  • The Buckskill Winter Club, as it has in the past few years, will play host to a Katy’s Courage fund-raiser on Sunday, Feb. 10, with proceeds to go to the foundation created by Jim and Brigid Collins Stewart in memory of their daughter.
  • The Harlem MagicMasters are to play an East Hampton School District faculty basketball “Dream Team” at the high school’s gym Saturday evening to raise money for the class of 2020.

  • With a convincing win over Sayville-Bayport Monday, and with a similarly stellar victory over Hauppauge, the defending league champion, last Thursday, it appeared likely that the East Hampton High School boys swimming team would wind up as a league titlist for the first time since the program began here under Jeff Thompson in 2010.
  • Last week was the best of times and the worst of times for the Killer Bees of Bridgehampton, who, after an exciting win over Pierson at home, went on to lose, 65-62, at Shelter Island, a fellow Class D school.

  • Angelika Cruz was honored recently as the Old Montauk Athletic Club’s female athlete of the year for her top-notch triathlon finishes in 2018, an honor all the more notable for the fact that teaching, coaching, and parenting leave little time to train.
