  • It was the day before I, perhaps the only “company man” left in America, was to be interviewed, and I was trying to think of clever things to say.
  • Asked after Saturday’s home win over Westhampton Beach, in which the boys knocked down nine 3-pointers, if they weren’t leading the county in 3s, Dan White, the coach, said the team was probably the county’s worst rebounding team.
  • A meeting of parents in the Sag Harbor, Southampton, East Hampton, and Bridgehampton School Districts, including Ross School parents, was to have been held at Pierson High in Sag Harbor Wednesday night to discuss the future of football here.
  • It’s a rarity, or so it has been of late, that the Ross School can boast of a league champion, much less an undefeated one, but it happened recently as its middle school girls volleyball team completed a 10-0 season.
  • Both teams competed against the best of the Northeast; Ryan Fowkes ran a personal-best 4:27 mile at Ocean Breeze.
  • Sunday’s weather was pretty awful, but Saturday was a good day for skating at the Buckskill Winter Club, which, its manager, Cory Lillie, said has been doing well since opening around Thanksgiving.
  • It would be nice to go some place warm, I guess, for the winter months, but the warmer the place, it seems, the more off-putting the political climate. Maybe somebody will invent something you can spray on, to protect you from nativist spleen.
  • East Hampton was urged on enthusiastically that night by the school’s band and its dance team, which performed a tightly choreographed number at halftime.
  • As expected (though it was not a lead-pipe cinch), the East Hampton High School boys swimming team won at West Islip on Jan. 16 to cap an unprecedented undefeated league-championship season at 7-0 (9-0). It was the first such for boys swimming since the program began here under Jeff Thompson in 2010.
