Near tool acting weird

I have a dataset with shape files (lakes), associated near a point (city) that I want to run through the near tool, to organize them by distance from the city. I run the near tool, and for whatever reason, the lakes that are closest to my point file are shown to being the furthest away. After converting the meters to miles, one of them should be it's less than a mile from the point, but it's labeled at being 29 miles away.

 

 

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what's going wrong here? They're all in the same projection.
