WHAT: Sue (Vlach) Reifenrath loved sports especially basketball, running, and swimming. As a child growing up in Hartington, Nebraska, she was on the local summer Hartington Dolphins swim team. She moved for college and work as a nurse. Sue returned to Hartington to raise her family and restarted the swim team in 2008. Sue coached, organized, and managed all aspects of the team. She was the heart and soul of the program. The team gave Coach Sue a gift at Christmas time that was collection of pictures and quotes about Coach Sue. Here are a few.
"I would never have gotten this far in swim team if it wasn't for Sue. I love how you are
always cheering me on. I will never forget swim team and the fun I had."

"Our swim team coach had a very big part in helping make the summers of my adolescence unforgettable, and for that, Sue, I thank you."
