BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) – She was crowned Miss LSU 2011 Sunday, but Tuesday evening a new queen was named. Turns out there was some confusion in reporting the scores. The misnamed queen says she’s disappointed, but she doesn’t want the title back.
Two days after the Miss LSU-USA pageant, Kaitlynn Fish has put away the dress that earned her the win. Contestant number 21 says getting the crown and sash on stage at the LSU Union Theatre was overwhelming.
“I started crying. I was extremely excited. Been a three year dream of mine,” said the junior.
The tears of joy have since dried. Hours after Sunday’s pageant, Kaitlynn was asked to return the crown.
“I got a phone call from the sponsor in charge of the pageant and advisors from Delta Zeta that there was a scoring mishap. And top five contestants report back to union,” said Fish.
She says she was told while her scores qualified her as number one, the judges never ranked her as the winner. Kaitlynn went from being named Miss LSU, to fourth place runner up. She says she gave Christina Famularo, the new named Miss LSU, the crown, sash and bracelet.
Delta Zeta Sorority sponsors the pageant. In a statement, Chapter Director Lauren Whitman said, “Delta Zeta sincerely apologizes for the confusion in reporting of the scores which led to crowning the incorrect contestant at the Miss LSU pageant Sunday evening.”

Fish has seen firsthand the devastation that storms can cause. All of this led Fish to Louisville and to a job she loves, where She can help people prepare for everyday life or for moments of extreme weather. from running around the city, but She’s also gotten a better sense of the weather.

There are days when I put on an extra layer and head out to run Cherokee Park, but I also rely on indoor cross-training like barre classes and yoga.
