On Wednesday, July 12, Myah Selland was honored at the Gatorade Player of the Year Awards ceremony for her work with a new non-profit organization, Her Turn, which she co-founded with SDSU teammate, Tori Nelson. While at the awards ceremony, the two ladies proudly accepted the 2023 Community Grant Award of $25,000 to help continue the important work they have been doing with Her Turn in Brookings and the surrounding area.

According to a press release about the recent honor, “Her Turn is a non-profit organization designed to create more equitable sporting opportunities for girls and young women in Brookings. Her Turn provides scholarships for recipients to attend an overnight, SDSU sports camp at no cost, in addition to equipment and transportation.” 

While in Los Angeles for the Gatorade Awards ceremony, Selland and Nelson were invited to attend the ESPY Awards, which are the annual awards given to athletes for their work and character on and off the court/field. The two SDSU collegiate women’s basketball standouts walked the red carpet for the ESPYs with some of the greatest athletes in the world.

Selland, a Letcher native and Sanborn Central graduate, had an outstanding college career, earning Summit League Player of the Year twice and leading her team to the 2022 Women’s National Invitation Tournament (WNIT) Championship, where she earned WNIT Most Valuable Player honors. She is now heading overseas to continue her basketball career with BAXI Ferrol, a professional team in Spain for the 2023-24 season.
