A Perry High School graduate was recently named to play on this year’s USA D-3 Women’s Basketball Team.

Clair Marburger is a current Luther College student-athlete and has made it onto the roster of several other college basketball players to play in the 2018 Brazil Tour. The teams are made up of invited NCAA Division III basketball players from throughout the United States. Team members have been recognized at the national, regional and conference levels.

The USA D-3 Men’s & Women’s Basketball Teams will begin the tour in Orlando, Florida on July 16 and will continue through July 25 traveling, practicing, and competing throughout Jundiai, Sao Paulo.

Director of USA Sports Tours & Events Ron Smith says this is an outstanding group of basketball players.

“We feel that we have some of the best of the best representing almost every region in the country,” Smith said. “These players have been high achievers both on the court and in the classroom. They represent everything good that the NCAA Division III institutions have to offer.”
