SHS and MHS alums Benson and Ohlsen flying high on Seattle Pacific U. college team

One has been dominant since the opening tip-off of the season.
The other has sharpened her game to become one of its premier point guards.
Together, 2009 Snohomish High School alum Katie Benson and 2011 Monroe High School valedictorian Suzanna Ohlsen have helped put the Seattle Pacific women's basketball team back into the postseason and on the cusp of returning to the NCAA Division II tournament.
Benson, a 6-foot-1-inch senior, enters the playoff portion of the schedule averaging 19.4 points and 9.2 rebounds, both of which rank her second in the All-Great Northwest Athletic Conference.
Benson is No. 5 on the SPU career scoring list and scored 505 points this season, making her just the 11th Falcon in history to reach the 500-point plateau.
Ohlsen is an all-conference selection while carrying a 4.0 GPA as a biochemistry major.
Ohlsen is enjoying a career year, averaging 13.9 points, 3.8 assists and 3.3 rebounds. She is shooting 91.1 percent from the foul line (72 of 79), a percentage which not only leads the GNAC, but is No. 5 in all of Division II.
