I'll fill in these ladies pageant histories another time; for now I have to get to sleep. I'm recruiting for BGSU's Forensics team tomorrow morning at the Ohio High School Forensics State tournament in Medina (assuming the roads get cleared!), then heading down to Mansfield for the pageant! Look for pageant results and photos here late tomorrow night.

Best of luck to all the ladies!


  1. Hope you had fun at the forensics tournament! My fiance is the debate coach for Wadsworth High School. I've even had the opportunity to judge a few tournaments this season. Take care, Abby! I hope all is going well for you.

  2. Hey Abby! Love your commitment to the MAO Miss Ohio program. Just a note, Emily is a pop culture major. She changed it, as most freshman do.
    The fact that you got pics up after the pageant amaises me!

  3. Hey Jeana, I did get a chance to meet your fiance at the tournament. He seems like a great guy; congrats on the engagement!

    Thanks for the correction Lora!
