The Yellowjackets have struggled since, but if Saturday's performance at the Mt. San Antonio Relays is any indication that struggle is over. Berkeley's 800-meter medley relay team of Aisha Margain, Kaztrina Keith, T'Carra Penick and Raqueta Margain set a national automatic-timed record of 1 minute 42.08 seconds. That broke the record of 1:42.
