ASTORIA, APRIL 27 — South Fulton track standout Jett Jones officially signed with Quincy University on Wednesday.

Jones has competed in track all four years while at South Fulton, and has produced several top-three finishes since his freshman season.

“Jett has been a leader since he came into our program,” said Coach Greg Gaither. “His attitude and work ethic is outstanding, and he always seems to step up to challenging situations. He is a great kid, and he is one I truly hate to see graduate.”

Jones’ strong suit is in the field events where he has high jumped to All-Conference Honors since his junior year.

“I am excited to take my skills to the next level,” said Jones. “Quincy is a great fit for me. I really like everything about the campus, and look forward to being part of their track program.”

Jett is the son of Jason and Janie Jones of Astoria, and plans to major in criminal justice.
