End it at the top

Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - Wildcat senior thrower Julie Labonte has one last shot at collegiate glory, one final chance to end her career on the highest of notes. And when she competes next week in the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships for the last time, she knows it will be emotional. 

But these days, there is little room for emotions. Not when the Quebec, Canada native and 4-time Pac-12 champion is fighting through a lingering hamstring injury while trying win an event she captured as a sophomore.

Last Friday, despite that hamstring injury, she managed to finish fourth in the NCAA preliminaries. It was good enough to get her one final throw at the medal stand. And one final throw is all she needs .
