Pickup game

The action at Kansas University’s Allen Fieldhouse doesn’t cease with the game-ending buzzer. After the screaming fans have cleared out, a crew is dispatched to clean up the considerable amount of garbage left in the stands. University clubs sign up for cleaning duty throughout the year to raise money for their clubs and for professional development training for club members.

Equipped with her iPod and a broom, Wichita senior Katlin Batchellor moves through the rows of seating in her assigned section. The fieldhouse cleanup can stretch into the early morning hours. “It’s a chore, but we all split up, and we all take sections,” Batchellor said.
