NEW COMMIT: NC State has added yet another weapon to its already-loaded recruiting class for 2023, this time landing a verbal commitment from Bella Answeeney of Odessa, Florida.

She will join Madeleine Hebert, Tyler Driscoll, Abby WoolfordHayley Clark and Keelan Cotter in Raleigh as a member of the Wolfpack’s Class of 2027.

Her best times include:

  • 100 fly – 54.06
  • 200 fly – 1:57.34
  • 100 back – 55.94
  • 200 back – 2:00.55
  • 100 free – 51.91
  • 200 free – 1:51.94

Answeeney trains year-round with Team Velocity and placed 20th in the 100 fly at Juniors East back in December. She also collected seven gold medals at the AAU Junior Olympics last summer.

A rising senior at George Steinbrenner High School, Answeeney is a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American.

Answeeney’s top time in the 200 fly is already fast enough to score in the B-final at last season’s conference meet for the Wolfpack. NC State finished second overall in the team standings at the 2022 ACC Championships behind Virginia.
