MOUNTAIN VIEW (USA): The course of number one 800 m All-America Josh Hoey’s ’18 season marked him as a prep eager to push limits and swing for the fences of the next levels ahead of him. Seen from that angle, the momentous decision taken by the Bishop Shanahan (Downington, Pennsylvania) 2-lapper to relinquish a scholarship offer from Oregon and turn pro is less surprising than it might seem, although even Hoey’s jaw dropped a notch when his dad first floated the idea. Writes trackandfieldnews.com. He improved to 1:47.67 in the last season.
