Cochrane is home to some amazing sports stars and it's time we gave them the spotlight!

This week is all about Benton! A kick-butt lacrosse player who shreds it up on the BMX track in Cochrane. 

"This 11-year-old athlete loves sports, improving his skills, and has amazing team spirit! He is a lacrosse player with Rockyview Rage and he competes with Cochrane BMX. Benton practices on his own time by going to the school or inviting teammates or friends over. This year he is fundraising his own money to pay for BMX training offered at the club. He supports his teammates in practice, games, and at the track by cheering on his friends and putting his best effort forward!"

Way to go Benton! All your hard work has earned you a mini-golf package from Cochrane Golf Club!
