Denison senior Kate Benson garnered North Coast Athletic Conference Distance Runner of the Week honors following her performance at the Kenyon College Classic.
Benson posted the Big Red's lone victory last Saturday in Gambier with a school-record time in the mile. The senior broke the tape in 5:16.43, which bested her previous personal record by 10.34 seconds. Additionally, Benson's mark eclipsed Abbi Boss' school-record time set on March, 8, 2014 by 31 hundredths of a second.
Benson and her Big Red teammates will be back in action this Friday at the annual Denison Last Chance Meet held at the Mitchell Fieldhouse in Granville. Events are scheduled to begin at 5 p.m.
