The 2022 CA SCS/RMDA June Age Group meet was held from June 16-18 in La Mirada, CA, while Irvine Novaquatics hosted their own meet in Irvine. It featured some fast age group swimming, including stellar performances by Beach Cities Swimming 11-year-old Gabi Brito. A young sprinter, Brito clocked new personal bests in the 50 free and 100 free. In the 50, Brito swam a 27.70 leading off a 200 free relay, and she posted a 1:01.46 in the 100 free.

The younger Brito also swam a lifetime best in the 200 free (2:14.78) and 100 back (1:11.16). With her swims at this meet, Brito is currently the 2nd-fastest 11-year-old in the country this year in the 50 and 100 free.

Gabi’s older sister, Bella Brito, a 14-year-old, had an impressive performance herself. Bella swam a 1:12.14 100 breast, marking a new personal best. She also clocked a 57.33 100 free, again a personal best. The older Brito posted two other personal bests, coming in the 100 fly (1:02.54) and 200 IM (2:22.08).

Another 14-year-old, Kayla Han out of host La Mirada Armada, swam well at the meet. Han, who famously qualified for the last Summer’s Olympic Trials Wave I meet at the age of 12, swam a 57.76 100 free at this meet, establishing a new personal best. Although her other races weren’t personal bests, Han clocked some quick times. She posted a 2:17.76 200 IM, 4:50.21 400 IM, 2:03.46 200 free, and 4:15.83 400 free.

Rising star Teagan O’Dell, an Irvine Novaquatics 15-year-old, swam a new personal best in the 200 free. O’Dell finished the race in 2:00.84, undercutting her previous best of 2:01.50, which was set at the beginning of the month at the Mission Viejo Pro Swim Series. O’Dell also clocked a 29.04 leading off a 200 medley relay, coming in just off her personal best of 28.84 in the 50 back.

I have not heard of top swimmers on the Long Beach team in years. It goes in cycles, Now, Teagan might do better in the summer meets as they progress. In fact the swimmers have it easier than Brian Goodell that has to run again in the Mission Viejo city council because the city was made to go from at large to wards or districts since the population is 18 percent Hispanic in MV the lawsuit wanted a more Hispanic district..https://www.ocregister.com/2022/06/28/judge-orders-mission-viejo-council-seats-challenged-in-lawsuit-to-be-on-november-ballot/

Heard that 200 free looked super easy and she cruised a4:49 400M IM and was at best in 100M breast at 1:12. Happy for her. Not her best at Trials but bounced back a week after to hit 1:55.1 in 200 yd IM possibly one of the fastest times from a15 year old? and 47.7 split on 400 free relay at California high School State Meet. This girl has versatility. Interesting to see how she will fare at nationals with a proper rest. This picture gave me a chuckle.

Finally Teagan, she seemed to be a bit off during spring meetings but hopefully as summer events come along she’ll be better. Can’t wait to see her in action at Nats and Jr Pan Pacs
