    Raleigh, N.C. -

    Swimmer Brandon Kingston was named to the 2013 Capital One Academic All-District At-Large Team. Originally from Ontario, Canada, Kingston carried a 3.8 GPA his final year and graduated from NC State this past Saturday with a degree in biological science.

    Kingston garnered All-America honors at the 2013 NCAA Championships as a member of the 800 freestyle relay team. He swam the fourth-best time in school history in the 500 freestyle, seventh-best in the 200 freestyle, eighth-best in the 1650 freestyle and ninth-best in the 100 freestyle as well. He is also a member of the school-record 800 freestyle relay team.

    He competed at the Canadian Olympic Trials in 2012 in the 200, 400 and 1500 freestyle events, and is a four-time All-ACC Academic Team selection.

    The 2013 Capital One Academic All-District® At-Large Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, have been released to recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Capital One has been the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA's Academic All-America teams programs since 2011.

    First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
