new lawn problem

After applying top soil and rototillering the entire ground, we applied lime and fertilizer (per direction of our local lawn testing center) and shade mix grass. Within weeks we had a lush lawn and then the rain came....and came.....and came for a month. Patches of my lawn turned yellow and died. My son says the roots rotted from too much water. I am left with large sections of no grass throughout my yard. What should I do now? Summers in our area are stifling with high 90s heat and humidity over 86%. When should I reseed? Do I need to do anything to prepare the ground? The lawn was so thick and beautiful and now it is devastated!
