  • Hopley won't defend title next year

    Southern Methodist Universitiy's Hannes Hopley, NCAA discus champion in 2003 and 2004 will not be defending his title next year in His senior year.

    On his national championship title …
    “I was under pressure today with this being my last NCAA meet and SMU’s track program being cut, so I wanted really badly to win. It still feels as if it hasn’t happened yet, but it will probably settle in a little later tonight. Right now, though, I have to refocus my attention on the shot put tomorrow.”

    On his future plans …
    “I’m staying at SMU to graduate, and after that, I’ll hopefully be good enough to go professional. I made the Olympic team for South Africa, we’ll see how that goes.”
