ATLANTA (June 1) — Georgia Tech’s Bryan Swarn ran the seventh-fastest time of the day to reach the finals of the 400 meters and then anchored Tech’s 4×400-meter relay team that also advanced to the finals at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Duke’s Wallace Wade Stadium.

Swarn, a sophomore from Englewood, Colo., finished third in his heat as he posted his second-best time ever in the 400 meters at 45.58. Teammate Michael Johnson ran 46.80 and failed to advance.

Swarn and Johnson teamed with Aaron Sink and Sharif Azim to record a time of 3:05.30 and grab the eighth and final spot in the final. The Tech quartet entered the NCAA meet with the nation’s fourth-fastest qualifying time.
