The Bill Rietz Scholarship was established by the officers of the Delaware Aquatic Racing Team Stingrays (DARTS) to recognize the service of Coach Bill. DARTS is a summer league program for competitive swimming and diving. Coach Bill began coaching DARTS in 1979 and continues to coach Stingray swimmers today. The funds generated by fundraisers and contributions allow for an annual scholarship to be awarded to a graduating senior from a Delaware County high school who participated in DARTS.
