ROANOKE, Va. The Berry track and field teams wrapped up competition at the two-day Finn Pincus Invitational in Roanoke, Virginia on Saturday. Headlining the top finishers were the women's distance medley relay team, who recorded Berry's fastest time in the Division III era, and the men's sprint medley relay team, who broke a school record of their own. The distance group as a whole ran solid times in their first meet since Dec. 1.
