Senator Obhof presents a resolution to Lexington High School cross country coach, Denise Benson, on the floor of the Ohio Senate

State Senator Larry Obhof (R-Medina) today honored Lexington High School cross country coach Denise Benson with a resolution on behalf of the Ohio Senate for being named Coach of the Year by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. 

"Remarkably, Coach Benson led both the Lexington High School boys and girls cross country teams to Division II state championships," said Obhof. "She is truly an outstanding role model for these runners and we thank her for her dedication to Lexington's student-athletes." 

The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association selected the Coach of the Year based on their teams’ performance throughout the 2015 cross country season. Among the factors taken into consideration were team score and placement at the state championships, margin of victory, performance against rankings if available, individual championships, and how their teams’ performances compare to previous years.
