This month, we’ve decided to feature two Athletes of the Month, the sibling duo of senior Isaiah Bell and sophomore Rachel Bell.  This will be a two-part edition, with Isaiah in this portion.

Isaiah has been a member of the boys swim team at CHS since his freshman year.  The past two years, he has qualified for the state championships individually in the 50 and 100 yrd freestyle.  With the season starting a couple weeks ago, we had the chance to catch up with him.

Q1: How long have you been competitively swimming for?

A1: 14 years

Q2: What is it like to be the leader of the team?

A2: It’s fun to be captain; it’s a good group of guys. I really enjoy getting to be on the team with them.

Q3: Are there any differences from this season compared to past seasons?

A3: The team is a lot closer this year.  It’s filled with people that get along really well.  We fit together a lot better than we have in past years.

Q4: What are your goals for this year?

A4: Make it to states again, and I hope to get a relay to go to Districts.

Q5: What is your favorite memory from high school swimming?

A5: The first year going to States, getting to swim with Max, Ethan, and Devon on both of the relays.

Q6: What was it like to commit to Delaware?

A6: It was exciting and relieving to be done with the whole college search process.  I was excited to achieve my goal of swimming Division I.

Q7: What are you most anticipating about going to Delaware next year?

A7: The University of Delaware has a really new program so I’m looking forward to all of the changes that are going to be happening in the program. 

Q8: What’s it like living in a house with two athletes?

A8: There’s definitely a lot of talk about athletics in the household, whether it’s about basketball or swimming.  We both feel invested in each other’s sports, and were always asking about how things are going for the other one.
