NEWBERG, Ore. - Pacific Lutheran University men's track & field student-athletes Carson Ketter and Erik Swartout laced up the spikes one final time before the 2018 NCAA Division III Championships, coming away with three event wins on Thursday afternoon at the George Fox Final Qualifier Meet.
Ketter won the 100-meter dash in 10.85 seconds before claiming another win in the 200-meter dash, making a half loop around the oval in 21.76. Swartout claimed the victory in the javelin by the thinnest of margins, uncorking a throw of 173 feet, 0 inches, edging out runner-up Keaton Beckmann of Willamette University by just one inch.
