Some players are lifted onto the shoulders of their teammates when they make their final exit. In Courtney Clasen’s case, she was rolled out of the Shoreham-Wading River High School gym on a chair supported by wheels.

It’s safe to say that Clasen’s final minutes as a Shoreham basketball player did not go as she might have envisioned. After making a layup and rolling her right ankle on the landing, Clasen spent the last 2 minutes 13 seconds of her high school career sitting on the bench, with her right leg spread out across a chair and an ice pack on her ailing ankle. The senior forward watched her teammates make a valiant comeback attempt in her absence, only to fall short, 48-45, to fifth-seeded Comsewogue in a Suffolk County Class A Tournament quarterfinal on Wednesday night.
