Marina Preiss led the way for the East Hampton High School girls swimming team at the league meet in Hauppauge Friday, winning the 50 and 100 freestyle races and anchoring the winning 200 freestyle relay team.
The latter race, said East Hampton’s coach, John McGeehan, “was the most exciting one of the day. When Marina left the blocks she was almost a full body length behind the Sayville and Harborfields girls, and she out-touched them at the end.”
That some people find the evidence of tradesmen’s lives in the blue-collar section of town offensive is puzzling.
We’ll never make Springs Sagaponack no matter how hard we try, nor should we want to. Uniformity, whether in the form of grandiose mansions or too tidy half-acre lots, seems to me to be the real offense.
Springs used to be celebrated for its diversity (for its admixture of farmers and clammers and artists). Now apparently it is not, conformity being ever on the march.
