Former Golden Bear swimmer commits to Purdue

Former record-setting Golden Bear swimmer Grace Lux recently announced her verbal commitment to continue her academic and athletic career at Purdue University.

Now a rising senior at Fishers High School, located northeast of Indianapolis, Lux still holds multiple Shelbyville High School girls swim program records. She was a sectional champion in 2020 in the 100-yard breaststroke and finished 14th in the state championship meet.

As a freshman in 2019, Lux also qualified for the state meet in the 100 breaststroke where she finished ninth.

As a junior at Fishers, the state runner-up behind national powerhouse Carmel, Lux competed in three events at the state meet.

She placed seventh in the 100 breaststroke and 15th in the 200 individual medley, an event she was crowned Hoosier Heritage Conference champion in 2020, and was part of Fishers’ seventh-place finishing 200 medley relay team.

Lux is the daughter of Matt and Christina Lux.
