Flag Football Team Wins Inaugural Game!

Commack Athletics made history on Monday. And it won in convincing fashion to boot.
 
 In the first-ever varsity flag football game in school history, the Cougars defeated visiting Bay Shore 22-0 on Monday afternoon.
 
Commack converted on a pair of fourth downs and scored a touchdown on the first drive in program history en route to the shutout victory.
 
 The county began sponsoring flag football as a varsity sport a year ago, and Commack joined in this season.
 
 “We have really smart girls and really athletic girls,” said head coach Augie Contressa, a former Stony Brook football standout. “They showed it today.”
