Washburn Teams Make Child Honorary Member

KSAL StaffOctober 3, 2014

Volleyball and basketball players at Washburn University can now call a 7-year-old girl their teammate.

Karis Selk is now an honorary member of Washburn University’s volleyball and women’s basketball teams. She’s also in her first year of remission from pediatric brain cancer.

Selk signed her name in pink pen during a letter-of-intent signing ceremony on Thursday, while the school’s head volleyball coach and head women’s basketball coach watched. She will get her own locker for each team and a jersey with a number of her choosing from both. Selk says she wants her number to be seven, because she’s 7 years old.

Selk also will be able to sit on the bench with the teams at games.
