Ackerman Triples Her Fun as Lutes Beat 'Cats

Kina Ackerman won three events on Friday night at the PLU pool as Pacific Lutheran defeated visiting Linfield, 134-71, in a Northwest Conference swimming dual.

Ackerman won the 1000 freestyle in 11:30.33, the 200 individual medley in 2:20.72, and the 500 freestyle in 5:35.70.

Toni Castillo had a pair of event victories, taking the 50 freestyle in 25.60 and the 100 freestyle in 55.04.

PLU also won both relays, taking the 400 medley in 4:12.68 and the 400 freestyle in 3:49.80. The medley relay time was faster than the time that the Lutes swam at last season's conference meet.

"We had a solid meet with some great early season swims, including a lot of PRs,  especially from the freshmen," head coach Matt Sellman said. "(The swimmers) are seeing the results of tremendously improved training and confidence."
