The athletic West family of East Hampton continues to make news: Ashley West, a sophomore at Susquehanna University, last weekend became a collegiate all-American, a rarity among Bonac athletes, and her younger brother, Nicholas, an East Hampton High School junior and all-state soccer player, raised $4,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project by completing 1,000 “burpees,” also known as squat thrusts, in an hour, 56 minutes, and 7 seconds.
The East Hampton High School baseball and girls lacrosse teams scrimmaged Saturday — the baseball team here with Southampton, and the girls at Longwood. Softball was to have scrimmaged too, but the grounds crew told the coach, to his dismay, that the field was unplayable.
“We’ve got to get out one of these days,” groused Lou Reale during a practice session in the gym. “These girls barely know where to throw the ball,” he said with a smile.
