08 - 09 Early Stats / Who is eligible for Sweeps?

The 2008 - 2009 local prelim season for Miss Ohio is almost over. Only one question remains: who will win the final Sweeps crowns? "Sweeps" are two separate pageants sponsored by the state board; only women who previously competed this season are eligable for either or both. The plan is to give six final titles, however, each pageant must have at least fifteen contestants in order to give three crowns. I believe eight contestants are required to give two crowns at a single pageant.


Quick Stats

* I believe 106 women competed in 17 "regular season" pageants (for 21 titles).

* I think 84 women are eligible for Sweeps; but about 60 of them only competed in one pageant, meaning they are less likely to apply for Sweeps. Only 12 of the eligible women competed in 3 or more "regular season" pageants.

* Of the 21 “regular season” crowns, 14 titleholders won the first local they competed in this season and 6 won their second!

Below, women highlighted in purple are eligable for the Sweeps pageants. The Pageant stats are listed first by pageant (in chronological order) and then by contestant.

*Disclaimer: I am not posting the entire seasons stats to embarrass anyone or provide material for criticism; I think every woman who competes should be extremely proud of herself and hopefully she grows from her experiences.
Pageants are public events and therefore, just like sports they have records or stats, so to speak. Unlike sports, these stats highlight the subjectivity of pageants. Some women win on their first try, others work their stilettos off and could then end up doing better at state; some women place one weekend then not the next! It's possible a woman who places all year without winning could earn more scholarship dollars than a woman who competes at Miss Ohio. A contestant who doesn't place at the first Sweeps pageant could win a crown at the second. You just never know...

* A second disclaimer: As I've said before, I am but one woman and I am my own editor. My alphabetizing is probably not perfect, while I think all my numbers are right, math has never been my strong suit and no-shows didn't always get omitted from my lists. If any information is inaccurate or incomplete, please leave a comment so I can fix it!


  1. Not that it matters because Megan would still be eligible if she were still competing, but Megan Wombacker didn't end up competing in North Coast.. she had family issues to tend to. Also, just a question - since Hollie Hongash (sp?) didn't end up competing in two of the pageants she was signed up for, is she now ineligible for sweeps?

  2. Thanks for the info!

    As for Hollie, I am not sure. Two no-shows is the limit, which is why I noted her two absences. However, I've heard that if she can provide appropriate documents, she could be "excused."
