The big news as far as East Hampton High School sports was concerned last week lay in the fact that the boys tennis team defeated the league-champion Ross School 4-3 here on May 1.
Ross and Westhampton Beach finished with 10-2 records, though Ross defeated the Hurricanes both times they played. It was the fourth straight year that the private school has won the league championship.
Well, it’s official: Spring has arrived. For Sebastian Gorgone, it was heralded by the arrival at Gerard Drive of squid-chasing bluefish; for me it announced itself in the form of a deer tick latched onto my upper left shoulder.
A day later, Peter Siefken finished the job that I’d somewhat botched, though I did remember to take two antibiotic pills, as he had recommended, soon after making the discovery. The potent pills made me feel wretched, though anything’s better than having Lyme disease, which messes with your brain.
