 A top hurdler from Coastal Carolina, Keishaun Limehouse, has announced he will join the Virginia Tech track and field team.

Virginia Tech track and field and cross country director Dave Cianelli announced Tuesday that Keishaun Limehouse has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Hokies for the 2017-18 season.


Limehouse, a native of Moncks Corner, S.C., is a transfer from Coastal Carolina where he earned All-Sun Belt honors and qualified for the NCAA East Preliminaries in the 110-meter hurdles.

“I think that Keishaun will be a great asset to our program,” commented Virginia Tech sprints and hurdles coach Tim Vaught. “He will be a very strong competitor in the hurdles this coming season and I am so excited to start working with him this fall.”

Limehouse is set to enroll this fall at Tech. The rising sophomore owns personal best times of 8.10 in the 60-meter hurdles, 13.88 in the 110-meter hurdles and 10.81 in the 100-meter dash – all as a freshman for the Chanticleers.

“To be a part of a family-based organization which values the true meaning of sacrifice to achieve mutual goals is a blessing,” Limehouse stated. “To be a part of a team of this elite caliber is an accomplishment. Every athlete has their window of opportunity – and this is my opportunity to hone my skill so I may achieve imaginable results. I’m confident that Virginia Tech will get me there, and I’m excited to see what the future holds!”

His senior year at Berkeley High School, he was a state champion (SCHSL, AAA) in the 110-meter hurdles.
