Sonora, CA — We have a new Mother Lode Roundup Queen.
Sylvana Talamantes was Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Talamantes was crowned the queen in front of a packed house at the Sonora Opera Hall Sunday night.
“The girls that I competed against were amazing contestants,” said Talamantes. “I truly feel like I made a bond with them. It was wonderful contest and I feel I’m extremely blessed.”
Talamantes, 18, is a senior at Oakdale High School. She was also the 2012 La Grange Rodeo Queen. Other contestants were Courtney Blackmore, Evon Meckler, Paige Ryan and Rachelle Snitchler. The Roundup Queen coronation ceremony is a kickoff to a big week of events.
