By BRAD EMONS • OBSERVER Staff Writer • June 7, 2009

Wayne Memorial’s Renaldo Powell hopes to put his name on a Midwest Meet of Champions 110-meter hurdles list that also includes current NFL wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. and former NFL standout safety Rod Woodson.

Powell, the Division 1 state champ in the 110 highs (14.13), will be among a select company of the best track and field seniors from Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois for the Midwest meet, which will be held Saturday, June 13, at Jackson’s Withington Stadium.

“I’m real excited. I know I’ll run my fastest time and I think I can win both events,” said Powell, who was also third in the Division 1 state finals in the 300 hurdles (38.73).

Also expected to compete are Division 1 boys pole vault state runner-up Derik Peterman of Livonia Churchill and Division 1 girls 1,600 state second-place finisher Courtney Calka of Livonia Stevenson.
