Triana Browne, competing as Miss Oklahoma City, was crowned Miss Oklahoma 2017 at Oral Roberts University’s Mabee Center on Saturday night.

Browne, 24, is an Oklahoma State University graduate.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling because last year I wasn’t even a finalist in anything,” Browne said. “To be able to come back and work extremely hard and then to win is just an overwhelming feeling.”

First runner-up was Ali Brooks, Miss Queen of the West.

Other runners-up were: Julianne Thomison, Miss Bethany, second; Heather Rasmusssen, Miss Ada, third, and Carrigan Bradley, Miss Northwest Oklahoma City, fourth.

Browne succeeds Miss Oklahoma 2016 Sarah Klein, who will compete in the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City in September.
