A Leesburg woman and reigning Miss Georgia was a semi-finalist in the Miss America pageant, but has been eliminated.   

Carly Mathis made it into the top 10 Sunday night, but was not selected when the competition was narrowed down to five.  She won the swimsuit competition Thursday.

Her platform is heart health and heart safety.  Mathis is graduate of UGA and Deerfield Windsor High School.

The 22 year-old was crowned Miss Georgia back in June.  It was her third time competing in the Miss Georgia pageant.
