Miss New York Crowned Miss America
LAS VEGAS---(WENY) Former Miss New York, Mallory Hagan took home the Miss America crown Saturday night. Hagan, who lives in Brooklyn, held the title of Miss New York for three years in a row. She won the coveted title out of 53 women. Oklahoma's Alicia Clifton was the runner-up for the crown. We caught up with the beauty queen Friday night in Las Vegas before the competition where she told us, "It just means a lot to me to be able to represent such a diverse state. And, I think that the state of New York is more what I'm like as a person, and so its an incredible feeling to know that there are so many different cultures and people behind me there."
