2010 LMU Swimming Alumnae Meet

2010 LMU Swimming Alumnae Meet

Joanne Reierson enters her 14th season at LMU in 2017-18, working with the distance freestylers and breaststroke specialists.

Reierson grew up in Indianapolis, Ind., and started swimming breaststroke and IM in high school. Much to her dismay, her coach entered her in the 500 as a junior, and so began her distance freestyle specialty.

Reierson swam at Dartmouth College, where she majored in economics and math, and was captain her senior year. After graduating in 1993, she moved to New York City, where she joined the Asphalt Green Masters team and met her husband, Lars. They lived in Singapore for three years before moving to L.A. in 1998 and joining the SCAQ Masters. There, Reierson met LMU coaches Adair and Evans.

Reierson has competed at the Masters short course National Championships off and on for the last 15 years. Her national titles include the 50 breaststroke in 1994 and the 1000 freestyle in 2002 and 2004.

The Reiersons have two sons, Nils, who was born in September of 2005, and Reese, who was born in June of 2008.
