Mesquite junior Deondria Murphy is Baylor’s first ever Miss Green and Gold.

Tonight 21 Baylor women competed in the first annual Miss Green and Gold pageant and after deliberating over intermission, judges crowned Murphy.

“I feel on top of the world right now,” Murphy said after winning. “It’s a blessing. It means a lot. It shows that people love me. That if I set my mind to it, I can do it.”

First runner up was Odessa junior Mattison Torres, while Beaumont junior Ambreea Warren took second runner up.

Winners in other categories included, Sugarland senior Rachel Wilson in miss congeniality, Deondria Murphy as socialite, and Ambreea Warren as crowd favorite.

The pageant was separated into three different competition segments including talent, evening wear and an interview question.

Each girl came with a different platform to support in her hopes of making history and becoming the first ever Miss Green and Gold.

“It’s an honor,” Houston senior Silvia Nweze said. “I love Baylor. It’s my dream school. It’s an honor honestly that I at least can run to be Miss Green and Gold.”
