    The 800 meter times compare rather favorably with the times from 50 years ago in the San Diego Area. I don’t recall what the fastest times have been, but I remember a kid named Bob Hose was quite a quarter and half miler in 1964 or so. I think he won State for the San Diego Section that year.

      I saw Jim Ryun last year when he came to Balboa Stadium for an event celebrating his National AAU championship and American record in the mile at the Stadium in 1965. I mentioned that I had seen him in 1964 running the 880 in the San Diego Invitational here. Ryun didn’t remember much about the event, but he said, “There was a guy named Bob Hose” in that race. Hose set the standing San Diego 880 record with a time of 1:49.2 that placed him fourth in the Open Division of the event. Ryun was sixth or seventh in 1:50.3. Both times were among the fastest ever run by high schoolers. Hose was one of my favorites. I first saw him as a sophomore at Clairemont in 1962. He was third or fourth in the San Diego Section 880 in 1:58.8. The next year he came out of the weeds at the end of the season and was second in the state meet in 1:51.7. So what happens? Hose is ineligible at the start of the 1964 season. He became eligible in April. His first attempt was a a 1:56 880 by himself at 6:30 workout in the morning before his classes at Madison, to which he had transferred as a junior. I remember the 1:49.2 but his win at the state meet in the L.A. Coliseum in ’64 still resonates. About 600 yards out Hose was running in sixth or seventh, stuck in the middle of the pack. I thought he was done, but all of sudden Hose veered outside to the third or fourth lane, jumped the leaders, and blazed the last 220, winning going away in 1:53. It was a powerful move by a tough competitor.

      By the way, Hilltop had its share of terrific half milers–Fred Link in ’64, and Jim Gelsomini and the great Terry Rogers in ’66. Remember Darrell Dunafon? He was the first San Diego County runner to break 4:20 in the mile. He ran 4:19.6 in 1963.
