Diving and only four first place finishes in the swimming events by the Norse proved to be the difference as Luther was defeated by Loras 116-107 today in Dubuque. The loss snapped a streak of 21 consecutive Iowa Conference dual meet victories dating back to Jan. 10, 2004.
The Norse, who do not have a diver, saw 18 points produced by the Duhawks John Maevski that secured the victory.
The Norse took the top two places in both the 50 freestyle and 200 backstroke, and finished 1-2-3 in the 200 butterfly.
The loss gives Luther an Iowa Conference record of 1-1, 1-4 overall.
Luther will host its own invitational one week from today, Saturday, Jan. 11. The diving competition will begin at 10 a.m., followed by the swimming competition that begins at noon.
