Congratulations to the New Miss Miami Valley, Sophia Davis!

Tonight at the Montgomery County Fair Miss Ohio Melanie Murphy emceed, entertained the crowd and gave away her local title of Miss Maumee Valley. [Left, Miss Miami Valley’s old and new: Melanie and Sophia Davis. Click to enlarge.]

Miami University of Ohio Communications major, Sophia Davis won awards for Outstanding Swimsuit, Talent and Interview in addition to the title Miss Miami Valley! For talent she performed an energetic dance to “Hit Me With a Hot Note” and her platform is the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program. Next summer she will try for the title of Miss Ohio a second time; this past July she competed as Miss Mansfield.

First Runner-up Nanciann Strosnider was also at Miss Ohio this past July as Miss Portsmouth. Tonight for her talent she sang “Once Upon a Time” from the musical Brooklyn; this was the song she performed her first year at Miss Ohio, when she was Miss South Central Ohio. Nanciann advocated Arts Education and is studying Musical Theatre at Elon University.

The Second Runner-up was Lauren Hogan. She sang “I Could Have Danced All Night” from My Fair Lady. Lauren’s platform is “Risky Business: Preventing High Risk Behaviors in Today’s Youth.” Like me, Lauren is a Bowling Green Falcon; she studies Interpersonal Communications.

The contestant order was as follows:

#1. Amee Everman
#2. Emily Cousino
#3. Ashley Brown
#4. Nanciann Strosnider
#5. Samantha Maxwell
#6. Amy Allen
#7. Sophia Davis
#8. Mellissa Marksberry
#9. Ashley Hartman
#10. Nicole Budzinski
#11. Allison Bencar
#12. Lauren Hogan

It was a very cold, rainy night outside in a tent and a very long day… I am so tired! More commentary and photos will be added later.

Congratulations again to Sophia, all the contestants and E.D. Ronda Morris and her crew!
