Honestly, your ECs are pretty solid. Consider a 3-step priority procedure:

-Academics

-ECs

-Sports

The main reason why CollegeVine gives you a 5% for Brown is mainly due to the SATs and your GPA. Frankly, your GPA is more or less decent. The only thing you should brush up on is your SAT score and then, I'm sure your chances are going to go up significantly. Try the AP International Diploma criteria if you haven't already. Also, again, if you haven't already, take a look at Brown's AP requirements.
