The East Hampton High School boys basketball team, which has in the past two years often suffered disappointing defeats in the waning minutes of games, prevailed 60-58 in overtime at Bayport-Blue Point last Thursday, a night in which Bayport-Blue Point’s girls defeated their Bonac counterparts here 47-35.
East Hampton’s girls had their moments, but they came in the first quarter, and, as time wore on, the fact that Kaelyn Ward, the team’s star point guard, got into early foul trouble, was to hurt.
Tomorrow, Tom Cohill, the aquatics director of the Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter, is to take 16 members of the Y’s youth swim team, the Hurricanes, to a meet at the University of Maryland that is expected to attract Y teams from Massachusetts to South Carolina.
Because it is an Olympic year, with Olympic trial hopefuls among the older teenagers, the Winterfest invitational, as it is known, will be, said Cohill, and one of his assistants, Craig Brierley, “a fast meet.”
