampton Beach, and the boys cross-country team’s second-place finish in the 16-team Peconic Invitational meet at Red Creek Park.

  •    I stand naked before you, computerless. Humidity may have been at fault, or ants. I don’t know, but there I was on deadline with no “h,” no “j,” no “g.” It was very disconcerting, especially given the fact that I know my failings when it comes to dust and mold and mustiness in general, i.e., it probably had been because of my neglect that the computer didn’t work.

  •    With his mother, Denise, who had placed third in the inaugural year of this race in 1982, looking on, 23-year-old Ryan Siebert of Patchogue won Sunday’s Mighty Hamptons triathlon in Noyac in 2 hours, 3 minutes, and 59 seconds, besting 660 other finishers.
        Siebert’s splits were 22:43 in the 1.5K swim in Noyac Bay, 1:00:06 in the 23.8-mile bike leg, and 39:01 in the 10K run. His swim time was 12th best, his bike time second best, and his run time was the day’s fifth fastest.

  •    A battle royal took place on East Hampton High’s soccer pitch Monday afternoon, a nonleague clash between the defending county Class A and B champions, and in the end it was East Hampton, the class A champ, that came out the winner, by a score of 1-0, early in the second overtime period.
        The hotly and well-contested game prompted the referees afterward to agree that these two teams were, aside from Brentwood, perhaps the best in the county.

  •    Saturday was the time for all good Montauk Rugby Club men to come to the aid of their side, and, for the most part, they did.

  •     The Montauk Fire Department’s entry in the Montauk slow-pitch softball league, a team that had on it some of the best players in the for-now-defunct Amagansett league — Andy Tuthill, Joe Sullivan, Rob Nicoletti, and Tommy Thorsen among them — sailed through the season undefeated, at 20-0.
        Alan Iscoe, the champions’ manager, said the undefeated season was “unprecedented . . . unbelievable.”

  •    Not long ago, I mentioned some ways in which the freedom of which we often prate is constrained; it’s not only limited by the certainties of death and taxes, but by myths we adore, hatreds that seethe, failures of the heart, and such.

  •    Kent Farrington, 32, of Wellington, Fla., became the fifth rider in the Hampton Classic Horse Show’s 38-year history to win back-to-back Grand Prix championships on Sunday.

  •    The East Hampton High School boys cross-country team was out in force for the Great Bonac 5K Labor Day morning, and did itself proud, its members taking six out of the top eight places.

  •    If attitude is any indicator, the East Hampton High School football team ought to be in for a good season, despite the fact that the roster of 26 is relatively small and the fact that there are only seven varsity returnees.
