Lilly began swimming with the Shady Hollow Stingrays at age 6 and fell more in love with the sport each year. In high school she swam with Veritas, Hays Swim Club, Austin Swim Club, and Western Hills Athletic Club. She also served as the captain of the Veritas Academy swim team during her senior year. Lilly started as a volunteer coach for the stingrays in 2013, beginning the junior coach program. She began working as an official assistant coach in 2016 and is now stepping up as the head coach for the Stingrays!
Lilly graduated from Veritas Academy in 2018 and will be a junior nursing major at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in the Fall. She hopes to become a Labor and Delivery nurse or a Pediatric nurse. Lilly’s favorite thing about swimming is that, although the races are individual, it is still a team sport. Good teammates make a huge impact on performance, and that is an aspect that she hopes to see grow this season. She values a strong foundation for the four strokes as well as a fun team culture! She is super excited for what this season holds!
