Paxton’s margin of victory was 11 strokes over Worland’s Karsten Simmons. He was the only golfer to shoot both rounds in the 60s at the Lander Golf Course.

Here is how Paxton and members of his group finished out their final hole in the 36-hole championship. Simmons, Cody’s Hunter Hall, and Star Valley’s PJ Horsley were part of the foursome.
Paxton was announced as the champion and joined the other all-state golfers in the top 10 of Class 3A boys for 2021.
Aided by the champ, Paxton, Riverton won the team crown, which is the fifth in school history.
