SALT LAKE CITY -- The Bonneville High Lakers didn't quite get the ultimate prize they sought at the state 4-A boys tennis championships, but they put a cap to a successful 2013 season at Saturday's semifinal and final rounds of action.
And they made sure Jay Walter got his due.
While Bonneville and defending champion Timpview met in three semifinal-round matchups this morning at Utah's Eccles Tennis Center, Mountain View an Logan were lurking in the shadows.
When the dust had settled after the finals, it was the Mountain View Bruins who won the title with 16 points.
Logan finished second with 14 points, followed by Timpview (13) and Bonneville and Woods Cross (12 each).
The Lakers' Walter, who made the state finals match at No. 2 singles in 2010 and 2012 only to be denied in the final, followed through on Saturday with a pair of wins and the No. 2 championship trophy.
Walter, who also reached the state quarterfinals in 2011, defeated Timpview's Paul Monson, 6-0, 6-2 on Saturday, then took on Mountain View's Aldo Maldonado in the final.
Walter would not be denied, winning 6-1, 6-4 to hoist the trophy.
Bonneville coach Katy Hall said all year that Lakers senior Parker Jones and Walter were the dynamic duo, and Jones came up a round short in his bid to join Walter.
At No. 1 singles, Jones fell to Timpview's Matthew Pearce, 6-1, 6-2 in the semifinals. Pearce then fell to Mountain View's Jon Dollahite in the championship, 6-4, 6-3.
At No. 3 singles, Mountain View's Manuel Ortiz topped Austin Kirk of Woods Cross, 6-1, 6-2, in the final match.
At No. 1 doubles, Bonnevilles duo of Tyler Heaton and Bobby Crofts fell in the semifinals to Timpview's Joshua Harrison and Zack Simpson, 6-2, 7-5. The Timpview duo then had little left, and fell to Logan's Jordan Larsen and Hunter Ballam, 6-3, 6-4, in the final.
At No. 2 doubles, Logan's Andrew Hopkins and James Larsen defeated Woods Cross' Ethan Johnson and Colin Cole, 7-6, 2-6, 6-1, for the title.
* JUAN DIEGO SOARS: At St. George, the Kempin brothers led Juan Diego to the 3-A title at Green Valley Tennis Club.
Juan Diego was first, with Desert Hills second and Snow Canyon third.
