Powell finished in third place in Heat 2, clocking in a 45.47 (45.462), and edging out Georgia’s Elijah Goodwin (45.465). Powell’s time was fourth best overall as Texas’ Jonathan Jones (44.97), North Carolina’s A&T’s Randolph Ross (44.43) and Florida’s Champion Allison (44.29) finished in the top three. Florida’s Ryan Willie (45.470), Texas A&M’s Emmanuel Bamidele (45.53), Ohio State’s Tyler Johnson (45.58) and Oklahoma’s Richard Kuykendoll (45.59) rounded out Friday’s championship field.

Powell was in fourth for most of Heat 2 before pulling out into the third place in front of Bamidele down the stretch.

The Miners will have a men’s 400-meter competitor advance to the final for the second consecutive season after Sean Bailey advanced in 2021. Bailey finished ninth, earning second team All-American honors.

Powell’s personal best is a 44.87 at the West Prelims a few weeks ago in Fayetteville, Ark.
