The winners of Miss Longview may have a streak going for them.
Miss Longview Rebecca Robinson was crowned Miss Texas tonight. Molly Hazlett, Miss Texas 2007, was Miss Longview when she was given the crown last year.
Robinson won the swimsuit and talent portions of the second and third preliminary night. Her swimsuit was a yellow two-piece with gold trim. She tap danced to the Royal Crown Revue’s Hey Pachuco to secure her place in the top.
Robinson said she was thrilled to have the crown after competing for four years to achieve it.
Never miss a local story.
“I finally took the title,” she said. “It’s been a roller coaster ride because I did not place the first year, and then I was fourth runner-up and then I dropped back out of the top 20.”
She will go on to the Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas in January and will also be featured in TLC’s Miss America: Reality Check, which is scheduled to begin filming in September.
Miss Teen Duncanville Sydney Capello was crowned Miss Teen Texas and will go on to compete at the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Competition in August.
