Four Decorah High School graduates and one South Winneshiek High School graduate are members of this year's Luther College swimming and diving teams.
2018 South Winneshiek graduate Madi Ondrashek is a member of the women's swimming and diving team. 2020 Decorah graduate Maddie Putnam is one of two divers on the women's swimming and diving team.

Members of the Luther College men's swimming and diving team are Christian Johnson, Lars Marquardt and Sawyer Vanden Brink, all 2019 graduates of Decorah HS. Johnson and Marquardt are returning letter winners. Vanden Brink has joined the Luther swim team after transferring from the University of Iowa.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Norse will only be competing against teams in the American Rivers Conference, except for the season ending Liberal Arts Championships that will take place in February at three sites, including Luther.

Luther opened its season over the weekend at Nebraska Wesleyan University, where the women's team won and the men's team lost.   On Saturday, November 7th, Luther will travel to Coe College for a dual meet.  The complete Luther swim team schedule can be found at
