Bees were buzzing in Southampton Town Hall last week.

“The famous Killer Bees have arrived,” Supervisor Jay Schneiderman said, smiling, prior to the April 9 town board meeting. “I’m sure you’ve heard of them.”

The Bridgehampton boys basketball team finished the season 15-10 overall and 9-5 in League VII, beating rival Greenport — a Class C state semifinalist — in the Suffolk County Class C championship after losing to the Porters twice during the regular season. The Killer Bees also won the Class D Suffolk and Long Island championships, and Class D Southeast sub-regional.

Head coach Ron White, athletic director Mike DeRosa, and varsity cheerleading coach Jen Maldonado were with the members of the team and the cheerleading squad as a proclamation was presented.

“They continued the extraordinary reputation of the Bridgehampton Killer Bees,” Schneiderman said. “Great playing. It’s pretty exceptional.”
