April Wylie-Riesberg Memorial Scholarship

April Wylie-Riesberg was married to former Seawolves Coach Josh Riesberg in 2011, but lost her fight to leukemia at the age of 21.

Throughout her life and her fight with cancer, April demonstrated a positive attitude and gave her best effort in everything she did. She understood the importance of friendship and hard work in school, sports, and life. In her memory, Sarpy County Swim Club honors one swimmer each year who demonstrates many of these values she held so dear.

The scholarship essay typically opens at the beginning of each short course season, and is announced at the fall ice cream social. This $300.00 scholarship will be used to offset the recipient’s SCSC swim dues (it cannot be used to pay for USA Swimming dues, meet fees, or equipment purchases).

The SCSC Coaches will make the selection based on the following criteria:

  • Essay 
  • Demonstration of team unity and leadership
  • Individual effort and attendance
  • Respect for coaches, teammates, and competitors
