Skylar was first runner-up to Karly Knaus last year and Abby was third runner-up. According to my records Skylar is the first Teen runner-up to win Miss the following year since at least the 1990s. Abby is the third returning runner-up to win the Teen title in the past four years. And Wisconsin hasn't had a pair of blondes win since 2009!
A fourth Teen first runner-up McKenna Collins was a semi-finalist, as were two other Teen runners-up Natalie Hamilton (who I thought was going to make the top five easily! probably the biggest shocker for me) and Marissa Nelson.
In Teen, all four 2016 runners-up returned to the top five. First runner-up Brittany Georgia was fourth runner-up last year & 2nd runner-up in 2015. Second runner-up Sloan Schmitz repeated her placement from last year. Third runner-up went to Grace Mackey-Natz, a 2016 semi-finalist and fourth runner-up in 2015. Newcomer Alexis Bennett was fourth runner-up.
