About

This spring, PLU Athletics is back! It’s an athletics season like NO OTHER at PLU — and we need YOU to COME TOGETHER like never before with 441 other Lutes on behalf of 442 student-athletes!

Your gift to your favorite team or the Lute Club General Fund will make the MOST EXCITING four months in the history of PLU Athletics possible: 17 varsity teams, 442 student athletes, more than 100 competitions, just 118 days. 

Because of increased costs related to COVID-19, our student-athletes and teams need your support to “GO LUTES” this season. In fact, COVID has led to an additional $227 in costs per student-athlete. This means EVERY Lute’s gift is important. 

What’s this season going to take? YOU!
