The Passing of Blaine Thompson

It is with great sadness that I announce that Blaine Thompson, longtime Head Track and Field Coach and Men’s Cross Country Coach at Green Valley High School passed away peacefully Sunday night, January 18, from complications due to pancreatic cancer.  Blaine was diagnosed on Thanksgiving weekend, and since that time, we have seen the Nevada Track and Field Community put aside Divisional, Regional and North / South rivalries and come together to support one of our own.  The outpouring of compassion and caring has been beautiful to see. 



Blaine, like many of us who coach in Nevada, coached because he believed it was the best way to teach young men and women how to be successful in life. And that list of young men and women is long.  



I’m tired of hearing that Nevada is the worst at everything.  Because I know, that when real life happens, the Nevada Track and Field community steps up and embraces the coaches and athletes who make up our community.



This is life.  If we want to live, then sometime we die.  If we want to have great joy, we open the door to great sadness.  Blaine lived life to the full.  Let’s celebrate his life while we grieve the loss of his presence.
 
And when we go to the line, or step in the ring, or stand at the end of the runway, let’s be proud that Nevada Track and Field has people like Blaine Thompson, a lover of athletes and a competitor at heart, a coach who loved competition and the things it taught us about life. And that our sport teaches us about life.



Blaine’s friend,



Mark Fordney
