COLORADO SPRINGS | Vista PEAK’s Kylie Severin made the most of her return to the Class 4A girls state golf tournament by making a little program history.

The Bison sophomore — who shot 102 in her final round last season and finished 34th — instead turned in a plus-13 86 Tuesday in the final round of this season’s tournament at Country Club of Colorado to earn herself a top-five spot.

Severin established a Vista PEAK program record for highest state finish as her fifth place result surpassed the 10th-place finish of teammate Kyree Conaway in the 2017 4A state tournament. Severin finished with a two-day total of 170 and shared fifth place with Loveland’s Taylor Bandemer.

Conaway played in her third career state tournament and finished in a tie for 14th place.

The Wagner College signee and EMAC individual champion shot rounds of 87 and 92 to finish at 179. Conaway was 32nd in her state debut in 2016 and moved up to 10th last season.
