Dale Schrank Death: Greenfield high school swimming coach, Dale Schrank Death – Cause of Death

Dale Schrank Death – Cause of Death: Longtime ‘community advocate’ and Greenfield high school swimming coach, Dale Schrank passed away surrounded by family and loved ones on Sunday, November 14, 2021.

Dale Schrank was a former Greenfield High School swimmer. He began coaching in the fall of 1970. According to the School District of Greenfield, Dale spent three high school seasons as a volunteer assistant to Greenfield’s Erv Straub in the 1970’s and coached over 50 seasons of high school swim with Greenfield, Whitnall, Waukesha West, and Marquette high schools.

“Dale’s passion on the pool deck was unmatched. Not only did he care about the technical growth and performance of his swimmers, but more importantly, he cared about the people that his swimmers would grow to become outside of the pool,” former SWAT swimmer and current board member, Jack Chmielewski wrote. “As a coach, Dale’s passion for coaching on all fronts was unparalleled. He knew exactly what buttons to push to get every last ounce of energy out of each and every one of his swimmers. Everyone in the pool knew when Dale had a swimmer in the water as his trademark whistle was a level or two above anyone else cheering on deck. When he whistled more frequently, and remarkably somehow louder than the standardized norm, you knew as a swimmer that you had a great race going.”
