Victoria High School graduate and future Fort Hays State University women's basketball player Kristin Huser was part of the championship team at the United World Games in Klagenfurt, Austria last weekend.

Huser, along with future FHSU Tiger Morgan Hood, Bucklin, were members of a team sponsored by USA Athletes International coached by Hartford's Mike Watkins. The team was comprised of select athletes from Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma and Utah.

The team finished 3-1 in pool play, then captured back-to-back victories in bracket play for the tournament championship. In addition to basketball, the team toured Venice, Italy and Munich, Germany, and is scheduled to return to the states Wednesday.
