Madison Memorial senior Alex Wowk announced via Twitter and Instagram that he has orally committed to the U.S. Naval Academy for men’s swimming.

Wowk won the 100-meter butterfly at last season’s WIAA Division 1 state boys swimming and diving meet. He finished in 49.50 seconds, a school record.

Wowk’s message: “I am proud to announce that I will continue my swimming and academic career next year at the United States Naval Academy. Thank you to my loving parents, amazing coaches and loyal friends who have helped me along the way. Words can’t describe how incredibly grateful I am to have the opportunity to serve our country! Go Navy.”
