USI alum, Dave Baumeyer, helps groom local Olympian

University of Southern Indiana

From his time as a college cheerleader and member of Sigma Tau Gamma at the University of Southern Indiana to his career as head swim coach at F.J. Reitz High School, Dave Baumeyer’s journey to coaching the record-breaking Olympian Lilly King was anything but ordinary.

Lilly King graduated from F.J. Reitz High School in 2015, has continued her swimming career at Indiana University Bloomington and will represent the United States as a member of the U.S. Swim Team during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she’s a favorite to bring home a medal.

With little knowledge of swimming technique, the breaststroke in particular, Baumeyer, a 1980 USI graduate with a degree in business, was tapped as Reitz head swim coach in 2001. He was working for the Evansville Courier & Press at the time, a career he’s held for 39 years, and where he now serves as transportation manager.
