Hamilton College's Cat Berry '19 competed in the women's 200-meter dash at the 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse's Roger Harring Stadium at Veterans Memorial Field Sports Complex on Thursday afternoon.

Berry finished 19th out of 22 athletes with a time of 25.80 seconds running out of lane No. 3 in the third heat and did not qualify for Saturday's final. George Fox University's Sarah King finished first in Berry's heat with a time of 24.90 seconds, and the University of Massachusetts-Boston's Wadeline Jonathas posted the fastest time of the preliminary heats with a championships-record performance of 23.71 seconds. The ninth and last qualifier for the final recorded a time of 25.24 seconds.

Berry was competing in the NCAA championships for the second year in a row after she qualified for the 200 meters in 2017. She earned all-NESCAC honors for finishing first in the 200 and third in the 100-meter dash at the NESCAC championships, and collected U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association's all-Atlantic Region honors for boasting a season-best time of 24.87 seconds at the NESCAC meet on April 28.
