Daniel Pietsch, a redshirt junior at Georgia Tech and Seabury Hall graduate, finished sixth in the 400-meter dash at the Atlantic Coast Conference track and field championships on Saturday in Miami with a time of 46.93 seconds.

Pietsch, the NCAA Division III national champion for Emory University in 2016, also ran a leg on the Ramblin’ Wreck’s 4 x 400 relay that finished fourth in the ACC meet in 3:09.08, a season best.

Pietsch was just 0.02 out of fourth place in the ACC 400 final. He gains second-team all-ACC honors for the finish.

Pietsch will now wait to see if his time qualifies for the NCAA East Regional in Tampa, Fla., May 24-26. The NCAA Division I Outdoor Championships are June 6-9 in Eugene, Ore.
