NEW YORK – The captain of the swim team for Providence School decided to wear nothing but a Speedo when he asked for a date to the prom.

But Chase Benton didn't pop the surprise question in Jacksonville.

He did it Tuesday in the middle of snow-covered Central Park during their senior class trip to New York City.

And yes, she said yes. 

News4Jax Meteorologist Rebecca Barry said it was 29 degrees in Central Park at the time of the promposal -- Brr! 

Later, the students enjoyed a musical at one of the city's famous theaters.
