2A boys' golf: Layton Christian's Stokes back on top
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Jaece Stokes is back on top, and he didn't have to wait an entire year to get back there.

The Layton Christian golfer won the Class 2A boys' golf state title Thursday at Palisade Golf Course in Manti by carding the low score of the day. Stokes' 70-72—142 gave him an eight-shot victory.

Stokes won the Class 1A title in May 2012 then settled for second place at the 1A state tournament in May this year. But Layton Christian moved up to Class 2A this year, which meant he only had to wait until October for his shot at redemption.

He made the most of it.

Stokes had the low round on both days of the tournament to win the state crown. His effort helped Layton Christian to a third-place finish with 691 shots.

Manti captured the team title with 676 to edge Grand County by two strokes (678).

Joe Barton led the Templars with an 83-75—158 for third place. Teammate Kody Quarnberg was a spot behind in fourth (77-84—161).

Brayden Ward led Grand County with a seventh-place finish (78-85—163). —
