Lilly King was born and raised in Evansville, Indiana, the daughter of Mark and Ginny King. Mark ran track and cross-country at Indiana State University and Ginny swam for Eastern Kentucky University and Illinois State University. King’s younger brother Alex is a walk-on swimmer at the University of Michigan. 

Lilly King attended FJ Reitz High School, where the school’s swim team shared Lloyd Pool with five other teams. The lanes at Lloyd Pool were often crowded with swimmers below King’s ability, so in order to help compensate, King added several morning practices a week with the local masters’ team and joined a competitive swim team called the Newburgh Sea Creatures.

King attended Indiana University Bloomington, where she competed for the Indiana Hoosiers swimming and diving team.

At the NCAA Women’s Division I Swimming and Diving Championships during her freshman year, she has crowned the NCAA Champion in the 100-yard breaststroke (56.85) and 200-yard breaststroke (2:03.59). The performance established King as one of the best short course yards breaststroke swimmers in history, setting the American, NCAA, NCAA Meet, U.S. Open, Indiana school, Big Ten, and Georgia Tech Pool records in winning the NCAA titles. 

That same freshman year she was named the Big Ten Swimmer of the Year, earned four All-America honors, First-Team All-Big Ten, and Big Ten Freshman of the Year. King continued her elite success by claiming the 100-yard breaststroke and 200-yard breaststroke titles throughout her collegiate career and was only the 2nd woman to ever to sweep the two events for all four years. As a senior, she won the Honda Sports Award as the nation’s best female swimmer.
