"I really wanted to go to A&M, but during the visit they were very rude. At first, I didn't want to come to UH, but after meeting the coaching staff I could tell they were dedicated, loyal, and genuine," Bench said. The transition from high school level competition to college level can be difficult for some, but the Jersey Village graduate had little trouble adjusting. As a freshman, she led the Lady Cougars at the Southwest Conference Challenger Invitational with a time of 19:18. At the SWC Championships she finished 15th with a time of 19:19. She ran her best time of the season (19:14) at the NCAA District VI qualifying meet in Denton. Finishing second in the 10,000 meters at the U.S. Junior National Championships qualified her for the Junior Pan American Games in Winnepeg, Canada. Bench ran a personal best time 36:49.46 to place fifth. Bench owes her success to all the coaches, the team manager, Troy Ahrens, her teammates and family, and especially God. "God- that's the reason you do things." This season was another success story for the sophomore. The first meet of the year set the scene for Bench's season. She finished fourth at the Cougar Classic with a time of 18:35.5. At the Rice Invitational she finished the two mile run in fifth with a time of 11:59. In 18:04 Bench finished sixth at the North Texas Invitational. She finished eighth with a time of 19:09 at the Iowa State Invitational. Again, she finished fifth at the SWC Championships in Dallas with a time of 17:34. Her time of 17:54 at the District VI meet qualified her for the NCAA Championships in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. She was the only Cougar to make it to the championships this season. "I had such incredible support. I wasn't very nervous ( at the NCAA Championships); I was excited though," she said. "I was just glad to have a chance to run." She finished her first NCAA Championship appearance in 17:52.1 to place eighth. Now that the season is officially over for Bench she's taking it easy. "It's fun while your doing it, but I'm enjoying the rest." After Bench's back to back phenomenal seasons the Aggies are probably wishing they'd been a little more polite.-Michelle Morgan On your mark, uh... get set, um...go!
