Courtney was Miss Georgia Teen USA 2012 and a semi-finalist at Miss Teen USA 2012. She will be the seventh Georgia Teen titleholder to compete at Miss USA and the second to represent a different state. She is the ninth former Teen to win Virginia since 2000 and again, the second who represented a different state for Teen - the other was Catherine Muldoon in 2012 who was Miss NY Teen USA 2004 but had also competed in Georgia for Teen.
Morgan was second runner-up at Miss VA Teen USA last year and first runner-up in 2017. According to the records I currently have, she is the first titleholder from Lebanon in the southwest of the state.
The semi-finalists included two-time Teen runner-up Davina Seoparsan, past semi-finalists Ashley Day, Alexis Drury, Johanna King (in DC), Victoria Maiden and Elizabeth Martin and 2018 non-finalist Brianna Ruff. The newcomers in the top 15 were Jasmyn Franklin, Amber Miller and Anah Taylor. Elizabeth took advantage of the new rule that allows a contestant to compete in multiple states in the same state pageant season, as she had competed in Texas a few months ago... and Johanna is competing again in DC in a few weeks.
Miss Congeniality was Kati Roberts and Jade Kenny won Miss Photogenic.
I believe this is the first time since at least 2000 that Virginia has had two former Teens and a former Miss America contestant in their top five (or any combination of three former titleholders), although in 2006 there were two former Teens competing and Caressa Cameron later went on to win not just Miss Virginia but Miss America as well! If you check out the link to the state pageant results page below though, you'll see a number of recent Virginia top fives featured contestants who later went on to win USA titles in VA in other states - e.g. four of the 2015 top five of Laura Puleo (Miss VA USA 15), Desiree Williams (Miss VA USA 16), Jamie Hughes (Miss CT USA 18), Brittinay Nicolette (Miss MD USA 18) and Kristie Barlow all competed at Miss USA
2018 third runner-up Cameron Clark finished first runner-up this year, second and third runner-up spots went to newcomers Zoe Lowe and Alyssa Mawyer. Fourth runner-up was Gabriella Pena who is the second Teen to use the rule change I mentioned previously and compete in a second state. She made the top 15 in North Carolina in October (after placing 3RU in NC in 2018).
The only returning contestants in the top 12 were Savannah Marcum (SF in Virginia last year) and Grace Anne Jeremiah (SF in California - the second 2018 Cali Teen semi-finalist to compete in a different state this year). The other semi-finalists were MollyPaige Deans, Jahnai Elder, Blair Oakley, Elana Scarlett and Sydney Spencer.
Madison Ramsey won Miss Congeniality and Cameron Clark was Miss Photogenic.
