Bastyr Announces New Football Team and Mascot

Bastyr University is pleased to introduce Kale, the University's first official mascot, which will make its public debut this fall during the first game of the University's newly-formed co-ed football team.

During the official announcement, Bastyr University President Daniel K. Church, PhD said Kale represents the vitality and vigor of the Bastyr University spirit. A survey collected student opinions, with Kale narrowly beating out the Bastyr Turtles for selection as the first official mascot.  

Football league assignments, tryouts, practice facilities and the hiring of an athletic director are still in the planning stages. With its intention to play in a west coast league, the University hopes to fill the team with students from its Washington and California campuses. Students interested in trying out are encouraged to follow the announcements forum in MyBU for updates.
