Augustana College will name its new swimming and diving facility after an alumna who pioneered women’s athletics at the college. 

Anne Greve Lund became the first director of women’s athletics at Augustana in 1924 while she was still a student. 

The Anne Greve Lund Natatorium will include the competition pool and viewing stands, team rooms and offices, and locker rooms. It also will include a Swim Performance Lab featuring a SwimEx pool system for sports physical therapy, training, and swimming stroke analysis. 

The natatorium will be located inside the Peter J. Lindberg, M.D., Center for Health and Human Performance. Construction is projected to finish next spring.
