BCH Sports

Abilene High distance runner Leslie Filorio made her college choice official on Wednesday. 

She signed a national letter of intent to run for Dallas Baptist University. 

Filorio’s personal best times are a sub-2:20 in the 800m, 5:25 in the 1600m and 19:28 in 5K cross country. 

Deciding where to go to college is hard, but Dallas Baptist seemed like the right spot for Filorio. 

Leslie Filorio said, “When I visited the campus, I fell in love with it and the whole program. Everyone is so passionate about it, and it was so Christ oriented. It’s full of really good people, and I felt compelled to run for them.” 

Filorio plans to study history and law at Dallas Baptist. 

The Patriots Cross Country teams are getting ready to run at Nationals this week.
