Georgia Tech sophomore Brandon Gold has earned All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors for his first season as a starting pitcher.

The Alpharetta resident and son of Barry and Kathy Gold, a graduate of Johns Creek High and Davis Academy, was named to the All-ACC third team after posting a 7-3 record with a 3.26 ERA. He had the same number of strikeouts and hits allowed (71) in his 85.2 innings pitched, and his wins included games against NCAA Tournament qualifiers Notre Dame and Virginia.

Georgia Tech (32-23) failed to make the tournament after ending the year on a five-game losing streak, including a 17-4 loss to Miami in Gold’s last start of the season.
