Tyrone native Doug Hoover made his mark both nationally and internationally in the sport of biathlon competition - which combines distance running with rifle shooting.

Hoover, 44, who has been the head coach of both the men's and women's cross country and track and field teams at Saint Francis University since 2012, was a five-time United States national biathlon champion who also competed internationally three times in world-championship competitions.

For his achievements, Hoover will be recognized as part of the Blair County Sports Hall of Fame's 17th induction class on Saturday, April 23 at the Blair County Convention Center.
