Benson Wins All-Around at UW-Eau Claire

It was Wisconsin-Eau Claire's turn to find out what kind of good season Courtney  Benson is having. The Piper gymnast scored 36.075 to win the All-Around title at the UW-Eau Claire Invite Friday night. Benson won the Floor Exercise with a score of 9.425. She was fifth in the Balance Beam, tied for eighth in the vault and finished 13th on the Uneven Parallel Bars. That was enough to wrestle the All-Around crown away from the Blugolds' Olivia Aschenbrunner, who finished with 35.825.

Hamline finished third in the four-team meet with 173.125 points.

In addition to Benson, Jacklyn Clement tied for fourth in the Vault (9.325) while Rachel Henrickson did the same on the Uneven Parallel Bars (8.700). 

Hamline's next meet is at Winona State on January 21.
