25 June 2012

Miss Goshen County, Lexie Madden, is the new Miss Wyoming. Madden was crowned Saturday night at the pageant in Sheridan, defeating seven other contestants.


Madden, who will be a senior at the University of Wyoming this fall, played the piano as her talent.

Lexie's platform is "Raising Awareness of the Importance of Physical Activity in Youth." Lexie personally is an active young lady; she has long been involved in sports including basketball and volleyball.

Madden was Miss Wyoming Teen in 2009. She is a graduate of Torrington High School and the third native of Torrington to win the pageant. She is the daughter of Lex and Jamie Madden.   

  Madden is the third native of Torrington to win the state crown. A native of Torrington has not won the state title since 1967 when Patricia Martinez was crowned Miss Wyoming for that year. Patricia toured with the Miss America USO troupe. The first Torrington native to wear the state crown was Elaine Holkenbrink, Miss Wyoming 1953. Elaine was a semi-finalist and preliminary swimsuit competition winner at the Miss America pageant. Madden will compete for the Miss America crown in January 2013 in Las Vegas.  Lexie has the opportunity to be the first Miss Wyoming to win the Miss America crown.  The week-long Miss America pageant is scheduled during January in Las Vegas. The final night of competition and crowning of Miss America 2013 will be broadcast live on the ABC network
