Isaac Roberts and Meg Sessions, are members of the Luther College cross country teams.

The Norse men are led by head coach Steve Pasche who begins his 16th year. During his tenure, the Norse have made five trips to the NCAA Division III National Championships and have been crowned conference champions five times.

The Luther women led by head coach Yarrow Pasche who begins her third year as head coach. Pasche was promoted to head coach on March 9, 2018 after serving as associate head coach for 13 years. 

During her tenure, Pasche has helped lead the Norse to three Iowa Conference championships and seven appearances at the NCAA III National Championships. Three times she was named the Conference Coach of the Year and twice Central Region Coach of the Year.

On Aug. 10, the Presidents Council of the American Rivers Conference passed a resolution to postpone football, women’s and men’s soccer, and volleyball to spring 2021.

It was also announced that fall competition in women’s and men’s cross country, women’s golf, and women’s tennis would take place but only against conference opponents.

As a result of this decision, the A-R-C is the only Division III conference in the nation running cross-country this fall. 

The 2020 conference schedule is much different, with three sets of triangular meets taking place every Saturday, since Saturday, Sept. 12. The season will be wrapped up with the conference championships Nov. 7, hosted by Central College. 

Roberts is the son of Kate Elliott and Kevin Roberts of Decorah.

Sessions is the daughter of Erik Sessions and Sara Peterson of Decorah.
