  • The publicists for the Shelter Island 10K, which is to be contested Saturday afternoon, said in an email earlier this week that “we are looking at another great field of athletes from the United States, Kenya, and Ethiopia.”
  • Tim Steiskal, the winner of Saturday’s Robert J. Aaron memorial Olympic-distance triathlon in Montauk, said he began to worry when, as he was running uphill “from the bottom of a canyon” on the run, he saw the defending champion, Matthew Connelly, on his way down.
  • This week has been a homecoming for Duane Bock, a Bonacker born and bred, who since graduating from East Hampton High in 1985 has made his way in the world of professional golf, first as a high-level player and then, for the past 13 years, as a caddie on the P.G.A. tour.
  • East Hampton High School’s Hall of Fame committee has named three athletes, Zach Brenneman (2007), Justin Winter (1982), and Michael Sarlo (1988), as well as the school’s longtime trainer, Randi Cherill, as an honorary member, to its class of 2018.
  • My analogy may be a little off, but I think the way into the Art Barge on the Napeague stretch resembles a pound trap, a long track through wetlands leading to the cod end, from which there is no escape.
  • Claude Beudert, whose good 31-year walk, as it were, with East Hampton High School’s golf team was decidedly not spoiled — during his tenure his teams went a collective 285-68, won 17 league championships, 14 of them between 2001 and 2015, and won county and Long Island championships in 2011 — is now utterly retired.

  • East Hampton High’s boys tennis team, which shared the league championship with Westhampton Beach, made it to the semifinals of the county team tournament this past week, defeating Sachem, the 12th seed, and Half Hollow Hills West, the fourth, before being “smoked,” in its coach Kevin McConville’s words, by top-seeded Half Hollow Hills East.
  • Neal Feinberg, who’s leasing the four Har-Tru tennis courts on the Napeague stretch that Doug De Groot owns, said at 27Tennis the other day that he got into the real estate business “at the worst time in the history of humanity.”
