Buddy Gengler stood at the podium inside the dimly lit auditorium at Shoreham-Wading River High School, the rain having forced the day’s festivities indoors. As he gazed out into the audience, he saw a crowd that had gathered to honor him along with two other former baseball players, Matt Millheiser (2001) and Bryan Sabatella (’02). On this day, their jerseys were to be formally retired, their legacy forever etched into SWR lore. But Gengler knew the day would be about more than his past accomplishments on the diamond.

The matchup was an intriguing one: Hampton Bays’ Alexis Fotopoulos and Shoreham-Wading River’s Courtney Clasen.
The two central figures in the Town of Brookhaven Summer League girls basketball small schools final had never played against each other before. They both came up big at different times, and in their own ways, in Wednesday evening’s showdown at Eastport/South Manor High School.
In the end, it was Clasen, the senior, and her teammates who ended up with the prize, though not before blowing a 16-point lead and enduring a scare from Fotopoulos and her friends in purple.
