Hamilton College's Cat Berry '19 and Mary Lundin '19 wrapped up their seasons in Friday's preliminary heats of the 2019 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships held at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Boston, Mass.

Berry competed in both the 200-meter and the 400-meter dash. She finished 12th out of 20 athletes in the 400 meters with a time of 57.82 seconds and placed 20th in the 200 meters in 25.83 seconds. Berry missed the final's eight-runner field in the 400 by just 0.39 seconds.

Berry was making her first appearance at the NCAA indoor championships after participating in the national outdoor meet in both 2017 and 2018. Her times of 57.11 seconds in the 400 and 25.32 seconds in the 200 are program records.

Lundin competed in the 800-meter run as she was participating in the national meet for the first time in her collegiate career. She crossed the finish line in 2:17.11 and placed 13th out of 20 runners. Lundin was 3.57 seconds out of qualifying for Saturday's event final. Her personal-best time of 2:14.93 is just two-tenths of a second off the team record.
