The East Hampton High School boys track team improved to 1-2 Monday with an 89-38 win here over Wyandanch, whose team numbered around a dozen vis-a-vis East Hampton’s 40 or so, albeit many of them freshmen.

The Bonackers, led by Matt Maya, who won three events — the 110-meter high hurdles, the long jump, and the high jump — and by Ryan Fowkes, who won the 800 and was an obliging runner-up in the 1,600, swept the high hurdles, placed first and second in the 1,600, and placed first and second in the 400 intermediate hurdles.

The boys also placed first and second in the shot-put and discus, placed second in the 100, placed second and third in the 400, placed first and third in the 800, placed second in the 200, placed first and third in the 3,200 and in the long and triple jumps, and won the 4-by-400 relay.

Besides Maya and Fowkes, other winners singled out by the team’s coach, Ben Turnbull, in a Tuesday morning email were Evan Masi, who won the 1,600, Colin Harrison, who won the discus, Devon Merrit, who won the triple jump, and Matthew DiSunno, who won the shot-put.
