Miss MD Takes After Mother


EASTON, Md. (AP) - This year's Miss Maryland takes after her mother.

During preliminary competitions Thursday night in The Miss America pageant, Miss Maryland Jade Kenny of Madison won the swimsuit competition. When Kenny's mother Missy Kenny was 17 she entered the Miss Maryland pageant and won the bathing suit competition. Jade Kenny had joked about that fact because she hadn't won that part of the pageant.

The 23-year-old Kenny is from Allegany County. She has a sports broadcasting degree from the University of Alabama and works in advertising and marketing at CBS Sports. She was recently a cheerleader for the Washington Wizards.

The next Miss America will be crowned during Sunday night's nationally televised finale.
