"I wasn't expecting much, they just said fourth runner-up and I was like alright, fourth runner-up that's probably going to be me. And it wasn't and it just continued on and I found myself standing there with one other girl and I was freaking out," says Carly MathisMiss Georgia Cotton.

Leighton Jordan, who was Miss Capital City, won the statewide pageant Saturday night in Columbus. Jordan won a $15,000 scholarship and will represent the state in the Miss America pageant.
