Georganne Moline stumbled over the eighth hurdle in last year’s NCAA championships.

Until she fell, she’d been the favorite in the 400-meter hurdles.

“That was devastating for me, and for my coach, and for some of my teammates as well,” she said.

One year and one Olympic berth later, the UA senior is the No. 2-ranked performer in her event entering the NCAA track and field championships, which start today at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.

Moline wants to exorcise some demons.

“I’m so ready,” she said.

With a strong performance from Moline and her 11 teammates, the No. 6 Arizona Wildcats women’s team could walk away with its first-ever NCAA team track title.

“I definitely think it’s the best chance that we’ve had since I’ve been the head coach — the chance at a national title,” UA coach Fred Harvey said.

The reason goes beyond Moline and star Brigetta Barrett — the college sport’s best high-jumper looking for her third-straight outdoor national title — and even Olympian thrower Julie Labonte.
