Bemidji's Wilcox makes commitment to swim at Division I Northwestern


Surrounded by his parents and others who have helped pave the way, Bemidji High School swimmer Matt Wilcox signed a letter of intent Thursday at the high school to attend Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill. next fall.

Wilcox is coming off a senior season which was capped by the individual 100-freestyle championship at the MSHSL state meet. He also finished second in the 200 and helped the Lumberjacks place second at state in the 400 free relay and third in the 200 free relay.
