Senior distance runners Russia Pyle and Cecilia Tellez have shared quite a bit of success during their careers with the Brownsville Hanna track and cross country programs.

They hope that success continues for them at the next level.

Pyle and Tellez will remain teammates after signing their national letters of intent to run cross country and track at Bethel University on Thursday afternoon at the Hanna High School auditorium.

Bethel is an NAIA school located in McKenzie, Tennessee.

With the campus far from home, the decision to sign there was both thrilling and nerve-racking, but there is a deep connection with the school as several Brownsville athletes currently calling Bethel home.

“I’m in disbelief in all honesty,” Pyle said. “I didn’t think I’d be able to run in college. I’m very excited about it, especially since my teammate (Tellez) is going to be my roommate. I’m also excited with all the other Brownsville people there, because they’ll help me get familiar with the town and how things work over there — I’m glad we won’t be alone over there.”
