Longtime Blue Valley District Swim Coach Greg House Dead At 61

Greg House, whose swimming teams in the Blue Valley District high schools won 20 state swimming and diving state championships, including last season’s Kansas 5-1A girls’ title by Blue Valley High School, died Monday after battling lung cancer.

House was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer in May. Close friends indicated that he was doing good the first month or two after learning of the diagnosis, but he took a turn for the worse last month, including suffering a series of strokes.

House was hired by the Blue Valley School District in 1983. Over the years he taught psychology and social studies at Blue Valey High School, blue Valley North, Blue Valley Northwest and Blue Valley West.
