TRACK: Moline stumbles but makes final at USAs

Tucson, AZ -

Arizona Wildcat All-American Georganne Moline ('13) clipped the seventh hurdle but recovered to finish in second place overall in the semifinal round of the women's 400-meter hurdles event at the 2014 USA Track and Field Championships.

The 2012 Olympian finished with a time of 55.51. She qualified for Sunday's final at 1:05 p.m. MST. Junior-to-be Nnenya Hailey finished in 11th place overall, clocking a time of 57.73, only the top eight runners advanced.

Up north at the Canadian Track and Field Championships in Moncton, Canada, Julie Labonté was victorious once again. The 2012 Olympian and Wildcat NCAA Champion, won her fourth-straight title in the women's discus competition.

Labonté's toss of 170-5 (51.94m) was good for a first-place finish. She has swept the shot put and discus competitions at the Canadian Championships (including Olympic Trials) for four-straight years.

Nick Ross, an NCAA Champion for the Wildcats, tied for second place in the men's high jump competition. He cleared 7-5.75 (2.28m) on his second try to earn that final position. He failed to clear 7-7 (2.31m), which would have tied his lifetime personal best, clearing it in the 2014 indoor season.

Taylor Bush, an alumnus of the University of Arizona and an All-American, finished in 14th place overall in the women's hammer throw competition with a toss of 199-5 (60.78m). Bush fouled on her first two attempts but managed to get a fair mark on her last try.
