Thirty one years. 600 games. 479 wins. One heck of a career for West Islip coach Scott Craig, who coached his final game on Friday, a loss to Connetquot in the Suffolk County playoffs.
“On the high school circuit, West Islip is recognized, nationally, as a premier program,” Craig told Newsday. “Obviously, it’s been a few years since we’ve gotten back to the pinnacle (the Lions’ last Long Island and state titles came in 2012), but I think most people know that Long Island lacrosse — especially the A division — is the cream of the crop.”
Craig was inducted to the Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame in 2014.
