Lilly King is Second Olympian Trained by Newburgh Sea Creatures


Just as swimmers like Lilly King are taking to the waters in Rio, so are folks at the pool inside Castle High School.

The pool is used by several groups including the Adult Fit Swim Team and the Newburgh Sea Creatures, Lilly King’s former swim team.

Newburgh Sea Creatures Head Coach Aaron Opell helped train Lilly King and he says she was so good that she would out swim him when the two would work together in the pool.

Opell says another Evansville native and Newburgh Sea Creature made it to the Olympics several years ago.

He says Bryce Hunt made the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
