University of Oregon commit Josh Hoey broke the national indoor high school record for the 800m today in 1:47.67, shattering Robby Andrews' 2009 national standard of 1:49.21.
Hoey, who attends Bishop Shanahan, skipped the Pennsylvania indoor state championships this weekend to chase the 800m state record at the Boston University Last Chance Invitational. The former state record was 1:50.57, set by John Lewis (now of Clemson) in 2015.
Christian Harrison won the race at BU in 1:46.83, while Hoey took second.
The senior committed to the University of Oregon alongside his brother, Jaxson, who transferred to the school this year following a freshman season at Penn State.
The Ducks have produced five sub-four minute milers this season, led by Sam Prakel, whose 3:56.89 ranks No. 9 on the NCAA descending order list.
