Sonora, Ca — Katie May Broderick will have a busy and exciting week ahead.
Sunday night the 16-year-old Sonora High School student was crowned the 2007 Mother Lode Round-Up Queen.
“I did not believe it,” says Broderick. That was her initial thought on hearing her name read before a loud and cheerful crowd at the Sonora Elks Lodge.Okay, there has to be one more girl, because it is not me.”
The judges gave Broderick the top score in the speech, appearance and photogenic categories of the competition.
Jessica Haynie was first runner-up. She also won the congeniality award, horsemanship competition and was recognized for selling the most tickets.
Missi Elliot was second runner-up, and Melissa Hankins was third runner-up.
