Flippy Notes: Bethpage pulls out the stunner

If you're a fan of Long Island high school gymnastics, this was the season for you. First, we had Commack winning the team championship over undefeated Kings Park in the closest margin of victory ever recorded on this fair isle. Then, we had yesterday, as No. 2 Bethpage announced its return to eminence, edging out undefeated Plainview for the title.

Let's kick if off with the full team scores -

Oceanside - 152.100

Hicksville - 146.825

Lawrence - 141.775
