The Loras College men's swimming team dropped their road dual to host Luther College on Saturday, 136-84.

Andy Pape and Ricky Lukacs each won events to lead the Duhawks to their 84 points. Pape won the 200 Yard Freestyle and 200 Yard Backstroke. Lukacs out-touched Dustin Ziminski by :00.03 seconds to win the 100 Freestyle. Lukacs was just :00.20 behind the winner in the 50 Freestyle as well. The 400 Freestyle Relay team of Pape, Lukacs, Joe Gracyalny and Stephen Ball were roughly three seconds off the pace in the final event of the day.

Additional solid swims came from Stephen Ball in the 1000 Freestyle, Tommy Castle in the 200 Yard Butterfly, and Ryan Momberger in the 200 Yard Breaststroke - who were all runners-up in those events.

Loras will be in Chicago this Saturday for the University of Chicago Invitational and close the home portion of the schedule on January 22 for Senior Day against Beloit College.
