Brett Jones, an eighth grader on St. John's High School's track and field team, won two individual state titles at the South Carolina High School A state meet on Saturday at Lower Richland High School.

     Jones, who attends the Montessori Community School, captured the championship in the javelin with a throw of 126'2" (nearly 34 feet better than the runner-up in the event). That distance would have been good enough to win the AAAAA, AAA, and AA titles as well (and finish second in the AAAA meet). She also brought home the title in the discus with a toss of 103'3".
