There is no doubt about the excitement for the East Hampton High School boys soccer team, which captured the Long Island championship on Sunday. With the players heading to the state final four this weekend in Middletown, N.Y., the high school is organzing a bus for spectators, and the community has been invited to go along for the ride.

The bus will leave East Hampton High School on Saturday at 4 a.m., and return when the game is over. Joe Vasille-Cozzo, East Hampton's atheletic director, said there were 51 seats available at $35 per person. The ride to Middletown is about three and a half hours.  

In order to sign-up, community members must call Patricia Hand in the atletic office to reserve a seat by Wednesday at noon. Checks can be made payable to the East Hampton Student Association. Permission slips for students are also available from Ms. Hand.

If the boys win against Jamesville-DeWitt on Saturday, they will play in the final game on Sunday. The school will try to arrange for a spectator bus for that game, too.
