Watch Jonah Hoey Run 1:51 Against An Elite Field


Jonah Hoey of Bishop Shanahan held his own and more against an elite 800 meter field at Friday night's John Hay Distance Festival at West Chester Henderson.

Hoey clocked a 1:51.12 to take third in a race that was won by former NCAA champion and Nike athlete Isaiah Harris, as well as Penn State's Domenic Perretta. That time for Hoey is a new PR and a new PA No. 1 time. 

Hoey hung well in the pack and had a strong kick in the end to bring it home in the state-leading time. After a third place finish in a very competitive AAA 1600 at the PIAA State Championships, Hoey has been turning his attention to the 800 for a busy summer of races to be determined.

Watch the race above and check out an interview with Hoey below.
