Cheyenne Mountain's Sullivan places 12th in state girls' golf
Kylee Sullivan shot a 5-over par 78 Tuesday, a two-stroke improvement upon her first round, to finish the girls' golf state championship at Boomerang Golf Links in Greeley in 12th place.
Sullivan's lone birdie Tuesday came in the 335-yard, par-4 10th hole. It was the same hole on which she scored a triple bogey Monday.
“My front nine wasn't the best but I really came back on the back nine and played really well,” Sullivan said. “I was really happy with that.”
Just a freshman, Sullivan was the 4A Metro League's individual champion, winning five of the eight tournaments in which she played.
“I think it went really well this year; I think I played well and reached a lot of my goals,” she said. “I didn't quite reach my goal at state but I think it was a really good learning experience.”
Sullivan and her Cheyenne Mountain teammates, Katherine Kemp and Kelly Kruse, combined for a team score of 261 to give the Indians a two-round cumulative score of 518. That was good for sixth place and three strokes away from catching Montrose for fifth.
Regis Jesuit won the state team championship with a score of 454. Pueblo South (467) was second and Valor Christian (485) was third.
Pueblo South's Bryce Schroeder and Regis Jesuit's Kathleen Kershisnik tied for the individual title at 3-under par. Schroeder shot a 2-under par 71 to pull even with Kershisnik and won the playoff with a birdie on the second hole. Jefferson Academy's Jennifer Kupcho was third at 2 under and Broomfield's Taylor Dorans was fourth at even par.
Air Academy's Katie Ryall was second among area golfers and tied for 18th overall with a two-round score of 163 (+17). Kemp came in at 165.
In the Class 5A championships at Aurora Hills Golf Course, Pine Creek's Mary Kate Nelson was the top area finisher with a two-round score of 162, which tied her for 27th. Mackenzie Cohen won the 5A individual title with a two-round score of 141 (3 under). Cherry Creek ran away with the team title at 429 (-9), 14 strokes better than second-place Arapahoe.
