Congratulations to the Jones-Payton boys swim team for their runner up finish at the city championships. The team scored a record 342 points and placed a close second to Whitney Young. Swimmers Jaden Olson, Rene Maldonado were both event winners and Jaden Olson broke two city records in the 100 butterfly and the 100 backstroke. 
On the frosh/soph level the JP boys won the meet and were city champions for the first time in school history. Standout swims came from sophomores Rafael Munoz, Nathan Naiditch, Dante Ragozzino and freshman Wilder Stairs. Way to go boys!
