Houston County High’s Javaris Michaels signs with Limestone College

One of the numerous uses of Limestone is as a “building material.”

Apparently the college of the same name – it located in Gaffney, S.C. – had that in mind when it recently signed Javaris Michaels to a track scholarship.

The Houston County High student-athlete, who was also a defensive back/receiver on the football team, most recently helped the Bears win back-to-back county track championships as well as the Region 1-AAAAAA title for 2018.

He was also, according to a submitted text, 10th best in the 100- and 200-meter dash, as well as part of the 4X100 relay team that finished third, all at the GHSA Class AAAAAA state championships held in Carrollton May 10-12.

He will also be joining/contributing to a highly successful Saints program overall.

The school recently claimed it fourth consecutive, and fifth in six seasons, Joby Hawn Cup. The Cup, according to the school’s website, is given each year in honor of former Commissioner H.C. “Joby” Hawn, and awarded to the league member that shows the “highest rating of excellence” in conference-sponsored sports; the track team’s contribution to that this past year was finishing runner up in the conference.
