NEW COMMIT: Alexis Wenger has decided to stay in state for college, verbally committing to swim for the University of Michigan. From Grosse Point Woods, Wenger is a senior at University Liggett School. She swims for Grosse Pointe Gators.

When she was 14, in March 2015, Wenger went a 1:00.02 in the 100 breaststroke, setting the 13-14 girls National Age Group record in the process. She still holds that mark, though has not gone faster since. In 2016 her top time was a 1:00.93. Last year’s fastest performance for the high school junior was 1:02.47.

At the 2017 Big Ten Championships a 1:00.02, Wenger’s lifetime best, would have finished sixth. The only Wolverine faster than that was Emily Kopas (59.54). A 1:00.93 sat at the top of the B final while a 1:02 mid finished just outside scoring range. Her best 200 breaststroke is also just shy of a C final swim.

Wenger’s best times include:

  • 50 breast – 28.28
  • 100 breast – 1:00.02
  • 200 breast – 2:15.25
  • 50 free – 23.84
