Here she is: Miss Oklahoma. Betty Thompson, 22, was crowned Saturday night ago at the Mabee Center in Tulsa. Thompson entered the pageant as Miss Oklahoma State University.
The new Miss Oklahoma is an elementary education major from Davenport. Thompson performed an Irish step dance to "A Dangerous Game" during the night's talent portion.
Other top finishers were first runner-up Miss Edmond LibertyFest, 23-year-old Damaris Pierce; second runner-up Miss University of Oklahoma 19-year-old Alicia Clifton; third runner-up Miss Grand Lake, 23-year-old Heather Harris, and 20-year-old Alex Eppler, Miss Tulsa, the fourth runner-up.
Thompson will move on to compete in the Miss America pageant in January. Last year's Miss Oklahoma, Emoly West, placed fourth runner-up in this year's Miss America pageant.
