Bella Brito #14 on the Way Too Early Recruit Ranks: Girls High School Class of 2025

BCS student-athlete Bella Brito lands at #14 on SwimSwam's Way Too Early Recruit Ranks: Girls High School Class of 2025!


"Brito brings a very similar skillset as Scott to the table, as the two swimmers own near-identical breaststroke times while also having a pedigree in the 200 IM and the sprint free events. Brito is second to only Mellott in the 100 breast, is 2:10-low in the 200 breast, and has a sub-1:59 200 IM and a sub-23 50 free to boot. She projects as an elite breaststroker who also races the 200 IM, as not only is her medley time already among the best in the class at 1:58.9, but she’s also got solid times across all four stroke 100s, indicating there’s more time to drop (and no weakness in any of the strokes). Despite that, we can’t ignore her freestyle ability, with 22.8/49.2 times a strong indication she’ll be in free relays down the line, something that’s rare for breaststrokers. A few of Brito’s best times, including the 100 breast and 200 IM, come from the 2021-22 season, which is why Scott edges her out in the rankings."

Let's go, Bella!  And let's go, Beach Cities Swimming!
