Much of this meet obviously depends on who runs what.... but regardless, this meet will be loaded, and some great battles will no doubt occur. In the 110 Hurdles, the matchup between Asad Maiden of Mason vs. Joey Wilkin of Westerville North and the ever-improving Leonard Staten of Wayne should be a great start. The 300s should also be fun with 8 athletes coming to the meet all under 41, and a few under 40.
This year’s Endurance Sports Wayne Invitational may go down as one of the best ever, and that’s saying a lot, considering who has set foot on this track in the past. Names like Piqua’s Brandon Saine
