Courtney Benson Earns All-American Honors at NCGA Championships

Courtney Benson finished her season the way she started it -- impressing judges and opponents. The Winona sophomore gymnast  finished second in the Floor Exercise by a mere .05 points with a score 9.6750 at the NCGA Championships in Brockport, NY Saturday. It was one of three All-American honors she earned. Benson, who finished 14th in the All-Around portion of the competition, was 11th in the Balance Beam and 12th in the Vault. The first 12 in each competition make the All-American team. Jackie Clement finished 14th in the Vault.
