17-year-old high school athlete died suddenly and unexpectedly last week.
An obituary for Max Sorenson of Gillette, Wyoming, said he died Dec. 26 “due to complications from injuries sustained playing basketball.”
Paul Wallem, the Campbell County coroner, reported the cause of death as peritonitis, an infection of the tissue that lines the abdomen, according to a report Friday in the Gillette News Record.
The news outlet reported Sorenson, a junior at Thunder Basin High School, suffered an injury during a Dec. 17 game against Rock Springs, but it did not specify the nature of the injury.
The Cowboy State Daily reported the young man “suffered a medical event at his home … and was pronounced deceased at Campbell Memorial Hospital.”
