Triana was Miss Oklahoma 2017 and is the first Miss Oklahoma to win Miss Oklahoma USA since Miss Oklahoma 1992 DuSharme Carter won Miss OK USA in 1995! Triana will be the fourth Miss OK USA to have also competed at Miss America - the other two are Mignon Merchant (Miss OK USA 1983/Miss OK 1986) and Maya Walker (Miss CO 1988/Miss OK USA 1992). She was competing in the USA system for the first time.
This was also Abigail's first time competing in the USA system but she also has extensive MAO experience, having competed at Miss Oklahoma's Outstanding Teen for four years. On her titleholder profile I have a photo of the Miss OK's OT 2017 top five - Abigail placed second runner-up, first runner-up was her predecessor Miss OK Teen USA 2018 Zoe Ferraro and the winner was Evelyn Smith, sister of Miss OK Teen USA 2016 Hellen Smith!
Both Triana & Abigail won the Interview awards!
The top 11 included 2018 third runner-up Lacey Anderson, past Miss & Teen semi-finalists Sunny Day, Tori Meehan (Miss Congeniality) and Hannah Scholl, 2018 non-finalist and Photogenic winner (in 2018) Danielle Vanzandt and newcomer Kylie Blehm.
The semi-finalists were 2018 first runner-up Molly McKinney, 2016 third runner-up Macy Meehan (sister of Tori in the Miss division), and first-time contestants Chloe Arroyo, Ava Cruchon, Jessica Hockert, and Seyton Thomas .
