  • F.C. Tuxpan, Antonio Chavez’s team, had not until Monday night won a 7-on-7 men’s soccer championship in 21 seasons, which is to say since the fall of 2007.
  • Soon after the midterms I considered ordering a bumper sticker that would read: “Don’t Blame Me — I’m From East Hampton.”
  • Anthony Piscitello’s wrestlers, several of them new to the sport, were thrown into the fire at East Hampton’s Frank (Sprig) Gardner invitational tournament Saturday, and while the team finished last, the third-year coach said his charges (he’s got 16 on the squad) “did pretty well.”
  • Sas Peters of Amagansett, who has extended the competitive career of Ultimate Disc players many years by founding three divisions for men and women — grand masters (over-40), great grand masters (over-50), and legends (over-60) — won a silver medal recently, as a member of Surly, a great grand masters team, in the national Ultimate championships in Sarasota, Fla.
  • A squad of masters swimmers from the Y.M.C.A. East Hampton RECenter registered a number of impressive finishes at the Dr. Bill Ross Memorial Masters (18-and-over) meet at the Nassau County Aquatic Center last month.
  • Mary Anne Jules, the former athletic director who is to be inducted into the Bridgehampton School’s Hall of Fame tomorrow evening, said recently from her home in Water Mill that she felt blessed to have been able to spend virtually her entire 32-year teaching, coaching, and administrative career there.
  • Dan White, who coaches East Hampton High School’s boys basketball team, is cautiously optimistic, as they say, on the verge of his third season here.
  • To look at him, you would not think he’d be so strong, but Richy Rangel, a quiet-spoken East Hampton High School senior who wants to become a computer engineer, is, as Lisa Farbar, the high school’s strength and conditioning coach, says, “extraordinary.”
  • There were no men’s rugby games here this fall, for the first time in a very long time, though Kevin Bunce, who’s been overseeing Section XI Warriors youth sides that have on them players from East Islip, Babylon, Mount Sinai, Shoreham, and the North Fork, as well as from Sag Harbor and East Hampton, is pretty sure that men’s rugby — though probably no longer strictly under the Montauk Rugby Club’s aegis — will live again in the form of a countywide powerhouse.
  • We’ve returned from a Thanksgiving dinner on the Eastern Shore that would have made even Ina Garten envious. And the house, whose core dates to 1876 or so, was beautiful, the most beautiful one I’ve ever been in.
