Miss Scenic City Kyndall Covington of Memphis and Miss Tennessee Crossroads Tillery Throckmorton of Nashville were the co-winners of Thursday’s Swimsuit Preliminary at the Miss Tennessee Pageant in Jackson.
Miss Covington, a 21-year-old junior at the University of Memphis majoring in elementary education, successfully defended her swimsuit title since she won it last year as Miss Metropolitan and eventual fourth runner-up.
It was also the second in as many nights that an area contestant won the Swimsuit Award since Chattanooga’s Hannah Disterdick was the victor Wednesday night representing Shelby County.
The final round of preliminaries will take place on Friday night leading up to Saturday’s finale when Miss Tennessee 2012 will be crowned.
The pageant is being aired online at www.livestream.com/eplustv6 at 9 ET/8 CT
