Miss Mississippi 2010: Round 1 Results

VICKSBURG, Miss. (WLBT) - The first night of preliminary competition at the Miss Mississippi Pageant is over at the Vicksburg Convention Center.

There were ties Wednesday night in both talent and swimwear.

15 contestants competed in the talent preliminary.

From the piano to dance and vocalists the judges had their work cut out.

Megan Miller, Miss Rankin County Southwest, is back for the second time to compete for the title.

This is her first preliminary win.

Miller says she is a walking miracle.

"I chose that song because on November 8th, I was involved in a nearly fatal car accident so I do believe there are guardian angels watching out for all of us." Miller said.

A winner in the talent competition is Ashley Brook Wieronski, Miss Heritage.

Wieronski has performed on the Miss Mississippi stage as a child but this is the first time as a contestant.

"You can also tell my passion from that song just the way that I love to sing I think it was a great song selection for me personally." Wieronski said.

In swimwear, another tie Wednesday night.

A repeat win for Danielle Smith, Miss Mid South.

"I play it through my head over and over again while I'm working out and imagine what it would be like and that's always my motivation. But when they actually said it I king of stopped and looked around and said did they say my name?" Smith said.

Smith was also first runner up in 2009 round one of preliminary competition goes into the history books.

Swimwear was the first win for Mary Margaret Roark, Miss Meridian.

"Second year in a row to win a swimwear preliminary what is it like? Oh it is just overwhelming, like excitement, accomplishment, everything, it really is." Roark said.
