Amongst a talented class, these individuals will take their passion to six different college programs, ranging from Division I to Division III.

They all have played lacrosse for many years together and have one more season to make Commack proud this spring as they will undoubtedly make 2010 a year to remember. The six individuals are Frankie Caridi, Adelphi University; Ashley Cook, Cortland; Kelsey Dlugos, Florida; Jessica Holscher, Oneonta; and Chelsea Intrabartola, Rutgers, and Melissa Warheit, Quinnipiac.|

Congratulations to Matthew Laks and Alexander Litrel, who recently
qualified for the Junior Olympics in Memphis, Tennessee (cadet division,
sabre) next month AND just made the US Fencing Association's
All-American Academic team
The Junior Olympics Qualifier was a day-long, grueling affair for Matthew and Alec as they attempted to qualify as cadets (under 17 yrs) AND as juniors (U-20) on 1/11/2010. They competed against the best sabres in the Long Island division, and qualified as cadets.
Matthew and Alexander Litrel made the first and second academic teams, respectively. In so many ways, these young men represent the true spirit of an IB student, and are great examples of the honorable and hardworking students that Commack encourages.

He received a 1st round buy for this amazing series and in the 2nd round threw a 235 to advance to the final match. Unfortunately, he came up a little short, but had a career day; and too his own admission bowled the best series of his life!!!||

tennis courts and then showed a big improvement.
We had to fight our way into post season play as we were tied with 2 teams. We had to have a playoff with Harborfields, undefeated in league 2 play. We beat them 5-2, then played and won the team tournament against Northport seeded ahead of us. Against the 1st seed Westhampton, undefeated, we were neck and neck until the very end when they pulled out the win.
Jenna Lazarus and Karen Schaub were divison champs in doubles for the second year in a row. They are All County, All Division and All League, Michelle Graziosi and Olivia Santoro are All Division and All League. Jessica Schmidt, Rosemary Kalonares and Kelly Hall are All League.

The Boys JV1 soccer team has a fantastic season. The team finished up
with a record of 13-2 and won the JV League 1 title.
The team scored a total of 56 goals and gave up only 8. The team's
leading scorer was Lee Manchio with 9 goals and the team's leading
assist man was Eric Haynes with 5. Yasin Ozdemir, Max Aronica, Jake
Amereno and Nelson Vetter were all pulled up to varsity for the playoffs
because of their efforts all season. Also, Coach Moran
was named League 1 Coach of the Year. He is proud of all the team
accomplished this year and said, "The team's success was due to the
consistent unselfish play and dedication to the team philosophy of Toast
to the Post."
