Former Wolves runner Fiona Benson ran to the bronze medal in the womens 1500m at the CIS (Canadian University) Indoor Track and Field Championships in Winnipeg on Saturday.

Benson, running for Trinity Western University, clocked a time of 4:29.35, a scant 0.11 seconds behind the silver medalist Katie Anderson from McMaster University.  Tamara Jewitt from the Univeristy of Toronto won the race in 4:25.97.

Benson went into the race ranked #4 in the 1500m among female runners in the CIS.  Two weeks ago, she won the 1500m at the Canada West Championships in Saskatoon.  She also placed second in the 1000m at the same meet.
